Spook Central is a fun introduction to Ghost Story Island where you search all over Poptropica to find and capture five ghosts. To get started, go to the main Poptropica map and click on the Spook Central button next to the Ghost Story Island logo. You’ll get a special device called the Plasma Net, which allows you to capture ghosts. You’ll also get the Ghost Files, a packet of information on the five ghosts you must find and capture. Go to each of the five islands where they reside and track them down. When you have the Plasma Net equipped, a small meter will appear in the top left corner of your screen and it will let you know when you are close to your target.
Once you get near the ghost, try to touch it and you will capture it with your net.
Note: only paid members can capture all five ghosts. Non-members will only be able to capture three of them.
You’ll find the Headless Horseman in the Factory area on 24 Carrot Island. The Factory is just to the right of Main Street, where you arrive.
Sweet William’s Ghost
Sweet William’s Ghost is on Main Street, just as you arrive on Shrink Ray Island. Walk to the right to the school entrance and you’ll spot him.
The Bell Witch
The Bell Witch is haunting Wild West Island. She’s inside the Trading Post, which is a few buildings to the right from where your blimp arrives on Main Street.
You’ll find Deogen on Steamworks Island. He’s inside the Steamworks Center and Museum, which is a building right on Main Street. Once you get inside, head to the right and look for him up in the air above you.
The Brown Lady
The Brown Lady is on Skullduggery Island, land of the pirates. She floats around the Main Street area of Fort Ridley. It’s easiest to catch her when she passes by the ground level.
Once you capture all the ghosts, return to the Spook Central area on the main Poptropica Map. Talk to the girl there and she will surprise you with her plan to release all the ghosts and take over Poptropica (it seems like everyone wants to take over Poptropica these days!) You’ll have one minute to re-capture all five of the ghosts and once you do, the game is over and you’ve won. You’ll be rewarded with a Ghost Hunter Suit.
