The word is official: the next island in Poptropica is going to be named Wild West Island and it will (obviously) have a Western theme. The creators of Poptropica first leaked this news unintentionally when Jeff Kinney recorded a video and we could all see sketches of Wild West Island hanging on the wall behind him. Now we know the island will come out for paid members in February and then for the public in March.
There’s something even better: the sneak preview of the island is already here and you can find it on the map. You don’t need to be a member to access it. You don’t see the actual island like we did with the Cryptids Island preview. Instead, you can play a mini-game called round ‘em up. The goal is to rope three cows and bring them back to your ranch within two and a half minutes. There are seven prizes to win and the prizes change every few days so you need to return often to play and collect all the prizes. Paid members can also get a special Wild West hero outfit just by winning the game once.
