Baron's Airship, Mini Quests

Treasures laid for the Baron’s Crusade πŸ—Ίβ˜ οΈ

Ahoy, Poptropicans! The Baron’s side quest is here as promised, and it’s available to all players. Read on for a spoiler-full walkthrough!

To get started, meet the Baron in her quarters, a new room you’ll find aboard her big airship. Head inside the Cabin of Curiosities and open the hatch below the Baron’s throne. Under the shop, you’ll find the Baron poring over maps. She’ll ask you to join her in digging up treasure on a secret island that’s not on your map. Accept, and off we go!

You’ll land on the shore of a quiet island that feels kinda like the final scene of Skullduggery Island, where OG Poptropicans would have beaten Captain Crawfish to a hidden treasure. Curiously, the Baron later mentions that the treasure we’re now looking for belonged to the captain! (Is he still alive…?) Anyway, head up the hill and enter the cave.

(Sighting secrets: In the water, there’s a purple alien orb reminiscent of Mission Atlantis, while in the distance, we can see the skull-shaped rock of the Pirate Outpost from Skullduggery. Thanks to Ammonite for the tips!)

Inside the cave, the Baron follows you. Head right, skipping over all the gaps until you reach some greenish stone. From here, head downwards, watching out for the poison darts that will knock you back. When you touch water, swim left until you come across a lever. Click on it to lower the water level, which allows you to swim right to the next lever by the barred hole. Click that and the water level goes down some more, allowing you to swim all the way left, where you’ll find the next puzzle.

You’ll come face-to-face with a giant stone wheel with mysterious markings on it (is that a % sign?). But don’t worry about that β€” the Baron’s got it under control. While she’s the brains of this operation, you’re the brawn. With the Baron’s trusty wrench, you’re all set to whack any “guards” of the treasure… and here they come now!

A mini-game will start, and it’s basically whack-a-mole with skeletons popping up from any of the nine large holes under the treasure wheel. You’ll have to move your view back and forth as you can’t see all the holes at once. The skeletons don’t go away easily either: they have to climb out quite a bit first before smacking them has the desired effect, but you can’t wait too long, or you’ll have to start the mini-game over.

Once you successfully hold off the skeletons long enough, the Baron will unlock the wheel, revealing a treasure vault full of gold, gemstones, and Captain Crawfish’s hat and sword. For your part, she’ll share 500 credits and a pirate costume with you. Congrats and enjoy!

Back at the Baron’s, you can learn more about this daredevil sky pirate through conversation as well as exploring her home, just like in Amelia’s side quest. Speaking of Amelia, there’s tea to be uncovered…

Over in the top right corner of the Baron’s quarters, there’s an abandoned little box with a unicorn plushie and frame jutting out. Click on it and you’ll see an old news clipping behind smashed glass, with a photo of Amelia and the Baron together like best buds. The headline from the Poptropica Times reads, “Local Adventurers Save the Island.”

What fractured their friendship? For now, the Baron reveals only that she had a crew once, and that “trust is hard to come by.”

There’s more to discover around the Baron’s quarters. What surprises have you found? Read on for more trivia and theories!

Baby Ack plushie, golden Rumpelstiltskin, and more treasures await…

To the left of the Baron, you’ll find her fearsome portrait with first mate Ack the monkey, and a familiar green skull that activates the whack-a-mole mini-game from earlier (just for practice!). Playing the Baron’s Bucket of Bones earns you 50 credits per completion, much like “Clear the Skies,” the plane mini-game on the airship deck.

Head down to the lower floor and you’ll see a map on the wall that shows the Baron’s been looking for a “golden city.” Could this be a hint for the upcoming Secret of the Jade Scarab Island, which involves archeological digs for treasure? At any rate, the map bears some interesting port names (potential relations in parentheses): Yoller or Holler (a loud shout), Mustang (sports car), Rhe or Rye (grain), Sanders (Bernie or Colonel?), Omamora (close to omamori, Japanese luck amulets), Lagos (Nigeria’s largest city).

You can also scan through titles of books on her shelf: Lost Cities of Poptropica, Grappling with Grapple-Pap, Into the Maw of Glowbhax: In Search of the Island Devourer (perhaps a reference to Haxe, which did kind of devour many islands). The Baron sure likes her myths legends.

Also in this corner nook, you’ll find a framed photo of the Baron and Ack inside a bank, throwing money down to people on the street. Robbery with a Robin Hood twist? Anyway, there’s another pic of this adventuresome duo beside where Ack sleeps, and it’s adorbs.

Thanks for joining us in exploring the Baron’s Crusade and cabin! What did you think of this side quest of skullduggery? Do you have theories about the Baron’s history with Amelia, or any other aspects of her life? Share with us in the comments. Happy sailing!

Baron witness to firing squid stories πŸ¦‘πŸ”₯

Hey Poptropicans! We’ve got news of a side quest, a Squid Game takeover, Cinder’s punk rock glory, and fan art stories. Let’s fire away!

It seems the Halloween surprise we’ve been waiting for may not be the return of Zomberry Hero, but something completely new and involving the Baron! According to the Pop Creators’ Blog, “The Baron’s headed on an adventure and rumor has it, you’re the prime candidate to come along.” They even shared this stunning Pop portrait of the Baron with Ack, the monkey and first mate! Nice touch with the monkey wrench.

With the Baron here only until the end of Red October, and the mention of the Halloween surprise, it seems likely we’ll get to play this upcoming side quest sometime this month. Plus, unlike Rumpel’s Challenge, the adventure will be available to all players!

Stay tuned for more news of the Baron’s latest tricks and treats. For now, enjoy the Red October skies and all the fun stuff aboard the big airship!


Turns out there are bloodier shenanigans than the Baron on Poptropica, and they involve a much-hyped Netflix show! The Pop Creators have advanced from simple Squid Game memes to recreating its deadly world in the game itself, as seen in their latest TikTok clip:

Squid Game but make it ✨Poptropica style✨ Y’ALL GOTTA BE SQUIDDING ME IF YOU SAY YOU’RE NOT DOWN πŸ¦‘πŸ‘€ #foryou #gamertiktok #poptropica #fyp

♬ original sound – poptropicacreator

While Squid Game with its firing squads is not made for children, Poptropicans of all ages can still appreciate this kid-friendly tribute that takes the Gamer Clubhouse to a whole new level with its stacked beds and coffins. As for the prize: how about 45.6 little glowing bunnies?


Speaking of fiery tales, remember Cinder’s iconic transformation from Fairytale Island? Poptropica shared a clip of the punk rock princess on TikTok a couple months ago, and now, it’s available as a YouTube short:


Wrapping up this post is a series of posts shared on Poptropica’s Instagram stories, including an answer box to share about your Halloween ‘fit, as well as tons of fan art. Enjoy!

Remember: Two more weeks until the PHB’s Halloween Costume Contest closes on Friday, October 29! Get your grim grooves and whimsical whooshes going strong, and see you in the next one! πŸ‘»πŸŽƒ

Red October sky from the Baron on high πŸšβ˜οΈ

Hey Poptropicans, Red October is upon us! πŸ’₯🌚🩸

The Baron has made her landing on Home Island and brought her blood red aura everywhere. Let’s get off that dusty rock and go see what’s new!

As promised, the six winning designs from September’s costume contest have arrived at the Baron’s pop-up shop. Be sure to snag your Heart Witch, Pumpkin Punk, Will-O’-Wisp, Zombie Nerd, Midnight Kitten, and Phantom costumes for free, and while you’re here, consider the smiling and/or grimacing pumpkins (50 credits each) and Baby Jersey Devil plushie (300 credits) for your clubhouse. πŸŽƒπŸŽƒ

The Creators must be watching us, since Gentle Dolphin threw out the idea of a Jersey Devil plushie here just last week. But hey, while we’re punkin’ around, we’re still thrilled to see cool stuff in the game β€” whether it’s a clubhouse item or winning costume creation!

By the way, the Baron’s Red October makeover extends throughout Home Island! We know the Creators can’t resist polishing the dust off this rock from time to time, but we have to admit this fresh crimson paint is quite a mood. Even Amelia got in on the Halloween spirit with a unicorn headband that wasn’t there yesterday! πŸ¦„πŸŽƒ

The Red Baron and Red October atmosphere will be here all month. Enjoy the sinister spirit and playground aboard the Baron’s vessel!


The spooky vibes continue in Poptropica’s latest Instagram stories. In addition to Halloween-inspired fan art, Poptropica also promoted their Red October event and World Teacher’s Day. Are there teachers following Poptropica on Instagram? Now that may be a little eerie…

Anyway, that’s a wrap on this update. Happy (or should we say melancholic?) Red October! Pop on by Home Island and enjoy the Halloween vibes and costumes all through the month.

Keep popping on, Poptropicans! πŸ‘»

Baron’s back with birthday bounty, and fans kick off Poptropica Month πŸ°

Hey Poptropicans! The Baron’s back, and so is Pop Month! With Poptropica turning 14, let’s pop into the September celebrations!

The much-hyped return of the Red Baron’s airship is finally here, and inside this sky pirate’s temporary Home Island landing, you’ll find the costume contest winner, the Shooting Star Hero, freely up for grabs. The arrow really does shoot a star! πŸ’«πŸΉ

Beside this outstanding otherworldly outfit, you’ll also find a call to the next costume design contest, which is already underway! This time, there’s a twist: this “Red October” contest will have 6 winners chosen to be made into the game for the Red Baron’s next pop-up. Check out the Creators’ Blog for more details Β»

Also on the shop floor, you’ll find various other goodies for sale: the Old Cheese (50 credits), Elf Queen costume (50), Hero Fountain (150), Bit-Pig (50), Bit-Cake (50), and even a free Big Cake costume! 🍰

The total bill if you’re grabbing everything is only 350 credits, which is much lower than previous Baron visits and can easily be settled with the 1,000-credit reward from Amelia’s mini quest. Seems like our Pop Petitions have paid off once again!


In other news, September means it’s Poptropica Month! Pop Month, if you haven’t already caught onto the hype, is a month-long fan-run event of sharing Poptropica-themed videos to a common playlist hosted by the Dimension Bros on YouTube. Check the deets:

Besides YouTube, you can also participate on Instagram by tagging @dimension_bros. The PHB’s Gentle Dolphin has already come up with a fun little reel showing off colorful Pop outfits with a jam! 🎨πŸŽ₯

For more Pop Month ideas and inspiration, or just ways to show support even without making your own clips, check out the Dimension Bros’ PHB guest post on video-making tips and keep up with the Pop Month 2021 playlist here.

While this event isn’t sponsored by the PHB, we encourage all Poptropicans to have fun with it and celebrate Poptropica’s legacy. Happy birthday, Poptropica, and here’s to a poppin’ month! πŸ₯‚

Airship arrives with Ice Cream Cat costume & other collectibles

Hey Poptropicans! Are you ready to board the Baron’s boat? Because the Red Baron’s airship has returned to Home Island! But act now since the ship is only here until Friday, August 6th.

Like last time, enter the ship to find a common room on the flight deck, the Cabin of Curiosities shop to the left, and the mini-game to earn credits to the right. Everything is expectedly looking the same! But let’s check out the Cabin of Curiosities to see what’s new.

As promised, July’s costume contest winner is featured inside! Ice Cream Cat made by Silver Flame is available for free. How purr-fect! 🍦🐈

Aside from this sweet new get-up, there are a few other new goodies to scream for too. To the right, we have Gretchen Grimlock gear (50 credits), Retro Robot regalia (50 credits), a statue (600 credits), a Papa Pete’s Pizza box (50 credits), a floating aquarium set up (800 credits), and a suitcase/trunk (50 credits). Plus, that gold skull above the entrance is still available.

Both of those costumes are quite familiar to long-time players, huh? If you earned an extra 5000 credits this past week by logging in every day, you should be able to go on a fun spending spree today.

Again, Baron mind that the ship is only here until Friday, August 6th. That’s less than 5 days away! After that, we’ll have a bit of time to wait for its next docking and the next costume contest winner to be announced.

More stuff awaits in Adventure Outfitters (including that ribbeting Frog Bucket Hat being modeled in the pics above), so stay tuned for our update on that soon! β˜€οΈπŸΈΒ 

Until next time, it’s time to spend those credits! Go! Go! Go! πŸ€‘
