LevelsEditThis episode contains levels 2451-2465.
Even though hard episodes are the norm, it's almost impossible to have an episode as hard as this. Popsicle Plateau broke every record in terms of difficulty, to the point where it makes Luscious Lane, and even Cavity Cave, look easy, with a mean of 7.4, the second highest in the game; only Cocoa Cove has a higher mean of 7.47. Also, like the previous episode, every level has a difficulty of at least very hard, except for two levels, which are rated hard: 2451 and 2465. The "easiest" level is 2451, but it is more accurate to say that it is the "least hard" level. Another notable thing is that it contains six extremely hard levels: 2452, 2453, 2456, 2460, 2462 and 2464, and one nearly impossible level: 2454. The rest of the levels are rated very hard. Many players quit playing after encountering this episode.
Overall it’s much harder than the previous episode, the already difficult Haystack Hills.
