Boredom Busters

Boredom Busters

There are so many fun things to do on Poptropica – you probably just haven’t tried them all yet! See how many items on this list of 101 boredom-busting Poptropica activities you can check off – great for when you’ve got nothing else to do while you await the next island’s release.

  1. Jump on every windowsill at Main Street, Time Tangled Island. See how many you can jump on without falling off. (Note: If this is too challenging for you, try the windowsills on Poptropica Towers, Early Poptropica Island. It might be easier.)
  2. Make the crab on Main Street, Time Tangled Island, burst by clicking on it over and over again, as fast as you can.
  3. Keep trying to chat with the same player in a multiplayer room until they leave.
  4. Use the randomizing glitch (Ctrl + Shift + R) to change your outfit. Remember, it’s random! (Note: Do not try this if you do not wish to lose your current outfit.)
  5. Swing on the wires at Main Street, Time Tangled Island. When you get bored with that, try it with the clothes lines on Poptropica Towers, Early Poptropica Island.
  6. Knock down all the flowerpots on the windowsills of Poptropica Towers, Early Poptropica Island. You can also go to Down Town, Super Power Island and knock down the statues on the gray-stoned skyscraper.
  7. Get an extra Hot Dog for your inventory from the hot dog seller at City Park, Super Power Island after you complete the Super Power Island Quest.
  8. Get an extra bottle of Carbonated Coconut Milk for your inventory from the guy outside of the Coconut Cafe at Main Street, Shark Tooth Island after you complete the Shark Tooth Island Quest.
  9. Visit the bathrooms of both genders in Super Power’s City Park (boy/girl) by using a boy Poptropica account and a girl one. (Note: There is not much of a difference between the two rooms. Also, do not try this if you do not wish to lose your current outfit.)
  10. Read all the comic strips in the Klassic Komix store on Main Street, Big Nate Island. (If you want to read more, there’s plenty on under the ‘Big Nate’ section.)
  11. Read the Roald Dahl book excerpts in the Wonka Factory Outlet on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Island, Main Street. There’s even some unpublished content in there you can check out!
  12. Just type/write a journal, and pretend that your character is an explorer that is searching for discoveries. Good islands to go to are Nabooti, Astro-Knights, and Shark Tooth. Have fun!
  13. Go inside the Klassic Komix store on Main Street, Big Nate Island. Jump down the stairs and walk left, and you’ll see a chalkboard titled Oodles of Doodles. Hold down your mouse and trace anywhere on it, and have fun drawing a cool picture!
  14. Go inside the School Picture Guy’s building on Main Street, Big Nate Island. Walk right and hop onto the stool.

  18. Raise your battle ranking by playing games in multiplayer rooms. Win as many games as possible, so you can improve your 5-star rank even more. (Tip: You can see how many times you have won/lost a game by going to your games inventory.)

  22. Visit Big Zeke at the Safari, Nabooti Island and take some photos of different animals with your camera! Take a look at our Nabooti Guide for further information about obtaining a camera.
  23. Complete all of the island quests, and if you’ve already done that, restart an island by going to your Map and replay it! (See our Island Help guides for tips and walkthroughs.)
  24. Read The Mystical Weapons of Arturus, which is one of the books you should find in the Astro-Knights Island Castle Library. Because this book happens to be rather damaged, it will be more of a challenge to read!

  1. i know what kind of thing you can also do in ‘ 101 things to do in poptropica with boredum busters ‘! it will make it 102! so go to super power island then go on to the roof of the dailly paper go on the bench where it takes you to the top and see how many times you can take it for a ride without getting sick of hieghts and not moving and what will make even more is that riding the toy rides and doing everything else in night watch island will do so.

  2. These boredom busters are the best! It’s fun as I completed almost every island in poptropica! ^_^

      1. I don’t remember as it was a long time ago, but maybe I was not sleepy or maybe the time shows according to your place 😉

  3. I have some Boredom Busters! 😀
    RTV :
    1) Try to doodle on the Application for entering to the RTV show, you could doodle hearts, stars, lighting bolts or even scribble the adress! Write funny messages on the reasons why you want to enter, either way, you’ll still get selected, good luck making Bucky Lucas a mustache!
    2)Try playing the show over and over again and set a goal to be and all-time winner.
    3)Go to the tv store and play with very tv, from the smallest to the largest screen.
    4)Whenever you drop on the island, you drop on a trash can, you must avoid dropping in it, if you do, simply go back up the blimp and return and keep trying not to land or even TOUCH the trash! Good luck! 😀
    5)Go to Mike’s market and play around with the trolleys– you can seperate ’em, push ’em ,ride ’em or even shove them on the mean cashier’s face XD
    6)Pretend that you are doing ACTUAL shopping at Mike’s and pretend that you are adding things to your trolley.
    7)Go to the Motel Office and try squishing some roaches, gross, yet fun.
    8)Go up to the helicopter and challenge yourself at reaching the edge of the blades, impossible, but you can jump, but that can put you off.
    9) Try bouncing from the billiards roof, to the stretchy wire and try getting on the helicopter seat, it’s frustrating, but fun.
    10)Once you fall in the trash can, activate the flies follower from the Classic Followers and pretend that they are swarming around you and run as FAST as you can to avoid them, once the flies touch you, consider yourself being OUT!
    11) Play don’t touch the ground, but you can’t jump on the trash can or even jumping on roofs of building (Billiards roof is fine).
    12) If you haven’t already completed the island, call Papa Pete’s pizza and try giving fake adresses rather than the ACTUAL ones, the answers are quite hilarious 🙂
    Soo that’s all I got 🙂

    1. Oh and 2nd boredom buster has a typo it’s AN not AND.
      2)Try playing the show over and over again and set a goal to be AN all-time winner.

  4. Fun game:

    1) Obtain an outfit you really shouldn’t have (using that one glitch, of course).
    2) Find a crowded multiplayer room.
    3) Wait for someone to click on you.
    4) Run.

  5. One time I randomly entered the Soda Pop Shop common room in Early Poptropica, and I don’t even know how many happy emotions I saw (probably directed at my awesomeness.)

  6. I have a Boredom Buster- Jump off of the platform with the spyglass on Skullduggery and try to land in your blimp (Don’t worry, you won’t go anywhere.) +1 point if you land in your blimp, 0 points if you land on your boat, and -1 point if you land in the water. My current points: 1.
    P.S. I’m not trying to spam but nobody has replied or posted a comment under my previous one.

    1. Another Boredom Buster…. sort of.
      Step 1: Go to Nabooti Island.
      Step 2: Go to the Diamond Mines on Nabooti Island.
      Step 3: Get underground.
      Step 4: Turn off the electric switch.
      Step 5: Move the oil barrel.
      Step 6: Turn the electric switch on.
      Step 7: Ka-boom!
      Here’s another-
      Ride the carts down the ramps at the diamond mines

    2. Here are some fun ones-
      -Make a costume for every holiday. (Halloween, Easter, Christmas, etc.)
      -Make a bunch of crazy photos at the Photo Booth.
      -Get a superhero costume and make yourself a cool name. Try to see how many non-branded names you can think of. (Branded names are names like Superman, Wonder Woman, etc.)
      -Go on a SUI and jump on an awning until you fall off. Time yourself and see how long you can stay on until the sound drives you (or your parents) nuts.
      -Play tag with the seagulls on the map.
      That’s all I’ve got.

  7. Since Escape from Pelican Rock is coming out for everyone tomorrow, I have a boredom buster about it! Try to escape the prison in the least amount of days possible!

  8. +1 play with the things in the mall in twin palms mall such as the hat maker,the cover maker,the matching game( by clicking the vintage trading cards in the basecard shop), etc.

What's popping, Poptropicans?
