Wimpy Boardwalk Island Guide

Walkthrough written & screenshots taken by:

Once you land on the Boardwalk, talk to Greg. He’ll tell you how the game he’s playing, Himalayan Hurl, is rigged. When he takes out his money, it flies away into the hands of two teenagers who run off with it.

Follow Greg as he runs after them. Catch up with him at the Boardwalk Arcade and he says the teens disappeared somewhere. Go right to the beach and talk to the guy selling Souvenir keychain photos. Tell him you don’t have any money and he’ll let you take a photo for free. (You get a photo for your photo album once you complete this action).  He will give you Sunblock. Go right to the beach and find this guy:

Give him the sunblock for his sunburn and he will give you Oily Suntan Lotion in return. While you’re there, you’ll see a seagull carrying a keychain! Jump onto the trash can and when the seagull passes over you, jump and get the keychain picture. See a striking resemblance to the guy with the metal detector? You can give it to him either now or later (if later, you can use it on the beach to look for more tokens). Meanwhile, go back to the Boardwalk arcade and see Greg tell you that the kids are underneath the boardwalk taunting you with the money, like so:

wb1

If you try to go underneath the boardwalk, they run away with the money. So you’ll have to find a way to get the money without them running away.

Afterwards, go to the Boardwalk Rides.

wb2

The boy with the helicopter wants one of those prizes from the boardwalk. The guy at the popcorn stand says that if you get an empty bag, you can get a free refill.  Also, the lady at the parking lot is missing her keys.

Tokens can also be found at the rides. Many places in the funhouse offer tokens such as the top of the slide, the bottom of the slide, and near the door. Outside the funhouse, tokens can be found on the roofs of buildings, by the lady’s car, near the trash, and near the cotton candy stand. (Tip: If you have the metal detector, use it on the beach for more tokens.) Once you’ve collected some tokens, go right to the games and take your pick! You can play them in any order.

Fastball Fury

Instructions: Click on the glove to throw a ball. Pay attention to the speed of the first two throws and guess the speed of the last ball correctly to win!

Tip: Really pay attention to the speeds. If your first ball was, say, 77 and your next ball was 83, choose something that’s fairly close or in between those numbers. Don’t forget there’s also a speed meter to see how fast your speed is on the right side of the screen.

Circus Soaker

Instructions: Hold the mouse button to shoot water at the clown’s mouth. The first player to fill their clown’s balloon, wins!

Space Fling

Instructions: Click and hold on the ring to pick it up. Then move the mouse upward and release the button to throw. Ring a bottle by throwing the ring hard enough and at the right angle.

Tip: You don’t have to ring all three bottles to win. You only have to ring at least one.

Pirate Panic

Instructions: Click and hold on the ball to pick it up. Then move the mouse upward and release the button to throw. Knock over all the bottles to win.

Himalayan Hurl

The steps leading to playing this game are a bit lengthy, so I suggest that you play this last. Plus, you’ll need a little help! ;) Remember the guy said that if you can find a bag, you can get a free popcorn refill? Go to the Cranium Shaker and climb up the cars to pick up the trashcan lid (You’ll be holding it; it will NOT go in your inventory). Put it on the trashcan by the funhouse so the bees will be trapped inside.

Next, push it by the cotton candy stand and open it. The bees will become attracted to the cotton candy. Dig through the trash to find an empty bag of popcorn. Go to the popcorn stand and click it to fill it. There should now be a “Dump” button on the card. Go to the woman on the beach and dump the popcorn next to her. She’ll leave because of the seagulls crowding her.

If you haven’t already, get the keychain from the seagull and give it to the man with the metal detector. He will give it to you. Use it to search for the car keys under the towel. If you give the car keys to the lady in the parking lot, she will give you flip flops! That you can wear! :o Isn’t that a first.

Use the flip flops to get onto the roof of the arcade building to get the flying disc down for the crying kid. He gives you a tip: “If you jiggle the handle on the claw machine, you can get a free game!”

Click the claw machine to play it. Jiggle the handle, then clear out all the items to uncover the… EW! Fake vomit! What a horrible prize. Anyways, it IS useful. Go back to the bumper car line then drop it so that the kids will clear out in an unorderly fashion. Probably not the best way to react to vomit…

Click the guy operating the ride to start your turn! You have 1 minute and 30 seconds to bump Rowley’s red bumper car, make him drop the lucky rabbit’s foot, and get it. Once you have successfully gotten it, make your way over to Himalayan Hurl and test your luck!

Instructions: This game takes a lot of luck. Do you feel lucky? Click anywhere to throw the ping pong ball and shoot for the red hole.

Getting the Money Back

Congratulations for passing the Games segment! :D As you may have noticed, after each game you play, you got a prize to keep. But also if you win all the games, you get the jumbo prize! When you get it, go to the Rides at the boardwalk and give it to the boy with the helicopter. He’ll actually give you the helicopter which you’ll need later.

Go to the funhouse and you’ll see that Rowley is stuck in the slide. Use the suntan lotion that you may or may not have forgotten you’ve had to get him unstuck. But when he slides down, he lands into a pool of balls in which Fregley seemed to be drowned in. Fregley’s mom will thank you and reward you with Fish Sticks.

Go over to The Beach and go at the edge of the sand and use the Fish Sticks. However, you think that you could hang it from the Helicopter and use it as bait. Then the two items collide. Use the Helicopter in your backpack and hold it over the ocean, a crab will soon cling onto it. Then go back over to the Boardwalk Arcade and use the Helicopter near the dollar bill.

The crab will then cling onto the dollar bill, preventing the teenagers from below the boardwalk to snatch the bill away. While they’re distracted by the dollar bill, you and Greg then go under the boardwalk to finally get your money back. When you arrive, the teenagers run away but Greg gets his dollar bill back. And for helping him out, you receive the island medallion and credits to spend at the Poptropica Store.

Bonus quest (members only)

Before you go, there’s one more task to be done. A devious gamer has left an embarrassing message about Greg on a high-score list in the arcade. Can you master the game, save Greg’s dignity, and become the boardwalk champion?

Thunder Volt

This part is for members only. You will need to beat the current second place high score by scoring over 800,000 points on Thunder Volt, a retro-style arcade video game.

(Thunder Volt is also similar to the Virus Hunter Island promo game, Nano-Combat Training, which members can get for free in the Store. You may find the PHB’s guide for that helpful as well.)

The game comes in waves, and you need to shoot the targets by pointing your mouse in their direction and clicking. Move your cursor around the screen to move yourself, and avoid touching the targets. The more targets you shoot, the higher your score!

From time to time you may see some power-ups. Collect them for benefits. The key is:

  • Red boosts your firepower
  • Yellow scores you a bonus
  • Blue repairs your shields
  • Purple clears enemies on screen

Standard targets (the majority) only take one hit to destroy, and bigger/different colored ones (bosses) will take more. If the bosses shoot at you, avoid them. At the end of a wave, a Giant Enemy will appear. You need to keep clicking to shoot at it, but move around and avoid their shots. Its health bar is shown at the top. When it’s destroyed, the next wave will begin.

It gets harder with each wave, and there are four waves in total. By the end of it, you should have scored enough points to put Greg out of his shame. Congratulations!

    • You don’t get extra prizes for finishing the members-only bonus quest, but members do get extra items for being members.

      “Members get an additional Wimpy Boardwalk gear pack, which includes Beachgoer costume, Heat Wave power, and Beach Umbrella item. The Beachgoer is ONLY available during Early Access!”

    • Invisible Dragon says:

      I personally think it’s so stupid how I pay ten bucks for a membership card and get really boring bonus quests. I thought it would be fun, but they’re really boring. But, yes, I do still get all of the other costumes and stuff.

      HEY FISHY (as Samwow5 calls you…)- HOW DO YOU BEAT THE BONUS QUEST ON POPTROPOLIS GAMES??

      Thanks,

      Invisible Dragon

    • As long as the “Dump” button appears, you should be fine. Just click to Dump when you’re near the lady on the beach. Read the guide if you’re not up to that point yet or need more details. :P

  10. gloria19012 says:

    I can’t find the seagull with the keychain!

  11. How do I get the metal detector?

    • You have to get the keychain picture from the seagull. Give the keychain to the man who’s holding the metal detector. He should give you the metal detector once you given him the keychain.

  12. I completed the island!! Thanks to your guide!

  13. Serious Monster says:

    How do you get tokens if you run out?

  14. strange beetle says:

    • Shaky Dragon says:

      Also you can get tokens in the bumper cars by bumping the other kids cars. Or did you just say that, strange beetle?

  15. I can’t believe all this time we have been barefoot, swimming in sewer at early poptropica and walking in grass lands, we could have gotten ticks o.o

  47. Angelina Nowak says:

    This is great! I got through it in like 15 minutes! It usually takes me HOURS to complete an island without ANY help! Thanks! :)

  48. Young Crown says:

    Wow, thanks for the walkthrough! :) Tho I do feel quite stupid having to refer to a walkthrough to beat a game designed for 6-year-olds …

  49. thank you this helped alot

  50. I know a cheat for Fastball Fury- Put your shot at Too Fast for all 3 shots and then, at the last shot, choose the option 100. Easy!

  51. the seagull wont come up after I give that guy the sunblock? ive restarted the level but It wont work??

  52. magicknight677 says:

    I cant find the seagull! what did I do wrong?

  53. i cant find any tockens

  54. Shaky Dragon says:

    Also I completed this island on two different accounts.:-) I’ll prove it. My username on one of the accounts is Dragonfire2540. My username on the other account is Partygirl560.

  55. I wish i could beat greg because he is kinda a jerk so let him be calleda nd idiot and lets Gentle spider have 1st places on thundervolt forever(plus greg cheated its impossible to get that many points)

    • IcyFoxPoptropica says:

      That’s why I’m not doing the bonus quest. It’s too much work and you don’t even get a reward at the end. Bonus quests aren’t really my thing, but I might play the SVI bonus quest when I get the medallion.

  56. Orange Grape says:

    I already gave the guy the Sunblock, but the seagull with the keychain isn’t flying by! What do I do? (i already restarted the island once)

  57. How do I get the $20 from the teenagers????? I don’t understand

    • U go down by the water, then Put the fish stick in the helicopter, then hold it over the ocean, click on yourself, and Bring it over to the $20 and hit “Use” on the helicopter, Hold it over the money, the crab will grab it. The rest falls into place xD

  58. Well dat was fun xDDDD

  59. valerie says:

    thanx
    your the best

  60. IcyFoxPoptropica says:

    Every time I go back to this island I end up playing and completing a different one, because I can’t get the other mini-game prizes. I hope I’ll finally complete this one today, it’s been driving me crazy.

  61. IcyFoxPoptropica says:

    Tip for Circus Soaker: Make sure the water is inside the little hole of the mouth to fill your balloon faster.

  62. Help! For some reason, I can’t pick up the trashcan lid.

  63. IcyFoxPoptropica says:

    I can’t do Space Fling. Apparently the mouse that it shows in the instructions where you click so the ring goes upward is different from mine, so I can’t click and the rings keep falling. Can anyone help?

  64. thanks for helping

  65. hey

  66. that looksssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood.
