New optimized racetracks have been added to Thunder Run Racing! Vikings can now evade the twists and turns of Frozen Warrior, or dodge the burning lava of Nightmare Tide!
 
 
These two latest racetracks offer a new challenge for Vikings on campus! 
Those wanting to speed through Nightmare Tide will have to be weary of every turn, twist, and drop created by the many cliffs throughout the track. Vikings wanting something a little cooler can fly through Frozen Warrior and enjoy the snow covered hills. 
 
Both of these tracks offer quite the scenery! However, Vikings should keep an eye and not get lost in the winding track that is Nightmare Tide. Frozen Warrior, also has its obstacles with the many scattered statues. 
 
Which racetrack will you be dominating first?

I love racing so I was excited to see these tracks added. I've tried them both out and love them. I really like the brand new tracks that are being added. One of my favorite things about Nightmare Tide was seeing the wild Monstrous Nightmares near the end. That was a really cool addition. I think it would be neat to have more tracks that feature a few wild dragons flying in a certain part of the track. Thanks for the cool, new racing tracks. I really love them.

The greatest treasures are not gold,

nor jewels, nor works of art.

They cannot be held in your hands-

They're held within your heart.

For worldly things will fade away

As seasons come and go.

But the treasure of true friendship

Will never lose its glow.

Nightmare tide

Nightmare tide needs lots of help. Extremely poor lighting. Dragons fly slower than on other tracks also. Was it the developers idea to make us fly boringly slow. No one wants to race slow long tracks . We want to go faster and not slower. The rings do not seem to work at all. They make no sound nor do they give any boost. Over the weekend this track crashed nearly every time. Take this track and redo it. Add some light, make us fly normal speed. Fix the rings. This track effects our dragons speed like some of the expansion islands. Slow .  

 

Most players refuse to even race this track track and back out .

Hello.

Hello! Thank you for letting us know about this. Regarding the crashes during the weekend was it only with this racetrack? Did you receive any error message? Did it occur during single player or multiplayer racing? Which platform were you using to race? Do let us know. Thank you!

Ipad

I use iPad, but others were using pc. There was no warning it just would restart the game. Sometimes before race ever started and sometimes during the race. Seems stable now though. Really don't think the rings work though. Many players are backing out of this track. I think the lava and such is cool. Track seems a little faster today.

I agree, the lighting is

I agree, the lighting is terrible and there is not enough rings. The rings only start appearing when you are about i third through the track, like frozen worriers has enough rings and the lighting is fine. I have also noticed that the lighting is terrible in all the  maps, but the training grounds isn't that bad. I think that the admins should try and fix the lighting as well as the tracks.

Yay, so glad they redid Frozen Warriors, so many glitches and places racers could use to cheat. I haven't tried any of the tracks again yet though. It's been a while because it takes a while to load... -_-
