JumpStart Escape from Adventure Island is a JumpStart game released by Knowledge Adventure for the Wii in 2009. It is intended to teach math, reading, and critical thinking skills.

After crash-landing on a mysterious island, the player has to collect sand dollars in a quest to repair their blimp.


In this game, the player can create an avatar character, known as a Jumpee, and explore 3-D environments. Players can also customize their Jumpee and their own tree house. Its gameplay is rather reminiscent of JumpStart (online game), to such an extent that all of the activities are either the same or derivative of those found in the online game.

The goal of the game is to earn sand dollars, which can be used to buy the oxygen tanks you need to get off the island. These can be earned by playing activities. There are both white and gold sand dollars.

As in most JumpStart games, its activities contain three difficulty levels. Educational activities have both three Curriculum Levels and three Game Levels, while non-educational ones only have three Game Levels.


  • Jumpeez: The name of avatars in the game.
  • Frankie: Is seen crash-landing the blimp. During the game, he's seen repairing the blimp in the background. Other than that, he doesn't do anything.
  • Bailey: Informs the player about the game at the beginning. When talked to, he gives information about the areas on land.
  • Jean Claude: When talked to, he gives information about the areas underwater.
  • Kat: Appears as a judge in the Trendy Tides activity.
  • Punk-Punks: Enemies.
