A strange portal was a portal that appeared in several locations on Gielinor. It could be interacted with to automatically add a statue to one of the plinths in the party area, as part of the 15 Year Anniversary Celebrations. They were present in the game throughout the whole of 2016. Finding a statue in a different way (such as through popping balloons or from a party box obtained from Party Pete) removed the corresponding portal.

When searching a new portal, The following dialogue happened:

  • You place your hand in the portal. [DESCRIPTION TEXT]. Your hand comes across something solid but as you touch it, it disappears.
  • You hear a voice telling you that you have found the statue contained within and that it will be placed in your 15th Anniversary garden, north of Falador.
  • You have unlocked [AMOUNT]/15 statues.
