Papu's Pyramid is the home track of Papu Papu in Crash Team Racing. It and the battle arena Rampage Ruins are based upon the levels The Lost City and Sunset Vista (from Crash Bandicoot) as the faces on the side of the walls are the same as the ones on these levels. It is also where Papu Papu is raced in the game. It is in the Red (as well as Crash Cove, Mystery Caves and Blizzard Bluff) and Purple (with Roo's Tubes, Dragon Mines and Hot Air Skyway) Gem Cups. Scattered throughout the course are Venus Fly traps which devour racers that get too close.
This track has three shortcuts which can be very good to get you from last place to first place. All of them are in the second half of the track. The first and third shortcuts are demonstrated in the video below. (The second is on the platform to the left of the jump after the first shortcut, where you can get extra Wumpa Fruits if you need it. It is very difficult to achieve both on the same lap).
- It is possible to jump of a wall near the start and land at the finish line but the game will not count it as a lap.
