Back in January, we reported on the possibility of a theme park in Roswell, New Mexico. Now, media in the United States, Australia, and Britain are abuzz with news that the city has received a legislative appropriation of $245,000 for the initial planning of Alien Apex Resort, a bona fide UFO-themed amusement park. “Eventually, when people come to Roswell, they’re not going to have enough time to do everything they want to do. That’s our goal,” Roswell City Planner Zach Montgomery told the Sydney Morning Herald Online. For now, Roswell is the site of the 1947 Roswell Incident, the International UFO Museum and Research Center, and numerous alien-theme shops and restaurants. Alien enthusiasts will be celebrating the 60th anniversary of the Roswell Incident at this year’s Roswell UFO Festival, July 5-8, 2007.
