For the unused Bloons TD 5 Mobile track, see River.

Snake River is an Intermediate Difficulty track in Bloons Tower Defense 5 that was added to the game on April 4, 2012. The track appears to be a raging river with two mouths as the spawn points of the bloons.

Note that there are also small areas of water (coloured dark blue) to put Monkey Buccaneers or Monkey Submarines.


Snake River has a bright, calm, and peaceful scenery. The entire area is covered with grass, rock, and trees. The area is also hilly. The water throughout the track moves in a raging manner.

Snake River, path-wise, is essentially the opposite of Lightning Scar. The Bloons enter the track from the two entrances at top. The path quickly converges into one for the remainder of the track. Unlike Lightning Scar, the path in this track is "wavelike", which does not go well with piercing projectiles such as the Ninja Monkey's projectiles. To show where the Bloons travel throughout the track, a narrow area of the track is highlighted light blue.
