Monster Carnival Island was and is an Island that was supposed to be released in 2008, but strangely disappeared from the map while it said "COMING SOON!". In it's place became 24 Carrot Island. But 5 years later, in February 2014, the island will come back with all new features. It is also the 38th island released on Poptropica.
|“||In the dead of night, a caravan rumbles into town. The traveling carnival has returned! But this is no day at the park. Behind the lights and the laughter, the carnival harbors a dark secret. Buy a ticket if you dare, but beware — once you enter, you may never be able to escape the Monster Carnival!||”|
Original 2008 Island
The island was supposed to be released in 2008. The island ws even pictured on the map,with the words "COMING SOON!". However,for an unknown reason,it was scrapped. Monster costumes were also accidentally leaked into the Poptropica Store but were quickly removed upon discovery.
A few years after, the Creators released a sneak peek of a concept art of what appeared to be a circus and stated that it was for an unfinished island which was presumed to be Monster Carnival Island. This shows that Monster Carnival Island was cancelled because it wasn't finished.
Later still on Febuary 3rd, 2014, Captain Crawfish officially announced on the Creator's Blog that Monster Carnival wasn't released because it was announced too early not being finished back in 2008 and nobody was able to finish it, having other projects to work on. The name kept popping up in the discussions for new Islands every year, and everyone agreed that it should be revived and sure enough, it was.
Beliefs of Return
Multiple times it has thought to be returning. Sneak peeks of monster-related islands were posted on Daily Pop but they turned out to be sneak peeks for Cryptids Island and Zomberry Island. When a sneak peek of what seemed to be a carnival appeared on Daily Pop, some people assumed that it was for Monster Carnival Island. However, it was actually for the Carnival Costumes store on Night Watch Island. There are four monster costumes in the store that resemble the leaked costumes. On the Creator's blog, there was a post by Captain Crawfish that showed nots for a "Haunted Amusement Park Island",supposedly an early name for Monster Carnival Island. At the end of the blog post, Captain Crawfish quotes: "You never know, I guess.", hinting that it could be returning. A paper in the trash can of Mocktropica Island had the words "Monster Carnival NOPE" on it.
Return of Monster Carnival Island
On the Poptropica Creators' Blog, Captain Crawfish announced that Monster Carnival Island will come back in February 2014, with all new features and member only items to be released in the future, The teaser trailer only shows a picture of a mysterious ringmaster-like Poptropican with a black skull mask and red eyes above.
First, turn left and enter the Pharmacy. When you enter the building, turn right and you'll find the Pharmasist, he will ask you to fetch an order for him: sodium chloride (Table salt). Go upstairs and head over to the lab, collect the following: Sucrose, Sodium thiopental and sodium chloride, you'll find them on the shel. Click on shelved items to find out what they are. When you have done the above, go to the mixing machine. You will find yellow and blue molecules floating around, spray them to seperate them and combine the yellow with the yellow and vice versa. After that, bring the soldium chloride(there's that name again,) to the counter and that man will thank you.
Then head out of that pharmacy and head on over to the plot core of the whole island.Yes!It is the carnival.However,a carnie apprentice asks for your help because the carnival isn't ready and it's getting late.Now ask around the carnival.You'll have to ask the guy at the floating ducks stall,who needs a hose to fill up his pool,the lady at the fried dough stand...........oh that would be so good right now.............WHOA! I'm awake! I'm awake! Anyway the lady will give you the recipe for some SUGAAAAAAAR!!! You'll also have to talk to the guy at the out-of-control ferris wheel.Round and round and round it goes,when does it stop?When you get the lever he asked you fo.Or when the world ends in 5.5 billion years.Whichever comes first.
Head into the DARK DARK WOODS. Walk past the clown head *shivers* and lurk around for a bit.Doesn't matter.You'll always find yourself back at the same place.When you get out of there,you'll find a lever on the floor next to the clown head.Give it to the ferris wheel guy and you'll have solved that problem! Yay!
Now head on over to the pharmacy again. Do what you did just now except follow the recipe for sucrose on the poster.WE GONNA MAKE OURSELVES SOME SUGAAAAAAAR!!! Then head to Honest Gabe's Auto Repair and not-Gabe will run on over to you. Tell her you need a radiator hose and then grab the hose off the top shelf. Well,now you got a new hose! Or should I say......NEWELL hose! GET IT?!? Gabe Newell? It's......it's a........I'll shut up.
Get the hose over to the duck man (*cough*weirdo*cough*) and fill up his pool. Then give the SUGAAAAAAAR to the fried dough lady. In return for the SUGAAAAAAAR she's gonna give you fried dough-straight from the oven and chock-full of SUGAAAAAAAR!!!
The carnie apprentice will run on over to you and tell you that the carnival is ready to open! YES!!! And then,all your hard work helping the carnies suddenly goes to waste............when the demo period ends.
Now this is time to for the member part!
Later... Go to the boy near the Pop The Balloon! mini game and then go up, and go to the Guess the Weight Game. He'll tell that you're weight is 115, and it is correct. We need to find a way to trick him!
Go to Dr. Dan's Lab and then tell him you need something small, but REALLY heavy. Now that you found it, go to the other place and sharpen the Blunted Dart and you will get Sharpened Dart. Now go back and pop any of the balloon, to get the Souvenir Cup. Then go to the Guess the Weight Game, and you will be a higher weight. and you get the Super Bouncy Ball. Go pass and then go to the Test Your Strength Game. And you will go to the Infant Level. There must be a way to go to the Super Hero Level... SUPER BOUNCY BALL!!! Use it and you'll knock the bell off. Now go to the Ferris Wheel, and you'll see that boy with his sister stuck in it. Go to the Fried Dough Stand and tell her you need Oil. If you come back, they will be in a different spot. Use the oil, and they will go to the Love Ride. Go to the Haunted Lab, make through your way and get the Fly Mask. There's something missing... We'll find out later. Go to the Ove Ride, and scare them. Now those Carnies mysteriously disappeared in the woods. What happened? Go to the woods, and go to the places with a ball. It will not be an infinite loop. When you get there, you'll see. They will turn into monsters!
