Don't just cruise past. You need to go inside to fully appreciate the UFO. Look for the aliens with the beer cooler and little boy being beamed up.[Kim Wheeler, 03/31/2013]
I visited in December, 2009. The UFO is still in place on the roof; reports of its demise are premature. Inside the building it looks like an alien takeover. They looted the place after the crash because many of the green guys are carrying eggs, milk, soda pop, etc. This is the most fun c-store I've ever been to.

Coyote's Flying Saucer Retrieval and Repair Service: Philosophical close encounter with entrepreneur Coyote at his desert UFO repair business. Watch Video.
A guy named "Coyote" parks his UFO repair trucks and spare saucers outside the entrance to Desert View Tower. Roadsideamerica.com Report...
We just stopped here yesterday on our way to the sand dunes. We saw it on the map and laughingly said we should stop. When we got toward the tower we became more and more intrigued, mostly due to all of the shiny objects and satellite dishes scattered around. We pulled in, paid our five dollars per car and started on our UFO journey.
We were promptly greeted by Judy and her two charming dogs. She was so nice and took the time to show us around. My son will forever be a part of the site as he put a Yoda in the garden. He made no special requests of the alien vortex however. This has been one of the highlights of our trip and would highly recommend the time to stop. We don't necessarily believe in UFOs, but haven't ruled it out either. Judy was just a very nice person to be with and hear her stories.[Jen, 07/23/2011]
