This article is about the time travel machine. For the party room that is part of it, see Time Trekker.

The Time Trekker 3000 (or simply the Time Trekker) is a time machine in Club Penguin, invented by Gary the Gadget Guy. Modeled after a Snow Trekker, it is powered by the meteor from the Marvel Super Hero Takeover 2012, and has been used at all Prehistoric Parties to date to travel back in time to prehistoric times.

As described by Gary in issue 376 of the Club Penguin Times, it uses energy (from the meteor which powers it) to "accelerate a quantum field and create a tachonic wormhole" in order to travel through time.[1] The Time Trekker 3000 takes several days to set a new time period as a destination, although it can freely travel through time to its set destination at will.

It was first seen in-game at the Halloween Party 2012, where it was visible from the Mansion Attic's telescope, while Gary was testing it. It was observed to be flying at a high speed and then disappearing in a flash of light.


  • In issue 376 of the Club Penguin Times, Gary mentions that the Time Trekker 3000 was made from a Snow Trekker which was later turned into an "Ice Cream Trekker", although did not go into further detail.
  • Although it has only been used to travel back in time, at the Future Party, the Time Trekker was used to power a Time Portal to travel to the future. According to Gary, this was because "it takes several days to change the Time Trekker from forward to reverse" and that the Time Portal got to places in half the time. This proves that the Time Trekker is capable of travelling to the future.
  • Gary stated in the Club Penguin Times that the Prehistoric age is the first place he wanted to visit, meaning it would be used multiple times.
  • Prior to its first appearance at the Halloween Party 2012, it was mentioned in unused mascot scripts for Gary that the Time Trekker can travel to the future[2], a Snow Trekker was chosen as the base to appear stylish[3], and that the trekker requires 1.21 gigawatts of power (a reference to the movie Back to the Future)[4]. These scripts were going to be part of, according to a comment from Spike Hike on a fan-blog, a scrapped event that would show off then-upcoming Club Penguin technology, which was later integrated into the Club Penguin App.[5]
  • There is a small carving of the Time Trekker in a rock formation in The Wilds, as seen in the app Puffle Wild.
