Create Your Dream Island runner-up #1

We've announced the grand-prize winner of the Create Your Dream Island contest. To read about the winning entry, Arabian Nights Island, click here.

We're also featuring the 10 runners-up, in alphabetical order. Today's runner-up is:

Bikes Vs. Boards Island, submitted by Tori V. of Texas!

The pitch: Poptropicans try to stop the constant fighting between the bikers and surfers before anyone gets hurt.

Why we liked it: Tori's Island idea had a great setting -- a beach in the 1960s -- and lots of fun ideas for gameplay. (Who wouldn't want to surf and ride a motorcycle?) We also liked the message about helping two rival groups to understand that their differences aren't as important as what they have in common.

We asked Tori, whose avatar name is Quiet Berry, a few questions. Here are her answers!
Poptropica Creators: How did you come up with the idea for your Island?
Tori: I got the idea from a movie I was watching that day.
Poptropica Creators: How did you react when you found out you’d won?
Tori: So excited...I like winning things!
Poptropica Creators: How long have you been playing Poptropica?
Tori: A couple of years :D
Poptropica Creators: Which Island is your favorite?
Tori: Reality TV Island.
Poptropica Creators: What 3 things would you want with you on a deserted island?
Tori: A working helicopter, a pilot, and a hammock (for before the helicopter takes us back to the mainland).
That's smart thinking, Tori. No wonder you're a runner-up in the Create Your Dream Island contest!
