club penguin parties

The annual Club Penguin April Fool’s Party has arrived on the island and the zaniness and wacky festivities are here for everyone to enjoy. As always, there’s fun to be had for everyone and things around the island are silly and wacky. There are some free items for non-members as well as some exclusives and secrets for paid members only. And it features the mysterious Box Dimension, a series of wacky and strange new areas to explore in Club Penguin. Let’s dive right in to the Club Penguin April Fool’s Party 2012 Cheats!

Free Item in Town

Club Penguin Floating with Propellor Cap

Wear the blue propellor cap and use the dance move to float in the air.


Your first stop should be town, where you can get the Blue Propellor Cap. This is a repeat item from a while ago, and a colored propellor cap has become a tradition for the April Fool’s party. Remember that if you wear the cap (and only the cap) and then do the Dance move, your penguin will float up into the air.

The real action begins over at the Snow Forts, which is kind of the main base for the Club Penguin April Fool’s 2012 Party. There’s a giant cardboard box portal here that leads into the Box Dimension. You can only enter it when the large box in the middle is open and you can open it by standing on the bottle of cream soda in the pool below. Another way of getting into the Box Dimension is to use your own box in your igloo (if you’re lucky enough to have one from prior years).

Once you’re in the Box Dimension, there are many different rooms to visit. Each one has a different symbol and the portals lead to areas that match each symbol. Both non-members and members can enter any of the rooms except the one in the middle, which leads to a members-only area, known as the Fun House Dimension.

There are a few different free items to get in the Dimension rooms. Here’s what they are:

Box Shoes

You can get these in the Zany Dimension. Look towards the bottom of the room.

Box Costume

This main part of the complete box costume (which includes the hat and shoes) is also available in the Zany Dimension room up at the top.

Box Hat

You’ll find this in the Cream Soda Dimension in the upper-right corner. To get there, you need to go through a maze. Here’s a simple little cheat: just keep going back into the doorway that you arrived from. Eventually, you’ll end up in the upper-right corner and can get the Box Hat.

Other Club Penguin April Fool’s Party 2012 Cheats

Besides the free items, there’s a lot more to see and do at the party. Be sure to check out all the different dimensions. Most have fun things to see and two of them have special April Fool’s catalogs where members can purchase costumes. In one of them, the Drawing Dimension, you’ll even walk around as a sketch on a sketch pad!

The Great Snow Race has finally arrived in Club Penguin. This event is the big party for August, 2011. The Great Snow Race is a very long version of normal sled racing and most of the event is about getting up to the top of the mountain to start the race. Once you get there, you can race against other penguins all the way back down. This entire event will be very familiar to anyone who did the Mountain Expedition from last year. Club Penguin re-used a lot of the same elements from that event. Some might even say that they got lazy and pretty much copied the entire thing, but added a sled race to the end of that. Anyway, here is the complete guide to the event.

Great Snow Race Entry

Club Penguin Great Snow Race - Ski Village

The entrance to the Great Snow Race in the Ski Village.

The Great Snow Race begins in the Ski Village. You can get there by using the main map, or you can travel there by clicking on the poster that appears in Town. Once you arrive, you’ll see a huge sign for the race. One of Gary’s AC 3000 air conditioner devices is here to add a little more ice to the area, and you’ll see a race medal stand over to the right. Walk under the sign to get to the next zone.

Supply Camp

The next zone is the Supply Camp. The main thing to do here, if you’re a member, is to browse through the special Great Snow Race supply catalog. There are some cool items that you can buy with coins, but they’re all for looks. They won’t help you climb the mountain or race faster. Here’s a list of the items that you can purchase from the catalog.

  • The Rocket Wig (with snow helmet), 350 coins
  • Slush Stopper goggles, 150 coins
  • Blast-Off Board, 400 coins
  • Yellow Hiking Shoes, 200 coins
  • Red Hiking Shoes, 200 coins

Club Penguin Great Snow Race Catalog

After you’re done browsing the catalog, head up to the top of the screen (near the half pipe sign) to proceed to the next zone.

Ice Cavern

Club Penguin Great Snow Race - Ice Cavern

The Ice Cavern and the Icicle Wall at the Great Snow Race.

This room looks a lot like the puzzle room from last year’s Mountain Expedition. In that room, there was a puzzle where you had to click all of the icicles at the top in a special sequence to get the ice wall to open. This year, Club Penguin eliminated the puzzle part and made this room a whole lot easier. Now all you need to do is to click all of the icicles. Once you do, the wall will open and you can walk through to get to the next zone. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

Base Camp

Club Penguin Great Snow Race - Base Camp

Hanging out at the Base Camp in the Great Snow Race on Club Penguin.

Welcome to Base Camp. There’s very little to do here, but you can sit around the camp fire (walk near it to see it light up). There’s a big screen here showing the Great Snow Race in action. If you look closely, you can see the racers shoot by down the slope right behind the screen. Once you’ve had enough of the Base Camp, waddle past the sign pointing to the Sled Race to get to the top of the mountain.

Mountain

Well, we’re not quite there yet. Here’s another short puzzle you need to do. It seems that the bridge over the chasm is out and you’ll need to improvise. This is the exact same scenario from last year’s Mountain Expedition, and here’s what you need to do.

  1. Click on the branch in the lower-left corner to lift it up and then click on it four more times to sweep the snow off the axe.
  2. Click on the axe to lift it and then click on it several times to chop down the tree stump. It will fall onto one end of a sheet of ice.
  3. Throw snowballs at all of the icicles that are dangling up above the other end of the ice sheet.
  4. The icicles will drop and flip the stump up over the chasm.

Waddle across the log to get to the next zone.

EPF Members: There’s a secret room in the lower-right corner, where you see a sign that says, “EPF Only” and some caution tape. Walk past that sign to go into the secret room and get a special free item. See below for all the details.

Top of the Mountain

Club Penguin Great Snow Race - Mountain Top

We’re finally here. Once you’ve reached the top of the mountain, you’ll earn a special stamp, the Mountaineer. From here, you can join in the Great Snow Race, which is a special extended version of the Sled Racing game we all know and love. Join in to head back down the mountain on board an inner tube.

Secret EPF Room

EPF agents can access a secret room from the log bridge area on the mountain. Once inside, you’ll find a hidden cave with a viking ship and a frozen walrus inside. Once again, it’s the same room as the Mountain Expedition. But this time, there’s a free item in here: an Infrared Tracker. Waddle up to the top of the room to get it.
