|Available from:||Catalogue |
The Black Hole (not to be confused with the hand item dispenser or the game under the same name) is a one-of-a-kind furniture item designed to give users more control when shaping their Habbo rooms. It was originally considered to be a fairly exclusive item as only VIP/Habbo Club members were able to purchase it directly from the catalogue. However, any user can purchase them from trading rooms or the Marketplace.
Black Holes have remained in the catalogue since their release date (7th of July 2011) and are located under the "Habbo Club" category alongside the Stack Magic Tile. In the past, it was possible to purchase a 10 x and 20 x Black Hole bundle at the prices 20 Credits and 35 Credits respectively, but this option no longer exists.
The item itself can be placed into one of two states; an "active" state whereby the item is black and impossible to walk on (the most common choice of state and the only one which allows room shaping) and an "inactive" state whereby the item can be both walked over and turns transparent with only the sparkles appearing. There were plans for a 1 x 1 Black Hole to go alongside the 2 x 2 version, but this option never entered the hotel and is assumed to be a staff option only.
Usage in the item have declined during recent months due to the release of the Builders Club command :floor which allows users to completely redesign all aspects of rooms through an in-game editor.
With the introduction of the Black Hole various competitions we're launched to promote this new furniture.

The Black Hole Experience
Make it to the end or be lost forever in oblivion!
We're not sure how many Habbos are going to be skilled enough to make it to the end of this challenge (Puffin, SmoothCriminal and Fozzie all failed multiple times before throwing stuff at their laptops) - but if anyone can do it, it’s you guys!
Complete The Black Hole Challenge ››
You’ll find the rooms by searching for 'TheBlackHole'.
Your challenge is to venture through the rooms, dodging Black Holes before they suck you into oblivion and collecting letters as you go. The letters will be needed for the second room, so don’t forget to write them down!
Pssst! when you unscramble the letters they’ll spell out a well known Black Hole that was discovered in the 60’s.
Everyone that makes it to the final room successfully will score a new, special Black Hole Experience Badge when they’re handed out late next week!
