Forbidden Jungle is a combat racing track used in the Kras City Grand Championship during Jak X. The new Forbidden Jungle track is a fairly standard course, leading through overgrown stone ruins, mountainous cliffs and across the shore of a beach. The actual jungle portion is never really visited, but trees do crowd the sidelines and clifftops. Despite its name, it is unlikely it has any relation to the Forbidden Jungle from The Precursor Legacy, rather, its name is a nod to it.
Note that Keira's fifth and final training session at the beginning of the game takes place on only the first quarter of this track.
Upon starting the road will lead straight into a stone structure with an S-shaped floor inside. Avoid using the turbo too much here lest you crash into the walls. The same advice should be kept in mind when you reach the second set of stairs, a little ahead, as the road immediately bends around a corner to the right. Take the bend and use the ramp here to make a jump and land on a broken stone bridge, where the track thereafter leads into the beach portion of the course.
Continuing forwards you will drive into a narrow canyon, so take heed of other drivers as there is no space available to avoid attacks. Afterwards the road will split up for a short while, though neither path is really advantageous over the other. The beach itself is wide, flat and uneventful. You will eventually re-enter the jungle after passing through a short tunnel. The last section is a narrow tunnel through some partly-flooded ruins. The water here doesn't really slow you down and after only two straight corners the tunnel will emerge into an open drop. Below is a pool of water and on both sides (at the same level as the exit) are two grand snake-head statues that spew forth more water. Go fast and straight and you will easily fly over the pool and avoid crashing into the statues. After hitting the ground the finish will be dead ahead.
