Not a Monster Carnival, but Fall Festival 🎠 — coming any moment now!

Hey Poptropicans! Something new is coming to town…

On Instagram, the Pop Creators recently shared two sneak peeks of a Fall Festival, which is going to be a limited time event… and it’s dropping by starting tomorrow! 🎟🎡🍭

The first pic shows a “snack shack” with cotton candy, with elements of the art reminiscent of the carnival fun of Monster Carnival Island. What’s also intriguing is the caption, hinting about getting to “join your friends”… could this mean more features coming to the Friends Beta currently on Haxe?

The other sneak peek is a gif of a Poptropican holding up and squeezing a big, pink, fluffy toy bear, perhaps a prize for winning a carnival game.

🍂Fall Festival starts TOMORROW! 🙌

A post shared by Official Poptropica (@poptropicacreators) on

Based on the surrounding grass, this extravaganza looks like it could be taking place on Home Island (which has been known to get makeovers from time to time). Or perhaps it’ll get its own little limited time island? Whatever the case, we’ll be here to join in the autumnal festivities! 🍂


Though the Fall Festival hasn’t arrived yet, perhaps a hint of it has already poked through in-game: if you head over to the Poptropica map, you’ll see an envelope sticking out of the Poptropica logo.

Clicking on it doesn’t do anything, at least not yet. But maybe it’s a sign of an oncoming mail feature, like what we saw with Paradise Island?

Have we got mail?

Also, oddly enough, the Zomberry Hero event is still on the map and playable even though it’s the second week of November! Perhaps it’ll soon be replaced by the next limited time carnival event, though…


In less exciting news, the ad attacks continue. Logging into the game the other day, PHB staffer Gentle Dolphin discovered a pop-up video ad in the bottom corner. It goes away if you either scroll down to the video player below the game screen, or zoom out to where both the game screen and video player are both viewable. 

That’s not all, though: even the billboard has been infected! Take a look at this Grammarly ad embedded in Home Island:

Poptropica recently shared that they’re experimenting more with ads because of greater demand from advertisers in the current pandemic. Rather disruptive for players, tbh, but the hope is they’re temporary!

For more insights from Pop HQ, check out the recent Q&A they did with the PHB, where they shared about what 2021 holds for Poptropica, whether certain beloved old features will return, and more. Definitely worth a read! 📰 Catch you all at the carnival coming up! 🎡

    1. Can someone tell me how to use the Format Loader properly? When I try to log in to haxe all it shows a black screen and when I disable ad blocker still the same results happen

      1. Try turning off ad blocker, yeah ads are a bit of a pain, but that’s just the state of this game and there’s nothing we can do about it,
        After doing that go to
        https://server.idkonpop.com/pop/loader.html
        Then switch over to HTML5 (Haxe JS)
        And put your login as usual, and click submit, if it still doesn’t work then it’s either your device or browser, but if it’s your device you can also use the format loader on mobile

    2. Yup, unfortunately Poptropica often doesn’t load when ad blocker is enabled. You can also try deleting all cookies on your browser that are from “poptropica.com” to try to get the game to load.

What's popping, Poptropicans?
