“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

My kids visited The Alien Zone with their grandparents last summer and had a ball. The exhibits were fun, and the photos they took were hilarious. When we went this past week, even they expressed their disappointment. Several of the exhibits were dark when they should have been lit up. Many of the accessories/props were missing. They saw a definite difference (and felt the related disappointment) this visit.

“Somewhat scary inside”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

This is a very small place that is dark inside. Employees are a little strange - felt like we were being stalked and pressured to buy - We could not wait to get out. Other reviewers have liked the place, but we just went to the gift shop across the street instead.

“Area 51 and Aliens”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

While driving through Roswell, we wanted to find a place where we could see "aliens" and take photos. We came across Alien Zone and found exactly what we were looking for. You can find pretty much any kind of alien related souvenier from T-shirts to trinkets. Then...for a $3.00 fee, you can enter Area 51 which is set up nicely with alien scenes throughout. You can interact and take as many photos as you'd like. We had fun posing with the aliens. I highly recommend visiting this "alien invaded shop" while in Roswell.

“Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

I wasn't sure what to think of this attraction (tourist trap) before going. My husband and I researched it and decided to give it a try since we were going to Roswell (for obvious reasons). It was so much fun! I mean, if you are willing to pose and be silly, it's a lot of fun. If you are looking for something more serious, then maybe it wouldn't be too fun. We took A LOT of pictures with various props. We stayed in the back for over an hour and we were cracking up the whole time. In fact, while we were back there that's all we heard! A lot of ppl were laughing and being silly. It was a neat experience! The shop is neat and has pretty cheap souvenirs but its the area 51 section that made this experience! It's only 3 dollars a person so it's cheap fun! Yes, it seems a little old but it looks neat in pictures!
