Fun and low cost for some good pictures but good grief, clean and vacuum once in a while! I was afraid to sit on anything or touch anything because it looks so filthy! But we did get some funny pics

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 arrived on a Friday and squealed into their parking lot at 4:45. They were closing at 5:00 but we're happy to admit us and told us not to feel rushed.

Hello. Actually We never saw the t-shirt with that on it. If I had, definitely would have purchased one. Very funny.
