Gameplay of Sled Racing.
|Minigame Location|| Ski Hill|
Mountain Top (During The Great Snow Race)
|Date released||October 24, 2005|
Sled Racing is a multi-player game in which you race with other penguins on inflatable sleds (members often use a Toboggan). The four courses are listed from easiest to hardest: Bunny Hill, Express, Penguin Run, and Ridge Run. Penguins get a token sum of money for placing. 1st place gets 20 coins, 2nd place gets 10 coins, and 3rd and 4th get 5 coins. It is located in four places on the top of the Ski Hill. As of November 27th 2009, members are allowed to buy green and pink sled cars. During The Great Snow Race, players could play an extended version of sled racing at the Mountain Top.
Versions and Levels
Bunny Hill is the easiest track out of the four. Two penguins can race. There is a cheat currently available where it can have up to four but it is not well known at all. It takes approximately 40 seconds to complete this course.
Express is a harder but easy level. It's pretty easy but harder than Bunny Hill. Before CP Trainer was shut down, people could use this level to get up to 1000 coins. It is impossible to reach higher than 20 coins in Sled Racing. This is one of the less used tracks. Like Bunny Hill, this track can have two penguins. It takes approximately 45 seconds to complete this course.
Penguin Run is the second hardest track in Sled Racing. It has more things to watch out for. This is the only track that can hold only three penguins. This is the first track that cliffs appear in. This also takes 45 seconds to complete.
Ridge Run is the hardest track in Sled Racing. It is available for four penguins to ride at a time. In Club Penguin: Elite Penguin Force, this track is used for Snowboarding. This is a very popular track. It also takes 45 seconds to complete this course.
The Test Run is a special run that's available in Elite Penguin Force. On this track you use snowboards instead of red tubes. You have to have a pro board for the Test Run because if you use a normal board it could break, causing you to crash. In the video game, Rookie tries to go down the run with a normal board but it breaks leaving him stranded in the wilderness. However he is rescued by Jet Pack Guy shortly after he crashes. This takes 45 seconds also, but is 2x harder.
Sled Racing upgrades
On the top of the mountain there is the "Game Upgrades catalog" where you can buy the Toboggan (wooden) for 300 coins. You can also buy the Pink Racing Sled and Green Racing Sled. If you enter the game while holding it you get to use it in the game. However, it isn't really an upgrade because, unlike upgrades for games such as Catchin' Waves, it doesn't make you go faster.
It is a special run during The Great Snow Race event. Four penguins are needed to start the race. When the penguins reached to the Mountain Top, they are able to play this course there. This course was more difficult and longer than the other courses. It requires extreme turning and lot of avoiding.
- Hitting tree stumps, missing the snow ramp on logs, or any other obstacle makes you fall off, taking time to get back on the sled.
- Ice patches make you go fast, as they give you a turbo boost.
- Jumps make you slower.
A glitch that occurred after you passed the penguins that clap.
Old Blue Clapping Penguins
At the end of Sled Racing, there are two Old Blue clapping penguins. They are HUGE Sled Racing fans and always cheer for everybody. Once Aunt Arctic 'interviewed' them, all throughout the 'interview', all they did was cheer penguins on. The color they are wearing was available in Penguin Chat 3, but it stopped being available once Club Penguin started. Hackers often try to get this color. According to themselves, they were the ones that named the sled runs.
- After playing Sled Racing, it directs you back to the Mountain.
- As shown in picture, the penguins, if the game ended logically, would get to the Beach after completing the game.
Glitches and mistakes
- There used to be a mistake on the level Bunny Hill. You did not have to do anything, and you would never hit any obstacles. However, Club Penguin fixed this.
- There was also a complicated glitch in Sled Racing to allow penguins to stand in the pathways in the Mountain. You can only do this by clicking on Penguin Mail.
