Platform Racing 2
Announced on 2009-12-29, the Party Hat was the seventh and final hat to be added to the game before Platform Racing 3 's release. It is also the second holiday themed hat, having the appearance of a stereotypical striped birthday/New Year's hat.
Any user wearing the hat is unaffected by the Lightning item.
Logging in to the game on New Year's Eve or Day automatically adds the hat to the player's inventory. On other days of the year, the Party Hat is winnable as a random prize in matches with at least one other person.
Platform Racing 3
Revealed on 2010-12-30, The Party Hat returned in Platform Racing 3 with a new design, replacing the stripes with spots and removing the fuzzy circle on the pointy top.
Like its previous incarnation, the Party Hat absorbs Lightning, protecting the player from getting stunned and losing other hats.
Users who login on New Year's Eve and New Year's Day are given the hat for free. Due to a bug that caused the dates to change when it was initially released, the hat was also made available as a random prize in the Level of the Day nine months after its release.
