Guests attend dressed as a favorite character or in general costumes, such as aliens or robots. The food served is futuristic-looking, and any cocktails or drinks are bright colors, such as appletinis or energy drink mixes. Games include scavenger hunts, costume contests or a futuristic version of a murder mystery.
