    I have a rather odd question. Is it possible to buy products from stores at the park by calling and requesting? They don't seem to have an online store anymore, and I'm hoping beyond hope that maybe I could call and place and order. Stupid clumsy idiot me broke my cool silver MIB beer glass. With my luck they dont sell them anymore anyway, but I was wondering if you can do that. Thanks

    :(

    I seem to recall a mail order department, but I don't have the phone number. Call the main phone number, 1-888-U-ESCAPE, and ask to be transferred to the correct place. Otherwise, I will be at Universal sometime at the end of the next month, so I may be able to pick one up for you. I'm sure you can ask one of the "Universal regulars" to pick one up. :)

    MIB999999 is usually there one day a week so if the phone to Universal does not work, i can pick one up and send it to you ups ground.

    Thank you thank you thank you for your help :D

    that's so nice of you to offer to pick me one up! I think I'm going to be OK--I actually found an email link off of what used to be their online store (its being updated now) and a nice lady emailed me back and said she thought she'd be able to help! Yay!

    Thanks again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

    I say we do a contest...

    If MIB9etc. scores 999.999 3 out of 5 times, then you pay for the glass. If he doesn't, MIB9etc. pays for it. :)

    That's probably a good bet now since 999,999 isn't MIB9'S scoring objective nowadays! He's taught too many his secrets and now he's in a different pasture to graze.

    You people are the greatest you know that? Offering to get one of those glasses for me...don't know how many people would do that, got a lot of nice people here!

    I got another email today from the nice lady at Universal's mail order place, and I think I'll be able to get one thru that, so I won't have to bother y'all

    Y'all are so nice to offer to help that much :) :) :) :) :)

    I'll keep ya up to date on what ends up happening!

  11. Im sure they will be happy to assist you in buying the item you want from the park. Call 1-800-U-ESCAPE and ask for the mail order operator and they can get it for you.
