Mysteries of the Construction Guy and Balloon Boy

Update: OK, thank you to everyone in the comments who points out that Construction Guy does appear in Counterfeit Island. He’s blocks the way to certain parts of the island when night comes. I must have missed him. And there’s one new update to Balloon Boy. You can see him in the background when you’re on the Scooter chase sequence (see the screenshot below). Go, Balloon Boy, go!

A lot of people are writing comments asking what happened to the Construction Guy in Counterfeit Island. If you remember back in November, the creators posted some sneak peek screenshots of characters we would meet in Counterfeit Island. The first turned out to be the security guard up in the museum security office. The third is the woman who leads the tour of the underground tunnels. But the guy in the middle, who is wearing coveralls and a construction helmet, doesn’t seem to appear anywhere on the island. Did we miss him or did he get dropped from the island before it was released? Have you seen him on Counterfeit Island? If so, post in the comments!

Many people are also asking what happens to Balloon Boy. When you give him a green balloon, he takes off in the air. If you don’t have access to Counterfeit Island yet, you can see him at about one minute into Part 1 of my Counterfeit Island Walkthrough video. This is a joke by the Poptropica Creators that references the big Balloon Boy hoax from October when everyone thought a young boy from Colorado was trapped inside a giant weather balloon that had taken off from his parent’s backyard. In Counterfeit Island’s joke version, we see little Balloon Boy fly off into the air but never return. You can watch the TV in the Web Cafe and see scenes of him flying away. But what will happen to poor little Balloon Boy in Poptropica? Will we ever see him again? We need answers!

Save Balloon Boy! We need to know he is safe!

  1. When it’s night and you try to go Down town, you’re stopped by the construction guy.

  2. I saw the guy in the middle, when the night falls he dont let you go downtown

  3. POOR BALOON BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    =,[

  4. i have first comment

  5. Oh my dear…but he does help us to get the tickets, dosen’t he?

  6. Yeah he helps us.

  7. i have seen the construction guy all he does is go home from work at night duh!

  8. the construction guy was there during the night. he was blocking the way to other parts of the island. sorry if this was already posted!

  9. soooooooooooo maybe i want to save baloon boy

  10. wow….but does any of this have to do with the locked chest in the black widdow’s house (if you have been in there there).

  11. i am wondering if you save him a ghost gives you the key to the chest.

  12. if you now how to save him please…TELL US!!!

  13. i finshed it but, ballon boy does help u get the tickets , just click the 2nd garbage by the lamppost by the tunnl enterens.

  14. Ah when I was in Counterfeit Island’s chatroom I saw someone wearing that costume.

  15. Sunny the balloon boy is no help. He is just a joke. Though he is useful in one way; he gets the guy in the internet cafe of his computer. Though to find the tickets you look in the open trash can in downtown. Then return them to the guy in the internet cafe. He will give you one.

  16. the constructionguy is blocking the way to down town when night falls.
    hope this helps!

    ~MAY PEACE BE WITH YOU BALOON BOY~

  58. I know what happned to the construction guy well at night you see him blocking down town.

  59. he is there night blocking down town

  60. I thought that part of the mission was to save the balloon buy. If we never see him, what was the use of putting him there?

  61. Actually, he’s the guy who stole “The Scream” ,and helps you defeat the Black Widow.

  62. who saves baloon boy?????????????????????????????????????????

  63. yeah it took me one month to complete all the islands and thanks to your cheats i finished counterfeit island in 1hr and a half! and it is pretty long and can you save balloon boy or not? tell me if you find out!

  65. i finished it in laik 20 mins!!!

  66. How do we save ballom boy

  67. I wish we could save the balloon boy.. :[

  68. You know when the balloon boy started to float away? That person right next to him was his sis, BUT WHERE DID SHE RUN AWAY TO? I ABSOLUTELY DO NOT KNOW !?

    Hey if you’ve figured it out or completed the island, email me !
    Thanks

  69. The Constrution guy appears when it’s night, by the downtown sign and he makes it so you can’t get through the entrance to downtown. He claims that there is ‘nighttime constrution’ going on, so that’s why you can’t get through. Toodles.

  70. aidyl they put the boy in there so the guy leaves his laptop and tells you to get tickets to go to tunnel

  71. I didnt collect all of the “torn picture” peices, & it’s now nightfall. The construction guy wont let me pass, but I need to get by to collect the other peices. What do I do?

  72. purpleprincess11

    which piece did u not collect if its the one in the tunnel ur lucky u can collect the one there and go into the mueseum if its not piece then i’m not sure.

  83. Scary Hero(person name)

    i like this island because it has alot of secrets but the thing thats really sad in the game is its the ONLY island that has nightfall! plus it only happens once for maybe one minute!!! its no fair they need to make less day and more night/dusk!!!

  84. Poor Balloon Boy
    I hope some1 saves him!!
    Or maybe they’ll make an island 4 him!!
    I shouldn’t have gave him a balloon!!

  85. umm i think this was one of the boringest islands other than astro-knights. and remember to collect all the scraps of paper before u apply for the job or else ur stuck!!!!

  86. What about the balloon boy? Isn’t anyone gonna get him

    You 2,you go get balloon boy to float.To do that,go to Bobo`s Clown Store and pick up a green balloon(it has to be the green one).Now go all the way right to the “Country Side”and give the balloon to the boy(now he becomes balloon boy)and he will float.Go beside the clown store(on the right)and look in the right garbage can.The ticket is at the bottom.Now go see the computer guy and he will tell you to get his tickets.Click on the tickets in your bag and click Use.Now he will give you a ticket!

  117. Please Ben where’s the Black Widow’s chest?

  240. um balloon boy should not be part of counterfeit cause its nothing

  241. The construction guy was at night at counterfeit island when you left your job at the museum! I forgot a piece of the picture so i went to go get a balloon. I couldn’t because the construction guy was doing night work!

  242. I know where he is!! One time i messed up on my old account. i didnt find all the pieces to the torn picture,so it was already nightfall. i couldnt go to the country side because he was in the way!! you are right Whywouldyoucare!!(i know..)

  243. looks like the guy in nabooti from the diamond mines!!

  244. yo,
    he’s the construction guy when night falls……………ummmm it wont let u go to the musem so ur forced to go to that strange man at the end of the tour……..well………can’t say anymore………..bye

  245. Balloon Boy yer gonna FALL AND DIE, WHY DID YA DU IT??? YAR MOMA WASNT SOOOOOOOOOO MAD AT YA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  246. The construction guy blocks the way to the Country Side when you go to meet the mysterious guy at night. I was looking for the last piece of the torn picture, thinking it was near the detective’s house, but for some reason, they do ‘night construction’.

    Is that even safe?

    Whatever. I really appreciate this site and all the help for each island! Might as well give back. 🙂

  253. jhonryan thers no n in black widow u spelt it wrong no n remeber that

    that is not legal to do road construction at night what a weirdo

    pleez let ballon boy on your new island potropica creators pleez im beggin u

  255. to get some torn pictur parts go to the exit of the under ground tour go thru it and go to places by that

  256. Maybe the construction worker has something to do with balloon boy….. is it possible balloon boy landed on the trees close to where he first dissapeared, and as rere commented, “that is not legal to do road construction at night” and they were just covering something up??????????

  257. HLOY CRAP I SAW HIM!!!!!!!!!!!AFTER THE WHOLE ISLAND IS DONE GO TO THE TOUR SITE!!!!!! I SAW HIM!!!! MAYBE YOU WON’T, BUT E-MAIL ME BACK!!SOMEONE DID SAYING HEY DID SEE HIM BUT 23 OTHERS SAID THEY DIDN’T!!HOLY CRAP!!!!

  259. Princess Middle East

    Me too. Maybe we can. Somehow they will let ballon boy land on the new island after the great pumpkin island. I hope.

  260. me too. i’ll email the creator, maybe he will respond.

  261. i e-mailed the creator and idk when he’ll respond back.

  262. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Balloon_boy_hoax

    copy this into your web address bar to see what the balloon boy hoax is.

  263. balloon boy’s parents are jerks!!

  264. Why doesn’t balloon boy land on an island?

  265. I found out where the balloon boy was

  266. You can see him from the view finder thing by loch ness in cryptids island ( The old lady will stop you after a bit, so look in the sky as long as possible to find him!!!)

  267. um i have a question…why is the construction guy there anyway? i mean night construction is pretty dangerous since you can’t see at night…so why?

  268. i wish the poptropica creaters would make him land or something i wish i didnt give him the balloon but i think you have to ps i didnt see balloon boy in the viewfinder

  269. some people (mermaid girl) saved him they got all the outfits and everthing ill tell you if she tells me how

  270. Hi I have theory of balloon boy. Maybe Balloon Boy did land down, but after so many years he grew up and now one reliased it was him (I mean come on when was Counterfiet Island released? He must have grown up.) I think they should make an island called Unknown Man where there’s Balloon boy grown and back for revenge. He knows we will come there so it’s a setup. Also you can only go there once you finished all of the island yet, and when you go there, he will blow up your balloon because he is mad and can’t bare to see balloons, and does every thing to trouble us.

  271. Oh and it will be called unknown man because no one knows it really is him.

  272. i really need to know the gold and sparkely outfit i told my friend i could get it but now i cant
    please please help i dont want to be a lier

  273. WHERE ARE THESE STUPID PEOPLE?????????????????

    All right, if you people won’t tell us where the are………
    …. the LEAST you could do is let us join then!

  274. the unknown man island sounds really cool! wat is the creators email address?:)

  275. Balloon boy is on the TV on Reality TV Island!

  276. Just go to the poptropica game and find the “contact us” link. And send your message.
    But science there is so much comments, they can’t give you any answer

  277. Shiny Snowball

    He is the construction guy I am missing the last pieces but I think it is in the police station

  278. you save him by going to reality tv island and talk to the girl with
    camera. then you use the vampire costume to scare the salsman at the tv store then
    grab your cell phone and dial 5556789 and then he falls down from the sky.

  279. ( just kidding) i have no idea of how to save balloon boy……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

  280. the first time i did counterfeit island he wusnt there but when i re-did it he was there… weird…

  281. Dangerous Monster (poptropican name)

    I didn’t see him at all… to bad, I wonder if he crash landed and died. poor thing, dying at such a young age……………………. ITS ALL MY FAULT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!… sniff…

  282. Dangerous Monster (poptropican name)

    you know I have the feeling that no one will right back to me… I’m new here. Is that why?? I don’t know anybody. :[

  283. i think i saw balloon boy when he was grown up on shrink ray island i mean i saw a green balloon that is a little wrinkled and looks exactly like the one from counterfeit

  284. RRRRR i’m gonna kill balloon boy!

  285. hmm…….. maybe i’ll use that shrink ray gun from the store and shrink that balloon. then for balloon boy, he’s fonna fall and DIE!

    or i can sneak a bomb in his balloon.

  286. WHY AM I ALWAYS LAST TO COMMENT?!?!?!?!?!?!?! 😥

  287. Its so funny, because I wanted to finish this island without this cheat site. So I found balloon boy with his mom, and his mom spoke in french!!! i dont know any of that! And that french-english dictionary page did not help. so guess what – i had to find a translation website to find out what she said, and it meant something like my son wants a green balloon.
    the construction man s blocking the country side area at night.
    what has balloon boy actually have to do with it? i mean he’s nothing to do with the theft, and you dont rescue him or anything…… WIERD!!!!!!!!!!

  288. THAT WOULD BE LIKE SUPER FUNNY IF BALLOON BOY WAS SPOTTED IN THE NEW ISLAND COMING OUT,OH AND BTW,NO IM NOT TALKIN ABOUT MYSTERY TRAIN!LOL!

  314. i agree with silver panda but instead the island should be like a mini island. and i did not see the construction guy.

  315. Balloon boy’s mom looked sooo worried when he floated away. I was worried she would come and put the BEATDOWN on me. 🙂

  316. OMG is saw that construction guy in a glitch at that weird house thing. he flashed outside for a sec but disappeared in the glitch. i also saw him by the docks, but i’m not sure. balloon boy is rumored to return in an upcoming island i think.

  317. i has idea for new stuff from the comments.
    a gold card were you save people you left like balloon boy, the girl in lunar colony, and Mordred(you wouldn’t really save him but you would take him to jail alive). it should be for non-members and you should have to save them from disasters.
