Walkthrough written by Super Thunder & Brave Tomato
Special thanks to: Slanted Fish, Rainbow Dash, & Poptropica Buddies

Go to Mystery Train if you’re not already there. Then, walk over to the guy pushing hard on something. Can you believe it? It’s Thomas Edison! Talk to him. He wants you to help him with his ramp. So… do it! This is the order to make the ramp work (smallest to tallest, left to right):


And… Yay! For being so nice and helping him, you get a Train Ticket! All aboard!


So, get on the train, and you’ll get to talk to and meet lots of people, many of which are famous! However, be sure to speak to this guy. It’s George Ferris, inventor of the Ferris wheel.


Oh no! The wheel isn’t working! He’ll give you a Telegram message.

Now go left to meet more people. Be sure to talk to everyone! Enter Susan B. Anthony’s cabin, and she will give you a Women’s Suffrage Pamphlet.


Keep going left, and pick up the Pencil on the table in VIP Car 2.


Also, enter Mademoiselle Moreau’s cabin and she will give you a Le Monde newspaper.


Finally, go meet Mr. Edison. He got his machine ready, and wants to test it out! And then… It’s working! But disaster strikes. Because just as he leaves to get the reporter… The train curves, and goes into a tunnel. And momentarily, the light is gone! And when th light is back, the machine is stolen. Then Mr. Edison comes back…


And so… you’re on the case. Talk to the New York Times reporter. Apparently Twain has a secret compartment. Go over to Twain’s cabin, and when you talk to Mark Twain, he gets… quite suspicious when you mention the secret compartment.


So tap around the walls, to find the different sounding wall. It’s the one that’s third from the left on the second row, and when you click it, it’ll go “THUMP!”


It turns out it was just a manuscript of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn that Twain was working on. Oops. But then, suddenly, the train stops.

Once you get out, talk to the reporter. He says that he heard someone running outside of Edison’s door! He might have left a clue…

Go ask more people around. Again, talk to everyone – you can start from the right, all the way, and work your way to the back of the train. Susan B. Anthony says that Tesla has been locked in his cabin the whole time.


Gustave Eiffel said that he heard a cabin door open and close when the train went into the tunnel that could’ve been Tesla’s, and Erik Weisz doesn’t think disappearing is too difficult.

Well, remember what the NY Times reporter said about hearing someone outside Edison’s door? Sure enough, when you go check, you’ll have a new clue: the floor is covered with prune juice!


After discovering the prune juice, you can start the questioning all over again. Not much information is revealed, except Edison says the prune trail seemed to lead to the coal car. Le Monde Reporter (whom I call Frenchy) says a similar thing. Now go to the dining car further left.

When you talk to the Porter, he/she (the porter is supposed to look just like you) throws the order sheet away, saying that orders are confidential, and then he/she will walk away. So open up the Porter’s Notepad that gets left behind, and using the Pencil, check for an imprint.


Apparently, Tesla ordered the prune juice. But he won’t talk to you. So go take a look at his luggage.

There are coal smudges on his trunk, and when you lean down, you get attacked by a pair of scissors. If they really wanted to get rid of you, they would have attacked with something more, uh, powerful. But this is Poptropica!

Anyway, you get the Scissors, and now you start asking again.


The Coal Man says this:


But for now, skip asking everyone. Just go straight to the Porter. And the Porter confirms that, yes, the Coal Man did get something to drink.

Now go to the luggage cart, and Frenchy will be right there. Talk to her. She says the key might be in his cabin, the key to Tesla’s trunk. But you can’t get in, so she tells you to go dress up as the Porter. So, go to the Porter’s closet, get the Porter’s Outfit, and put it on. Now go to Tesla’s room.

Once inside, he says he wants a prune juice refill. So walk to his drawers, and pick up the prune juice. Refill, refill. Then he’s got to go to the bathroom. And you’ve got to find the key!

The location of the key varies. But first, you have to click everything else. The key will be in the place you click at the last moment, just before Tesla re-enters his room. And then, when you’ve got the Luggage Key and Tesla comes back, you can leave.


Go to his trunk, and use the key. The device is in there! Frenchy will call the guards, and Tesla gets dragged away… and you go tell Edison.


But.. oh no! Edison plays the device, and Tesla was on the other side of the train when this thievery happened! You’ve caught the wrong person! *GASP* You’ll get the Grainy Picture.


After Tesla had been arrested, Edison says that the device was rolling and it might’ve shown an image of the real thief. However, the only person that ended up there was Tesla, just chilling in a train window… on the other side of the train. Which means…

You have to go talk to Tesla. But you can’t go through the coal car because a guard is blocking the way. Instead, you have to go ON TOP of the train! But how? Ok, go to the luggage car, climb up the luggage and go up through the trapdoor.


Go up. Now you’re on the top of the train. Duck whenever the red on the right side of the screen is more up, which means a tunnel is about to pass by. And jump when the red is further down, which means a sack is about to get in your way. Make your way to the right until you see a hatch. That’s the coal car, which Tesla is in, all chained up.


Talk to him for a while. He’ll say that he had left behind something important in his cabin. And then he’ll ask for something to write with. Click use on the pencil, and he’ll draw a Sketch of Tesla’s Cabin like it was before he got captured.


Exit the coal room to the right. The guard will ask what you did, and you’ll lie saying that nothing’s up. Go to Tesla’s cabin and notice that the briefcase by Tesla’s bed is open. Click on Tesla’s sketch and once the screen opens up, click use. Click on the pencil and finally click on the briefcase to make a circle around it.


Go back to Tesla the way you did before. Talk to him, telling him that the briefcase is open and all. He’ll start to worry, because something important is inside. And he has no idea how the case was unlocked.


Um… Tesla… Poptropicans don’t really have necks.

Moving on… exit the coal car and go into Erik Weisz’s room in VIP Car 1. Ask about the briefcase, and he’ll start acting weird. You’ll get a clue about his odd behavior.

Go to the New York Times reporter (he’s near Mark Twain’s room in VIP Car 2) and ask about Erik Weisz’s odd behavior. He’ll show you a New York Times Article with a guy who looks familiar: Erik Weisz = Harry Houdini!


Go back into Houdini’s room and move to the right to the right to pick up the Lock Pick Bag. You’ll confront Weisz for being Houdini and he’ll escape through the hatch in his room.


Follow him!  Which means… more top of the train traveling. Making sure to avoid the obstacles, go to the left until you see an opening on the red cart.


(this is where he fell through)

Once you land on that cart, you’ll automatically go through the cart into the junk room. You’ll hear a “blub blub” coming from inside those weird curtains. Use the scissors to reveal Houdini trapped in a water tank. But this is no trick: He can’t get out!

Now, you need to pick those locks, fast. Line up the things using the appropriate shaped pick and line up the line to where the color of the lock thing changes. The first one is easy because the locks are in order, but the others are all mixed up. Take your time to get it right, while still going quick.


Once you get Houdini out of there, you’ll accuse Houdini of being a thief. However, he’ll reveal that he’s trying to solve the mystery, just like you are.

Finally, he’ll say to talk with Tesla AGAIN and find out what he is hiding. He’ll disappear (literally) and you need to go on the roof. Again. Go all the way to the luggage room or Houdini’s room (either way it’s fine, but it’s quite a distance from here) and jump up to the hatch.

Go back to the coal room, via the train top, and talk to Tesla.  He won’t talk until you free him. Use the lock picks again and he’ll tell you what was inside the briefcase: the transformer designed to power the ferris wheel. He’ll give you a Transformer Sketch. Go back to VIP Car 2 and talk to Mark Twain in his cabin. He’ll say this:


Ok, now go to the left until you reach the Pinkerton car. You have to be swift to avoid the traps. Jump up the boxes and jump over the first gap and fall down the second gap. Move quickly to the left and exit the Pinkerton car.


You’ll end up in the last boxcar where ANOTHER famous passenger is. And who is it?

Grover Cleveland… that guy who became president twice, right? Pick the second dialogue option, and Cleveland will help you piece the clues together. When he pauses, here’s the order in which to click the pictures: prune juice, coal marks, luggage key, briefcase, transformer.

Once the long conversation is over, go and get to that luggage room. Fortunately, the Pinkerton guard has moved the traps out of the way for you, so you can navigate easily. Keep going until you reach the luggage room. Use the key once again and click on the white cover on the case.


So… it’s either “Frenchy” or Gustav Eiffel. Talk to Eiffel, and he’ll say that he’s French, but there’s a lady’s handkerchief in there, so it’s… *dun dun dunnn* “Frenchy”. After the talk, you will arrive at the fair. Now to get off and stop her from destroying the transformer.


So… she’s only doing this for her country’s reputation? Oh wow. She will run off and you got to go after her. Once you reach the first area, you’ll see her cry to the guards and do a pity cry emote to get them to go after you. WHAT A DRAMA QUEEN!


The guards will chase after you now. Quickly go up to the podiums and wait for the first lion to be fed. Once it’s chewing, jump on its nose. Do the same with the rest of them. You’ll land on a platform. Quickly jump onto the bouncy window awnings and avoid the flames and sharp swords being thrown around. You’ll come across a sleeping Poptropican using a snake flute, and a snake going up and down. Jump up on the snake’s cap, then go left.

You’ll accidentally interrupt a dancing show, and you’ll experience one of many Poptropica firsts… these girls twirl!


Once you get on the ledge, you’ll see Frenchy at it again… she’ll pity-cry to the guards, and she’ll even throw in the laughing emote as well.

Now, get on the totem poles. Jump from totem pole to totem pole, trying not to fall to the ground. Once you get to the fourth one, the guards will shake one of the totem poles and knock them over, causing a domino effect. Go left – now!


(notice that the weather is starting to look iffy… are we at another Poptropican first here?)

You’ll see Frenchy jump up the Ferris wheel. Follow her by climbing ropes and jumping up platforms. And it’s raining. Great. Umbrella anyone? Anyone? No? Just get back on topic? We don’t care for these Poptropica firsts? Ok.


(Hey, watch the lightning! I’m having a confrontation here!)

Once you get up to platform #13, Frenchy will push a crate to push your platform down a notch.


Jump up the roof of the platform… and swing a rope thing across. O_o Yet ANOTHER Poptropican first!


You’ll land on the other side. Climb up more ropes and jump on more ferris wheel cars. Once you reach the roof of a damaged cart, Frenchy will throw Tesla’s transformer.


Quickly jump on the rope and swing. You’ll grab the Transformer and land on the other side once again. Jump up some more carts and corner Frenchy. She’ll be startled by a lightning flash and fall… into a water tank?



Talk to George Ferris and give him the transformer. Finally, talk to Grover Cleveland and he’ll reward you with the Island Medallion and credits to spend in the Store.


Congratulations, you’ve completed Mystery Train Island! Case closed. 😀

  1. I’m not sure what the guide says, but the key you find in his room is to his bag in the luggage car on the train.

  2. slantedfish (hi.Juyo) says:

    Thanks to Jennelle (Super Thunder), Brave Tomato, and Elmo Pwns for contributing to the PHB’s Mystery Train Island Guide! We hope it has been helpful to you.

  3. xD Yay us! *claps*

  4. Does anyone get this bug where you are stuck in a loop of stuff you have to do? I can’t get away from Tesla asking me if I have a pencil! HELP!!!!!!

    • Brave Tomato/ Eliza Williams the Huntress says:

      I had that problem if I exit out of Poptropica right after I finished Mystery Train. It repeats the last scene with Frenchy and the transformer!

      • matthewergc2014 says:

        when I first tried to do mystery train, i was running around using the pencil in every car. In the coal car, when i used it (and this was almost at the very begining of the island) an invisible telsa gave me the thing where you have to notice that the breifcase is open! i restarted the island. wierd, huh.

    • POPSICLE says:

      yes exit past the security guard and then go on top of the train to the coal car again

  5. Brave Tomato/ Eliza Williams the Huntress says:

    O_O Wow. I just noticed that right now. Yay us! ^)^

  8. Brave Tomato/ Eliza Williams the Huntress says:

    Uh-oh. Why isn’t one of the pictures showing up? 😐

  9. I used Transperacy (dunno if spelled rfight) Tonic and I did it in the 2nd gap thing. It worked!

  10. What I did to find the key was to click on EVERYTHING an right when he was about to enter, I clicked on the books. It probably varies from player to player like Max said, but for repeating a scene over and over, try clearing your cache, or save and press F5.

  11. my fav part bout mt is that you hav 2 swing on those swinging thing. I did not want to leve mt

  12. um…..does anybody know how to reset the island i havent found out yet

  13. just beat the island WOO!

  22. Clytemnestra says:

    I knew that the guy was houdini…I have a book about him and houdini was his stage name and i learned that erich weizs was his given name…no bragging or nything.

  23. when you leave an island and then come back how do you continue your game from where you get the thing from “frenchy?”

  24. nobody is listrnins to me aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  28. Clytemnestra says:

    Oh god I love this island sooo much! i play it over and overrr

  29. Uh, you can never get back on the train once you finish the island [unless, of course, you restart].

  30. Nevermind! Thanks for the help…sort of. 😀

  31. Silver Sky says:

    I don’t know if anyone noticed this, and this won’t really affect the gameplay, just wanted to point this out.
    On the train in the freight car…in front of the totem things there’s this bike-looking-thing. I thought it looked familiar. It was standing on the road on Time Tangled Island, Thomas Edison’s time period (I think it was)…

  32. i already finish this island!!!!!!!!!!!!! yeeehaaaa!!!!!!!!!!!!

  33. I just finished. I got stuck on the part where you had to swing on the ropes. I kept jumping off too late!

  34. Oh My Gosh I am so so happy that people make guides and stuff to help It makes it SO much easier!!!! thank you!!!!!

  35. Anony Mouse says:

    Guys- His name is TESLA, not Telsa. Would it be possible for you to fix that? 🙂

  36. Thankyou alot 😉 Also, there are alot of comments about the key. It is in-fact anywhere. At the last moment, click somewhere and I promise that’s where it will be, Such a guess! 🙂 Mine was where she said, Because I clicked there. This was very detailed, So thankyou for that, And It was easy to follow 🙂 And they guys name IS Tesla, not Telsa 🙂 Thankyou for the walkthrough!!

  37. cleopatra49 says:

    Hey, when ur tryin to get past the guard, how do you avoid the can??

  38. Thanks!! Couldn’t have done it without you guys!!! anyway as i was in front of “frenchy” i used my guitar, using space bar, then the lightning came ,.. SO AWESOME!!

  39. Erickaster says:

    Frenchy’s a girl. I’m a girl. Why can’t I do a pity cry? Plus, when she fell in the water tank she was like, “Help me I can’t swim!” and yet she was swimming…so I tried falling too and I just landed on the steps o_O

  40. i love this adventure!

  41. love it! ❤

  42. =D

  43. Silly Sinker says:

    They gave me 50 credits….

  44. Erik Weisz was Houdini’s real name. He took his stage name from famous French magician Robert Houdin. Houdin was his childhood idol. Robert’s family ended up hating Houdini because he used his name, and Weisz/Houdini ended up writting books to expose Roberts secrets and to prove him to be a fake. Houdini was accutally a terrible magician, but a great escape artist.

  45. Of course it was the le monde reporter she was in the luggage room

  46. popular singer says:

    i finished!!!!! this is my favorite island……………..for now

  47. ηicøℓα / ραη∂a says:

    The key isn’t in the last place you click; it’s in the place you click when Tesla is just about to re-enter his room. Just thought you’d want to know. 😀

  48. wolfbrotheryeahh says:

    I think Poptropica’s server dies automatically at midnight like just now… it did the same thing yesterday too. 😦 I was nearly at the end of the island. Hope it autosaved close to where I was.
    (I’m in a different time zone to you all, that’s why I’m talking about crashing now, not in four hours time.)

  49. wolfbrotheryeahh says:

    And it’s funny (not haha funny) Edison says that he and Tesla are rivals, but for a while they were actually partners in their work. Then Tesla got really ambitious and decided he didn’t like the way Edison ran things, so he left and started his own electricity… (not company, but you get the idea).

  50. rainbow ponies says:

    Thanks!Did anyone try using the lock piks when she was stuck in the water tank?If you did please tell me!

    Peace+Love+Happiness+Hugs=ME!!(and rainbow ponies)

  51. rainbow ponies says:

    I knew it was here when she went to get the guards after I found the device in there I don’t remember how though!Not bragging guys!

    Peace+Love+Happines+Hugs=ME!!(and rainbow ponies)

  52. zebraorange23 says:

    I have a question, How do you get off The Mystery Train Island without finishing it?

    • I don’t think you can 😦 I had to restart.

      • Actually you can. You go ALL the way to the right, past the coal guy, until you see the captain. Talk to him and he will ask you if you want to get off the train and start a new island

  53. justadoo444 says:

    🙂 Lightbulb Campfire idea in Thomas Edison’s Cabin.

  54. I think there’s a Tesla coil to the far left of the luggage car!

  55. Serious Shadow says:

    Go to the WC room. Open the doors and stand on the toilet. Close the doors, and you drop from the ceiling. weird.

  56. It was in the top box on the wardrobe for me!

  57. The transformer shows up in my inventory as a white box, and I can’t give it to Ferris!
    What should I do????
    (btw thanks for the guide!!)

  58. *sigh* did you get it wrong? it says dining car but in poptropica it says coal car.

    • No… the only mention of a dining car in the guide is for the prune juice, and it makes sense that prune juice is in there, not the coal car. In this part, you find the order sheet that says Tesla ordered prune juice.

      • sonaeshani says:

        ok. Pinkerton agent isn’t letting me go to Nikola Tesla. what do i do?

      • You’ll need to get to Tesla by going on top of the train car. Go to the luggage car and climb up the luggage until you can click “Go Up.” Now you’ll have to duck when a tunnel passes and jump when a sack passes. Keep going right until you see a hatch, and enter it to find Tesla. It’s all written in the guide (under the part that says “dun dun dunn”) if you need more details. 🙂

      • Thank you very much! I was wondering for a long time. Now I can finally solve this island! Yay! Thank you!

  59. cant do the totem pole thing.i’m stuck

  60. Speedy Tornado says:

    I finish it add me
    Username: JunMark

  61. fierce fang says:

    shanks for the help!!!!! i got 50 credits and i had 25 so i got 75 credits! i bought a ninja costume!!!!!

  62. fierce fang says:

    btw if u want to add me as a friend my username is lspfangirl

  63. On the swinging rope part you can actually jump up to the platform were “Frenchy” is, if you click on her it does nothing but you can shrink her if you have the shrink ray it’s really funny.

  64. Blue Wolf says:

    If you open the bathroom doors and jump onto the toilet, when you close the doors STILL ON THE TOILET, you’ll fall from the roof. Magical toilet, anyone?

  65. How many people do you talk to at the beginning? Thomas Edison keeps on telling me to talk to other passengers while I am waiting.

    • oh i missed somebody

      • Yeah, thats happening to me too, l don`t know how many passengers there are! I suppose we are missing something! Although l have been to every single cart l can get to but l can`t find anymore passengers. If you do get passed it please tell me where they all are 😦

  66. so im trying to swing to the other side of the ropes and i do it and i climb up and i dont see any other ropes to climb to the very top! help!

  67. this island is easy why do u need a guide

    • It might not be easy for everyone. Not everyone needs a guide, but for those who do, it’s good to have one available.

    • Quit being such a downer. Just because one person is good at this doesn’t mean everyone is. I have beat 10+ islands. I’m pretty good at this game. And guess what? I used a guide 1/2 the time.

  68. itstoostrangeforme says:

    Edison said the prune juice led to the COAL car!

  69. that was a long guide but the part where i had to find the key in telsa’s room i got the key just in time no really i did but i didn’t get to open the suitcase 😦 i already flunked realality tv show because the phone
    call for the pizza thing i did it wrong

  70. yay

  71. Even yayer.

  72. Thanks so much for making this! YOU ROCK AND EVERYTHING IS ACCURATE! YOUR VERY FUNNY TOO! thanks again! 🙂

  73. Just a bit of a LOL:
    Apparently, if you go to talk to the old millionaire in the top hat after you’ve gotten the medal, he’ll say this hilarious thing:
    ” Want to solve the mystery all over again? Open your Island Map and press Restart Island!”

  74. Chilly Lightning says:

    I can’t find Gustave Eiffel when i found the things from France thingy! Help!

  75. hatersloveme4897 says:


  76. palmpalm16 says:

I`ve gone as far as i can to the right and as far as i can to the left but PLEASE HELP ME, ANYONE! I can`t get past it!! And all the places l`ve been are: PLEASE HELP ;(

    • Check everything in the walkthrough to make sure you’ve done all the steps. To get past the Pinkerton security guard, you’ll need to go to the luggage car and climb up through the open trapdoor on the ceiling to go on top of the train.

      • I am at the luggage car and l found the “trapdoor” but it says:

        Please help me! I`m so stuck 😦

        Slanted Fish: You’re probably missing a step in the questline. Read the whole guide in order and find out what you’re missing.

  85. I found the key under the pillow too

  86. This helped me so much thanks you guys who did this site!

  87. I ❤ this site 🙂 it is so helpful and i hope that they will never stop being so very generous and giving us all this help. Long live Poptropica! Tell me if you agree!

  88. im the one who saved the feriss wheel

  89. Elizabeth says:

    YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  90. doctor geek says:

    I liked this island so much i finished it TWICE.

  91. I was stuck in the trap car thing, you know, before you see Cleveland, but when i say this, i completed that part AND the whole island.

  92. rapidashrocks524 says:

  101. Grey Claw says:

    Omg this island is the best. im like writing notes and such and being on dectivety (sp?) also I might just write a story detaling the whole island and maybe posting it on here. Probably wont be for a while though.

  102. you don”t need to go p the train after letting Houdini out of the tub thing he fell into.You can just go to the right.

  103. Sorry I mean UP the train.( not p the train in my comment I wrote before)

    How do you get out of mystery train island after you get to the fair? there’s no way on the train and there’s no blimp! Oh, no!

    • TornadoACE says:

      There is an easy way. Play the shrink shot game and then quit, then you will be back on the map!

  120. hi poptropicans

  121. Maddimoo002 says:

    Oh ya in one of the last cars there’s the green car machine looking thing from time tangles island.

  122. i have a glitch after i talked to grover cleveland he said to open the luggage but the key is not in my inventory

  123. I think it was so rude when she threw away the sheet

  124. Where About Is Mr.Eiffel?

  125. I think they should make Mystery Train one of those new color-y sound islands next.

  126. A. JoAnn says:

    This is my second fave after time tangled

  127. AnimanChan says:

  129. Mementovivere says:

    How do I get that mermaid hair from the pictures in Pinkerton´s trap wagon? I want it so bad.

  130. Golden Heart says:

    For me, the key was in one of Tesla’s drawers.

  131. What if I can’t see Frenchy in the luggage cart after I asked the porter about the coal miner getting a snack?

  132. Friendly Comet says:

    *dreamy sigh* I LOVE HISTORY!!! Sorry for the all-caps, but I just love history… and getting to meet Susan B. Anthony?

  133. hey guys friend me my name is fast horse on poptropica!!!

  134. I’m having trouble catching the transformer when you confront ‘Frenchy’

  135. djscratchstep says:

    I’m overviewing the whole thing before I work on the island. Different-colored font, clues, sounds a whole lot like a Phoenix Wright game. (Speaking of which, I’m playing PW:AA:T&T (Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations) currently. Good thing I’m playing this island, I need to step my justice-seeking game up!)

  136. Thomas Ed is telling me to walk around and when i talked to that gut he did not do anything!!!!!!!!!!! help plz

  137. this did not work for me do not trust!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  138. Bassicly whever i click on somone all that comes up is the clues they do not speak ?? what do i do? 😦

  139. puppylover4 says:

    I’m so close to beating this island Omg YAY

  140. uhhh…. i didnt get the machine in the luggage and now i dont know what to do

  141. I found a really funny glitch! Go into the room that says WC on top of it, open the toilet door, and jump on top of the toilet, then close the toilet doors. Your poptropican will randomly fall out of the sky!

  142. I think it is confusing

  143. FigureSkaterMeow says:

    Frenchy’s things arent in the trunk when I open it. I followed all the steps.

  144. Gentle Ant says:

    This is a long island…

  145. whats up the guy I help doesn’t finish his machine ever guys that’s not a LOL its a BAB ( ball and by ) Help me guys Yo!

  146. how many island are there

  147. Seruius Biker says:

    Poptropica won’t let me grab the porter’s outfit! What do i do?

  148. I’m chasing after the journalist once the train has stopped and when I restarted the part where the guards are chasing me I can’t do it. When the area loads I have already been caught and it tells me to try again. Help?!

  149. I can’t click on the prune juice HELP ME

  150. pleaselovemepadre says:

    soo after you talk to porter about coal guy “frenchie” isnt in the luggage place soo like what do i do

  151. A glitch happened to me where even though i collected everything but thomas still hadent finished the device. The possible reason is that I completed it 7 times

  152. xXbat_tagXx says:

    edison wont get the machine ready

  153. I just finished the island AGAIN (love it to death),and I found out there are two instances where you cannot and can lose.

    1.The first is when Tesla uses the bathroom. I actually stayed waiting for him to come back,but it turns out he’ll wait indefinitely outside his room till you pick a random spot,where the key will now be.

    2.The second is in the confrontation with the culprit on the wheel. They throw down the transformer,and you’re supposed to do a Tarzan and swing fast enough to catch it. However,if you’re too slow,it WILL fall to the ground and break.

    Interestingly enough,on my second try at the latter,I actually forgot to click on the rope and fell down. I sighed in despair,yet again,knowing that I had to replay the segment again-


    Then I landed on the ground,unscathed because I’m a Poptropican. Then I climbed up ALL THE WAY BACK,where the culprit was still waiting for me. Then the scripted sequence occurred,yadda yadda yadda. But that glorious moment when I caught the transformer while falling down to my inevitable survival was worth everything.

    I love Mystery Train.

  154. Thank you SO much for making these walkthroughs. They are truly amazing. I completed my 30th island because of the PHB. I’m a huge fan and I’d love to see more from you. Your walkthroughs aren’t just boring instructions. They’re funny too. Thanks so much again, ❤ ❤ ❤ !!! PLEASE ADD ME ON POPTROPICA : My user ish artsypie.
