Shrink Ray SUI out for members, Arabian Nights Ep.2 out December 11 for members & new island?

Hey everyone! Over the past couple of days, there have been a lot of updates to Poptropica and a lot of new stuff to come to Poptropica soon! So hold on tight, the creators are going to entertain you all Thanksgiving Week! Let’s get to the post!

Shrink Ray Re-Released: Lots of glitches though

The creators just  re-released Shrink Ray Island as an SUI (sound-updated-island)! In an SUI, the creators add a lot of new features such as: a bigger screen, sound effects, and music! This makes the island even more fun! But sadly, once you make an island bigger-and-better you get a good bit of glitches. This time, it was the worst SUI with glitches I have ever seen. So far, I’ve had to restart 5 times and have spent 8 hours on it – I missed a couple of meals along the way too! 🙁 If you are having any glitches on the island, it’s best to contact the creators and they will get on it and try to fix whatever problem you are having.

As of right now, only members can play the new version of Shrink Ray Island. Sadly, there is no word yet on when it’ll release for all (but I have heard that some non-members have completed it because of a glitch). I almost forgot this! Now that Shrink Ray is a SUI, it is at the front of the Map with all the other SUI islands, so you don’t have to scroll through all those pages to play Shrink Ray! If you need any help, check out our Shrink Ray Island Guide!

Arabian Nights Ep.2 coming out next Tuesday

EDIT: The creators pushed back the date of the release to December 11, 2014 for members and December 30, 2014 for all!

The creators mentioned a couple of weeks ago on their Twitter that Arabian Nights Island: Episode 2 comes out for members on November 25th,which is a Tuesday and not a Thursday this time because next Thursday is Thanksgiving. For non-members, it comes out December 11th which is 3 weeks later on the usual Thursday. Here’s a pic on the Twitter conversation:

But here’s what I really wanted to talk about, the creators haven’t mentioned this yet, but they updated the tour page with information about the new episode! The name of the second episode is Lair of Thieves and the premise of the episode is:

In the den of the forty thieves, danger lurks around every corner. To outwit the most dangerous thieves in the desert, you’ll need a little help evening the odds — and you’ll find it in the form of an incredible magic power!

Wow! This is starting to get intresting! I wonder what the magic is, like some fairy dust or a magic carpet? I can’t wait to see what the 3rd episode will bring us!

Galactic Hot Dog Island: another island sponsored by Poptropica


The creators have a new island in the making! This one is called Galactic Hot Dog Island, but it’s not a typical island though. This is the first island since 2012 where the creators’ last sponsored Jeff Kinney’s Wimpy Boardwalk Island. Galactic Hot Dogs is made by Max Brailler, who has made a couple of books for Poptropica and is a game designer for them too. Have you noticed a theme? Creators are making islands out of material that they have made in real life! It’s like a fantasy world for them! The creators have been posting pics and info for a couple of weeks on their twitter about Galactic Hot Dog in general, so go check it out!

After digging through their twitter, The creators also were considering another Wimpy Kid Island too! But they decided on a Galactic Hot Dog Island instead I guess. I would of liked to see another Wimpy Kid Island though!

Anyway, that’s it! I hope you enjoyed this super-long post! Have a great Thanksgiving Week!
