  9. awesomecandy says:

    yay i cant wait 8) but im a nonmember so i have to wait a LONG time :(

  10. im excited to play the island!

  11. part 1
    first talk to the guy in front of the souvenir shop holding the soccer ball, he will give you a harold mews flyer. now go east to the area with all of the rich people and go to the end of the block and jump in the tree in between 2 branches there is a 5 dollar bill. Now go back to the general store and buy a energy drink then once again go back to the rich neighborhood and talk to the landscaper next to the overgrown bush and give the drink to him. now he will give you a pair of shears and go west to where you find the people ready to take off in blimps, hang gliders, balloon chairs that look like they were pulled out of the movie up and jump up the light house and get in the hot air balloon and use the shears to cut the rope. now you get the leftover nylon rope. go over to the free kite store (if only that was real) and talk to the lady giver her the nylon rope and pick out the kite surfer x250. now go over to the kite area and use the kite surfer where shortly afterwards grimlock burns your kite where you are rescued by mr mews

    • part 2
      you will find yourself in a bed in mr mews’ mansion after talking with you he leaves the room. click the glass of water on the bed stand next to you and get out of bed and leave the room. now go to the bottom right part of the mansion. now just go through and watch all of the videos (you dont have to watch them completely but they are entertaining) now after all of this mr mews will appear after talking to him now go outside and use the helicopter. go to the himalayas and talk to a sherpa (not in camp he is on a cliff a few rocks below the second rope which says “you cannot go up without a guide”) now jump across a series of gaps and tie the rope to the ring by clicking on it. now if you mess up you may have to start over.

      • part 2 continued
        now at the end of this you will find yourself at the monk temple. and yet again go up a series of rocks until you are on top of a building with a monk on it. after beating him at a game of yeti vs hunters. afterwards you can go inside the monk temple and talk to the monk next to the yeti scalp. he will give you a lantern. now unfortunately it is of no use at the moment and you need to find a camera for a yeti foot print which is above the temple on a cliff next too some bushes with pink flowers on them.

    • Whoa! That’s a lot of words. :-O

  12. part 3
    now go off to Ireland. when you get there go over to the pub. go inside and you will find a box of matches and a guy who wants to play darts for a ticket on the rowboat. for the darts game pull back the dart too about the midway point and let it go. as for aiming just point and click where the dart tip is. after beating him you get his darts and a ticket for the rowboat. but again you do not have a camera and cannot take a picture of the (fake loch ness monster set up by the rowboat guy). now go over to puerto rico and talk to the guy with the mustache. after a short talk he gives you the keys to his jeep and asks for you to deliver corn too his brother. while driving around you may find a place full of goats. on top of a large rock there is a guy i will kindly refer too as Goat Man. Goat Man will give you a useful tip on finding chupacabra, and that it only attacks groups of goats of 3 or more

    • part 3 continued.
      the chupacabra also only attacks goats with spots. now when you want too deliver the seed to the guy with the jeeps brother. when you get there give it too him and ask him about the chupacabra he will say that it attacked his chickens and went through the fence, now go over to the broken part of the metal fence and pick up the (hint so you wont waste your time) coyote hair. now too get the camera go to ireland and help the man get his truck stuck out from underneath the bridge. to do this talk to the guy offer him help and then click on the left tire and click the valve stem on the tire and release the air in the tire. then he will give you the camera. now go out on the rowboat using the rowboat ticket you got earlier and back too the top of the cliff above the monk temple and take pictures of the so called loch ness creature and bigfoot foot print

        NOTE : This answer contains spoilers.
        Cryptids Island is the 16th island in Poptropica, with a release date of January 17, 2011. Early Access was available to paid monthly members beginning December 20, 2010. A preview of one section was available prior to release.

        * Cliff Park / Main Street / Mansion Row

        Main street consists of three buildings : Bert’s Bed and Breakfast (multiplayer room), the General Store, and Kitty’s Kites. To the left is Cliff Park and to the right is a row of mansions, including the home of billionaire recluse Harold Mews. You receive a flyer announcing the Mews million-dollar reward for proof of the existence of cryptids : legendary creatures whose existence is unconfirmed by fact.
        At the General Store, everything is too expensive (but have no prices on them). You could get a free kite at Kitty’s, but the most interesting, the KiteSurfer X-250, does not have any nylon rope to use. Continue right to the row of mansions. The Mews mansion is gated and locked, but you can find $5 in the tree just before you get there. His gardener is overworked and thirsty.
        Use the $5 to buy a sports drink at the General Store and give it to the gardener, who will loan you his shears. Take them left, past Main Street to Cliff Park.
        Help the other adventurers on their way. Give the hang glider a push and use the shears to cut loose the hot air balloon. You will get some nylon rope.
        Go back to Kitty’s Kites and get the KiteSurfer. Take it to Cliff Park and launch it into the waves. You will surf for awhile until evil Gretchen Grimlock shoots a flare into the kite, leaving you to flounder until you are rescued by a helicopter owned by Mews.

        * Mews Mansion and Museum, and the Cryptid Hunt

        You are recovering after your rescue, and Mews offers to help you in the hunt for evidence of the Cryptids. Drink the last of your medicine and follow him to his Museum and Laboratory. After you familarize yourself with the creatures, he lets you use his helicopter to travel to locations around the world. Exit the house and go to the Heliport. Your first stop should be Loch Ness, because you will need items from there at other locations.
        Loch Ness (Nessie) – The ticket counter for the Rowboat and Submarine is closed, but you can view the loch from the hill above, using the binocular telescope.
        Help the man whose truck is stuck under the bridge. Let some air out of the tires to lower it. The driver will give you his Digital Camera. Continue right to the Pub.
        In the Pub, pick up the book of matches from the bar.
        Play darts against the players there. If you win, you get a Rowboat Ticket. (to throw, aim at the center and “pull back” — lower your dart — between 1/2 and 3/4 of the way to the dartboard edge, then release) Eventually you will win and get the ticket.
        Go left to the Loch and take the Rowboat ride. While on the loch, you will get a photo of some “humps” in the water. You could return to the Mews Mansion with it. But to save travel, you can continue on to the rest of the four sites, beginning with the Himalayas.

        At the Himalayas, there is a base camp set up, and you meet another fortune hunter. But none of the guys is going to help you up the mountain in search of the Yeti. The monastery at the top of the mountain has the alleged scalp of a Yeti. Begin climbing left until you meet a helpful Sherpa guide.
        With the Sherpa, climb the mountain using the Rope Anchors. As you go up, you must tie off the rope at each of the round anchors along the way, and wait for the Sherpa to catch up. (Even if you don’t slip, the play is extremely glitchy.) Avoid slipping, and don’t move until he ties up.
        At the mountain-top monastery, go in and talk to the head monk. He will not give you the Yeti scalp, because it is a sacred artifact.
        He does give you a lantern, which you can light at any time with your matches.
        Leaving, you climb the mountain at left, and meet another monk who will challenge you to a simple game of Hunt The Yeti (fox and hounds), which you must win to go further. To win, move toward the hunters, then back and to one side, and eventually one will make a mistake and let you reach the left side. The monk lets you pass.
        Go down the path, climb the temple, and go up and left higher on the mountain. At the upper left, you will find a clearing with flowers blooming. There is a large footprint that might have been made by the Yeti. Take a photo, then go back down across the rope bridge to return to the helicopter. The next stop is Puerto Rico.

        In Puerto Rico, the farmers and goat herders are concerned about losing livestock to the Chupacabra (goat sucker). The farmers rescue another of Gretchen’s victims from a tree. He offers to let you use his jeep to drive around the countryside. As you drive, you find yourself splashing through streams, knocking down fences, and scattering herds of goats.
        In the jeep, drive up the road to the first “star” on the map (middle right). This is the herder’s brother, who shows you some fur left on his barbed wire after an attack. It is supposedly from the chupacabra. Collect it from the fence.
        The second star (top left) has a resident who says that the Chupacabra prefers spotted goats. You can see them nearby. If you climb the springy poes to the right, there is a Bolt Cutter at the top.
        The third star (center) is Snaggletooth rock, where three spotted goats are sure to attract the Chupacabra.
        At the fourth star (middle left), the resident says that the Chupacabra only attacks goats when there are three of them. This will figure in your ability to pursue the creature. But for now, you can leave and head for New Jersey.

        In New Jersey you are looking for proof of the existence of the Jersey Devil, sort of a small, demonic-looking flying dragon. You land at a gas station in a wooded area near the interstate highway.
        Enter the restroom to find claw marks and other evidence of the Jersey Devil. Writing on the wall outside and inside gives you clues.

        If you collected the bolt cutters at Puerto Rico, you can open the dumpster at the gas station. Inside is the removed toilet door. When placed next to the other door inside, it gives complete (if roundabout) directions to the house in the forest : right, left, left, right, right, right, left, left.
        As it is dark in the woods, use the Matches to light your Lantern.
        Hop on the motorcycle parked nearby and drive into the woods. Follow the directions on the list you wrote, or just alternate, right then left turns, to reach a cul-de-sac deep in the woods, where you park.
        Walk up the path to the deserted house and go inside. There are noises from above.
        Climb the stairs and push the dresser over to reach the attic, where thumping sounds are being made. You see a dark, red-eyed shape emerge from a barrel, but find that it is only a raccoon. Pick up the grappling hook next to the raccoon barrel and head downstairs.
        Just when you are leaving, the Jersey Devil appears in the window!
        Unfortunately, you can’t get a photo. Go outside, where you see the Jersey Devil again. Apparently it has a nest in a tall tree.
        Use the grapple to reach the nest and recover pieces of egg shells from the it. You now have evidence on all 4 creatures, so return to Mews.

        * Back at Mews Museum Laboratory

        You show your collected materials to Mews, and use the DNA Analyzer to test the samples.
        Unfortunately, the Nessie photo is only tires in the water, but there is a suspicious shadowy form in the background.
        The photo of the Yeti footprint turns out to be from a snowboot, so you can cross off the Himalayas as a source.
        Using the DNA analyzer shows that the “Chupacabra fur” is just a coyote’s.
        But you do confirm one of the four : the Egg Shells are definitive proof of the unknown DNA of the Jersey Devil.

        Now you have to return to Loch Ness and to Puerto Rico to see if anything new can be found. At Loch Ness, you confront the rowboat guide about the fake photo. He leaves, and you have the rowboat for your use. Return to the pub for more conversation and more darts. One of the two players claims to have seen Nessie
        Play darts against his skeptical friend to win a Submarine ticket.
        Go back to the loch and take the Submarine tour. You will descend into the loch and get a photo of a “Nessie” on the bottom. It looks suspiciously like a hoax.
        Back at the pub, the players confirm the hoax. The first dart player you beat returns for a rematch. But when you win, he refuses to give you anything.
        However, the bartender gives you a Pennywhistle that is rumored to attract Nessie.
        Return to the Rowboat and go left, then farther left into a small cove.
        Blow the pennywhistle and a huge Nessie will emerge from the water!
        Take a photo and return to the helicopter. (You can return later to show up the haughty dart player and display your astounding photo.) You now see what you can find back in Puerto Rico.

        In your absence, the goat herder has decided to catch the Chupacabra. Take his jeep to his brother’s house again, where he suggests you use the jeep to corral three spotted goats into the rocks (center star on map) as bait for the chupacabra.
        Drive over, and steer around the three spotted goats until they are all between the rocks.
        Get out and meet the goat herder, who has a plan to trap the creature in a huge wooden box with locks and chains.
        After a short wait, his “trap” succeeds, and the Chupacabra is caught!
        Unfortunately, as you push it toward the truck, the box bursts open, releasing the savage Chupacabra, who knocks you down and escapes!
        Fortunately, he has lost a tooth in the process. Pick it up and head back to the Mews mansion with proof for both Nessie and the Chupacabra.

        * Mews Museum Laboratory and the Bigfoot Hunt
        The photo confirms that Nessie exists.
        The Chupacabra tooth shows that it is a real creature
        This leaves only the Yeti / Bigfoot unproven.

        But Mews has word of a sighting in the Pacific Northwest, so you fly the helicopter there to investigate. This is a new, 5th location on the helicopter’s GPS. You sight Bigfoot travelling on the ground through the trees, and he is occasionally getting out of your sight as he roams. You can spot his footprints for a few seconds before they fade away.
        Fly above him and keep him in view for about two or three minutes until he reaches some caves.
        You report in to Mews, but Gretchen has bugged the radio, and swoops in using her own copter, and traps Bigfoot in a cage. Fly in close to her to stop her.
        Jump from your copter to hers, avoiding the rotor blades. If you fall, you can try again. To stop her, you have to open her copter’s gas tank, on the side near the door. This will spill out the fuel and force her to ditch the helicopter.
        Quickly jump down to the cage and use the shears to cut the connecting rope. Descend to the ground safely using the cage’s parachute.

        * Mews Museum (Finale)
        The existence of Bigfoot is finally confirmed, and you are the winner of the million-dollar prize! But Mews has had financial trouble, so he hasn’t any money to buy the caves as a Bigfoot preserve.
        You decide to turn down the money to keep the Bigfoot safe. :-(
        But you have confirmed all 4 of the cryptids and win the Island Medallion!

      • Ding Ding says:

        OMG u r such a lifesaver, i wouldnt have been able 2 finish the island w/out ur help thnx!!!!!

  14. It is OUT!!!! Woohoooo!! Yaaay! Here I come Nessie! Bigfoot! Jersy Devil and Chupacaba-the-vampire-sounding-cryptid! Here I come Harold Mews! :lol: <- This "LOL" smiley is a shouting-for-joy-smiley. Oops… I just realized I'm not a member… :( Rats.

    • Fearless Cheetah says:

      I know what you’re saying. The trailer got me SO jazzed up to do the island…but then I remembered that I have to wait until January.

  15. Popular Cloud says:

    I just finished! It was super easy! This is one of my favorites because it’s not hard, but it’s not easy! :D

    • Ding Ding says:

      actually i thought that herding the three spotted goats was really hard, they just kept escaping, but i think ill be able to figure it out

  16. FriendlyShark says:

    WARNING: Spoiler

    Here’s a look at some Cryptids island characters you are going to see:

    http://img232.imageshack.us/img232/2449/cryptidsislandcharacter.jpg

    See someone you know?

  17. Perfect Fox says:

    I found Nessie! I completed! Thanks Lonebones! That REALLY helped! :D

  18. Oh my goodness. I wanna play this island so bad but guess what? No membership. I hate all this membership crap. Now I must wait 9 MORE DAYS!!!! Ugh.

  19. OMG its finally here
    YOU GO POPTROPICA!!!

  20. I think i FINALLY got it YEAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! :) i am soooooooo HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  21. I am very disappointed. I got the first round of evidence and got in the helicopter… I pressed mews mansion…. and it placed me outside the mansion with the guy w/ the white beard!!!! AND the gate was closed! I cant get in nomatter what i do! Is it a glitch or what?

    Hijuyo: It’s a glitch; hopefully it’ll get fixed soon. In the meantime, you could get more evidence from the other places first and maybe the next time you try to go back to the Mews Mansion, you’ll be inside.

  22. I accidentally used my rowboat ticket before I had the camera, and now the guy on the rowboat won’t let me on because I don’t have a ticket! The guy with the darts isn’t there anymore so I can’t replay him for a ticket again. What should I do?

    Hijuyo: Sounds like a stuck situation… hopefully if you try again you can try and get on the boat or play darts again anyway.

  23. There seems to be a glitch that everyone is struggling with, characters in Puerto Rico keep saying ‘char2′ ‘char3′ and ‘chat or battle’ and this is stopping me from riding the jeep to go to other villages so i can’t complete the island. Any help??

    Hijuyo: Sorry, all these people can do is wait and hope Poptropica fixes this glitch. :(

  24. there was no glitch when i did it. I was able to complete the island.

  25. Thumbs up if the jersey devil looked out the window, gave you a fright and you ran off of your computer and you hid behind the couch, for me I ran out of my house, had a nightmare that I was being eaten by a jersey devil and I actually saw one in my backyard. I can prove it. but it didn’t look like the one in poptropica. It had a head similar to that of a human head. It had wings like a giant vampire. And it had horse legs.

    • @brendan: wow dude. that sounds really scary! :O
      But your description…..I’m not saying you didn’t see anything but I always hear that the Jersey Devil has:
      -a horse head w/ a protruding snout
      -a long, lizard tail
      -a set of large, bat-like (or vampire-like) wings
      -and hands w/ sharp claws

    • Scary Catfish says:

      :O That must have been really scary.. I heard when its eyes glow red, it can paralyze you.. One question too.. Do you live in New Jersey?

  26. Yea that does sound really scary dude! I had an encounted too: o.o
    Well I haven’t been able to sleep lately because I’ve been thinking of a special boy (<3) lol anyways so I went outside to sit on my deck and I got that weird feeling that I was being watched. So I flicked on my flashlight (cuz im not goin outside w/out one o_O) and I skimmed it over my yard (which is like half forest) All of a sudden, the light got some eyeshine and i focused it and saw….well a horse on two feet with wings. At first I thought I was crazy….but then it flew up and came closer towards me….O_O so I got freaked out and ran inside screaming. I woke up my parents saying "Oh my god there is a monster outside!" So we ran out to see if it was all there…but. It was gone :( Only leaving footprints in the snow in the yard/woods and on my roof. So I'm a believer!

    • Scary Catfish says:

      The description in my cryptids book fits what you said. I hope I never have an encounter with this beast..

  27. love johnson says:

    i need help my game was in progress and it was at the part where the game gives you the ticket to ride the boat and the game glitched then the man disappear out of no where and i can no longer get the ticket how do i reset the game??
    JSYK (just so you know) mythology is one of my favorite subjects in life so someone help me D:

  28. the yeti footprint photo in my bag isnt showing up

  29. speedy try to take the picture agian
    jonhson if you want to restart the island go to where your map is then click restart island

  30. by the way you guys should watch the movie “water horse” it is so cool!!!!!!!!!!

  31. omg! members are soooooooooo pampered. I mean what is so special about them. Jeez. They get everything!

    • Thank you! I complained to the creators of Poptropica about the fact that their FREE+ items are not fair for non-members, and the Declaration of Independence states that every man is created equally, so that means (more or less) that all Poptropicans are created equally.

      • Quiet Spinner says:

        lol seriously bought out the declaration of independence? They get pampered cuz they give them MONEY and giving people MONEY makes the person be extra nice to you

      • Yeah. Members get benefits because they paid for them, just as you’d go to a store and buy something – as opposed to taking whatever you want. All islands are still accessible to any Poptropican anyway. It’s not equal, sure, but it’s fair (yes, there is a difference).

  32. my big foot won’t move pleas help me and I already tried to restart it

  33. Creepy Wolf says:

    OMG i can not get big foot to move i have tryed every thing this is the worst

  34. When I chased Bigfoot…He ran away shouting “RAAWWWR >:3″ so I followed him.Then he ran away to a cave and Grimlock came fighting Star Wars with me (x3).

  35. The game keeps freezing every time I try go on the rowboat to take a pic of The Loch Ness Monster. I have everything, the camera, the two false pics (one of the wheels on the rowboat and one from under the water in the submarine) and i have even beaten that guy you play darts with!!
    Its so annoying! And its my last mission until I complete the island!!

  36. ATTENTION
    HAS ANYBODY NOTICED…

    That when you enter the Mews Mansion, and you go up the right (>) staircase, and go to the door with all the boxes and stuff in the way, that that gray statue is identical to one on Mythology Island?

    COmment if you have!!!

  37. eagles4ever1 says:

    hey when i get out of the kite flying area the nylon string dissapears wth is with that?

  38. Friendly Glove says:

    hey i gave the thirsty man a sports drink but he never gave me any scissors and since it saved the game im basicly pissed. but since i have so much proggress on my account i dont want to restart!!!!!!!!

    Hijuyo: If there’s a glitch in the island quest, all you need to do is restart the island by going to the Map. It won’t restart your whole account, just the island.

  39. by the mews mansion i accidentaly fell into the water and now i cant get out.SOMEONE HELP ME!!!!! is this a glitch?

  40. Help me!! Im on the loch ness one, and i talked to the guy who’s truck was stuck under the bridge, and i clicked his tire to help him, but i cant get the air out!!! I clicked the valve, dragged the valve, clicked it and dragged it in circles, but it wont work.. Help? Is it a glitch??

    Slanted Fish: Try watching a video to see how it’s done.

  41. I can¨t buy a kite from the store and I have five dollars ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Could you pleas help me ?!

    • To get a kite from the store, you will need to click “Use” on your Nylon Rope while you’re there. If you need more details, please take a look at our guide here and follow the steps. The $5 is for a sports drink.

  42. Quiet Spinner says:

    THe videos will not work they wont confirm going to try to restart island but if the videos dont work i will cry

  43. jersey devil scared me to death

  44. Never be afraid

  45. I live near the Jersey Devil woods. One night I was waiting for Mom to get her phone from the house. I heard a screech and i turned on my flashlight. ”Dad? YOU BETTER NOT BE PLAYING TRICKS ON ME!!” I said as I looked around. Then I saw… dun dun dun!!… THE JERSEY DEVIL!!!!!!!! OMG! I RAN INTO THE HOUSE SCREAMING!!! That’s why I never go anywhere or wait anywhere outside at night

  46. I’ve been playing all of the islands with sound and stuff, and now I’m going to play this island, and it’s kinda weird, not having a big screen and sound! Lol

  47. Speedy Leopard says:
