Beta Testing on Club Penguin started on August 22, 2005. During beta testing, players could log in to Club Penguin and help find bugs for the Club Penguin Team. Over the course of 2 months, 15,000 beta testers helped find hundreds of bugs.[1]

After beta testing, Beta Testers received 2,000 free coins, 1 free month of Membership after launch, and they got to keep the Beta Hat.

  • Growth was the biggest problem for the team during Beta Testing. Club Penguin had way too many players for the servers they had.[3]
