Winter Tundra is the third and last homeworld of Avalar in Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!. As its name implies, it composes of a tundra setting: snow, few vegetation, and a midnight setting while calm music plays. In this world, there is a castle with a long set of stairs and the superportal. Outside of the castle, there are two caves and a secret waterfall. This is the world where the player faces Ripto, the final boss.

World Description

The world of Winter Tundra is on the tip of a gigantic mountain, enduring the cold and ice that invades it. Ice is not a common thing, but some of the caves inside of the mountain do have a few ice skating rinks. The grass in the massive castle’s courtyard is frigid green-blue, patched with snow puddles here and there, with a single underground pond feeding several streams cutting through the area. The castle itself is the largest castle in Avalar, though most of its doors and windows have been barred shut so that no one can get in too far. The ramparts surrounding the giant mountain top are dull gray and almost frozen, so don’t think of trying to lick them – you just might get your tongue stuck!

On the tall wall

  • Winter Tundra is the shortest world in Ripto's Rage!, containing only seven realms.
  • It is possible to swim in the air in this level. To do this, stand to the right of the teleporter to Autumn Plains that is near Ripto's Arena and double jump to the right and around a mountain. You will then have to land on the ledge there, and if successful, you then have to jump outside the boundaries and glide all the way to stream in the cave Canyon Speedway is in. When you get right below the stream, headbash at the right time and you will be swimming in the air.
  • This is the only homewold in Ripto’s Rage! to contain penguins and not sheep nor frogs.
  • If the player looks at the sky background in Winter Tundra, they can get a full glimpse at the moon. However, if the player looks at the sky in the portal of one of Winter Tundra's realms (except for Ripto's Arena), they will get to see various forms.
