Chip's Challenge Zone, often shortened to CC Zone or CCZone, is an unofficial message board originally created by Tom Patten for Chip's Challenge, which opened August 26th 2008. It is designed for both casual and hardcore fans of the game, as well as discussing other related games such as Chuck's Challenge and Tile World.
On January 1st 2012, CC Zone was relaunched from scratch as CC Zone: The Next Level, featuring a new download database, member awards, and an image gallery for Chip's Challenge content.
In January 2020, Tom Patten announced his retirement from hosting CC Zone and preparations were made to transfer it from Invision Community forum software to MyBB. On January 18th 2020, CC Zone reopened at its current home at forum.bitbusters.club under new administration.
Tom P. originally got the idea for CC Zone when he used to be an active member on a RollerCoaster Tycoon website named RCTSpace under former username RCTtom. He liked the idea of having a large message board with a user community showing off their Chip's Challenge projects, plus having monthly competitions running at the same time for the community. Since Tom P. didn't see anything like this for Chip's Challenge yet, he decided to create CC Zone at first for his own Chip's Challenge projects. But as more members joined the site, he left it open for the rest of the world to share their own opinions and projects within the game.
CC Zone was chosen to be used for voting on Chip's Challenge Level Pack 1 levels back in 2013.
