Minigame[edit | edit source]
In the minigame, there will be a repetitive sequence in which creatures or objects will try to knock you into the water. For the first round, run up to the front of the boat,making sure not to fall off, and a stalactite will fall down, barely missing you.Then, quickly head to the center of the boat and jump to avoid the flaming skull creature, which will swoop down to attack you. After this, wait to for a spine to rise out of the water, then jump to avoid the green crocodile.Repeat this sequence until you win the game.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Usually in Greek Mythology, you have to give Charon a coin in order to cross the river and he is often portrayed as a greedy person forcing you to give him more coins. However, in Poptropica, Charon simply agrees to ferry you across the river for no charge.
