The party has ended. Check out the recap here!
Hey Poptropicans. As 2020 comes to an end, it’s time to say goodbye to Flash, the technology that Poptropica has been running on since its beginning in 2007, which is being replaced by Poptropica on Haxe.
But we here at the PHB couldn’t let it go without a bang! And as the holidays draw near, we figure the timing’s good for a Poptropica party. So join us and let’s commemorate the occasion as our accessibility to years of Poptropica memories will soon be “gone in a Flash”!
- ⏰ When: Saturday, December 19 @ 8 pm Eastern / 7 pm Central / 6 pm Mountain / 5 pm Pacific (for all other time zones, check this time converter). In some parts of the world, it may be Sunday morning, December 20. Save the date!
- 📍 Where: Hanging out in Poptropica’s common rooms on Mythology and 24 Carrot Island—we’ll try to meet on both Flash and Haxe, though whether Flash stays accessible can’t be guaranteed! Your best bet on where to find the party is to stay with us on our Discord server, the PHC — a fun, safe chat space where PHB staff and other Poptropicans regularly hang out. It’s open anytime, so come on in!
- 💥 Why: To give one last hurrah for Flash, the engine that’s sustained Poptropica for over a decade. And to celebrate the holidays!
While Poptropica is working on bringing over many beloved classic islands from Flash to the new era of Haxe, and have already been making some progress, some things are still going to look different. We’re hopeful for the future of Poptropica, but the transition is definitely a milestone — one that we’d like to commemorate with you.
So bring your nostalgic tears, your anticipatory fears, and temper that with your gratitude for all the years and a fair bit of holiday cheers, too. We’ll see you there as the game changes gears! 🥳

Rest in peace, Adobe Flash: 1996 – 2020. 😔
RIP 🙏 The end of an era.
I’ll be sure to make it
Awesome, see you there! 🥳
does this mean I will have to change my account to flash????
They said the party will be on Haxe as well.
I’d like to join but I have prior appointments at that time. 😭😭😭😭
Aw, sorry the time doesn’t work out for you. 😔 Come by the PHC anytime, though!
Even though I’m not too active on Pop nowadays, I’ll join for sure! I think I’ll be in the Mythology common room.
Can be at 3:00 pm Eastern?
The party officially kicks off at 8 p.m. Eastern, but our PHC Discord server is open anytime, so feel free to pop in early and hang out. 🙂
I will be with you all in spirit, eating fish tacos
Mmm, fish tacos. 🌮
Cannibalism much? 😂👍
Nature’s wild. 😜
Hence the name, Slanted FISH
