On This Day In Club Penguin History – January 26

On the 26th of January Club Penguin has updated in 2007, 2012, and 2013. In 2007 the tour guide feature was released, in 2012 the Underwater Expedition began as well as some other updates, and in 2013 the Age of Dinosaurs igloo background was released.

The one update that occurred in 2007 was the Tour Guide feature being released. Club Penguin’s players that were at least 45 days old could go to the Plaza and take the tour guide quiz. The tour guide booth was originally located at the Plaza but it was moved to the Ski Village a few months later in May 2007 when the Forest became a room on Club Penguin, as it was in the way of the path going to that room. As long as players passed the quiz they would receive the tour guide hat and would also be allowed to give penguins a tour of the island. Leading up to this update some players hacked the Tour Guide Hat ahead of time so there were penguins waddling around popular servers such as Frozen wearing a weird new hat with a question mark on it.

Five years later, in 2012, there were a lot of updates. The main update was that month’s big event, the Underwater Expedition, beginning. Rookie caused the island to tilt due to ordering a bunch of anvils, resulting in the Beach being underwater and revealing the entrance to an underwater maze. Once you completed the maze you would wind up in a secret room where members could collect the Submarine Suit item. Rookie was, of course, waddling around during this event. He had a new giveaway background players could collect from him.


Also in 2012 a new pin was hidden on the island, the Beach Chair Pin. It could be found at the Dance Club. This pin is Club Penguin’s 194th pin overall and is the sixth pin to have been in that room.

A third update in 2012 was the 66th field op. This mission was located at the Lighthouse behind the drums. It was originally at the piano but changed shortly after. The mini-game at the end of the field op was to guide the bot to recharge the batteries.

Minor updates in 2012 included a new login screen for the Underwater Party, a new login screen advertising the upcoming fashion show, the postcards being updated, and Herbert disappearing from the Herbert Cam at the EPF Command Room.

The final year with updates on the 26th of January is 2013. The Age of Dinosaurs igloo background was now available for members to collect at the Prehistoric Party.

  1. I liked the Underwater Party; the decorations were so bright & colorful.
    I met Rookie for the first time in the secret room there, where he told very bad jokes. :D
