Top 10 Best Poptropica Islands

Poptropica is an online virtual world that is played by over 75 million people. What do you think the best islands are on this popular game?
The Top Ten
1 Reality TV

I agree with everyone who commented about the island. It's an awesome island, and I like the way everybody had to participate in it, even villains were on the show. It also had little fun activities you could do with your Poptropican. Some were easy, some were hard. It's challenging, and you have to try a lot of times, but it's still quite good fun! And the great thing is, you can keep playing the seasons of the show!

The only negative thing I find on every island is when you go left or right, there are usually all these ads in between (though none on Mystery Train Island), and it wastes a lot of time.

2 Mythology

Mythology Island is, in my opinion, one of the very best islands they have on Poptropica! The story is so detailed, and it is easy to jump into. I admit, it IS challenging, but that makes you feel like you've actually accomplished something in the end. If anyone hasn't tried Mythology Island yet, I highly suggest you should play it, because it is definitely not a time-waster.

As a player who has completed all the islands and has been with Poptropica since Shark Tooth Island, I can for sure say that this is BY FAR my favorite island! It's a bit challenging but really, really entertaining, and the storyline is great. I could play this island over and over again! Great job Poptropica, I'm very impressed!

3 Counterfeit

Counterfeit Island is one of my favorite islands! You get to learn and figure out if a painting is the real one or counterfeit by using chemicals and magnifying glasses. You actually travel to early Poptropica to meet someone so it can be confidential. You have to think logically and really feel like you're actually in the game as you find the heart-pounding clues. So, if you haven't played this yet, I think you should. Try doing it with a tutorial or walkthrough because, I gotta say, it's worth it.

4 Time Tangled

Time Tangled Island is by far my favorite! The futuristic world at the end is so cool, and it's so fun to go to different time periods. Also, it teaches you a lot about early world history, which sounds boring, but the island makes it really interesting! The whole thing is a lot of fun and has a great storyline.

I loved Time Tangled Island! It was very well thought out and very much fun to play. This island required thought and knowledge of historical events. Speaking from the point of view of an older student, this island was intelligently crafted.

5 Spy

Usually, I would say Mythology was the best island, but this one was definitely a winner. I used to be scared of this island because I thought I'd be bald forever, but that didn't happen at all. The lasers and the robots were challenging, and I have to admit: it was hilarious when Director D ripped off his toupee only to reveal a bald head. Plus, all the cool gadgets are fun to use, even if I'm terrible at using the grappling hook bowtie. And like the last person said, I really felt like accomplishing something when I finished.

6 Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

I got really excited when I saw this one! It's exactly like the movie. It's really cool how you get a sixth ticket, and it's quite funny when Charlie says, 'I thought they'd tear me up like a chocolate wrapper!'

I loved this island and hope it gets to the top soon.

I really liked this island. It is just like the movie. It's very fun and interesting. Not necessarily my favorite island, but definitely one of the best.

I love all of Roald Dahl's works of art, but this island made me love them even more. I must have played this island four times in a row and memorized the paths to each room! It never got boring, and I still love it to this day. Too bad it's for members only now.

7 Cryptids

Cryptids is such a fun island to play! I love how they incorporate so many different animal myths. I also love how you get to travel around to several different places to capture each and every mythical animal. It is challenging, but it makes you feel like you've actually accomplished something. I highly suggest those of you who haven't completed Cryptids to try it, it is very entertaining and fun!

Cryptids is so fun! Yes, Mythology is entertaining, but the boss fight is so hard! I really like the islands that have an equally challenging story plot too. And I kind of suck at boss fights, so easy ones are great! I really love this island mainly because of all the different scenarios you have to get through.

8 S.O.S.

This was the first island I did, and I loved it! It was fun doing all of the little games to rescue the people and the problem-solving too. I really enjoyed it. More people should play it!

This island was not bad. Tricky but interesting. You get to save all the passengers and have fun along the way.

That means this island is good for a first island, so this should be the island that everybody does.

9 Ghost Story

Best island EVER! I was so caught up in the plot! When Fiona's story began to be revealed, I almost cried. This island has the best storyline by far and was a pleasure to play. When the voice from the telescope came, I jumped! I was not expecting any actual audio from an island that old.

I was holding off from this island for a while because I'm not into things that are scary. Surprisingly enough, this island did an excellent job of tying a somewhat creepy subject into a heartfelt journey. I loved every step. Definitely recommend.

10 Astro-Knights

Hands down, the most fun Poptropica island. Not only was it one of the original 9 islands, but the story is great, and the exploration of the planets and the different environments is definitely worth it. Plus the BOSS fights are really entertaining and the island provides a challenge that is both fun and exciting. It's like the best feeling in the world, when you figure out the next step in the game, and it's even better when you beat the level and defeat Mordred.

BEST ISLAND EVER! This was definitely one of the most fun islands ever created. The fact alone that it is basically 4-5 quests is awesome (mainland, 3 planets, and Mordred planet). I never used to like this island because of how difficult and time-consuming it is. When I was 7, it took me over a month!

Now that I'm almost 15, I can complete it in about 30 minutes because I do each battle on my first try. I've done this island about 4 times in total and loved every part, despite how time-consuming. I LOVE IT! After finishing, I felt as if I deserved 10 medallions! Great island!

The Contenders
11 Mystery Train

I have to admit, this island was awesome. They created a whole mystery for us to solve! It's a very challenging and unique island, the only true mystery on the map. I love how not everybody is who they say they are, which makes it all the more mysterious and fun when you find out. You get all these clues, too! Prune juice, coal marks, suspicious famous folks from the 1800s...where to start? I can tell that the creators really put some work into this island.

Mystery Train Island. It is amazing. I truly believe that this is the best island Poptropica has ever made. Ever. It's the only true mystery genre island on the map, and that's what makes it so special compared to other islands; it's so wonderfully exciting, the tension keeps going up and up, the clues are confusing (like any mystery) but they all fit into the plot perfectly, it's that island that keeps you waiting, that you keep coming back to because it's so darn good! And even after you complete it, it's still so much fun to replay. Simply the best.

12 Super Power

In my opinion, this island should be in the top ten for sure. You get to catch super villains with powers and save the day. You even get to fly at the end! The game is so fun. The only thing I didn't like about it is them giving the island medallion to Ned Noodlehead. I guess it was okay because you just had to give him a hot dog for it, but still. You defeat 5 villains on your own, and Ned Noodlehead just finishes off Betty Jetty and gets all the credit. It made me even more furious when I went back to the prison and one of them says, "Now our town is safe again, thanks to our hero, Ned Noodlehead. Oh, and you." But overall, it's a great island.

13 Wimpy Boardwalk

I like this island. When it was announced, I was so excited! To this date, it is most likely my third favorite island, next to Cryptids and Monster Carnival.

I like it because you can find coins and put fake vomit and other fun mini-games. Also, you get to dump popcorn on somebody.

Telling you that this island was awesome. It was quite short but slightly hard (for example, the baseball game and the Mount Everest game).

14 Nabooti

This island is really, really fun! It's not extremely difficult, but it's not easy either. It is what you could call a stereotypical 'adventure' island. But, it's not stereotypical at all! It is a very unique island, traveling around a map of Africa on a plane, collecting jewels in so many different places, and what a creative ending! It is not a predictable island, that's for sure. One of my current favorites! If you love exploring, mysteries, maps, entering mysterious places, or are just an adventurous Poptropica fanatic, I highly suggest you try this island!

15 Poptropolis Games

Really fun game! In my opinion, it's way better than Reality TV. However, I think it would be a bit more accurate if you had to be naked, being that's how it was in ancient times. But, I guess that would also mean that girls wouldn't be able to participate, which wouldn't be fair.

This island is totally flawless. You get to walk around playing very fun Olympic games. So fun! In my opinion, the best island there is.

This island reminded me of the Olympics as it came around the time of the 2012 Olympics. It's fun, and the bonus quest will make you say, "What?!"

16 Back Lot

Back Lot Island was super fun. It had my attention the whole time. I found it extremely entertaining. Ha! I found Back Lot Island, which is about entertainment television, to be very entertaining. Pun. Anyways, Back Lot Island is very fun, and I highly recommend it.

This island is one of my favorites. It should definitely be at least number 8 because, to me, it was much better than Red Dragon. I really like California and film, so it was fun.

This island is fun because it makes you feel like a real star, and it is not as complex as other islands. In the end, you get to watch your movie. It's super fun, people!

17 Steamworks

This island deserves to be ranked number one. Its storyline is interesting, whereas some of the other islands' storylines are completely predictable. Other than AstroKnights and Skullduggery, this is, in fact, one of Poptropica's hardest islands. Unlike some of the others, it uses actual combat. It deserves more credit!

Very challenging island and very visually interesting. Probably the darkest scenery of any island.

Feels good after completing the game at the end. Since it's a massive island, it gives you a challenge, but the plant monsters make it fun when defeated. Especially the plant core, one of the toughest games ever created in Poptropica history. Right now, it's only 2012, so there may be more.

18 Shrink Ray

It was the BEST. Period. Mythology is fun, but isn't there supposed to be something to actually do with the Sphinx? And the battle with Zeus is super hard. If you know how to beat Shrink Ray, it is by far the best Poptropica island.

This was such an awesome island! You really have to think in some spots, like the time when you have to go to the bulletin board to find the combo for the telescope, or when you have to make the salt catapult. Plus, when you move things around in the garbage, you have to think scientifically in order to complete this island. The science lovers out there will have to play this island!

19 24 Carrot

I loved it because it was interesting and it had me on my toes the whole time. Some parts are kinda funny, and Dr. Hare was pretty cute! (Though he was evil...) The story is really unique, but a challenge.

Dr. Hare was pretty cool, and it was so interesting! I think everyone should check it out as it is easy and fun!

This is one of the original islands! It's simple yet entertaining.

20 Skullduggery

This island is clearly the most thought out and carefully coded! It's not a typical Poptropica island because along with solving puzzles and riddles, you get to earn money, hire people, trade objects, and rank up to defeat the evil pirate. It's the most intense and difficult island by far and it took me days to finish, but it has so many characters, places, objects, and mini games that I'm surprised and mad that it isn't in the top 10. This is the best Poptropica island!

I joined Poptropica a few months before Time Tangled was released, back when there wasn't even a second page to the map. Fast forward two to three years and I start to move on to other things. Now, it's 2016. And I still remember my experiences on Poptropica. My favorite island, hands down, has to be Skullduggery. I loved the ship battles and such (obviously, or else I wouldn't even remember it! ).

21 Early Poptropica

Early Poptropica was the first Poptropica island ever! It was super fun and pretty simple to play. I mostly just like flying around with the jetpack though...

I really did not like Early Poptropica that much, but the jetpack was awesome!

22 Red Dragon

Red Dragon's story plot and well-developed characters made this island one of a kind. The story really came to life, and there was never a time when you weren't doing something exciting and challenging. Not to forget, the beautiful scenery and detail that resembled the book in Japan so clearly. One of my favorite islands by far.

There were a lot of interactive things we could do on that island. Honestly, it had the most action, in my opinion. I mean, who doesn't love climbing walls and feeling powerful? This was like the most interesting island too, especially because it was based on a book!

23 Super Villain Island

I really did love this island! The super villain and superhero islands are SO interesting. I mean, my personal favorite out of the superhero and super villain islands... Well, there isn't one! My favorite in the experience would probably just be Super Villain Island. Since superhero had flying powers in it, I loved it! But I really did love Super Villain Island and I highly recommend it.

Super Villain Island is amazing! I love that they brought back so many characters from previous islands, even the ones you only see for a few seconds in the elevator. It was a bit confusing because I did this island before I completed AstroKnights, but it was set up in a way that was easy to understand and very entertaining.

24 Night Watch

I am not a member, but I just completed this island yesterday, in 2 days. It keeps you on your toes and includes tons of thrilling things you can do. I take back what I said about Spy Island. This totally rules! It's open to anyone now, so I recommend you try it. I also liked how you could visit these different stores. The best parts were the air vent chase at the end and the scooter. The smartphone was extremely cool, too.

Fun, but way too tedious. I liked the plot, but I personally don't have the time to go back and forth between three scenes. I enjoyed it, but I thought there could have been a better change of scenery. It gets kinda boring when you're just walking between two or three scenes. I liked playing it the first time, but I probably wouldn't play more than once.

25 Survival

Survival Island is THE BEST! I think this because:

1. It's a great difficulty, not too easy or too hard, just right. It's great for nearly all levels of Poptropicans.
2. This island always kept me on my feet, especially episodes 4 and 5. The storyline is perfect.
3. You have to figure this out pretty much independently. You don't have to talk to people on the island to achieve anything. It's all in what you do and the items you find all by yourself.

For all 45 islands I've completed, the Survival Island Episodes tick all the boxes. It's a must for everyone.
