School of Dragons FunZone: Have You Met Hiccup?

Since earlier this month, JumpStart has been enjoying an exclusive look into the unreleased School of Dragons virtual world game with the addition of the new FunZones in DownTown and Central Park. Jumpeez from all over the JumpStart World have been flocking to this exciting and all new gaming area, where Hiccup and Toothless have been ready to greet them as they take on round of Fire Ball Frenzy or make their way through the menacing Viking themed maze.

How well do you know Hiccup? For any “How to Train Your Dragon” fan, Hiccup is a living legend that brought about peace between Vikings and Dragons after years of turmoil. To get to know this Viking hero a bit more, here are a few important things to know!

Growing up in the Viking village of Berk, Hiccup lacked the physical strength to mirror a traditional Viking leader like his father, chief of Berk, Stoick the Vast. Because of this, Hiccup has spent much of his life helping Gobber the Belch in the armory. Tinkering with new inventions, Hiccup always exhibited a unique sense of inventiveness and creativity, which would ultimately link him to his dragon companion, Toothless.
