Hydro Hopper (formerly known as Ballistic Biscuit) is a minigame in Club Penguin. It is located at the Dock. In the game, the penguin rides along on an inner tube, towed by a motorboat (the Hydro Hopper), and avoids obstacles in the water. Non-members can only use inner tubes during gameplay. Members can choose an inner tube, or a wakeboard to use during the game, which can be bought in the Game Upgrades catalog. After a while, players go on to the next level. In between the levels, there are tips, but after a few levels there are jokes instead, and after a few more, simply congratulatory messages. According to Aunt Arctic, it is the oldest game in Club Penguin.

Hydro Hopper first started off as Ballistic Biscuit, a game featured on many flash game websites. The first version (with only one level) only featured humans, however a revised version featured humans and a penguin, a reference to Experimental Penguins, a game also being developed by RocketSnail Games.

On and after August 31, 2007, you can buy and ride a wakeboard instead of inner tubes.

On September 6, 2007, a new name for Ballistic Biscuit was needed, and so through a poll in the newspaper, penguins could choose a new name. On September 21, 2007, Ballistic Biscuit was renamed Hydro Hopper. The other choices for the name were Ballistic Boarder, Board Breaker, Water Yachter and Wake Caper.

On March 27, 2009, a Game Upgrades catalog was added on the wakeboards next to the boat.
