This article contains information on a subject that is not considered canon in the Gravity Falls universe.
Once upon a time... travel, Blendin Blandin searches for the legendary Time Pirate's Treasure, and he needs Dipper and Mabel's help-and yours, too! Journey through time, exploring the dragon-infested medieval era, the weird-and-wild west, and the laser-and-giant-baby-filled future. Will YOU make the right choices to help find the greatest treasure ever known? Or is it only a matter of time before the twins and Blendin are clutched by the hands of time?! This all-new Select Your Own Choose-Venture time-travel treasure hunt features thrilling adventures, original artwork, and an exclusive double-sided poster! 3 choises you have, which one? The Old West (or the old, old west?). Medieval Times (or Medieval England), or 20705 (The Future!).
According to Alex Hirsch, the book is essentially non-canon to the actual series, as it follows a "choose your own adventure" format, having many different possible endings. However, it does contain "one enormous 'canon' secret."
It is speculated that the canon secret could be the Dipper and Mabel's encounter with the Axolotl in "the time and space between time and space."

Sixty degrees that come in threes.
Watches from within birch trees.
Saw his own dimension burn.
Misses home and can't return.
Says he's happy. He's a liar.
Blame the arson for the fire.
If he wants to shirk the blame,
He'll have to invoke my name.
One way to absolve his crime.
A different form, a different time.
This suggests that when, before being erased from existence in the series finale, Bill gives a reversed message that says "A-X-O-L-O-T-L! My time has come to burn! I invoke the ancient power that I may return!," he is actually invoking the Axolotl for redemption for his crime, and that there is one way to get absolved: he has to take "a different form" in "a different time." This would mean that Bill could return someday in the future, but it's unknown if this will ever occur.
The line about "sixty degrees that come in threes" apparently refers to the fact that Bill's shape is an equilateral triangle: three sets of sixty-degree angles (adding up to 180 degrees).
- There is a cryptogram on page 246 that, when decoded using the Caesar cipher, reads, both "Shapes and colors whiz past! Time itself seems to slow to a crawl! Blendin screams! Where are they going?!" and "www.disneyxd.com/awrongturn."
