You snooze, you lose. Have fun! (D.C. Diner)

As you might have heard or seen, the new mini-game for Mystery Train Island, D.C. Diner, is out! As many PHB commenters correctly predicted, it is similar to the game Diner Dash!

D.C. Diner

To play D.C. Diner, visit the travel map and click on the starburst next to the Mystery Train logo. Or, if you log in, you can click the D.C. Diner slide in the rotating feature box to go there instantly! (Poptropica Creators’ Blog)

D.C. Diner: gameplay & prizes!

The visitors of the diner want a quick bite to eat before hopping on the train to Chicago. You act as the waiter/waitress and serve food and drink to them before they leave.First you have to seat them, then wait as they order.

To fill drinks, click on the machines for soda, root beer, and coffee. For food, visit the chef and pick from chicken, burger, or dessert based on what the customers ordered. When customers are done, pick up their plates and wash them. Throw unused orders in the trash bin.

There are more shifts and it gets harder each shift, like for example, a timer. When people leave, they add 20-30 seconds to the timer, depending on the shift number. Upgrades are also available each shift!

  • Hostess (non-members and members): Seats the guests each time a seat is available
  • Fast Drinks (non-members and members): Makes pouring the drinks faster
  • Larger Tray (members): Easier to carry more orders
  • Busboy (members): Makes washing dishes instant.
  • Faster cook (members): Makes orders faster.

After 3 shifts, non-members won’t be able to go on, but can still play the minigame. Members can go on up until five shifts. There are also prizes to be had in this all-new minigame, which I’m sure you’ve all been waiting for!

There are VIPs that come into your diner that you have to serve, but you don’t know it yet. Whenever they leave, you get an item, and at the end of each shift, you find out who they are. Five prizes are to be had in this game!

dc lightbulb

Edison Light Bulb (non-members and members): When Thomas Edison comes into your diner, you get this handheld item that lights up when you press spacebar!

dc haircut

Mark Twain Haircut (non-members and members): When Mark Twain comes into your diner, he leaves you with his snazzy haircut that you can wear! Mustache not included. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

dc magician's hat

Magician’s Hat (non-members and members): When Harry Houdini comes into your diner, he leaves with you his magic hat! This magic hat, when you wear it and press spacebar, bubbles appear and a cute rabbit pops up! ๐Ÿ™‚ Sometimes flowers pop up too, but it’s not as cute as the rabbit. ๐Ÿ˜›

dc eiffelhat

Eiffel Tower Hat (members): When Gustav Eiffel stops by your diner, he gives you an Eiffel Tower hat, a hat that will surely make you a fashion “attraction”! ๐Ÿ˜€ Get it? Oh never mind.

dc tesla coil

Tesla Coil (members): In my opinion, this is the best prize :P. When Nikola Tesla stops by, he leaves you with this handheld Tesla Coil. When you wear it and press spacebar, it electrifies you in little lightning bolts and emits a flash of light! ๐Ÿ˜€

I’m still unsure as to whether all of the prizes are available for all. The first three prizes are available for non-members.If you have any tips for the game,ย  just leave a comment! Credit to Striped Grape for all the item cards! (You’ve been credited a lot now, huh? ๐Ÿ˜€ )

Flags & friends

In other news, Plague and other PHB readers have found out about country flags and friend buttons in Poptropica common and Multiverse rooms! Seems like now we can add friends on Poptropica! ๐Ÿ™‚

EDIT: PHC people have noticed that the flags and friend button started working last night, but got removed. But stay tuned! It might come back! ๐Ÿ˜€

The only problems is that the flag is always USA, as Rory has noticed. Even though he lives in Europe, the flag on his character still says he is in the USA. Another problem for now is that the friend button doesn’t work yet. But stay tuned for more info about the friend button and country flags! ๐Ÿ˜€

Adventure Time ad: Jake follower

Also, thanks to Mstorm/Mbones/Madrigal, we have info on the newest ad to make its way into Poptropica: the Adventure Time video ad! all you have to do is watch the video and get a Jake follower at the end! So far, it’s available on Early Poptropica. Try finding more islands it’s on!

Costume closets?

One last thing: Have you checked out the latest Daily Pop sneak peek? It hints about costume closets! Do you think it will be an addition to the Poptropica world? Would this be a great addition? Leave your opinion in the comments! as for me, I’m out. Peace! ๐Ÿ˜€ Phew long post ๐Ÿ˜›

    1. What? We can’t post that everytime one of us becomes a mod. But still- congratulations! Speaking of which, ST… Well, you know what I mean. Or I hope you do.


      1. OMG OMG OMG, isn’t that liek, uber great and stuff? I’m feeling all stuffy inside. Rofl.

  1. Well, I found out I double posted on Aug. 11 and 12, 2010. And now I double posted again on Aug 11 and 12, 2011. Creepy XD

  2. So, with the flags you’d be able to see what country someone’s from…. interesting…. Althought it makes the chat question “are you living in the USA?” a bit useless…..
    Friend? Will friends be available on Poptropica like they are on Club Penguin, now?
    Diner Dash? Sometimes I find those games fun, but at other times, I find them really annoying.
    Man… Tesla coil looks cool.. shame I ‘m not member…
    [BTW, some trivia…. for any 39 clues fans out there, you’ll notice that all the items come from famous ‘cahill’ people.]

    ST: Hm, never noticed XD

    1. As well as it looks cool, other people will get annoyed. Because it doesn’t allow them to move.

      ST: But after people let go of spacebar, they can move.

  3. There’s a new advertisment. It’s a video one, and it’s for adventure time. Watch it, and recieve a Jake follower.
    As far as I know, you can find it on Early Poptropica.

  4. You know what’s not right? There was 3 seconds after I served my last guest, and 3 seconds passed and she didn’t leave. So when I quit, I saw her walking out the door! Just not right.

  5. LOL, I finished it in 8 minutes its easy with membership.
    Oh, the hammer is kinda like Thor’s Hammer.
    And…… Thats odd ST its like Dejavu O_O

    ST: I know right? ๐Ÿ˜›

  6. There are some other….interesting…..sneak peeks.
    Take the latest one, mob scene.
    It shows what looks like a Poptropican trying to tightrope walk with a mob of cheering [or booing] robots below.
    There’s also a another one with robot sketches. One of the robots is yelling ‘Viva la revoulcion robot!’
    Domi Arigato, another picture, shows some fashionably dressed robots.
    Could this have anything to do with the evil island? hmm….
    Also, look to the background of the costrume closet sneak peek. At the bottom left, there are photo snapshots.
    In a much, much older sneak peek titled ‘say cheese’ it shows similer looking snapshots.
    And, interestingly enough, when you look carefully at the snapshots in the walk in closet sneak peek, it shows a little dude in his bed. The little dude looks like the one in the ‘say cheese!’ sneak peek.
    Suspicious much?

    1. 1. Buy Dr. Hare’s miniquest for 250 credits in the poptropica store.

      2. Fall through the bottom without getting caught

      3. Costumize his beard

  7. Hi! I’m new to PHB and it is awesome. I try to check every post, but for now it seems the creators and Hijuyo are not posting a lot. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Can anyone give me some tips about PHB, and when Mystery Train will come for non-members.

    Hijuyo: The PCB updates as much as it always has, which is usually [almost] every day except on holidays weekends. The PHB updates whenever there’s Poptropica news worth mentioning.

  8. I did all that dashing for nothing…Non-Members only get the Lightbulb and Haircut, and I got those before I played D.C Diner. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  9. Mark Twain? I’ve read a few of his books and quotes before at school. They’re pretty good. (Especially Huckleberry Finn (; )

  10. I’m done with D.C Diner, done with Shrink Shot, and done with Prepare For Impact. What do I do while waiting for Mystery Train Island?

  11. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Nobody is replying to my comments, and I know this isn’t Poptropica-related, but I like having replies!

What's popping, Poptropicans?
