Publisher Activision and developer Toys for Bob have revealed a slither of new Spyro Reignited Trilogy gameplay, featuring the iconic Icy Speedway.
For those that don't know: Icy Speedway refers to the second Autumn Plains Speedway in Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage. In it, you fly around a snowy realm while burning down Eskimos, avoiding serpents laying in the freezing water, and navigating through rings.

One of the trickier parts of the game, Icy Speedway challenged players to fly through 50 rings in a certain amount of time, as well as offer other items to collect along the way.
For many, especially us younger Spyro players, the Icy Speedway was one of the most vexing parts of the game. However, hopefully the modernization of the second title and our older ages will make this part of Spyro less problematic.
I remember as a kid doing so bad at these levels because of the timer. So my dad and I had the great idea of covering up the timer with a piece of cardboard to make the whole thing less stressful. And it worked, we started beating them after that. True story.— Jake K (@Jake_WK) October 3, 2018
I always hated the speedways in Spyro but now I'm pumped and can't wait to play the speedways!— Brandon Jolin (@brandon_jolin) October 3, 2018
