|<< List of Tracks>>|
Hot Top Volcano is the fourth track in set for Diddy Kong Racing and it's DS counterpart. 5 Golden Balloons are required to enter the course while 10 are required for the challenge. It is the first course to have the plane as a default vehicle.
The course starts out on a cliff. After falling down, a stone pillar is found. Players can go left or right, but both ways lead to the same tunnel. The right path is slightly longer. They will then enter a tunnel with a lava flow in the middle and 2 small roads on the sides. After a few curves, the exit can be seen, which leads to another cliff. After falling down, they will enter another tunnel filled with lava. A zipper can be found here. After a curve, players will see the exit and enter a valley, where they must make another turn. A lava flow can be seen, along with a zipper above it. The lava flow contains a few platforms that can serve as ramps. Another zipper appears above the last platform. A ramp inside a tunnel follows, which leads to the finish line.
