Southern California is a popular place for UFO fanatics, enthusiasts and novice followers. In fact, just a few days ago, over 2,000 people attended the increasingly popular UFO convention that took place at the Joshua Tree Retreat Center in Joshua Tree, California. Of course, California also has Hollywood with their Sci-Fi tales and various amusement parks with Sci-Fi themed adventures. Now, it appears, California might become home to the first man-made UFO hotel.
Owner of the Alien Fresh Jerky in Baker, California, Luis Ramallo is looking to build a hotel in his same town, with the goal of capitalizing on the fantasy and popularity of UFO’s. His vision is to build an actual hotel that is shaped like a UFO.
The project will cost roughly $30 million and Mr. Ramallo has a Kickstarter campaign where you can donate to this venture. The goal is to raise $175,000 with options of giving anywhere from $1 to $10,000. The campaign ends on July 17.
The idea is to have 31 alien themed rooms in the space ship hotel, with a price tag of roughly $300 per night.
Baker is located along Interstate 15, halfway between Barstow and the Nevada Border. In fact, it’s really one of the last towns on the highway before you are completely in the desert without much civilization around. It’s best known for having the world’s tallest thermometer. It was founded as a railroad station and has a population just north of 700.
