The Arcade Absurdity
by David Gorman

When a social media star named Lux claims the Mega Vortex ride is actually an alien spaceship, people believe him and stop riding it. He also says the aliens gave him superpowers to use in the Waldameer arcade. Seth and Julia are doubtful, but Lux proves it by playing countless perfect games of Skee-ball. Does Lux have Skee-ball superpowers, or is he cheating? Aliens can’t really be at Waldameer, can they? The detectives need to figure out what’s fact and what’s fake. Join Seth, Julia, Anh, and Omar as they search for evidence of aliens while the Mega Vortex’s reputation hangs in the balance!
