Poptropica Launches Arabian Nights, First Island Based On A Fan’s Idea

The first quest on the virtual world for kids based on a fan-submitted idea, Arabian Nights takes players on a journey to an ancient land of sultans, thieves and a magical lamp with power beyond imagination. The full public launch of Arabian Nights will be on Oct. 23, 2014.

An episodic adventure in three parts, Arabian Nights begins when the Sultan asks Poptropica Players to retrieve his cherished lamp from the 40 thieves, and players quickly learn that the lamp may be the greatest treasure in the kingdom. The winner of Poptropica’s Create Your Own Dream Island contest , Sarah S. (Poptropica player Magic Eagle), found the inspiration for her Island in souvenirs her dad brought back from his deployment to Kuwait, including a genie lamp, a magic flying carpet and Clyde the camel.

It could be the best island to launch on Poptropica since the highly acclaimed Red Dragon Island.

Describing her reaction when she found out she won the contest, Sarah said, “When I found out I had won, I screamed, jumped up and down, and danced around the house for at least an hour.”

Well, she sounds like she was excited.
