Best of Land: Obstacle Courses, Racer Island, & monkey ruins

Hey Poptropicans! The Best of Land: Obstacle Courses have been announced on the Creators’ Blog, and without further ado, here they are (click to enlarge and view captions):

Cast a vote for your favorite on the poll in the sidebar of the Creators’ Blog! As of now, Silver Lightning’s maze in the lead by a fair bit. These are the current results:

  • Comical Ant (14%)
  • Dangerous Fox (2%)
  • Fast Lizard (7%)
  • Prickly Fish (4%)
  • Serious Bird (5%)
  • Shifty Bubbles (6%)
  • Shy Paw (5%)
  • Silly Whale (8%)
  • Silver Lightning (37%)
  • Silver Sun (7%)

Also, congrats to Serious Bird, who was not only featured among the best Obstacle Courses above, but was also the readers’ poll winner for his fast food Village! Delicious.

"From Serious Bird, you don't have to go far for a bite to eat in this town. Does the building on the right shake in an earthquake?"

The next and final Land challenge is the theme of Haunted House, and the Creators will be featuring the best ones on Halloween (Friday, Oct 31)! Remember, the Land public preview itself ends on the 30th, so if you’re a non-member, be sure to make the most of this cool feature while you can. 🙂

Poptropica has continued to tweet behind-the-scenes pics, and fresh from this pile are these monkey ruins, with no further explanation. Just speculating here: perhaps these are related to the monkey sneak peeks we saw earlier, which may mean an island based on the Poptropica comics with Jorge and Oliver. We’ll have to wait and see! 😛

Here’s another behind-the-scenes look at something called Racer Island. As cool as this sounds, though, it was an island concept that has been abandoned (much like WaterThrill Island). 😦

In other news, don’t forget to enter (if you dare, that is) the PHB’s 6th annual Halloween costume contest! Fourteen winners will be announced this Friday in time for Halloween, and if you win, your costume will be featured on the PHB! Pop to the top, Poptropicans. :mrgreen:

  1. Shy Paw’s was the best,imo. It was the only one which actually had real obstacles in it.

    I know I’ll be a monkey when this ‘monkey’ island comes out.I wonder if they’ll actually,as a gag,make a reference to the actual Monkey Island(tm) series?

    Oooooh,I want to ride those things so bad = P

What's popping, Poptropicans?
