Alien exhibit to reopen in Myrtle Beach this spring
"Encounters: UFO Experience," an exhibit dedicated to the history of UFOs and alien encounters, is set to reopen at Broadway at the Beach on April 3, 2014.
The exhibit, which is said to contain evidence to support claims of alien encounters, features artifacts as well as interactive adventures. Visitors can even experience an alien abduction designed from the accounts of thousands of eyewitness acounts of such events, according to a news release.
Participants can explore evidence about famous UFO events such as Roswell and Area 51, space travel, or pop culture's fascination with the world beyond Earth. The exhibit's artifacts and galleries will be ever-changing, the release said.
"The unique and extraordinary content in our galleries have been provided by UFOlogists from around the world," said Brian Bouquet of The Event Agency. "We plan to keep 'Encounters' dynamic and fresh, so we'll always be looking for more contributions to the story it tells."
Bouquet said Myrtle Beach was chosen to host the exhibit because of the multiple UFO sightings -- 59 reported in 2012 -- along the coast. He said the exhibit is family-friendly and for people with all levels of interest in the topic.
"Whether you're a science fact or a science fiction fan or just curious about intergalactic travel and its implications for the people of Earth, you'll find this exhibition to be immersive, entertaining and very, very memorable," Bouquet said.
Encounters: U.F.O. Experience will be open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays from April 3 to May 30, 2014. They'll open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sundays through Wednesdays May 31 through September 2, 2014. Ticket prices are $10 for adults and $8 for children if purchased on their website.
