What starts as a normal day at Waldameer ends with Seth and Julia falling down a bizarre rabbit hole. A social media star named Lux makes three wild claims: 1) Aliens are at Waldameer, 2) the Mega Vortex ride is their spaceship, and 3) they gave him Skee-ball superpowers. Lux has his skeptics, but no one can deny his uncanny arcade abilities. With Waldameer’s reputation at stake, Seth and Julia race to separate fact from fiction.
