The site of the infamous 1947 UFO incident is being opened up to the public for tours next month.
There are few events in UFO lore as hotly debated as the Roswell incident, an event that has been covered in countless books, documentaries, TV shows and movies over the last few decades.

Now for the first time, people interested in visiting the actual UFO crash site will be given the opportunity to do so during the annual Roswell UFO Festival next month.

The crash site itself is located on a working ranch which has never been open to the public before.
"We're working side by side with the UFO Festival and local businesses to feature yet another fun, educational and exciting event to an already thriving economic resource for our community," said Lauren Bogle, the tour company's CEO.

"The entire experience will showcase the culture of New Mexico and our ranching heritage through fun activities, food, souvenirs and experiences while on the tour."

Last year marked the Roswell incident's 70th anniversary.

"Roswell is really the ground zero of the UFO phenomenon," said former MoD UFO researcher Nick Pope. "It's the place not just where there was a sighting, here the suggestion was that something crashed, if that's true, the US government has in its hands definitive evidence that we are not alone."

V.I.P. tour, i guess they get to see a lab with a rubber alien on a slab. With those prices, i want a trip in "the" flying saucer (i take it they must have fixed the brakes by now). I see there is a bus tour too, what! No tour in a balloon.

I wonder if they have one of those boards where you stick your head through and the board shows you piloting a saucer about to  crash.

I have the same observation.......why was it not open to public before? Was it the owners of the land that decided not to have the public trample there land or was it a government decision?

There was nothing to see. Maybe a few bits of balloon but i reckon they got all that cleaned up by now.

I really doubt anyone is making millions here, just some locals generating some business with some clever entrepreneurung taking advantage of a local legend.  Good luck to them I say. Generating jobs is admirable. I'd go if I could.
