WHERE THE HELL IS LAUGHLIN and HOW DO I GET THERE?
UFO MEGA CON 2019 is being held in the “out of this world” Aquarius Hotel located on the banks of the Colorado River in Laughlin, Nevada.
Why there? Well, the Aquarius is really a good property for UFO MEGA CON. With 2,200 rooms and a great convention center seating about 1,400 people theater style we will probably not have to turn anyone away. Our only real limits on numbers are on the closing banquet/key note speaker night, because the room set up banquet style seats less than 1,000. None the less, it is a large comfortable venue. The food is great. The rooms are great. At the Aquarius we can bring you the UFO MEGA CON at amazing CONFERENCE AND HOTEL INCLUSIVE PACKAGES! (Including gratuity’s, taxes, and resort fees! Truly an inclusive price.) The location is right on the Colorado River and the River Walk is wonderful. Visit the REGISTRATION PAGE.
Most people who fly in will use Las Vegas airport as their destination. There are more direct flights with very low prices (especially in advance) into Las Vegas from more places in the world than anywhere else. Then you take a shuttle direct to the hotel or rent a car for the 8 days (most rental car companies give great discounts for a weeks rental).
Now, although most people who fly in will come into Las Vegas, you CAN FLY DIRECTLY INTO “BULLHEAD CITY / LAUGHLIN AIRPORT” (located directly across the river from the Aquarius Hotel) if you come thru Phoenix Arizona. For many the relatively small extra Air Ticket cost of going into Phoenix and then continuing directly into Laughlin is worth it.
Laughlin is about 90 minutes drive East/S.E. out of Las Vegas, on the Colorado River where the boarders of Nevada, California, and Arizona all meet. The other most popular way of getting there is of course driving your own car. If you are two or more coming to UFO MEGA CON then driving is an affordable option. It is also just nice to have a car with you when you are there for 8 nights or more. And remember, PARKING IS FREE.
Do I have to be staying at the Aquarius Hotel to attend UFO MEGA CON? No. Attending with your motor home? No problem. Stay in your motor home and save the hotel cost. If you are driving, you can also stay at even lower cost motels across the river in Bullhead City. Stay in Bullhead instead of at the Aquarius and register sans hotel. This will lower your cost and we ENCOURAGE YOU TO DO THE RESEARCH on other hotels. Plus, there are campgrounds nearby! Another viable “affordable” option.
One more important option to get to UFO MEGA CON; one that almost nobody knows about. Special gamblers junket flights (air and hotel) for 3 and 4 night stays in Laughlin. (You do not have to gamble even one penny to take these flights!) During the 8 nights of UFO MEGA CON there will be direct flights into Laughlin for low cost 3 and 4 night air/hotel package stays from (estimate) about 10 to 12 different cities located in the mid-west or western half of the US.
These flights will allow people located near these cities to fly directly into Laughlin for a very low air/hotel price. You would be staying at the Riverside Hotel, right next door to the Aquarius Hotel, a 10 minute’s walk on the “river walk” between properties. If one of these special flights is leaving from an airport anywhere near you (even up to a 2 or 3 hr. drive from you) you would be crazy not to take advantage and fly directly to Laughlin to attend for as much of UFO MEGA CON as the special flight schedule will allow.
The thing about these flights is that you can only find out about the departure cities from the Riverside Hotel about 2 months before UFO MEGA CON. But, during the days of the original “International UFO Congress” these flights allowed many people, who just couldn’t get there by conventional means, to affordably attend the EVENT for several days. Worth looking at. You may get lucky with a departure city near enough to you. Check the Riverside website or call them and talk to the flight/room junket department directly for departure cities anywhere near you during the week of UFO MEGA CON. (If you talk to the reservation people sweetly, they will often tell you the departure cities and dates before they are posted on the web.)
Finally, travel safe – no matter how you get to LAUGHLIN for UFO MEGA CON!
