Air Crash is a "climb up the river" style level with plants around everywhere. The level is filled with water; fall in it and the player will lose a life. Air Crash is the second level to allow the player to hop onto a Jet Ski. Crash can control the Jet Ski, and must avoid obstacles. This level is somewhat harder than the previous river level, Hang Eight. There is a Bonus Round in the level. In addition, Air Crash contains a Skull Gem Path. Air Crash contains the following enemies that a player will face:
Like in every level, the regular Clear Gem is present. To obtain this gem, a player must collect every box in the level. Also, there is another Clear Gem in the level, but to obtain it you must go through the Skull Gem Path. To get to the path you must not die.
