These pictures are collected in your Poptropica photo album in the profile section. Click to enlarge.


  • Lunar Colony Island is Poptropica’s 29th island. The countdown began on August 10, 2012, and was released on August 16 for members with a demo for non-members. It opened to all on September 6, 2012.
  • PASE, which stands for the Poptropica Academy for Space Exploration, is a parody of NASA.
  • The Photo Album in the open storage space next to bed 8 in the Crew Barracks is optional, but you can flip through Salerno’s scrapbook of memories just for fun.
  • Common room: Final Frontier Gift Shop
  • GatOS from the Operator’s Manual found in the Vehicle Bay is a reference to GLaDOS from the Portal games.
  • Alan Turing, who appears in the bonus quest, is an actual British cryptanalyst.
  • Bonus quest for members only: You’ve returned to earth just in time to receive a new transmission. Can you crack the code and translate the alien message?
  • Members get an additional Lunar Colony gear pack, which includes Zaggy Moondust costume, Alien Archaeology power, and Moon Rock item. The Zaggy Moondust costume is ONLY available during Early Access! (Zaggy Moondust is a parody of Ziggy Stardust, which was English rock star David Bowie’s alter ego.)
  • Hanging down sideways from near the top of the Mission Control building is the Poptropica flag.
  • On the lunar surface, you can see a view of planet Poptropica, which is based on a real photograph called “Earthrise,” taken by the crew of the Apollo 8 mission.

    • Incredible Bubbles says:

  14. Muddy Axe says:

    What do you think Salerno found in the alien world? There should be Lunar Colony 2: Alien Contact

  15. I looked at the site and it says that lunar colony comes out september 6th TODAY!!!! but when i tried to play it it only let me play the demo.

  16. this is great help

  17. at the rock laboratory in lunar colony island, the game glitched and i got stuck and can’t get out. i tried saving and exiting then re-opening poptropica but it didn’t work

  18. I want to be the hero about lunar colony.

  19. fearlessnoodle says:

    This island was SO cool!!! It kinda left you hanging, though…

  20. hatersloveme4897 says:

    hey im a member long after this island came out and i really want that linited time item from the store because it looks super awesome 😦

  21. Shifty Walker says:

    omg! the “beleive it or not im walkin on air” photo is such a throwback to the greatest american hero theme song!!

  22. Could the monoliths be a reference to 2001: A Space Odyssey? And the alien portal…there’s something like a figure next to it. It looks like a Xenomorph or a Predator or a combination of those two.

  23. What color eyes do you need to get into the Rock Lab?

  24. I’m pretty positive I was the first poptropican EVER (other than the creators :P) on this island. I was clicking really fast when the countdown got to 10 seconds, and I didn’t even see it open because I was getting onto the island!

  25. there is is glitch and when it asks you to clear earths atmosphere and set it to 112 degrees it only has 114 and 110, it goes by 4rs. can i fix this glitch??
