Monster Carnival Island Guide


In the dead of night, a caravan rumbles into town. The traveling carnival has returned! But this is no day at the park. Behind the lights and the laughter, the carnival harbors a dark secret. Buy a ticket if you dare, but beware — once you enter, you may never be able to escape the Monster Carnival!

Welcome to Monster Carnival Island! Once you arrive, go right and talk to the guy who will introduce himself as Edgar, a carnie trainee. He says he doesn’t think the carnival will be ready in time! Follow him through to the next area labeled ‘Carnival’.

Part 1: Daytime

Talk to the guy in front of the Ferris wheel, who will tell you that the lever is broken.

broken lever

When you’re done talking to him, go right to the next area, where you’ll find a big Poptropican’s head, as well as the Lever, which you should pick up.


Now go left and return to the mustached guy. Give him the brand new lever.


Also, talk to the lady by the fried dough stand, and she will hand you a Sugar Formula she needs you to help her make. Head back to Main Street and go inside the pharmacy labeled ‘Apothecary’. The apothecary up front (Dr. Dan) will give you a sheet for a Salt Formula you need to make for him (sodium chloride, also known as table salt). Here’s a chart to help you:


To make sodium chloride (table salt), mix sodium hydroxide and hydrochloric acid. The bottles are located on the left side of the machine. When you click on the bottles, your character puts them in the machine. Match the light blue to the dark blue, and light yellow to the dark yellow. Blow the yellow and blue compounds apart with the blower.


Once you finish, you’ll have the Salt. Go talk to the apothecary up front and give him the salt. He’ll say you can use the lab to get the powdered sugar. Go back up and grab the two bottles to the right on the lab (Fructose and Glucose).


Now do the same as before. You have to make sucrose, so separate it and put it together, like so:


Once you have the Sugar (sucrose), go back to the lady at the fried dough carnival booth, and give her the sugar. She’ll thank you and give you some Fried Dough.

Now it’s time to get the hose! Go back left to Honest Gabe’s Auto Repair, and tell the worker you need a Radiator Hose (not the other options!). Pick up the Hose from the top of the shelf and bring it to the guy at the duck game carnival booth. The hose water will fill up the pool. Edgar will come and say that the carnival is now ready to open!

Part 2: Dusk

It’ll be dusk/late afternoon by now. Go to the game booth where you throw darts at the balloons and pick up the Blunted Dart. Now, run to Honest Gabe’s Auto Repair, go left, and sharpen the dart on the machine to get a Sharpened Dart.


Now return to the carnival and play the Pop the Balloon game with your dart, and this time you should be successful. Not wanting to give away a teddy bear, the boothkeeper will award you a Souvenir Cup instead! (BEST. PRIZE. EVER.)


Next, hop up and let the guy with the scale guess your weight. After he guesses correctly (and gets no prize), go back to the Apothecary pharmacy. You want something heavy, but you don’t him to know you’re fooling him. Talk to the apothecary, then click on the little orange box as shown:


Click open the box, click the card inside it and take the Vial of Osmium.


Now, go back to the weight guesser and let him guess your weight again. When you outsmart him, he’ll give you a Super Bouncy Ball. (Warning: If you encounter a glitch here, log out and back in.)

After you get the bouncy ball, go right to the next area, and play the Test Your Strength game. Use the bouncy ball to win – it bounces off the ball, and you’ll win a Hammer!

Now go left and talk to the Ferris wheel guy, who will tell you that he needs oil to get the Ferris wheel moving again. Go back to the fried dough lady and use the Souvenir Cup you got earlier to get a Cup of Oil from her. Head back over to the Ferris wheel worker and use the fry oil to grease the gears.

When the kids come down from the Ferris wheel, they’ll go into the Tunnel of Love ride. Talk to the guy in front of the Tunnel of Love, and he’ll give you a Flashlight and tell you to go to the Haunted Lab (to the right) and get a mask to scare the kids out of the Tunnel of Love.

With the flashlight, you’ll be able to see through the darkness of the Haunted Lab. Walk around and go up the stairs, heading right until you find the Human Fly Mask. Take it and put it on, then head inside the Tunnel of Love and ruin the romantic moment…


The couple you scared will run away, so run two areas to the right and into the woods. Follow the debris (the directions are randomized, so they’re different every time). The same scenery is re-used so it looks like you’re in the same area. However, if you keep following the trash trail (there’ll be a random piece of rubbish either on the ground or on the highest grassy lump), you’ll eventually end up where the carnies are being hypnotized into monsters.


Eventually, you’ll arrive at this tree stump where some darkly-dressed dude is hypnotizing the carnival workers to serve him!


Part 3: Night

Once they finish transforming into his minions/monsters, night will fall. Go back to the carnival, and jump on this barrel to avoid the hunky cat monster:


Now run past the Tunnel of Love and Merry-Go-Round, jump over the monster, and run into the next area. Follow Edgar into Ringmaster Raven’s tent. He says there’s a formula to reverse the hypnotized carnival workers from monsters back to normal, and it’s in the Ferris wheel guy’s back pocket. Leave the tent and go right to the Ferris wheel.

When you get to the Ferris wheel, equip the Hammer and press the spacebar to knock the guy out. The monster will fall from the Ferris wheel to the ground. Pick up the ticket with a Secret Message, which is helpful for the duck game later on.

Now head towards the Haunted Lab, jumping onto the Test-Your-Strength game to bounce above the cat monster. Inside the Haunted Lab, a monster will chase you – no big deal, just turn on your flashlight and run away! Once you reach the top, climb up the shelf and click on the box labeled “Black Light” to obtain a Black Lightbulb.


Now exit and go left to the duck game booth. While you’re running there, you’ll see this Big Glob Monster! (Hard to tell if this is Scooby-Doo’s cousin or SpongeBob’s brother!)


At the duck game booth, open up your inventory and use the Black Lightbulb to make your flashlight emit black light. Now click on the duck game and follow the colors by where it has the name “GORY” on the ticket, and fish the ducks out. When you finish, you’ll get this formula:


After you get the Mystery Formula, go to Honest Gabe’s Auto Repair (because the pharmacy is closed), and hop onto the first pedestal, then press the red “up” button. When you reach the top, hop on to the second one and mouse over the broken vent.

get up

Inside the vent, follow the path and go left out of the vent. You’ll appear on the other side, where there are newspapers you can read to learn more about Ringmaster Raven’s tragic backstory. (Basically, he was a homeless orphan working at the carnival as “Bird Boy”, but was left behind when the carnival left town. He was blamed when Honest Gabe’s burned down and was exiled by the townspeople, left without a home… 😦 )

Anyway, click on all the newspapers to get through the vent and into the lab. Inside the lab, grab the three remaining containers – the yellow bromopentane, red sodium sulfidosodium, and blue ethylmalonic ester – and put them into the machine. Now you’ll need to create sodium thiopental (truth serum) and its byproducts:


Once you’ve got the Sodium Thiopental, leave the building and go back to the carnival, specifically where Ringmaster Raven’s tent is. Enter the tent, and Edgar will kidnap you and put you in a chair! And as revenge for being exiled by the townspeople, Ringmaster Raven (known back in the day as Bird Boy) wants to hypnotize everyone and make them his slaves!


To get out the chair, use the Fried Dough to un-hypnotize Edgar. Once he’s un-hypnotized, he’ll release you and Ringmaster Raven will escape into the Mirror Maze. Go inside and you’ll find him hiding behind one of the mirrors. Equip your Hammer and use it near his hiding spot.

bird boy

When you break the first set of mirrors, he’ll hop to the second level, where it’ll be hard to find where he’s at. He goes through six sets of mirrors, which you’ll need to smash with your hammer. After that, you’ll get to make him your slave, telling him never to hurt anyone ever again – plus he has to act like a chicken! Poor Bird Boy… Ringmaster Raven… and now the Incredible Chicken Man!

chicken man

The next day arrives, and the carnival is all packed up and ready to leave town. When you talk to Edgar, he will award you the Island Medallion! At this, the carnival will start moving out. Congratulations, you’ve saved the Monster Carnival from its monstrosities!


Bonus Quest (members only)

The town is safe, but now a prominent citizen is missing. Has the monster carnival claimed another victim, or is something else behind his disappearance?


Dr. Dan is missing! First, run to the right and enter the forest. When you get there, you’ll find Dr. Dan, cowering and telling you to stay away.

doctor dan stay back!!

He’ll run away from you. Follow him up the rollercoaster, and he’ll say he’s a monster and that he needs a cure. Run past him, jump off the roller coaster, and pick up the Wild Mushroom Extract.


Once you get the Mushrooms, hop up the roller coaster and go left a couple of areas, entering Honest Gabe’s to the left. Take the Pickle Juice on the shelf.


Now, go inside the Apothecary Pharmacy to the right. Click on the soda pop machine for the last ingredient – a Cola Soft Drink.


Then go start working on the formula. To complete it, you’ll need to get it to this:

molecular formula

Once you finish the formula, you’ll have Chemical X. Run back to Dr. Dan, who will grow horns. He says he’s forced to leave town, but the townspeople come at the last moment and tell him that they want him to stay. So he gives Chemical X back to you. When you use it, you’ll transform and look like one of the mean goblins from earlier!


(Note: You can’t keep this costume, even if you try to save it to your costume closet.) You can use Chemical X any time to transform into a monster – however, the effect will wear off when you leave the room. Anyway, that’s the end of the bonus quest! Hope this walkthrough was helpful!

Album Photos

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


  • Monster Carnival Island is Poptropica’s 37th island. It was released for members on February 21, 2014 with a demo for non-members. The login screen featured the usual running Poptropicans, followed by a cart for Ringmaster Raven’s Circus of the Bizarre trailing slowly behind. MC Island was released to all on March 20, 2014.
  • Up until 2014, Monster Carnival was considered the island that never was. It appeared as “coming soon” on the Map back in early 2008, but mysteriously disappeared one day to be replaced by 24 Carrot Island. (Otherwise, MC could have technically been the 4th island!) You can read all about it in the PHB article titled Mystery of Monster Carnival Island.
  • Common room: Lazy Sundae Ice Cream (a play on the phrase “lazy Sunday” and sundae ice cream) – the phrase “I scream (you scream)” on the wall is a pun on “ice cream”
  • According to the first copy of the newspaper you can read by talking to someone on Main Street (The Standard), the current year is 1956. Older issues of The Standard can be read later on in the quest.
  • Honest Gabe’s Auto Repair has a sign that says “PPTRPC HQ” – “Poptropica HQ” with the vowels taken out. Poptropica HQ plays a major part on Mocktropica Island. There is also a sign that says “the best Krpata motor oil” – a reference to Poptropica Creator Mitch Krpata.
  • “Honest Gabe” is a play on “Honest Abe”, the nickname of the 16th US President, Abraham Lincoln. However, the auto shop worker tells us that Honest Gabe (the store’s founder) was hardly honest and is in fact serving a prison sentence for defrauding customers.
  • If you talk to the woman on Main Street when you start the island, she will show you a newspaper with the news of the carnival on it. To the side of the paper, it says “Butter Contest, only 25 cents”. Later in the quest, when you discover the old newspapers telling the backstory of Bird Boy, the side banners says things like, “Apple Pie Eating Contest, only 15 cents”, or “Two Headed Pig, only 15 cents”. Obviously, the price went up between 1936 to 1956, referencing inflation.
  • Betty Brownie from Reality TV Island can be seen in one of the Bird Boy newspapers (The Standard).
  • The old newspapers also make brief references to The Hunchback of Notre Dame – one article’s author is Esmeralda Modo, after the story’s gypsy, Esmeralda, and the titular hunchback, Quasimodo. Another article mentions Bird Boy hiding away in a bell-tower, much like Quasimodo in the story.
  • The carnie trainee, Edgar, may be named after the poet Edgar Allan Poe, famously known for his poem, The Raven – and as we know, there’s the infamous Ringmaster Raven…
  • Dr. Price, the mad scientist behind the Haunted Lab, is a reference to the famous horror film actor Vincent Price, but not a real character on Poptropica (confirmed in this tweet).
  • The young girl calls her brother “Bubby”, sort of like how Manny from the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books calls his brother Greg “Bubby”. (Diary of a Wimpy Kid is by Jeff Kinney, Poptropica’s founder.)
  • In the ending, you cannot see the Ferris wheel packed up with all the other trucks of carnival gear.
  • The calendar in the Apothecary building displays the year as 1956, but the car outside of Honest Gabe’s is a 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air – a car manufactured a whole year later than the island is supposed to have taken place.
  • The kid with the blue striped shirt looks like Jughead from the Archie comics.
  • Bonus quest (members only): The town is safe, but now a prominent citizen is missing. Has the monster carnival claimed another victim, or is something else behind his disappearance?
  • Members get an additional Monster Carnival gear pack, which includes Ringmaster costume, Hypno-Powder item, and Raven Swarm power. The Ringmaster costume is ONLY available until the end of Early Access!

step right up!



  1. Thanks for the guide! ~Pixel

  2. wow thx sam ur really good at poptropica I must say

  3. i HATE this island.

  4. It was kinda weird since the island seemed to take place in the 80s, but I liked the island.

  5. hey so um where is the guy with the scale? I cant find him

  6. it is the future where you are its still 2/21 here

  7. Like it, but I think it could have been better. Like I thought it would be this really awesome island that was so big, it took five years to make. And what about Ringmaster Raven? Does he even show up once? I don’t know. Maybe I’m wrong. Just,it doesn’t seem like the island you thought it would be in the promos and the video.Or the daily pops and posters. But my point is, it isn’t the best island. It’s more of the normal ones like Shrink Ray or Black Lot. Not one of the game changers like Super Villain or Mythology, though.

  8. Though this island had a lot of potential and was very intriguing, it was a great disappointment. This island was too easy and not in depth enough for my liking. Why couldn’t the player have actually fought the monsters instead of merely jumping over them? Very engaging… Ringmaster Raven’s past is revealed and then he’s defeated by smashing mirrors. It took them six years to fully create this island and that’s the boss battle they thought of? This island will not be joining the ranks of my absolute favorites. (Cryptids, Ghost Story, and Mystery Train) I am the eighty-sixth finisher of this island.

    • I absolutely LOVE it! I completed it four times already! 😄

    • You see,that’s why you’re so disappointed. Because you’re assuming that it actually took six years to make. In reality,not really. They had tried making it before,but it didn’t happen. They only really started working on THIS version in about mid 2013, I estimate. So yeah,this was just an ordinary island. We were just disappointed due to the insanely high expectations we had.

  9. I can’t get the cupof oil.When i use it by the barrel of oil,my character says “i’m not thirsty right now.” Same when i click on the person. Can someone help?

  10. ★Brave Tomato ★ says:

    Yay, a new villain at last!

    *ahem* Now that that’s out of my system, now I can actually review this island.

    The music here is the best I’ve heard- maybe it’s a personal bias since I just like creepy dark music, but oh well… I like it a lot.

    The visuals were amazing as per usual.

    The story… Needs a few tweaks. First of all, I wish that the other monsters had a bigger role in this island (and I think the actual monster carnival only took up like the last half of the island). Secondly, the boss fight against Raven Ringmaster was kinda anticlimactic. You break mirrors. Hooray. This boss fight saddens me, because Raven had the potential to be among some of Poptropica’s greatest villainy (I think he was more successful than Dr. Hare at hypnotizing citizens!). He had a backstory that explains his start of darkness well.

    However, I’ll have to note something about the difficulty. People say that this island is too easy… Which I find odd since I had seen past complaints about some islands being too hard. The Creators can’t make all of their islands Steamworks-difficult, otherwise it’d be too frustrating. I don’t really pay attention to the difficulty level, I’m more focused on the story. (And again about the easiness against Raven Ringmaster, not all of the boss fights should be Mythology Zeus-hard, but I’m still uneasy about the style of the boss “fight”.)

    All in all, Monster Carnival Island was a decent island, Not as good as the classics, but not as bad as some other islands. Maybe it’s because I have a thing for the dark, but I’ll play this island again.

    Favoritism Rating: A-

    Quality Rating: B

  11. Great guide Samwow and HPuterpop :p

  12. I sure wish I had the membership. I read this guide over, it is great. I was just wondering if the author of this guide had any ideas on when the island comes out for non-members?

  13. I found a glitch!
    After you give the lever, hop on to the seat above you, and you disappear! :-O

  14. Smart Leopard says:

    I agree, it was easier than I thought it would be. But it was really fun chatting while I played, and thanks to all the people who helped me out! 😀 I’m still, like, totally stoked that I finished eleventh. 0.o (fabgirl160)

    • Nameless UnDEFiNed says:

      Congratz, that’s AWESOME! I haven’t finished yet since my stupid game won’t unfreeze un the lab d:

  15. The game glitched after I hit the ground to make the monster fall. It wouldn’t stop loading so I had to log out and log back in. When i did, I couldn’t get the black light! Help!

  16. Finished ;3

  17. AHHHH!! THE FREAKING DEMO IS TOO SHORT FOR ME!!! (ahhhh!! the freaking demo is too short for me!!!)

  18. Calm Sinker says:

    Its weird anyone have a solution for it? Mine keeps gliching… so on the last mirror that guy.. evil rings master is glitching on the last mirror I already tried logging out…


  19. can someone tell me y I cant do the complete island its 2/23

  20. Calm Sinker says:

    I restarted the island- ugghhh! Now its gliching where the weight guesser guesses my weight…. SO anoyiiinnngg! ! ! Help!!! P.S. I really hope another glitch doesn’t come…

  21. Calm Sinker says:

    and I finished it… and the end- the mirror STILL GLITCHED UUGGGH!

  22. ★Brave Tomato ★ says:
  23. Sleepy Feather says:

    It sounds epic! Going to Poptropica right now to play!

  24. Magic Onion says:

    Pretty sure the island was built to 2008 standards, not 2014… Sorry, guys.

  25. tanks i completed the island.

  26. Calm Sinker says:

    PLEASE HELP!!!!!! I logged in to poptropica, [I left off on monster carnival- very end- finished] And SCREEN WAS BLACK!!! [Poptropica screen] PLEASE ANYONE HELP! and no I can’t create a new account … well I can but it will be just to HARD! I’m a member, have lots of photos, islands done, outfits, and questions answered-[by the way can you add some new ones- questions?] Please can creators fix this? Poptropicans answer? It happed to my cousin too- but on 24 carrot island… PLEASE SOMEONE- ANYONE …. HELP! [my username is bella3010145- other like name is calm sinker..] HELLLPPP!!!!!!! If no one answers It will be the end of poptropica for me…. AND I looooovveeee poptropica… I play it every day… Please…. Anyone? *Sniffles, in hope of answers, and because of .. allergies and is sick* D”=

    Slanted Fish: Try contacting Poptropica about the glitch! They may be able to help.

  27. The newspaper says that it is August 6, 1936…

  28. Calm Star says:

    yay gonna have lots of fun trolling common rooms

  29. Shiny Flame says:

    When I get to the woods, instead of going in a new area, I just end up going in a circle and coming back where I started from. Is this some sort of glitch or am I doing something wrong?

    • In the woods at nighttime, they re-use the same scenery so it looks like you’re in the same area. However, if you keep following the trash trail (there’ll be a random piece of rubbish either on the ground or on the highest grassy lump), you’ll eventually end up where the carnies are being hypnotized into monsters. 😛

      • cool grape says:

        oh my gosh thank you so much! this wasnt stated in the guide and i could never get to the place! again, thanks! 🙂

      • I'm so awesome says:

        Why do they use the same scenery? Its really frustrating when I follow the trail and I have no idea if I’m getting closer or not.

  30. OMG, the island is totally glitched, i cant pick the black lights, i tried a different browser and nope… no result. i think it’s glitched because they made it from 2008 and released it in 2014 (how’s stupid is that!) i cant complete the island and here died all my hopes to finish 37 islands

    • To get the Black Lightbulb, you need to click on the box labeled “black lights” at the top of the shelf. If for some reason that’s not working, try contacting Poptropica.

      Also, while the idea of Monster Carnival was being formed around 2008, it was ultimately called off because the Creators felt it wasn’t good enough. We don’t know how close the original Monster Carnival idea is to the current version, but it’s probably quite different to the new version we have today (which has even been programmed for the new SUI format) – meaning it wasn’t really worked on for six years; it was just a longtime mystery that was recently picked up again and re-worked so it could be released in 2014. 😛

    • Thank You I Cant Get The BlakLights Either Its Very Annoying

  31. Calm Fire says:

    It dosen’t work,I can’t get the oil!

  32. I was alone when I played the monster part. I’m only 10 so I was pretty freaked out. xD

  33. Hey I cant find the diner!

    • There’s a diner in the background of Main Street, but since it’s part of the background, you can’t enter it. If you’re trying to get the Cup of Oil, you’ll need to talk to the Ferris wheel guy first, then ask the fried dough lady to fill your Souvenir Cup with fry oil. 🙂

      • you seem to know lots about the game can you help me? i need to pick up the black light bulbs but it wont let me. plz help.!

  34. joshescue18 says:

    I encountered a glitch.
    I used the cup of oil on the Ferris Wheel, then the Ferris Wheel rotates until the couple gets to the bottom. When it does, the couple disappears. Because the couple disappears, it took forever so I won’t continue to complete the quest. 😦
    Will you help me?

    • When the couple gets off the Ferris wheel, they’ll head to the Tunnel of Love. Talk to the guy working at the Tunnel of Love and he’ll explain his hands-off policy and ask you to scare the kids with a fly mask from the Haunted Lab. More info in the guide. 🙂

    • slanted i know what josh is trying to say because i have the same glitch she/he means is that when the couple got down they disapeared you do not see them walking and it keeps loading i do not know how to get rid of that i already contacted poptropica about it.

  35. I wouldn’t be able to complete 90% of the islands with out your help! Thanks for making this blog!!! 😀

  36. Thx helped a lot

  37. UH I’m so tired of these stupid new islands with sound and all that. It’s just so glitchy and annoying I hate it… classic islands were the best

    • YEA!! Wish the creators would make a button where you could play classic or SUI

      • krazyaussie says:

        Yeah I agree. It is SO annoying. :/

      • I remember playing Beta Carottine when it first came out and I think my game crashed several times due to the new sound, etc. Also, they took away all TWENTY+ pages of my store items leaving me with Poptropolis Game stuff I don’t even want! :O

    • TimmyToothache says:

      I know right! Thease new islands are broken, Atleast beta test an island before you realease it.

  38. i am having a glich-i cant click the light bulbs box

  39. cheerful noodle says:

    i dont know if it’s just me or i cant find the hipno dude

    Slanted Fish: Keep following the trash trail in the woods and you’ll eventually find him hypnotizing the carnies.

  40. @slanted fish I had a glitch were you have to go to the dark woods so I cant complete the island cause of that glitch

    Slanted Fish: I’m not sure what you mean, but you can try contacting Poptropica or restarting the island.

  41. Thanks so much for the guide helped me a lot! Your guys rock! 🙂

  42. The demo was way too short….Can’t wait to play the whole thing 😉 .

  43. Guys I have a glitch when your in the chair equip the hammer and press space bar you won’t be in the chair any more!

  46. thanks for the help i wish i could help you

  47. emogirl191933 says:

    Slanted Fish: When you try the balloon game, you’ll realize the darts are all blunt.

  48. emogirl191933 says:

  49. Omg i cant get out of these woods

  50. swaggydon says:

    how do you get the black light as i keep touching the box however it unable to give me the black light. HELP !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Slanted Fish: Clicking the box should give you the black lightbulb. If not, contact Poptropica about the glitch.

  51. can i just say the music at the end when the carnival leaves town i just started to tear up. its a pretty happy ending.

  52. this~is~me says:

    Hey guys! I followed the directions bet when I at the Honest Gabe’s Auto Repair, the woman didn’t give me a hose! Please tell me what to do! Thanks!

  53. I must be super weird!
    When ever I saw the test your strength girl I screamed “Brave Tomato!” I know,I’m strange!

  54. Giant Leopard, King of Strawberry Lemonade says:

    Hey PHB,

    I am trying to complete this island, but it appears I have run Into a glitch that is REALLY annoying me!

    I am currently at the part of the island where you must use the fry oil to fix the gears. However, upon fixing the gears, the couple vanishes from Ferris wheel. They don’t run of to the tunnel of love or anything, they just vanish in thin air. What’s worse is that I am now in a infinite loading screen. I cant move, the couple is gone, and the only thing to do is to refresh the page and login back in. However, the same thing keeps happening! So I cant finish the island 😦

    I’m playing on a laptop so that may be causing it (the game glitches out sometimes) Is there anyway to prevent the glitch? Do I have to restart? I’m hoping not because I don’t want to start all over. If this keeps happening I will contact Poptropica and start over

    Giant Leopard

  55. most.awesome. island. ever.

  56. my best ride is the ferris wheel.

  57. funnyowl79 says:

    Um, to get the vial of osmium, don’t you need to talk to the pharmacist guy first? It didn’t work the first few times I tried, until I talked to him.

    Slanted Fish: Thanks, that’s been added into the guide now. 🙂

  58. I’ve been trying to get to the hypnotist guy for literally 20 minutes! Take anyone else this long?

    Slanted Fish: It shouldn’t take that long – just follow the path indicated by where the trash is and you should get there after a few turns.

  59. WERTYUIOOOE says:

    oh my goodness he actually guessed my actual weight!

  60. JLBblue2003 says:

      After the guy guesses and gets no prize, I went back to main street and iI couldn’t go to the pharmacy! Why? Because the loading takes forever! Is this a glitch or something?

  62. It’s not fair what they did to bird boy. All he wanted was a home and they said they hated him and threw him out of town because they thought he was they one who caused the fire but he didn’t. They threw him out because they thought he was a freak and yet they let dr. Dan stay because they knew him. If they had gotten to know the bird boy maybe things would have been different. I don’t blame him for what he did. They ALMOST got what they deserved. He just wanted a family and to be accepted. And I don’t think it was fair how he was hypnotized into being a chicken and yet Dr. Dan was accepted for who he was.

      I am having the same exact problem.

    • VictoriaE says:

      I just opened poptropica and did that part in internet explorer as opposed to my regular google chrome and it worked just fine. Hope it does for you as well.

    • krazyaussie says:

      Yeah that happened to me too. I just did the next bit where you get the hose and when I came back to it, it was there.

    • ashlataa says:

      I figured it out if the reactor doesn’t work the first time, restart the island and immediately go to the shop. That is if you are doing the salt part.

  78. Shiemi Moriama says:

  91. Tried to do this island. Got up to where you sharpen the dart. Then when I returned to the carnival again, it was day time? This has happened twice now. Any ideas why?

    Slanted Fish: It’s a glitch; try contacting Poptropica so they can help you, or restart the island. 😛

  92. cool grape says:

  94. Catherine says:

    I don’t know if anyone else had this problem, but when I have to run into the woods to find the hypnotizer person, i can’t get to that area. I’ll run and pass the same places like 30 times and I log in and out and nothing seems to help. how do I get it to work???

  95. I am right at the end where the bird boy is at the mirrors I have done the mirror smashing for the 6 times but, the bird boy is just running into a box and I can’t click on him. Please help. Thanks

  96. Hello Slanted Fish! For the Dumbledore costume on the costumes page, you could get halfmoon glasses from Dr. Dan. I think you should add that.

    Slanted Fish: Good point, I’ll add that in – thanks! 😀

  97. bonesifter says:

  99. Thanks PHB for the guide really enjoyed it 😄

  100. Cuddly Claw says:

    It won’t let me pick up the backlights! This is my second time doing this island and I’ve never had this problem before. I’ve surprisingly had a lot of glitches tho. 😦

  101. I am getting seriously impatient… I am trying to get to the ‘dark dude’ but the scenery has repeated at least 15 times! How long does it take??? Should I go back to town???

  102. Red Dolphin says:

    Dang it.. I am in the part where the player leaves the woods after the carnies turn into monsters. I leave the woods and go to the giant poptropican head. I head left and after the adds the scene isn’t loading! It has been like an hour and it is still loading.. Help me PHB!!

  103. Wow turns out this island is pretty easy love it! ^.^

  104. hey! so, im at the part where you have been kidnapped by edgar, raven dude gave me his talk about that hes gonna hypnotize me with the ray, he leaves, and i exclaim “what can i do to make him remember?!” and the guide says to use the fried dough-which is in my items- bu there isnt the backpack button at the top, there arnt any buttons in fact?

  105. ko_hankinator says:

    When I put the oil on the ride, it freezes and I’ve tried logging in and out a few times and it still freezes every single time. Is it a glitch?

  106. No matter how many times i run through the woods i never find them getting hypnotized

  107. I can not no matter how many times i try get through the woods to the monster.

  108. theres a glich that the lever is not there 😦

  109. i have been going through the forest for about an hour and i still cant find the carnies

  110. thanks the walkthrough was very helpful I was stuck but then I saw this though it was a little creepy

  111. Madison says:

    When I hit the carnival ride yes,the monster did come down but then the ticket showed and then I had to wait for 5mins and it still was loading. I had to restart poptropica and then signed in and went to the haunted lab and it still won’t let me get a light bulb grrrrrrrrr.
    Please help me !!!!!

  112. Popular Heart says:

    does anyone else not have the fried thing at the end? I am stuck and do not know what to do! someone please help!!

  113. Popular Heart says:

    Now I don’t have AYTHING!!!!! PLEASE HELP! All I did was go to the home page to see if it would reset itself but instead it just took away my whole inventory except ad things. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!

    • Still Just-Me says:

      That’s impossible, it must be a glitch. The game can’t continue unless you have the fried dough.

  114. Popular Heart says:

    and now I am stuck in the chair

  115. I can’t find the blunted dart anywhere I tried going to a new scene and back, I tried exiting and coming back into the island but still can’t find it please help

  116. Those monsters scare the crap out of me so much I went “yep never doing that island again

  117. BobBlubBubba says:

    Love your walkthroughs, as always…
    If you still read these comments, I was doing this island and was under the ferris wheel trying to knock out the monster when my Internet stopped. When I logged in again, the monster was gone and there was no secret message and I can’t even get a black light. Any way to reverse this??

  118. I can’t get to the guy transforming the carnies into animals halp!

  119. Omg…. I’m so frustrated because I have been trying to get to the cult place for at least 20 minutes and I swear I clicked to go to the next page at least 100 times….. 😦
    Help anyone?

    • There are two spots in the scene where you go to the next page, but you have to choose the one with the trash bit laying around. It’ll vary between the two spots.

  120. Still Just-Me says:

    I followed the rubbish, it eventually led me back to the starting space.

  121. pickel12138 says:

    i finished it 🙂

  122. tannadodson says:

    I can’t pick up a black light… why is that?

  123. When I come to the part where we have to go to into the woods to the weird circus master my scenes just go on and on but I never reach their. I tried about a hundred times. What should I do? 😦

    • You have to follow where they leave the rubbish eg. If the rubbish is on the top right then you go there, or if it’s on the top left you go there. You cannot just go to one. HIP!

  124. How do i break the mirror with my hammer?

  125. wheres the guy with scales

  126. It took me forever to pass the forest scene to get to the hipnoytizyed carnies.

  127. When I got to the part where you go to the forest thing, I didn’t have a trash trail and I got nowhere. It took me to the exact same spot over and over again. The trail was the same, with the Town Sign. I’m stuck at this part and I do not understand where I went wrong.

  128. i cant grab the orange box

  129. (EDIT) Help i cant grab the orange box

  130. anyone know whats wrong with this?

  131. got it

  132. it is taking me a really long time to get to the hypnotized carnies, someone please help!!

  133. I’m so angry. I’m stuck in the weight guessing part again. After I talked to the weight guessing guy and there was a problem with the weight guessing game, I went to the pharmacy and Dr. Dan keeps asking “Would you be needing anything else today?” and I keep saying “Not now, thank you.” Is this a glitch or WHAT?

  134. juicy juicy says:

    no matter how many times i go over i still cant find the darkly dressed guy

  135. Super Biker says:

    I can’t get the orange box from the apothecary. Help!

  136. excuse me I’m having trouble scaring the couple out of the tunnel of love they just stand there staring at me while I’m wearing a mask feeling embarrassed.

    • omg me too!! It must be some kind of bug. I restarted it twice to see if it would go away, but it won’t. :(((

      • Something is definitely wrong! I went into the mirror maze and Ringmaster Raven was in there without his mask! All the mirrors were broken and the curtains were pulling back in a loop! This has never happened before when I played it! 😦

      • You may want to contact Poptropica support to let them know of the bug so they can fix it. Maybe also try playing on a different web browser; sometimes that helps. Hope the issue is resolved soon! 🙂

  137. I can’t scare the teenagers.I can’t run up please help me.

  138. Slippery Drummer says:

    Actually, the boothkeeper said that the Teddy Bears were only for display, not that they were sold out.

    slantedfish: Thanks, I’ve amended the text. 😛

  139. The confirmed year is 1956 it’s on a calendar at the pharmacy.

  140. SpoopyMeme says:

    Okay, so whenever i use the cup of oil, the kids come down and get off, the game still continues to load and wont let me move on. Help?

  141. Slippery Drummer says:

    If there’s a glitch in the game, use Internet Explorer. That’s its one use.

  142. Slippery Drummer says:

    You also may want to include the fact that the brain monster can actually help you.

  143. Is it just my acc or does your mouth get stuck as a frown???

    • Slippery Drummer says:

      That happens. To revert it to normal, go to home, find a picture from a previous island, and customize your mouth from there.

  144. The balloon part is not working

  145. cool, but it wasn’t working on my computer. the monsters were cool though

  146. I have a very rare and weird problem, I just started the island but I accidentally clicked the ‘back’ button and when i re-logged in, I have already completed the island and gotten the medal. Is it a good thing????

  147. after the guy guessed my weight, i went to the pharmacy guy and i said nothing

  148. I got to the part in the island were you have to hit the monster down and he is not there and the edger guy says that i need to go get the black light or whatever and i go there and the box is floating in the air i can’t get the black light and the ring master is gone I also don’t have the secret message ticket when it says i do I need help please

  149. Im stuck at the part where you have to knock the guy out of the ferris wheel. I did that and when he falls the game just shows that circle loading symbol and is just stuck. I tried logging out but that just put me ahead without the ticket. What do I do??

  150. leahpeahweah says:

    i spent 30 minutes on the part where you are going right into the forest and nothing is happening, i’m still going so i can say if this is a joke its not funny and i may never play poptopica again.

  151. PLEASE HELP!!! im stuck in the chair where im supposed to give him bread. i already gave it to him a couple days ago, then i closed the game now when i log back in there is no bread and i literally cant do anything!!

  152. Incredible Kid says:

    can someone help? I’m at the part where you’re supposed to get the osmium from the yellow box in the pharmacy and it won’t let me click on the box??

  153. Gentle Owl says:

    what happened to my eyes?! they’re all buggy and not the bored eyes i used to have!!! Waaaaaaaaah!!!!

  154. How many times do you have to go right bofe you actually get to the tree stump with the carnies?

  155. that guy didn’t even guess my weight right.:S i weigh like 60 pounds and i’m 11 years old. i’m way to skinny!

  156. There is a super bad glitch,where when you try to run after ringmaster raven,so get glitched while you are jumping up to the mirror maze!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  157. I can’t break the second set of mirrors!

  158. teentitans12 says:

    to get the dart you have to talk to edger and then when he is done you will automatically be given the dart.


  160. i cannot get the oil and i talked to the ferris wheel person! WHAT DO I DO??

  161. poptropicamaster says:

    theres a glich on this island when you go to see what happend to the carnies the woods never end no matter how many times you restart the island

  162. Where is the blunted dart?

  163. I’m having issues with a glitch in the apothecary. After failing the weight guessing game, I went back to the apothecary, tried to talk to the man and collect the orange box, but it would not work. The man just says “Would you be needing anything else today?” And I reply “Not now, thank you” and cannot click on the box.

    I’ve contacted Poptropica but they just said to restart the island, which I did and the glitch just happened again. I was wondering if anyone has an idea of how to move past it?

    slantedfish: Sorry to hear about the glitch! Try playing on a different web browser and/or a different computer.

    • Never mind, all fixed. If you’re having the same problem just send in a Bug Report and they’ll help you!

  164. Please help me!When I talk to the guy in the pharmacy,he does not let me pick the box!

  165. I am trying to make Sodium Thiopental (after crawling through the vent) but it is taking forever! The last parts are taking forever. Is this just me?

  166. Young Singer says:

    Help Me, Yall! I am talking to Dr. Doofensmirtz, and-
    Wait, that’s not him? oh. The Pharmacist guy what can fool the weight guesser, and he just says, ” Would you like anything else today?” and I say, ” Not right now.” not right now? NOT RIGHT NOW?! I need it now! I can’t complete this darn island! Hailp meh D:
    I need to get the orange box 😦

  167. LilyVanilly says:

    Am I the only one who is only scared of the dummy Guy?

  168. greedyshadow says:

    Man I just completed the bonus quest a few weeks ago, and I find it so lame and unfair that you can’t keep the costume even with membership. 😦

  169. DancingBeaver101 says:

    Help! After the guy guesses my weight and I go to get the stuff to make you heavier, the store guy just says “Will you be needing anything else today?” and I say “no” and it won’t let me click on the box! 😦
