Abduction times

Main article: UFO#Abductions

In increments of five minutes, the UFO would abduct one random player in a room, depending on the minute of the hour. Upon being abducted for the first time, players would receive the Tinfoil Hat. The following table depicts the times and the corresponding rooms where it would occur:

Minute Room
04 Snow Forts
09 Plaza
14 Forest
19 Mine Shack
24 Skatepark
29 Cove
39 Ski Hill
44 Ski Village
49 Beach
54 Dock
59 Town
There was no room corresponding to times with the minutes being 34


  • The item was based on a real-life object of the same name, worn under the belief they will shield the wearer from mind control.
  • During the Frozen Fever Party 2016 and Halloween Party 2016, this item was only obtainable at the Skatepark since all other rooms that abductions occurred in had the same swf as the 2015 parties of the same name, which were both made before abductions were coded into the files.
