Sometimes we talk to people who imagine it must be great fun to work at Poptropica. Well, they're right, but there is a downside: like having to spend hours getting chased around a carnival by creepy monsters! And you thought gym class was stressful.

The long, strange journey of Monster Carnival

Longtime Poptropicans know that Monster Carnival was supposed to be one of our earliest Islands. It was announced in 2008, and even added to the travel map with a message that said "Coming Soon." Then it disappeared without notice.

Why?

There have been a lot of explanations over the years. Some were closer to the mark than others. Frankly, we'd like to let the conspiracy theories go on, because they're more interesting than the truth. But it's time we came clean.

Monster Carnival was removed from the Poptropica travel map because it wasn't finished, and everybody was too busy with other projects to give it the attention it needed. That's all! We really just announced it too early, got onto other things, and never came back to it.

But as Monster Carnival continued to live on in the imaginations of our players, we couldn't let it go. What a great name! Every year, when we discussed what new Islands to make, somebody would say "Monster Carnival!" and everyone else would nod. Then we'd pick a bunch of other Islands to do instead.

Maybe we were intimidated. We all know what happens when something becomes anticipated for too long. Better to leave it as an unrealized dream, rather than risk not delivering.

Well, every dog has his day, and the same is true of a great idea for a Poptropica Island. Monster Carnival is very real this time, and we hope it is worth the wait.
