We visited Alien Zone Area 52 looking for a bit of a laugh and we got one. It was completely cheesy but we loved it. Worth the trip especially if you have kids who will love getting photos with the resident aliens

Better of the Alien spots but needs updating. Needs cool alien sound effects and lighting. Also recommend they repaint the sign outside

We have visited here a few times, with the most recent being this month. The gift shop didn't seem to have as many items as it did on our previous visits but I did hear them say that they design all of their own tshirts for their shop and they have a ton! The photo ops are lots of fun!... More

If you're looking for a free laugh then this is a great option. Otherwise, don't waste your time. This store has terrible ambiance, does not smell good and all of the souvenirs are of extremely poor quality. I took some pictures just to illustrate how ridiculous this establishment is. Please enjoy.

It was just another shop with souvenirs and shirts, it seemed really dated. But on a good note the window displays are absolutely gorgeous and filled with info better then the actually store in my opinion.

This place is in the back room of a gift shop and you wont even know it exists unless you already know it exists (if that makes any sense). It's a silly place with aliens propped in everyday situations - a bar, living room, diner, hospital etc. Go there, take as many ridiculous pictures as you can and have a... More

It's cheesy, but a lot of fun. A lot of great photo ops with the Aliens. My husband and I had just as much fun as our 12 year old did. This place is a must see, and we will be going back!

This isn't a place to go looking for high-brow entertainment or lots of historical knowledge. It's just a fun place to take pictures and not take things seriously. I honestly didn't find Roswell in itself to be very exciting but at least my husband and I got some hilarious pictures from here. So this place made it worth it!
