Once every 100 years, the ancient capital of Poptropica — Poptropolis — rises from the sea to host a tournament created to prove tribal supremacy. Each of the tribes of Poptropica sends a representative to compete across a series of grueling events for a chance to become the Champion of Poptropica. This time, you’ll have to test your skill with two new events: the Volcano Race and Octopus Volleyball! Do you have what it takes to vanquish the competition and win glory for your tribe?

  • Poptropolis Games Island is Poptropica’s 27th island. The countdown started on May 17, 2012, and it was released on May 24 for members with no demo. It was opened to all on June 14, 2012. This was the same year as the 2012 London Summer Olympics. After a while, items from this island were labeled “Poptropolis Games 2012”, and the island “sank” on January 24, 2013.
  • However, less than a year later, it has risen again, this time with the new SUI (sound-updated island) format as well as two new events: Volcano Race and Octopus Volleyball! Poptropolis Games returned on November 13, 2013 for members and December 5, 2013 for everyone.
  • There was a preview activity where you could help dig up the Games, and the tribe that helped out the most (Wildfire) was awarded its own monument on Main Street when the island returned.
  • “Poptropolis” may have been one of the original names for Poptropica. The web domain has been owned by Poptropica’s company, Pearson, since 2007, the year Poptropica first launched.
  • Starting from December 21, 2012 (supposedly the “end of the world”), the Poptropica Creators’ Blog reported that Mews Foundation seismologists were detecting tectonic activity on the island. Over the next few weeks, more shaking was reported, and it was confirmed that the island would sink forever by January 24, 2013, which it did. However, it has since returned!
  • According to the island description, Poptropolis is the ancient capital of Poptropica, making it the most important of all the islands!
  • Common room: Poptropolis Training Hall and Gym
  • According to a Poptropica framework file, this island’s code name is “Tribal”.
  • Poptropica Members can play a bonus quest after completing the Poptropolis Games. An ancient warrior has returned to Poptropolis to reclaim the championship for himself. Prepare to battle the toughest competitor in the history of the Poptropolis Games! If you win, you will be awarded the Ancient Warrior Outfit.
  • Members get an additional Poptropolis Games gear pack, which includes Wrestling Singlet costume, Plant-a-Statue power, and Discus item. The Wrestling Singlet is ONLY available during Early Access!
  • The Poptropica Store gold card item “Balloons” contains a Poptropolis Games balloon.
  • Along with the release of the island came the Tribes feature, in which you can pick a tribe to represent, get a jersey with your tribe’s colors, and compete against the other tribes.

      • I’ve gone all the way to the bottom, but I can’t find the city!

        Slanted Fish: At the bottom of the sea, click on the mound of dirt to dig and you’ll be taken back up out of the water.

  2. I wonder if you get to choose “your” tribe… Would it create different stories?

    • no when you chose a tribe there’s a tribe when you join a tribe you can talk to fellow tribe and talk about something and play games

    • You should be able to create your own tribe. You could call it whatever you wanted and other people could join and you could create your own common room. You could compare scores to other Poptropician created tribes.

  3. I can’t wait for this island!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. There better be a tribe called Early Poptropica. That’s where I’m from. I also have a house in Counterfeit Island, but I’m scared of black widows, so it’s just my summer home.

  5. This island seems kind of like a combination between the Olympics and the Hunger Games. Maybe that’s just because of the name…
    I wonder what sort of tribes there will be. Maybe male vs. female? Maybe you get to pick your favorite animal or something? Maybe it’s even alphabetical!

  6. Hunger Games, anyone? Haha, now all they need is a Harry Potter inspired island and I can die happy.

    • Incredible Bubbles says:

      Same, except, maybe a deltora quest island and an icarly island too.
      And spongebob island.

    • beefy seal says:

      We need a Harry Potter island of course.This is like the hunger games, so thats covered.Mythology island is kinda like Percy Jackson, so we are almost covered.Oh,and a Eragon island

  7. It’s an alternated version of Effie Trinket’s quote!!!
    I LOVE the Hunger Games series. All they got to do now is make something with fighting cats (Warriors) or with crazy hippogriffs (Harry Potter).

    • I LOVE the Hunger Games. And the games are not like it. We need a new one! Like the Hunger Games! And a Harry Potter one. And a 39 Clues one. PLEASE HELP CREATORS!!!!!
