This was a fun and different way to hangout with friends. We played "UFOs area Real" and we were able to complete the game and the bonus game. I can only imagine the amount of work it takes to find all of those VHS tapes....More

Had a blast today with teen, college and senior citizens alike! Don’t let the authentic-looking, small town video storefront fool you! The UFO’s are Real game is so fun and well paced, highly interactive, and a huge hit with my pop culture, film-loving family. Our...More

Went with my 18yo daughter, just the two of us. We had a good time, enjoyed solving the puzzles, though we know little about movies. The proprietor is very nice and accommodating. I can't see doing it with more than 4 people.

There was only two people in my party and we had a blast! We participated in the original version of the game, "UFO Video". It felt like an intense scavenger hunt. You are timed as you go through the clues and solving the puzzles. We...More
