We got all the way there and it was closed. I called ahead and the employee at first services couldn't even tell me if it existed or not. She suggested I use the website which also had no information.

Worst place in the entire myrtle beach city. Good for people who like to walk around for an hour and read about alien monuments. The UFO live experience was just a fan blowing some mist all for a grand total of 100$ for me and...More

If you're into aliens and UFOs, this is a fun experience. It's a little short so be sure to take your time as you go through it. It does have a lot of interesting things including an "alien abduction" type hallway which was cute.

I had to drag my husband here. Most of the data offered, I already knew. Still interesting to see and hear some of the film clips.

It's really short, but fun for little kids who are into this kind of stuff. It's not worth the money in my opinion.

I had a great time at Encounters. The only reason I wouldn't give it a higher ranking is because it didn't take as long to go through as expected. For the price of admission (and we used a coupon), our group thought the experience should...More
