This new feature will be a "must see" for anyone who has questions for our resident alien.

Lucky audience members will be able to ask our alien direct questions and get the answers that they've been looking for. The alien experience begins with a chance to visit our tongue in cheek alien displays and listen to the various stories with your headsets after downloading our blue card app. This exclusive app is yours to keep.
