Thunder Struck (あめのスカイサーキット lit. Rainy Sky Circuit in Japanese) is the ninth race course in Crash Nitro Kart and the final race track in Fenomena. It features huge trees, many jumps and it always rains. It is a difficult track for most players because there are no shortcuts and there are numerous obstacles the player has to avoid, such as the spiked swings. In the GBA version of the game, however, the track is less detailed, featuring no trees except for the ones in the background, and no rain, but still has many jumps. It is used in the Aku Cup and the Purple Gem Cup (along with Android Alley and Tiny Temple).
