Spotted on Kickstarter: A UFO-Themed Hotel Where You Can Get Married as an Alien
If Luis Ramallo has it his way (and if enough people back his Kickstarter project), Baker, California will soon become home to a two-story, UFO-themed hotel. Each of the 31 rooms in the $30 million project would glean inspiration from celestial anomalies like black holes and cosmic storms to more functional areas like spaceship cargo rooms and medical bays.
Other hotel details include employees donned in space-visitor uniforms; an alien-themed spa, restaurant, and nightclub; and a gift shop featuring souvenirs and snacks with names like “Alien Fresh Jerky.” But the best attraction might be the marriage cathedral, where guests can get hitched costumed as aliens.
The hotel is currently in its funding stages (hence the Kickstarter campaign), but room rates are expected to start at $300 a night for anyone looking to turn their sci-fi dreams into a few nights of non-fiction. Check out the video and images below for a better look at what the hotel would look like:
