This post is no longer being updated but will serve as an archive for arguably the biggest day in Club Penguin history.
Join me as I spend my final day on Club Penguin. We’ll cover thoughts from you, breaking news and what I’m doing to act as an archive for this special day in the future. Times are covered in PST which can be found at the Snow Forts.
Red is news, green is thoughts, black is my day. Send in your thoughts on Twitter using #WaddleOn and they will be featured every 20 or so minutes.
11:00: The aftermath. It’s weird knowing that we will never be able to play Club Penguin again and it’s been quite an upsetting day. This morning I had to rush to school but now we can really look back at the final thoughts of this, minutes after the news was announced
Is the community allowed to be hyped for the glory that is Club Penguin Island now? pic.twitter.com/7lPj2LUc2T

The second to last thing I said on Club Penguin was "Waddle on". The LAST thing I said was "Somebody say something" bc everyone went quiet 😅

And that's the signal! Club Penguin has closed it doors, but there's always a new start on Club Penguin Island! See you there, guys!

Honoured to have played a small part in a big game.
Thanks to all who played. Thanks to the founders.

The classic, Flash Club Penguin, where it all started, has pulled the plug. When will it be plugged back in? Dunno. For now, see you on CPI.

All traces of Club Penguin have now been officially destroyed except for social media. All media files, gone. The website, redirects to the Club Penguin Island website. But I can safely say:
I have successfully recorded the final day of Club Penguin. Waddle on.
00:03: CLUB PENGUIN HAS CLOSED DOWN. Some got the connection lost message, I just saw that nobody was speaking. I have it both recorded on the app and desktop but right now I’m running late for school. I’ll post everything this afternoon. Waddle on. 🙁
23:50: TEN MINUTES LEFT
23:45: FIFTEEN MINUTES LEFT. We’re remembering the past and celebrating the future as a community at the Snow Forts.
23:33: This isn’t the work of bots. We’re a community.
23:30: ONLY HALF AN HOUR LEFT
23:29: Hard to smile so close to the end but we managed…
23:28: After using the old spam technique, I’m in the Snow Forts. It’s packed with penguins.
23:25: Waiting at the Dock…the end is near.
23:24: I tried…and also the Snow Forts is currently full.
23:15: With famous YouTuber Poonchee! This guy made such awesome videos!
23:10: THOUGHT THIS WAS BILLYBOB. It wasn’t. Still haven’t heard from him about the closure.
23:09: Snow Forts is pretty packed. Even old players are here to see the end.
23:07: On Marshmallow now. Moose just logged off but there is a party soon!
23:00: WE SURVIVED! Oh, who am I kidding, one hour left. 🙁
14:45: Signing off for the night. This will be the last evening where Club Penguin is around, reality is really starting to kick in. I will be back in the morning at 23:50PM PST to witness and record the sunset with you, but still, it’s pretty upsetting.
On a more positive note, thank you for over 2400 views today. This is a record for me with over 1035 people viewing this blog. I had fun hanging out and playing CP for the penultimate time today. Thank you and enjoy the last few hours.
14:43: I have just finished archiving the automatic updated image page. The end is near.
14:40: Final community thoughts

14:39: Honestly, this is the reason why Club Penguin is closing. Pretty awful way to end my final full day on Club Penguin but unfortunately I will not be logging back on.
14:36: These are my last teammates, ever.
14:32: And we enter the Dojo for what is likely the last time. So many memories are here, I still vividly remember the old design. Now I shall enter the Snow Dojo. This was huge when it came out in 2013, amazing times.
14:30: Here’s the plan: Card Jitsu Snow, some community thoughts, archive the graphics, sleep. I’ve played for like 6 hours today but I will be here for the end tomorrow morning.
Also, I really miss the garden that used to be here.
14:29: And just like that, the game I loved for years is a game I will not play ever again. That’s kind of upsetting to be honest. This was my last ever run.
14:20: Is it bad I never really played Puffle Rescue? Not that good at it either, but I loved Cart Surfer. I know that many loved this game and it will be missed but for now, farewell Puffle Rescue. It’s time for one last game of Cart Surfer.
14:16: After 3 rounds, I made 99 coins. Goodbye Puffle Park, I remember how it was such a big deal when the dog and cat puffles came out. Puffle Rescue.
14:12: Goodbye Puffle Park. Last game of Puffle Roundup.
14:06: I was never that good at Dance Contest and I failed at hard mode, yet alone extreme. Either way, it will be missed. This is my last time playing it.
14:00: TEN HOURS LEFT OF CLUB PENGUIN
13:59: Single player Dance Contest time!
13:56: I will never successfully complete another Spy Drill again…
13:45: Back to System Defender.
13:43: Hanging out at the Book Room.
13:39: The end is near.
13:36: Just a quick stop at the Coffee Shop. So many familiar faces. The end is near, too near.
13:32: Just played System Defender…defeated Protobot and I will play against the bots now. I love this game.
13:15: I will miss this game. It’s probably my second favourite. Still playing and will be for a while!
13:09: System Defender and Spy Missions time!
13:04: Back on Marshmallow! Trying to play all games!
12:37: Signing out for a bit to eat dinner. See you all soon!
12:36: Just finished my last ever game of Jet Pack Adventure. Oh will I miss this island. 🙁
12:26: Tipping the Iceberg with Screenhog on Marshmallow!
12:21: On Marshmallow awaiting Screenhog.
12:18: Logged off. Screenhog is on Marshmallow
12:16: Jet Pack Adventure for the last time…ever.
12:10: Disconnected. Logging onto Alpine to place every game now. (Flurry is full)
12:03: Won against Danar435 (gg!) in Dance Contest. Time for a single player round!
12:00: 12 HOURS REMAIN
11:54: Lost connection. Logging into Flurry again. Anyone up for a Dance Contest?
11:50: BREAKING NEWS – WE ARE HEARING THAT CLUB PENGUIN ISLAND IS OUT WORLDWIDE
11:49: Going to be playing Astro Barrier now then Dance Contest. Come join me soon for multiplayer Dance Contest!
11:48: Nicoray has pointed out a little glitch where everyone has the first level membership badge.
There's a glitch, doesn't matter at this point but everyone has the first level badge.
— Nico (@Nicosscp) March 29, 2017
11:45: Hitting a puck around for the last time at the Ice Rink/Stadium.
11:42: With people now having access to memberships, I’m seeing a lot of igloo advertisements! Just like the old days!
11:40: Back! I auto-disconnected (probably for the last time ever). Logging back into Flurry now and going to play Astro Barrier.
11:26: Signing off for a bit. I’ll hopefully be back in 10-20 minutes.
11:21: Time for that extra round of Astro Barrier on the server Flurry!
11:19: Courtney Foreman has kindly shared their thoughts with us.
I will miss CP. I played it when I was younger but then stopped. I wish I didn’t stop but I can’t change that. At least I got to play a lil bit before closing. Now I will be playing CPI. #WaddleOn
11:14: This hoodie was the first item I bought as a member back in 2010. It will also be the last. I have also purchased the Thunder Blade, my favourite sword.
11:11: At the Gift Shop on Flurry buying member clothes! People are pouring in, it seems like it’s almost full!
11:06: WE CAN CONFIRM THAT THERE IS NOW FREE MEMBERSHIP FOR ALL
11:04: BREAKING NEWS: Details cannot be confirmed but we believe that free membership is now out thanks to a message from Cookiezito.
11:03: Connection lost. This is scaring me but I hope the free membership update is out. Logging back in now to Flurry
11:00: 13 HOURS LEFT
10:59: Pizzatron for the last ever time in Candy Mode…never really played this much to be honest.
10:52: Roleplaying at the Pizza Parlour. This was so fun back in the day!
10:47: Penguins are patiently waiting for free membership. Currently hanging out with Danar435 and Yehaw (hi!). Come join us on White Out!
10:42: Time for some more community thoughts from Twitter!

#WaddleOn Since 2009, I've made so many friends and captured so many memories, sad to see it go! Waddle on, forever.

10:40: On White Out. People are sharing their favourite experiences of Club Penguin.
10:38: Lost connection, logging into a more popular server then going to do community thoughts.
10:37: Kinda sad that this is going to be the last ever time I’ll play Ice Fishing. It’s a really great game, had fun back in the day playing it.
10:28: I’m stuck at what to do without membership. Ice Fishing then logging on to a new server to see some protests.
10:27: There have been multiple reports of people losing connection but being able to log back in again. I have not yet experienced this but is this suggesting an update soon?
10:21: Oh, I made it this far and I was quite enjoying it but guess I’ll need to come back when we all get free membership. And I just realised that over 30 people are currently reading so hi and thank you!
10:14: Made it to Stage 5. So close, should probably try this again today. Astro Barrier at the Arcade now!
10:00: Only fourteen hours left..the end is near. Here are some more community thoughts.
We're all going to be a lot more sad than we are now once it officially closes. Speechless #WaddleOn
— Matt (@mattkhouser) March 29, 2017
#WaddleOn I'll be on Club Penguin tomorrow as well. The servers will be known tomorrow, see you there~
— ClubPRYT (@ClubPryt) March 29, 2017
09:57: Club Penguin have addressed the free membership issue saying that they’re working on it and an update will be out soon.
09:56: I HAD FOUR LIVES AND I LOST THEM ALL ON A SINGLE STAGE. I’m not taking this, another round but first we’ll do some community thoughts!
09:48: I’m doing tweets every 20 minutes but my friend Blue21102 has written a great post about his thoughts on the game closing! Check it out!
Ps. I decided to play Bean Counter on the server Avalanche
09:39: Played Hydro Hopper for potentially the very last ever time after ages. Reached level 7, is that bad? I’m stuck choosing which game to play now, I really want to wait for that free membership before I start.
09:26: My puffles have been released. All of these puffles in the image below are now in the wilds.
09:25: Let’s look at our first thoughts of the day. You can send these in by going on Twitter and using the hashtag #WaddleOn if you are over the age of 13. Otherwise, leave a comment!

09:22: Team have just said that membership should be out soon within the next few hours but are experiencing problems as everything is so busy.
09:13: Calling Club Penguin now to remove the other puffles…also will ask them about that free membership
09:12: Just returned my green and purple puffle to the wild. I’m keeping my white one and my dog one because I’ll adopt them on Club Penguin. I feel horrible. 🙁
09:07: Woah, it’s full. I think I’ll hop onto Avalanche first so I don’t experience too much lag. Come join me!
09:00: Signing in! Hi everyone, time to have some fun on the island for potentially the last time. There are 16 hours left until the end.
