Popalicious Station is a mission in the Octo Expansion.
You start out on a separate platform from the stage with a launch pad that, when entered, will start the level. Upon landing, three balloons will appear. Next, on the other side of a grate, a single balloon will appear. Upon popping that balloon, a single balloon will be on the left, while a group of four balloons will be straight in front. It's recommended that you pop the group first. After popping all five balloons, two sets of three balloons will appear on the right, past where the single balloon was, with moving Octowashers down the path you take. The second set will appear after the first is popped. After you pop the sets of balloons, a single balloon will appear. Use the Bounce Pads behind the wall to reach the balloon, depending on your weapon of choice, and hop over the wall to a set of 8 balloons. After popping the balloons, move to your right to find a single balloon. Upon popping, to your left, three balloons will appear. After popping, one balloon will appear, and an Octowasher will be present again. Beyond the Octowasher is a second balloon, and after popping, leads to a single balloon that spawns four balloons when popped. Continue on after the four and pop the three balloons that appear one after the other, using the Gusher to reach the third. After popping, at your right, three balloons will appear, one alone, then the other two together. After being popped, jump down to the next balloon in the lowest area. Upon being popped, three balloons will be present behind crates. There will then be one balloon that will float along the path, and after popping, will spawn another balloon past two Bounce Pads and an Octowasher. Past that, two balloons will spawn in past two Octowashers going in circles. Once popped, go past a wall of crates to the final balloon. Test Passed!
