It is true. We went and my brother got picked. It was great. He got to control it, but theres a secret you'll see at the end of the show that shows that the car isnt really driven by remote controll. HINT. If you're looking at the seating area, look to thr right of what seams to be a room in the crowd. Sit to the right of it in the first few rows and you'll have a better chance of being picked. Also, yyou get a cool certificate if you get picked.
