The Mystery Revisited

Not everybody knows it by name, but a lot of long-time players know it very well. It’s a something.

It’s a forgotten something. It’s a wonderful something. It’s a curious something. It’s a spooky something. It’s a festive something. It’s a mysterious something. It’s a whimsical something. It’s an amusing something. It’s a monsterous something.

It’s the carnival. Of monsters. Monster Carnival. Yup. A ringmaster to lead them all in a circus. It would’ve been dazzling! It would’ve been wonderous! It would’ve been all this…

… if it wasn’t taken off the map. (Okay, I’ll stop talking like a ringleader now.)

Monster Carnival had always been one of the greatest mysteries in Poptropica. It was an island that was put on the map back when Time Tangled (back then called Time Twisted) Island had a coming soon sign. I heard old tales of this mysterious island, although I never was a witness to the events. One day, Monster Carnival mysteriously vanished from the map, replaced by 24 Carrot Island. If you want to read more about this mystery, check out the PHB’s Mystery of Monster Carnival page!

However, Captain Crawfish made a curious post today about some old notes he found in his notebook:

One from the archives 

Digging through my desk today, I found an old notebook. Inside I saw some long-forgotten ideas for a Poptropica Island.

This is probably from late 2007 or 2008, right after Poptropica got started. As we developed it a little more, the “Haunted Amusement Park” took on a slightly different form (and name), but it didn’t end up becoming a real Island.

You never know, I guess.

CAPTAIN CRAWFISH

The Creators seem to be recognizing that us Poptropica fans are curious about this never-released island, and now we know that the original title of this island, before Monster Carnival, was Haunted Amusement Park.

Also, there’s some interesting notes on here- the column on the left talks about some of the things that would’ve been in the island (both circus and amusement park related), and the right side seems to talk about other things, information.

“Ringmaster has cursed/enslaved zombie carnival workers.”

Is that a good or bad thing? To me, that doesn’t sound very good. 😐

“Scare him into a cage? Make him eat cotton candy?”

“Horror-themed park infiltrated by real zombies.”

Wait… so Monster Carnival might have not started out as real monster-infiltrated? 😐

“The ringmaster has lost prized possession and is withdrawn, moody. Prized possession is bullhorn.”

Wow. This is some pretty good information that the Creators slipped to us. And Captain Crawfish’s last words sound a little strange to me:

You never know, I guess.

That sounds… like… could it be? Could the Creators be taking a closer look at this? Could they have realized our true curiosity of Monster Carnival? Could, if even possible, it be that they might be planning to go back to it?

We’ll never know- until we know for sure.

BT out!

UFO Meets Castle! *cue dramatic music*, Monster Island?

The Poptropica Creators’ Blog presents yet another sneak peek! In this sneak peek, we see the epic clash of… a UFO and a castle. What island is this picture depicting? No clue. Could it be… ALIEN ISLAND?

Perhaps this sneak peek is also of the same island? The image name is called “mystery_island”. Could the island be named Mystery Island (if any of you play Neopets, that might strike you a hearty chuckle)?  It couldn’t be Reality TV Island… right? I’m pretty sure they’re also finishing up with Nabooti and Big Nate so… huh. Ah, well. We’ll find out someday! =) Comment what you think this island is!

 

 Monster Carnival Island?

In other news. Codien has uncovered some very rare pictures that Smockers would love to have. :mrgreen:

Does this have a connection to either of the Mechanical Jungle or the UFO mysteries? …DUH DOH DAH
