Hot Top Volcano
Hot Top Volcano is the fourth track in Diddy Kong Racing and its Nintendo DS remake, Diddy Kong Racing DS. It is also the fourth and last course of Dino Domain, preceding the boss race on Tricky's Course. The player is required to have five Golden Balloons to enter and ten Golden Balloons for the Silver Coin Challenge (or Balloon Touch Challenge in the DS remake).
The course begins with a sharp drop. There are two red balloons and two balloons only planes can reach. Some bananas are found behind the rock structure. Then, there are two tunnels; on the right, there is a blue balloon both hovercrafts and planes can reach. Hovercrafts fall into the lava after this. Planes can collect red balloons on the main left path, but they can also collect some bananas on a narrow corridor on the left.
There is a large slope after this with a red balloon on the left and a blue balloon on the right. Hovercrafts enter the lava after a sharp downward slope. Planes can use a dash ring on the left. An arch is found here with two red balloons on the left and two blue balloons on the right.
Soon, there is a turn to the left, leading into another room. A green dinosaur roams in this room, being an obstacle. There is relatively rough terrain. Players can opt for balloons and dash rings on the sides of the room or for bananas in the middle. After an archway, racers complete the lap.
