Written Walkthrough

Walkthrough written by Super Thunder & Brave Tomato
Special thanks to: Slanted Fish, Rainbow Dash, & Poptropica Buddies

Go to Mystery Train if you’re not already there. Then, walk over to the guy pushing hard on something. Can you believe it? It’s Thomas Edison! Talk to him. He wants you to help him with his ramp. So… do it! This is the order to make the ramp work (smallest to tallest, left to right):

mt1

And… Yay! For being so nice and helping him, you get a Train Ticket! All aboard!

mt2

So, get on the train, and you’ll get to talk to and meet lots of people, many of which are famous! However, be sure to speak to this guy. It’s George Ferris, inventor of the Ferris wheel.

mt3

Oh no! The wheel isn’t working! He’ll give you a Telegram message.

Now go left to meet more people. Be sure to talk to everyone! Enter Susan B. Anthony’s cabin, and she will give you a Women’s Suffrage Pamphlet.

mysterytrain1

Keep going left, and pick up the Pencil on the table in VIP Car 2.

mysterytrain2

Also, enter Mademoiselle Moreau’s cabin and she will give you a Le Monde newspaper.

mysterytrain3

Finally, go meet Mr. Edison. He got his machine ready, and wants to test it out! And then… It’s working! But disaster strikes. Because just as he leaves to get the reporter… The train curves, and goes into a tunnel. And momentarily, the light is gone! And when th light is back, the machine is stolen. Then Mr. Edison comes back…

mt4

And so… you’re on the case. Talk to the New York Times reporter. Apparently Twain has a secret compartment. Go over to Twain’s cabin, and when you talk to Mark Twain, he gets… quite suspicious when you mention the secret compartment.

mt5

So tap around the walls, to find the different sounding wall. It’s the one that’s third from the left on the second row, and when you click it, it’ll go “THUMP!”

mt8

It turns out it was just a manuscript of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn that Twain was working on. Oops. But then, suddenly, the train stops.

Once you get out, talk to the reporter. He says that he heard someone running outside of Edison’s door! He might have left a clue…

Go ask more people around. Again, talk to everyone – you can start from the right, all the way, and work your way to the back of the train. Susan B. Anthony says that Tesla has been locked in his cabin the whole time.

mt6

Gustave Eiffel said that he heard a cabin door open and close when the train went into the tunnel that could’ve been Tesla’s, and Erik Weisz doesn’t think disappearing is too difficult.

Well, remember what the NY Times reporter said about hearing someone outside Edison’s door? Sure enough, when you go check, you’ll have a new clue: the floor is covered with prune juice!

mt9

After discovering the prune juice, you can start the questioning all over again. Not much information is revealed, except Edison says the prune trail seemed to lead to the coal car. Le Monde Reporter (whom I call Frenchy) says a similar thing. Now go to the dining car further left.

When you talk to the Porter, he/she (the porter is supposed to look just like you) throws the order sheet away, saying that orders are confidential, and then he/she will walk away. So open up the Porter’s Notepad that gets left behind, and using the Pencil, check for an imprint.

mysterytrain6

Apparently, Tesla ordered the prune juice. But he won’t talk to you. So go take a look at his luggage.

There are coal smudges on his trunk, and when you lean down, you get attacked by a pair of scissors. If they really wanted to get rid of you, they would have attacked with something more, uh, powerful. But this is Poptropica!

Anyway, you get the Scissors, and now you start asking again.

mysterytrain7

The Coal Man says this:

mt11

But for now, skip asking everyone. Just go straight to the Porter. And the Porter confirms that, yes, the Coal Man did get something to drink.

Now go to the luggage cart, and Frenchy will be right there. Talk to her. She says the key might be in his cabin, the key to Tesla’s trunk. But you can’t get in, so she tells you to go dress up as the Porter. So, go to the Porter’s closet, get the Porter’s Outfit, and put it on. Now go to Tesla’s room.

Once inside, he says he wants a prune juice refill. So walk to his drawers, and pick up the prune juice. Refill, refill. Then he’s got to go to the bathroom. And you’ve got to find the key!

The location of the key varies. But first, you have to click everything else. The key will be in the place you click at the last moment, just before Tesla re-enters his room. And then, when you’ve got the Luggage Key and Tesla comes back, you can leave.

mysterytrain8

Go to his trunk, and use the key. The device is in there! Frenchy will call the guards, and Tesla gets dragged away… and you go tell Edison.

tumblr_inline_mtwk0xgFPp1s8qd7u

But.. oh no! Edison plays the device, and Tesla was on the other side of the train when this thievery happened! You’ve caught the wrong person! *GASP* You’ll get the Grainy Picture.

mysterytrain10

After Tesla had been arrested, Edison says that the device was rolling and it might’ve shown an image of the real thief. However, the only person that ended up there was Tesla, just chilling in a train window… on the other side of the train. Which means…

You have to go talk to Tesla. But you can’t go through the coal car because a guard is blocking the way. Instead, you have to go ON TOP of the train! But how? Ok, go to the luggage car, climb up the luggage and go up through the trapdoor.

 

mt13

Go up. Now you’re on the top of the train. Duck whenever the red on the right side of the screen is more up, which means a tunnel is about to pass by. And jump when the red is further down, which means a sack is about to get in your way. Make your way to the right until you see a hatch. That’s the coal car, which Tesla is in, all chained up.

mt14

Talk to him for a while. He’ll say that he had left behind something important in his cabin. And then he’ll ask for something to write with. Click use on the pencil, and he’ll draw a Sketch of Tesla’s Cabin like it was before he got captured.

mysterytrain11

Exit the coal room to the right. The guard will ask what you did, and you’ll lie saying that nothing’s up. Go to Tesla’s cabin and notice that the briefcase by Tesla’s bed is open. Click on Tesla’s sketch and once the screen opens up, click use. Click on the pencil and finally click on the briefcase to make a circle around it.

tumblr_inline_mtwkm2LzlG1s8qd7u

Go back to Tesla the way you did before. Talk to him, telling him that the briefcase is open and all. He’ll start to worry, because something important is inside. And he has no idea how the case was unlocked.

mt15

Um… Tesla… Poptropicans don’t really have necks.

Moving on… exit the coal car and go into Erik Weisz’s room in VIP Car 1. Ask about the briefcase, and he’ll start acting weird. You’ll get a clue about his odd behavior.

Go to the New York Times reporter (he’s near Mark Twain’s room in VIP Car 2) and ask about Erik Weisz’s odd behavior. He’ll show you a New York Times Article with a guy who looks familiar: Erik Weisz = Harry Houdini!

tumblr_inline_mtwkz2slG51s8qd7u

Go back into Houdini’s room and move to the right to the right to pick up the Lock Pick Bag. You’ll confront Weisz for being Houdini and he’ll escape through the hatch in his room.

mt18

Follow him!  Which means… more top of the train traveling. Making sure to avoid the obstacles, go to the left until you see an opening on the red cart.

mt19

(this is where he fell through)

Once you land on that cart, you’ll automatically go through the cart into the junk room. You’ll hear a “blub blub” coming from inside those weird curtains. Use the scissors to reveal Houdini trapped in a water tank. But this is no trick: He can’t get out!

Now, you need to pick those locks, fast. Line up the things using the appropriate shaped pick and line up the line to where the color of the lock thing changes. The first one is easy because the locks are in order, but the others are all mixed up. Take your time to get it right, while still going quick.

mysterytrain4

Once you get Houdini out of there, you’ll accuse Houdini of being a thief. However, he’ll reveal that he’s trying to solve the mystery, just like you are.

 

Finally, he’ll say to talk with Tesla AGAIN and find out what he is hiding. He’ll disappear (literally) and you need to go on the roof. Again. Go all the way to the luggage room or Houdini’s room (either way it’s fine, but it’s quite a distance from here) and jump up to the hatch.

Go back to the coal room, via the train top, and talk to Tesla.  He won’t talk until you free him. Use the lock picks again and he’ll tell you what was inside the briefcase: the transformer designed to power the ferris wheel. He’ll give you a Transformer Sketch. Go back to VIP Car 2 and talk to Mark Twain in his cabin. He’ll say this:

mt22

Ok, now go to the left until you reach the Pinkerton car. You have to be swift to avoid the traps. Jump up the boxes and jump over the first gap and fall down the second gap. Move quickly to the left and exit the Pinkerton car.

mysterytrain21

You’ll end up in the last boxcar where ANOTHER famous passenger is. And who is it?

Grover Cleveland… that guy who became president twice, right? Pick the second dialogue option, and Cleveland will help you piece the clues together. When he pauses, here’s the order in which to click the pictures: prune juice, coal marks, luggage key, briefcase, transformer.

 

Once the long conversation is over, go and get to that luggage room. Fortunately, the Pinkerton guard has moved the traps out of the way for you, so you can navigate easily. Keep going until you reach the luggage room. Use the key once again and click on the white cover on the case.

mysterytrain20

So… it’s either “Frenchy” or Gustav Eiffel. Talk to Eiffel, and he’ll say that he’s French, but there’s a lady’s handkerchief in there, so it’s… *dun dun dunnn* “Frenchy”. After the talk, you will arrive at the fair. Now to get off and stop her from destroying the transformer.

mt32

So… she’s only doing this for her country’s reputation? Oh wow. She will run off and you got to go after her. Once you reach the first area, you’ll see her cry to the guards and do a pity cry emote to get them to go after you. WHAT A DRAMA QUEEN!

mt33

The guards will chase after you now. Quickly go up to the podiums and wait for the first lion to be fed. Once it’s chewing, jump on its nose. Do the same with the rest of them. You’ll land on a platform. Quickly jump onto the bouncy window awnings and avoid the flames and sharp swords being thrown around. You’ll come across a sleeping Poptropican using a snake flute, and a snake going up and down. Jump up on the snake’s cap, then go left.

You’ll accidentally interrupt a dancing show, and you’ll experience one of many Poptropica firsts… these girls twirl!

mt34

Once you get on the ledge, you’ll see Frenchy at it again… she’ll pity-cry to the guards, and she’ll even throw in the laughing emote as well.

Now, get on the totem poles. Jump from totem pole to totem pole, trying not to fall to the ground. Once you get to the fourth one, the guards will shake one of the totem poles and knock them over, causing a domino effect. Go left – now!

mt35

(notice that the weather is starting to look iffy… are we at another Poptropican first here?)

You’ll see Frenchy jump up the Ferris wheel. Follow her by climbing ropes and jumping up platforms. And it’s raining. Great. Umbrella anyone? Anyone? No? Just get back on topic? We don’t care for these Poptropica firsts? Ok.

mt36

(Hey, watch the lightning! I’m having a confrontation here!)

Once you get up to platform #13, Frenchy will push a crate to push your platform down a notch.

mt37

Jump up the roof of the platform… and swing a rope thing across. O_o Yet ANOTHER Poptropican first!

mt38

You’ll land on the other side. Climb up more ropes and jump on more ferris wheel cars. Once you reach the roof of a damaged cart, Frenchy will throw Tesla’s transformer.

mt39

Quickly jump on the rope and swing. You’ll grab the Transformer and land on the other side once again. Jump up some more carts and corner Frenchy. She’ll be startled by a lightning flash and fall… into a water tank?

mt40

mt41

Talk to George Ferris and give him the transformer. Finally, talk to Grover Cleveland and he’ll reward you with the Island Medallion and credits to spend in the Store.

Congratulations, you’ve completed Mystery Train Island! Case closed. 😀

Trivia

  • Mystery Train Island is Poptropica’s 21st island. It was set to release at 4:21pm on October 7, 2011, in honor of two things: Poptropica’s 4th birthday and 21st island. The login page featured a train chugging across the screen upon launch.
  • The John Bull locomotive (the eponymous train of this island adventure, which is named on the Train Ticket) is on its way to the Chicago World’s Fair (Columbian Exposition) of 1893, which is historically accurate.
  • Common room: Reverie Lounge
  • The famous Van Gogh painting Starry Night is seen in Eric Weisz’s cabin, hanging above his bed.
  • The train’s freight car contains elements from many different islands, as explained in the Poptropica Creators’ Blog. For example, you can see masks from Nabooti and totems from Reality TV Island.
  • Mark Twain in this island is working on his manuscript for The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, which in real life was first published 1884. However, the year of this island is 1893, so the book should have already been published.
  • The coal smudges made by the French Le Monde reporter shows five fingers, although Poptropicans generally don’t have any fingers.
  • Many of the characters you meet are famous historical figures, including Thomas Edison, Mark Twain, and Susan B. Anthony.
  • Le Monde is a real French newspaper that still exists today.
  • Mark Twain’s cabin in VIP Car 2 contains a framed picture with three portraits labeled Susy, Clara, and Jean – the names of his three daughters.
  • Nikola Tesla’s cabin in VIP Car 1 contains a Tesla coil – his own invention.
  • The thief’s luggage contains a book titled Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme by French playwright Molière.
  • There was a preview game called D.C. Diner available since August 11, 2011. It’s similar to the popular game Diner Dash, and while it is no longer available, you can read about it here. Every time you served a VIP on D.C. Diner, a prize would be added to your items: Edison Light Bulb, Mark Twain Haircut, Magician’s Hat, Eiffel Tower Hat, Tesla Coil. The latter three prizes were only available to members.

all aboard~!

    Thanks to Jennelle (Super Thunder), Brave Tomato, and Elmo Pwns for contributing to the PHB’s Mystery Train Island Guide! We hope it has been helpful to you.

  2. Rory says:

    Does anyone get this bug where you are stuck in a loop of stuff you have to do? I can’t get away from Tesla asking me if I have a pencil! HELP!!!!!!

    • Brave Tomato/ Eliza Williams the Huntress says:

      I had that problem if I exit out of Poptropica right after I finished Mystery Train. It repeats the last scene with Frenchy and the transformer!

      • matthewergc2014 says:

        when I first tried to do mystery train, i was running around using the pencil in every car. In the coal car, when i used it (and this was almost at the very begining of the island) an invisible telsa gave me the thing where you have to notice that the breifcase is open! i restarted the island. wierd, huh.

  3. cphelpbymintycocoa4 says:

    What I did to find the key was to click on EVERYTHING an right when he was about to enter, I clicked on the books. It probably varies from player to player like Max said, but for repeating a scene over and over, try clearing your cache, or save and press F5.

  4. Clytemnestra says:

    I knew that the guy was houdini…I have a book about him and houdini was his stage name and i learned that erich weizs was his given name…no bragging or nything.

  5. busystar says:

    aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

  6. Silver Sky says:

    I don’t know if anyone noticed this, and this won’t really affect the gameplay, just wanted to point this out.
    On the train in the freight car…in front of the totem things there’s this bike-looking-thing. I thought it looked familiar. It was standing on the road on Time Tangled Island, Thomas Edison’s time period (I think it was)…

  7. Poppy says:

    Thankyou alot 😉 Also, there are alot of comments about the key. It is in-fact anywhere. At the last moment, click somewhere and I promise that’s where it will be, Such a guess! 🙂 Mine was where she said, Because I clicked there. This was very detailed, So thankyou for that, And It was easy to follow 🙂 And they guys name IS Tesla, not Telsa 🙂 Thankyou for the walkthrough!!

  8. Riko L says:

    Thanks!! Couldn’t have done it without you guys!!! anyway as i was in front of “frenchy” i used my guitar, using space bar, then the lightning came ,.. SO AWESOME!!

  9. Erickaster says:

    Frenchy’s a girl. I’m a girl. Why can’t I do a pity cry? Plus, when she fell in the water tank she was like, “Help me I can’t swim!” and yet she was swimming…so I tried falling too and I just landed on the steps o_O

  10. MagicFan says:

    Erik Weisz was Houdini’s real name. He took his stage name from famous French magician Robert Houdin. Houdin was his childhood idol. Robert’s family ended up hating Houdini because he used his name, and Weisz/Houdini ended up writting books to expose Roberts secrets and to prove him to be a fake. Houdini was accutally a terrible magician, but a great escape artist.

  11. ηicøℓα / ραη∂a says:

    The key isn’t in the last place you click; it’s in the place you click when Tesla is just about to re-enter his room. Just thought you’d want to know. 😀

  12. wolfbrotheryeahh says:

    NOOO!!
    I think Poptropica’s server dies automatically at midnight like just now… it did the same thing yesterday too. 😦 I was nearly at the end of the island. Hope it autosaved close to where I was.
    (I’m in a different time zone to you all, that’s why I’m talking about crashing now, not in four hours time.)

  13. wolfbrotheryeahh says:

    And it’s funny (not haha funny) Edison says that he and Tesla are rivals, but for a while they were actually partners in their work. Then Tesla got really ambitious and decided he didn’t like the way Edison ran things, so he left and started his own electricity… (not company, but you get the idea).

  14. rainbow ponies says:

    Thanks!Did anyone try using the lock piks when she was stuck in the water tank?If you did please tell me!

    Peace+Love+Happiness+Hugs=ME!!(and rainbow ponies)

  15. rainbow ponies says:

    I knew it was here when she went to get the guards after I found the device in there I don’t remember how though!Not bragging guys!

    Peace+Love+Happines+Hugs=ME!!(and rainbow ponies)

      • Sammy says:

        Actually you can. You go ALL the way to the right, past the coal guy, until you see the captain. Talk to him and he will ask you if you want to get off the train and start a new island

  16. Serious Shadow says:

    Go to the WC room. Open the doors and stand on the toilet. Close the doors, and you drop from the ceiling. weird.

    • Slanted Fish says:

      No… the only mention of a dining car in the guide is for the prune juice, and it makes sense that prune juice is in there, not the coal car. In this part, you find the order sheet that says Tesla ordered prune juice.

      • Slanted Fish says:

        You’ll need to get to Tesla by going on top of the train car. Go to the luggage car and climb up the luggage until you can click “Go Up.” Now you’ll have to duck when a tunnel passes and jump when a sack passes. Keep going right until you see a hatch, and enter it to find Tesla. It’s all written in the guide (under the part that says “dun dun dunn”) if you need more details. 🙂

  17. akfj says:

    On the swinging rope part you can actually jump up to the platform were “Frenchy” is, if you click on her it does nothing but you can shrink her if you have the shrink ray it’s really funny.

  18. Blue Wolf says:

    If you open the bathroom doors and jump onto the toilet, when you close the doors STILL ON THE TOILET, you’ll fall from the roof. Magical toilet, anyone?

  19. Blue Lion says:

    How many people do you talk to at the beginning? Thomas Edison keeps on telling me to talk to other passengers while I am waiting.

      • Emily says:

        Yeah, thats happening to me too, l don`t know how many passengers there are! I suppose we are missing something! Although l have been to every single cart l can get to but l can`t find anymore passengers. If you do get passed it please tell me where they all are 😦

      • white blanket says:

        if you go into the cabin reserved for mark twain go to the bed and you will see him

      • hanthm44 says:

        OMG white blanket WHERE IS THIS GUY(because i`m having the same problem) ALSO THE GUY IS JUST IN A PICTURE!!!!!!!😡😡😭😭

    • Slanted Fish says:

      @hanthm44 – It sounds like the person White Blanket is referring to might be Mark Twain himself, who has a white bushy mustache. If you’re not sure who you’re missing, try watching the video walkthrough above to find every person you need to talk to.

  20. xin says:

    that was a long guide but the part where i had to find the key in telsa’s room i got the key just in time no really i did but i didn’t get to open the suitcase 😦 i already flunked realality tv show because the phone
    call for the pizza thing i did it wrong

  21. 15wongnh1 says:

    Just a bit of a LOL:
    Apparently, if you go to talk to the old millionaire in the top hat after you’ve gotten the medal, he’ll say this hilarious thing:
    ” Want to solve the mystery all over again? Open your Island Map and press Restart Island!”
    WHICH MEANS, HE KNOWS THAT HE’S IN A GAME! :O

  22. rania says:

    yeeeeeeeeeeees now it worked i needed to do something again and it worked. now i have the medaillon !!! yaaaaaaay !

  23. jjhjjhjjh says:

    i REALLY REALLY wish that 1. you could ride on the ferris wheele while it was running 2. i wish that it (including the other islands) gave 100 credits instead of 50. D:

    • Slanted Fish says:

      Check everything in the walkthrough to make sure you’ve done all the steps. To get past the Pinkerton security guard, you’ll need to go to the luggage car and climb up through the open trapdoor on the ceiling to go on top of the train.

      • Emily says:

        I am at the luggage car and l found the “trapdoor” but it says: http://prntscr.com/2aa9h8

        Please help me! I`m so stuck 😦

        Slanted Fish: You’re probably missing a step in the questline. Read the whole guide in order and find out what you’re missing.

  24. Jackson says:

    I ❤ this site 🙂 it is so helpful and i hope that they will never stop being so very generous and giving us all this help. Long live Poptropica! Tell me if you agree!

  25. Elizabeth says:

    YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  26. rapidashrocks524 says:

    *GASP* I’m just starting this island, and I noticed that Erik Weisz has a trap door on his compartment’s ceiling!

  27. Elsa says:

    which reporter? Frenchy or the ny times? the one to ask about the prune juice – thingy ( i already finished this island but i restarted it lol)

  28. Grey Claw says:

    Omg this island is the best. im like writing notes and such and being on dectivety (sp?) also I might just write a story detaling the whole island and maybe posting it on here. Probably wont be for a while though.

  29. barefoot runner says:

    its funny how my lil sis figured out who it was before I went on this help blog!!! This guide is awesome!!! 🙂

  30. Friendly Cloud says:

    I was SOOO UNLUCKY
    I finished almost all islands on my old account but I forgot my password and I also didn’t type the password on my password records my bad :/

  31. Friendly Cloud says:

    P.S Slanted Fish could you make me an authoress I am a fan of yours please I always want to start blogging at Poptropica I am a blogger but the game I blog is closing in just 3 days 😦 It’s Space Heroes Universe please I want to reset my blogging career

    Slanted Fish: See the first Q&A on our FAQ page. 😛

  32. GirlyACE8 says:

    How do you get out of mystery train island after you get to the fair? there’s no way on the train and there’s no blimp! Oh, no!

  33. maira says:

    i have a glitch after i talked to grover cleveland he said to open the luggage but the key is not in my inventory

  34. Friendly Comet says:

    *dreamy sigh* I LOVE HISTORY!!! Sorry for the all-caps, but I just love history… and getting to meet Susan B. Anthony?

  35. djscratchstep says:

    I’m overviewing the whole thing before I work on the island. Different-colored font, clues, sounds a whole lot like a Phoenix Wright game. (Speaking of which, I’m playing PW:AA:T&T (Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Trials and Tribulations) currently. Good thing I’m playing this island, I need to step my justice-seeking game up!)

  36. Amelia says:

    I found a really funny glitch! Go into the room that says WC on top of it, open the toilet door, and jump on top of the toilet, then close the toilet doors. Your poptropican will randomly fall out of the sky!

  37. Jemima says:

    whats up the guy I help doesn’t finish his machine ever guys that’s not a LOL its a BAB ( ball and by ) Help me guys Yo!

  38. megg95 says:

    I’m chasing after the journalist once the train has stopped and when I restarted the part where the guards are chasing me I can’t do it. When the area loads I have already been caught and it tells me to try again. Help?!

  39. pleaselovemepadre says:

    soo after you talk to porter about coal guy “frenchie” isnt in the luggage place soo like what do i do

  40. Some Guy says:

    I just finished the island AGAIN (love it to death),and I found out there are two instances where you cannot and can lose.

    1.The first is when Tesla uses the bathroom. I actually stayed waiting for him to come back,but it turns out he’ll wait indefinitely outside his room till you pick a random spot,where the key will now be.

    2.The second is in the confrontation with the culprit on the wheel. They throw down the transformer,and you’re supposed to do a Tarzan and swing fast enough to catch it. However,if you’re too slow,it WILL fall to the ground and break.

    Interestingly enough,on my second try at the latter,I actually forgot to click on the rope and fell down. I sighed in despair,yet again,knowing that I had to replay the segment again-

    UNTIL I REALISED THAT I ACTUALLY FELL RIGHT INTO THE TRANSFORMER AND CAUGHT IT

    Then I landed on the ground,unscathed because I’m a Poptropican. Then I climbed up ALL THE WAY BACK,where the culprit was still waiting for me. Then the scripted sequence occurred,yadda yadda yadda. But that glorious moment when I caught the transformer while falling down to my inevitable survival was worth everything.

    I love Mystery Train.

  41. Insanebow says:

    Thank you SO much for making these walkthroughs. They are truly amazing. I completed my 30th island because of the PHB. I’m a huge fan and I’d love to see more from you.

    Played this island a few days ago, after a million years of not playing Poptropica. It’s way more fun than I remember it! So good. Now, to complete more islands!

    I ❤ this island so much! I've played it about 50 times! It is so well thought out and keeps you hanging till the very end! Definitely my favorite Poptropica island!

    Whoa this is amazing! I think there are literary and movie references 😉

    I’m usually just wearing a shirt and a skirt, but today I need to glam up, luckily I have that old blue ballgown thing that will suit perfectly 🙂

What's popping, Poptropicans?
