Wimpy Wonderland Island Guide


The kids in town are enjoying a snow day – all except for Greg Heffley, whose little brother Manny has gone missing! It’s up to you to find Manny, but before you do, you’ll have to contend with surly teenagers, crabby senior citizens, and those rotten Whirley Street kids. Join Greg, Rowley, Rodrick, and the rest of the Wimpy Kid characters for a snow-capped adventure you’ll never forget!

Written Walkthrough

Walkthrough by Fearless Cheetah
Special thanks to: Slanted Fish & Super Thunder

It all started with a troublesome toddler…

Get off the blimp, and the first person you see will be Greg Heffley. Talk to him, and he will tell you that his little brother Manny, who he was supposed to be babysitting while his mom was at work, has somehow escaped from their house. Follow Greg back to his house to look for clues.

Inside, go up to the parents’ bedroom and pick up the Address Book. Grandpa Heffley’s address at 33C Leisure Towers is underlined – you’ll need that info for later.


You can also pick up a Page from Greg’s Journal from the floor of his bedroom.


Go up to Manny’s room and run to the left, where a window has been left open. Exit out that window, and follow the trail of Manny’s footprints until you get to Greg’s friend Rowley, who will tell you that his rumble bike has been stolen. Then, you will see Manny coasting down the hill on the bike.


Chase after him, and you will find the Rumble Bike abandoned by the Fast Mart on Main Street. You can pick it up if you want to – you don’t need it to complete the island, but it’s fun to ride around on.

wimpywonderland8Next, chase Manny, who is standing right next to the rumble bike, up a tree. He will jump off the tree and get away.

Go right until you reach the school. The school is closed for a snow day, but you will see Manny jump into a window and get inside. However, you will not be able to jump into that window because it is too high. So, you need to go down near the entrance of the school and find the little trash can that you can push around.

Push the trash can onto the left end of the seesaw. Then, climb up as high as you can on the tree to the right. You’ll also find a Scrap of Paper here with some numbers on it.


Jump down and aim your landing to be on the right seat of the seesaw. If you were successful, this will propel the trash can onto the second floor of the school building. Push it across, and use it to help you reach and enter the left window Manny jumped into.


Inside the school building, chase Manny out the door. Then, find Greg’s locker – it’s the only clickable one, located under the second “i” of the “School Spirit” banner, and it’s whiter than the rest. Remember the scrap of paper with numbers? That’s the combination code: 9-37-15. Note that you need to turn the lock in the direction of the arrow.

When you’ve opened the locker, you’ll find a Twisted Wizard Game Guide.


Now, go right to the Leisure Towers. Since no one under 21 is allowed inside, you will have to climb up the building, dodging angry old people and the objects they throw at you.

Every ten floors there’ll be a landing, so you won’t have to completely start over if you fall when you’re really high up. Watch for when the windows above start to open, and jump on one that isn’t opening. When you reach the top, enter apartment 33C – that’s the one Greg’s grandpa lives in.


Gramps & the Watercress Salad

Gramps will tell you that he has seen Manny, and offer to discuss it over lunch. To choke down Grandpa’s nauseating watercress salad, rapidly click with your mouse button as fast as you can (have patience, you’ll get it).


Once you manage that, he will tell you that he has seen Manny on the security cameras of his building.

You can also pass the watercress salad part by opening a new tab (Ctrl + T) and doing anything you want, then returning to the game after about two minutes.

Gramma & the Snow Shovel

Leave the Leisure Towers and go right, to Whirley Street. There will be a gang of kids chucking snowballs at you. Dodge them as best as you can and pick up the Snow Shovel that is there.

wimpywonderland19Then go allll the way left, past Greg’s house, until you reach the screen with the Laundromat. There will be a house there – it belongs to Greg’s grandma. Go inside, and she will tell you that she will help you look for Manny if you can shovel her driveway. Exit the house and use your snow shovel.

The task here is to shovel all the snow out of the way before your body temperature gets too low (indicated by the bar to the side). Click and hold the shovel to collect snow, then dump it to the right by releasing the mouse button.


When you’re done, Gramma will tell you that she will look for Manny – after she plays a game of bingo at Leisure Towers. *sigh*

One day I’ll be rich and famous, but for now…

Go back to Greg’s house, and you will find Greg (that slacker!) playing video games. Use your game guide to help him past a level he’s stuck on, then help him beat it by playing Twisted Wizard yourself. Remember to click the wizard at the start screen to enable easy mode!

For a more in-depth guide, click here for our Twisted Wizard Guide.

Twisted Wizard: click to start

Returning the game to Rowley

After you beat the game, Greg will ask you to return the Twisted Wizard Game to Rowley. Rowley, however, is stuck inside his house. He asks you to come in, and not to touch his dad’s car. If you knock on the door, though, his dad won’t let you in.

So, go over to Rowley’s dad’s car and jump on it. When Rowley’s dad comes outside to see what is wrong, hide in the bushes, and when his back is turned, sneak in through the open door.

Return the game to Rowley, and he will reward you with a Joshie Fan Club Membership Card.


He is one weird kid!

Getting Rodrick out of the way

Go back to Greg’s house, and use the card to open the laundry room door, which is jammed. Then, click on the power control panel on the wall and shut off the power in Rodrick’s room. He will leave and take his van with him.

Enter Rodrick’s room and take the Dog Dish that is lying there (it’s the orange one labeled “Sweaty”; can’t miss it).

wimpywonderland27Then go to the garage – which is now open since Rodrick’s van left – and grab the Leaf Blower.

wimpywonderland29Leave the garage (the exit is at the bottom of the screen) and go left until you see a snowman (the creepy one that says “Mrf” when you speak to it. Use your leaf blower to blow away the snow from the snowman, revealing… Fregley!

Fregley will give you a Bingo Troll doll as a thank-you gift.

wimpywonderland32 copy

And Bingo was his name-o

Now, go back to the Leisure Towers. Use your troll doll as a blotter to play a game of Bingo.

You’ll have three cards, and each one has a free space you can blot in the center! The letter/number combos will roll at the top of the screen, and as they roll, check all three cards to see if you have it. If you do, click on it to blot it! It’s possible for a combo to appear in more than one card, or not appear in any of your cards. If it rolls off the screen and you had it, it’ll be too late to blot it, so be alert!


If you don’t win, keep trying until you do, and you’ll win a Soothing Sounds: Classical Music CD.

Wiper Fluid

Go left until you see the Fast Mart. Enter and talk to the store owner, who complains about the teens hanging around outside. He says he will give you a bottle of wiper fluid if you can drive them away. Use your CD, then turn the volume all the way to the max in the music box by the entrance to shoo the teenagers away.

The store owner will thank you with a jug of No-Freez Wiper Fluid.


Now go right until you reach the school. Just past the school building, you will see a guy with a plow. He tells you that he can’t drive because his windshield wipers are frozen. Use the wiper fluid to help him extract exactly the 4 liters he needs. (Make sure you’ve picked up the dog bowl from Rodrick’s basement room earlier!)

wimpywonderland37Here are the steps:

  1. Pour the 10-liter No-Freez jug into the Sweaty dog bowl. (7-0-3)
  2. Pour the contents of the dog bowl into the middle cup. (7-3-0)
  3. Pour the contents of the No-Freez jug into the dog bowl. (4-3-3)

And… zoo-wee-mama!

The Finale

Go back to Greg’s house for the last time. He is playing video games again. Argg…. Open up the curtains next to where he’s sitting and he will get zapped by the light.

Greg tells you that Manny is probably just looking for his blanket, Tingy, and that if you find the blanket, you’ll find Manny. (Why didn’t you say so in the first place, Greg… >.<)

Now, go left until you reach the Laundromat. Manny has taken the plow and plowed the entrance, so you can go in now. Inside, you’ll find Manny and Tingy sitting by a washing machine. Yaaay! Now you, Greg, and Manny just have to get home before Greg’s parents do. You leave the Laundromat when suddenly…

The Whirley Street kids are at it again, attacking you with snowballs. You and Greg mow them over with a giant snowball (just click on it), and then sled home. Whee!

Greg’s mom is pulling into the driveway just as you arrive, and congratulates Greg on his responsibility. To reward you for your help, Greg gives you the Island Medallion and credits! Congratulations, you have completed Wimpy Wonderland Island!

  • Wimpy Wonderland Island is Poptropica’s 18th island. It was released to members on March 14, 2011 and March 17, 2011 for non-members, a much shorter wait than the usual one month. It coincided with the movie Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules, released on March 25, 2011.
  • As of July 10, 2015, the island became locked to members only, with a demo for non-members.
  • This is the first Diary of a Wimpy Kid island. Diary of a Wimpy Kid is a book series by Jeff Kinney, who is also the creator of Poptropica.
  • The book Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever was published on November 15, 2011, also with a snowy setting. Because the island is drawn in the style of the book’s illustrations, the characters are not customizable.
  • Members who logged in during March 2011 would receive a bonus Paper Boy/Paper Girl costume, which also has the ability to “Paperize” other characters.
  • Common room: Photo Gallery
  • On April 1, 2011, Twisted Wizard was added into the island. Before that, players did not have to beat Twisted Wizard for Greg.
  • The carrot from chasing Manny is not required to complete the quest, though you can put it on the snowman (Fregley) just for fun.
  • Only the items have color. Everything else is drawn in black and white.
  • None of the items in this island have descriptions.

  1. The easiest way to finish the watercress salad is to click “start” and then open a new tab and stay there for sometime. When you get back YOU WIN!

  2. Every time I click on the locker, my poptropican(Chilly Ice) says,” I don’t know the combination.” Help! Please reply ASAP. Thanks.

    Slanted Fish: Get the combination from the piece of paper on the tree near the school first.

  3. slanted fish can you please add this? If you are finding watercless salad too hard,open a new tab(CTRL+T),wait for 2 minutes,then your watercless salad part will be complete ☺

    Slanted Fish: It’s there now. 🙂

  4. You don,t have to put the carrot on fregley you have to get the leafblower out of the garage and blow away the snow;)

  5. I need help. I am up to the gramma and snow shovel part with the whirley street kids. Whenever I almost passed the building, it says splat when I didn’t get hit in the face with a snowball. This happens every time. What should I do?

    Slanted Fish: You just need to grab the snow shovel. If there’s a glitch preventing you, try contacting Poptropica.

  6. This island is hard. What do i do after I return the game to Rowley? Thanks 😀

    Slanted Fish: Just follow the guide in chronological order and you’ll be fine!

  7. i don’t know what to do to see the grandpa it keeps saying that it dosnt know anyone there when i climb the building

  8. idk why you guys say this is hard , it couldnt be if your cheating . And most of the game is easy , there are just a few spots that are hard but it even gives you instructions so you should at least have a slight chance

  9. what cd
    slanted fish?
    and how do you get the teens away

    Slanted Fish: You’ll get a classical music CD when you win at Bingo, which you’ll need to use on the music box to get the teens to leave. 😛

  10. I am at the part where you have to jump on the car and hide behind the bush. I keep jumping on the car and then running to the bush but whenever I reach the bush and try to click it that little loading sign comes up and Rowley’s dad has to go inside for me to be able to move again. Any tips? Am I doing something wrong or is there a glitch? Thanks so much, ~Maddy

    Slanted Fish: That’s supposed to happen. After Rowley’s dad goes inside, you can then sneak into the house to return the game to Rowley.

  11. O.O When I was climbing up da building to get to Greg’s grandpa, on my first try I hopped on one side and got there very fast, and no one hit me or opened the window which I was hoppin’ on.

  12. When I left the game for 2 minutes then returned it didn’t get me past the part where you eat with grandpa.

    1. Do you know how to stop my character from saying, “I don’t know anyone that lives there.”
      When I came to Leisure towers, I tried to go up but it keeps stopping me! I’ve already blow-dried Fregly, gave back the game to Rowley, and shovel out the driveway for Greg’s grandma. I don’t think there is anything more I have to do. The only thing that is stopping me is that my character won’t go up higher to the seniors’ windows!!! Help me plzz!!!!!!!!! It’s so frustrating when you try to do everything, but it’s not helping!

      Slanted Fish: Go into the parents’ room in Greg’s house and take the Address Book. 😉

  13. Uh…guys I could use a little help here…Can anyone tell me where to play the Bingo game u see when I go to the leisure towers, there is no place there to play the bingo game so can someone tell me where exactly can u do that?
    The desperate one 😦

  14. hi, when I try to go on the old people home, its says “you don’t know anyone who lives here” or something like that. plz help

  15. theres a glitch where if I try to jump up in leisure towers it says I cant go up because I don’t know anyone. Can I have some help

  16. I try to jump up to do the elderly building thing, but it says “I don’t know anybody up there.” Am I doing something wrong?

  17. I was trying to go to Grandma’s house to shovel her driveway, but they said that I needed membership. I thought playing was free…?

    slantedfish: It was, but recently this island (and some others) became locked to members, with only a demo for non-members. 😦

  18. Yay! Completed it! Add me my username is greatpumpkinvampire and i have been playing Poptropica since 2012 (Vampire’s Curse release) I have completed 41 islands (Wimpy Wonderland latest)

  19. I think that Wimpy Wonderland has just been open for everyone again as when I was traveling on the blimp, I saw that there were no more “members only” word in front of the island anymore. The same for Wimpy Boardwalk.

  20. Hey guys, I’m done with bingo and now I’m having a new problem!
    The thing is, I took the dog dish from Rodrick’s room AND I have the wiper fluid, but I’m not able to find that man past the school building! Hey wait, should I do the watercress part for that? Btw, I skipped it. Plz help me in my dilema fishy!

  21. Listen to George Micheal’s Flawless( Go To The City) There’s a rumor that it helps with games. Its true!! I couldn’t beat the watercress salad for YYYYYEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAARRRRRRRSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!! Until I heard it and actually Beat It!!!!!

  22. OMG I FINALLY FINISHED THE TROLL GAME! After a really constipated looking face, sweat, and tears from the past frustration.

  23. Greg is going to freeze his tongue if he doesn’t close it while sledding!

  24. Wow! 2011? I feel old knowing that is when this came out! I totally remember when the other Islands were added into the game! I’ve been here for a long time, from Elementary School, and now near the end of High School! I Totally remember when other Islands were added in game, like Steamworks Island, and Cryptids Island!
    (This has nothing to do with this Island, but I am just amazed that this was added in 2011 and the other two were both in 2010!, now it being 2018!?!?!)

What's popping, Poptropicans?
