“Good clean fun, photos galore!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

Alien Zone 51 is like an interactive alien themed set design set up for the sole purpose of allowing visitors to interact and take photos. What a great idea. I also commend the artists and designers that imagined this and created it.

It is situated in the back of a souvenir shop that is less expensive than the UFO Museum gift shop. Admission is $3 and well worth it. We had so much fun taking photos. It made for a memorable trip. And last but not least, the woman who worked the shop was really sweet.

“Great Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2014

This is the perfect way to finish off your visit to the ufo museum.After reading the serious articles on display there head down to this tiny little shop for some fun.You pay 3 dollars to go into a section at the rear where they have great alien scenes set up for some really fun photo opportunities.We laughed the whole time we were in there and got some really great shots and of course we then bought blow up aliens to take back to England!!

“A little cheesey but lots of fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

This place was a lot of fun. Only a couple dollars. Lots of fun photo opportunities. We got some good pictures to laugh about later. Worth going to for sure. Cute little gift shop attached. Nice staff working.

“Best three bucks I've spent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

Stopping off in Roswell en route to California we had to check out the alien sights and this didn't disappoint. Be under no illusion, this is not a high class place but it is fun. $3 each gets you into "Area 51" where there are plenty of opportunities for cheesy photos. Great fun :)

“Hokey but Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2014

The displays were somewhat cheesy but made for great photos by which to entertain friends. It was definitely worth the $3.00 admission fee. We've had some good laughs with the photos we took.
