I'm a very young adult, only eighteen, and on behalf of my age group, I can say there isn't anything crazy awesome about the stores. They're all owned by the same person and all sell the exact same thing. They sell t-shirts and rubber toys. What it needs is something cool, like a little glass flying saucer or some green... More

I was in Roswell as one of many stops on a cross-country tour. After visiting the UFO Museum we stopped in at Alien Zone / Area 51 based on the positive reviews here. I have no idea where those reviews came from, but please save yourself the time and go anywhere other than here. For starters, it's just an alien-themed... More

Anyone coming to Roswell, particularly for the historical value, will notice a multitude of stores peddling alien wares. They pretty much carry the same stuff. Pros: they have a decent selection of t-shirts and other fun stuff at fairly reasonable pricing. Shirts started around $8 or $9 for a good variety of sizes, with no up charge for people who... More

This place is cheesy but we had such a great time here exploring our dramatic sides as we interacted with each new photo "booth." It was totally worth the money and 100% worth getting off the highway to visit. We went out of our way on coast-to-coast road trip to visit Roswell for a couple of hours and it was... More

This was a fun place to hang out for a little bit. We (me and my teenage boys) had a blast posing with the aliens and taking funny pics. It wasn't too expensive - definitely worth the silly pictures.

We had a wonderful time here! Buy your shirts here. Across the street the same shirts 2 bucks higher!

This is just a goofy place to hang out! Great souvenir prices and the $3 to go in and take pics was just cheap entertainment that the kids loved! Kids FREE - Adults pay!!! Great place to stop if you are driving thru Roswell and want to get out and walk around for 30 minutes!

Not only is the front of the building run down, the inside is dirty. Guess that is why they keep the lighting low. I thought this would be a fun place after reading some of the other reviews but I could not reccomend this place to anyone. The area 51 is not worth the $3 that they charge. I like... More

It's a pity that the outside and interior of Alien Zone has been allowed to get so run down but at the end of the day, horsing around in this place was the best fun I've had in ages (yes, I know, it's sad really)!

Whilst I agree with the negative reviews, this place is a bit dark but you get used to it once you stay a while. We paid $3 to enter the alien zone which is lots of made up alien scenarios that you can have your picture taken with, including crashed space ship, alien in a bar etc. We had great... More
