The Island Hopper Sweepstakes is on! (also, dinosaurs)

Greetings Hawk-tropicans! This is Giant Hawk speaking, and I’ve got some extremely sweet sweepstakes news for all of you!


That’s right! After I just posted about this sweepstakes yesterday, the Creators have given us not only the full information on it, but the Sweepstakes have now officially begun! I’d better get to it, because there is a lot of information to go through.

So first off, here is the official description of the Sweepstakes according the Poptropica Creators Blog.

From today until December 31, we’ve hidden one Island Hopper Ticket in every common room on Poptropica. Each ticket that you collect counts as one entry into the sweepstakes. There are over 40 tickets to find, which means you have over 40 chances to win!

‘Nuff said? Well, it’s a bit more complicated then that. So, let’s walk through it together, shall we?

When you first log in, you’ll be greeted by the pop-up pictured above. If you click on ‘get hopping‘, you will be taken to this page, which explains the rules and prizes in detail.

Well, now that you are on Poptropica, you can really start playing!

To participate, simply go into any Common Room. If you’re lucky (and if you are visiting from one of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia*), you’ll find a golden ticket like this one:


*You must be a legal resident of the US to qualify for a prize, according to the rules of the sweepstakes.

Click on it, and you’ll see a screen like this:


Simply type the e-mail address you wish to enter the Sweepstakes with in the space given (with a parent’s consent if you’re a minor), submit it, and congratulations, you’ve done it! You’ve entered the Island Hopper Sweepstakes – at least, for your first time.

What do I mean? Well, go to your backpack and look in the category ‘Island Hopper’. Here, you’ll find your ticket, which will look like this:


Now you can go hop islands, including Home Island and the separate parts of some newer islands, in search of up to 47 tickets, therefore giving yourself more of a change to win one of the Island Hopper Sweepstakes’ fabulous prizes.

Oh, that’s right! I haven’t mentioned the prizes yet! Silly me.

So what are these prizes? Well, the Sweepstakes’ twenty runner-ups will receive a Poptropica Blimp Toy (which comes with an exclusive code to play a special Blimp Adventure mini-quest) along with a 1-month membership.

Meanwhile, the contest’s ten 2nd place winners will each receive a 6-month membership.

Finally, the lucky 1st place winner of the Island Hopper Sweepstakes will be able to meet Poptropica’s creator Jeff Kinney in a thirty minute long video call, which will be featured on the Poptropica Creators’ Blog. The grand prize winner also gets a 6-month membership and a Poptropica Blimp Toy!

In addition, from now to the end of the year, there will also be weekly sweepstakes! Every week, five weekly winners will win a 1-month membership. Each week period starts at 12:01am ET on Thursdays and ends at 11:59pm ET on Wednesdays.

So what are you waiting for? Get hopping, because the Island Hopper Sweepstakes will end on December 31!


In other news, Pixar’s newest film, The Good Dinosaur, has made its way onto Poptropica!


Simply head over to Main Street, and you’ll find The Good Dinosaur’s advertisement. There, you can watch the trailer for the movie and unlock the Spot Follower.

So, are you all excited about Poptropica biggest giveaway ever? Are you going to see The Good Dinosaur when it comes to theaters? Feel free to answer in the comment section below!

Until next time…

  1. PROTIP: The tickets are always located on the bottom floor of the common room, regardless of where the door is, and is generally on the right side. You’re welcome!

  2. Just in case anybody needs help. Mission Atlantis and Survival Island do not have a common room. For PoptropiCon Island Episode 3, if you already completed the island, you’ll have to restart the island to get to the common room.

  3. I found a cheat that might work to bypass members only block on islands.

    For Big Nate island:
    1. Use the link
    -After the ? put the room codes
    -Main Street: desc=BigNateMain&island=BigNate
    -Pop in Shoope: desc=Shoppe&island=BigNate
    -Klassic Komics: desc=Komix&island=BigNate
    -Cap’n Salty: desc=Saltys&island=BigNate
    -Studio: desc=Cheese&island=BigNate
    -School Street: desc=School1&island=BigNate
    -Inside School: desc=School2&island=BigNate
    -Science Lab: desc=School3&island=BigNate
    -Detention: desc=School4&island=BigNate
    -School Basement: desc=School5&island=BigNate
    -Playground: desc=Playground&island=BigNate
    -Playground House: desc=PlaygroundHut&island=BigNate
    -Puffin Point: desc=Puffin&island=BigNate
    -Under Water: desc=Oyster&island=BigNate
    -Puffin Island: desc=Puffin&island=BigNate
    -Seal Island: desc=Seal&island=BigNate

    2. Do what you are suppose to do in each room.

    *For other islands, it should work as long as you figure out the room codes.*

      1. Some of them are weirdly placed, per se. For instance, there is a ticket in a Common Room on PoptropiCon Island Part 3, but you can’t reach if the Island is completed.

      2. I’m missing all but one ticket, and I can’t figure out which one. I’ve done all the classics, all the SUIs, Home Island, and some of the episodic islands. The only ones I’m not sure about are the episodic islands. What could I be missing?

      3. Ive found common rooms in these episodic islands:
        Arabian Nights 1 & 3
        Poptropicon 1, 2, & 3

        as well as every other island and Hub Island. All that totaled up to 46 tickets, so I’m missing one.

  4. I’m debating whether I should get all the tickets at once or limit the number I get per week… Eh. I’ll just get them all anyways. 😛

  5. I am fairly certain I am visiting from the US as i am currently on the east coast and always have been, why am I not seeing the tickets??

    1. If you’re logging in from the US, make sure your Friends profile also shows you’re from the US and you should be able to see the tickets. However, as GH mentioned, you have to be a legal resident to be eligible to win anything. 😛
