- Red Dragon Island is Poptropica’s 19th island. It was released on May 5, 2011 for members and June 2, 2011 for non-members.
- This island is based on Magic Tree House book #37, Dragon of the Red Dawn.
- The preview for this island is a Sumo game, released in April 2011, and which you can still play by getting the “Prepare for Impact!” gold card from the Poptropica Store. (The PHB also has a walkthrough for this game.) As you win sumo matches, you’ll gain ranks, each with its own costume. The ranks are: Juryo (starter), Maegashira (highest for non-members), Sanyaku, Ozeki, Yokozuna (highest for members).
- Common room: Frog Creek Library
- It’s possible to have the Poptropica name “Red Dragon”.
- The members-only Midnight Red Ninja costume from the Poptropica Store is inspired by Red Dragon Island.
- The treehouse takes you to Edo (there’s “East Edo” and “West Edo” on your Map, among other area names), which was the old name for Tokyo, Japan.
- Basho, the old man in the hut who trains you, is also the name of a famous poet from Japan’s Edo period. He is recognized as the greatest master of haiku.
- There’s a woodblock print artist in West Edo. You can click on the hanging prints to take a closer look at the art.
