Tornado Alley (たつまきむらの たたかい lit. Tornado Village Battle in Japanese) is the second level of the first warp room in Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex. It is the first level in the game that takes place in a remote rural area via air camera. Crash must fly around in a glider and shoot down Cortex'stornado generators that are causing tornadoes. If Crash flies into the tornadoes he will be spun around but won't take damage.
Originally, an airplane would have dropped Crash in the level, instead of a blimp.
Early screenshots of the level show how the weather was actually to be nice, with no signs of a dark, gloomy sky.
The name of this level could be named after an area in the USA called Tornado Alley, which suffers from hundreds of tornados each year.
Coincidentally, there is a book called Tornado Alley by the author William S. Burroughs.
In the beginning of the level, Coco can be heard saying "Looks like Neo's using them to make the tornadoes!". This marks the first and presently only time where Dr. Neo Cortex is mentioned by his first name.
