This hidden gem has great photo opportunities. You won't find yourself spending a lot of time here, but it sure is worth the price!

It was worth the minimal price to go in and take the pictures with all the prop set ups. We spent far more time in there than I thought we would and kids enjoyed posting pictures to social media.

$3 per person. Great photo opportunities and a blast of fun. If you are into aliens go and have some fun. Spend maybe 20 minutes here unless you have kids. Lady at the counter was very nice.

Found this little gem of a shop...with the bonus ‘Alien Photo Ops’ in the back of the shop for a small fee. We made plenty of ‘Alien Themed Fun Pictures’! Also purchased a couple of unique t-shirts too. A must stop and explore when visiting...More

Bad “owner” (she said) attitude attending service staff. Not helpful. And sarcastic. There are other places to go to to get your UFO fix. Don’t go here.

So this place wasn't too bad, but the lakes in my subdivision are bigger... some cool scenery and we saw some cool wildlife. I'd go back just to check out the wildlife... the mosquitoes were off the chart though in October so bring Off.

Lots of funny alien and UFO t-shirts in this shop. They also have a really cool area setup for photo opportunities in the back. That area has a $3.00 admission fee and you can take all the photos you like. Sadly didn’t do the photos...More

Kind of hokey but the exhibits offered some funny photo ops as long as you don't take all of this too seriously.

This place is run down, dirty, and smells bad. But, it’s cheap! We stayed about 15 minutes and took photos with the scenes. Overall I was not impressed. It need a lot of maintenance. The “aliens” look like they are falling apart. I wouldn’t go...More

There is parking on the street as well as a large lot next to the building. You could probably get your RV in the lot.

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.
