This function teleports a
Player to the place associated with the given placeId.
Teleport can be called both from the client and the server (see examples below).
When teleporting from the client, as only the
Players/LocalPlayer can be teleported, no player argument is required.
You may only teleport players to places within the same game or active start places for other games.
A teleportData parameter can be specified. This is data the client will transmit to the destination place and can be retrieved using
The teleportData can take any of the following forms:
- A table without mixed keys (all keys are strings or integers)
- A string
- A number
- A bool
As the teleportData is transmitted by the client it is not secure. For this reason it should only be used for local settings and not sensitive items (such as the users’ score or in-game currency).
If you need teleport data to persist across multiple teleports, you can use
A customLoadingScreen argument can be specified. This is a
ScreenGui that is copied (without scripts) into the
CoreGui of the destination place.
TeleportService/SetTeleportGui is the preferred alternative to the customLoadingScreen argument as it can be called prior to the teleport.
ScreenGui can be obtained in the destination place using
TeleportService/GetArrivingTeleportGui, where developers can parent it to the
PlayerGui. It will not be used if the destination place is in a different game.
In some circumstances a teleport may fail. This can be due to the developer configuring the teleport incorrectly or issues with Roblox’s servers.
- If a teleportation request is rejected the
TeleportService/TeleportInitFailedevent will fire the error message and a
Enum/TeleportResultenumerator describing the issue
- Teleports can fail ‘in transit’, after the user has left the server, due to issues with Roblox’s servers. In this case the user will be shown an error message and be required to rejoin the game
This service does not work during playtesting in Roblox Studio — To test aspects of your game using it, you must publish the game and play it in the Roblox application.
