Charity Fundraiser Shooting Gallery

In 1979 Ridley Scott’s classic Alien introduced the crew of the Nostromo to the ultimate extraterrestrial species, the Xenomorph.  Emerging from an egg as a Face-hugger, gestating inside a host organism before literally ‘chest bursting’ from John Hurt – this monster with acid for blood represents the most base fears of humanity.

In the 1986 Aliens, James Cameron ups the ante with a whole horde of Xenomorphs having been set loose on planet LV-426 by the unsuspecting residents of a terraforming colony. A squad of interplanetary soldiers, the Colonial Marines, take up the call to determine why all contact with LV-426 has been lost, only to discover the Xeno’s provide a much bigger challenge than anything they have encountered before.

Now it’s your turn to test your aim against the ultimate ET, while at the same time supporting a great cause by taking a turn on the Child Cancer Foundation Airsoft shooting gallery.  In fact, if you’re feeling brave why not dig deep and take on a whole Alien army?

NZ’s very own chapter of the Colonial Marines are likely to be on hand to act as backup in case your aim isn’t quite as good as you think it is, or if any pesky Xeno’s make a run for it!  Come along, say hello and maybe pose for a picture with them.
