North of Wichita, the bunker is a repurposed US government missile silo
It goes deep underground…
15 storeys deep, in fact, and it can survive a nuclear blast
The mega-bunker is full of luxury condos that turn surviving the Apocalypse into thriving underground
The bunker can hold up to 75 people (12 families) and has enough resources for them to survive up to 5 years
The 20k-square-foot project has everything that’s needed to live through a doomsday scenario
The project has redundant electric sources so there’s enough power no matter what happens
Inside, there’s everything that you’ll ever need (and you won’t get bored easily)
There’s even a general store inside the mega-bunker
Fans of the cinema will be glad to know there’s a home theater here as well
The condos have all the appliances and comforts you’d expect from a home
The exact location of the repurposed missile silo is a well-kept secret
Security is the name of the game and there’s even a command and control center
There’s a lift that can take you to any floor you need
And a pool to cool off and get some cardio exercise in
Not to mention a rock climbing wall…
…and a gym, so you can leave the bunker fitter than you went in, hopefully
Here are some more pics from inside the project
The kitchens look modern and stylish
While the bedrooms are comfy and don’t look like something underground
There’s enough room for all of your things
And there’s even a medical center in case you have any health issues
Some of the passageways look like they wouldn’t be out of place in a metro station
Did we mention the place has a gun range? Not a bad idea if there’s ever a Zombie Apocalypse
They also installed aquaponic farming systems
Here’s a few more photos showing the various nooks and crannies of the project
Dog lovers will be glad to know there’s a park for their best buddies
And there are plenty of activities for everyone else during downtime, too
For those of us who love books, we’re in luck! There’s an underground library, too
Whether it’s a global pandemic, a nuclear disaster, Mother Nature throwing disaster after disaster our way, or a financial collapse, having 9-feet-thick walls and being 15 stories underground can make you feel safe.
According to Business Insider, Larry Hall bought the missile silo for 300k back in 2008 and immediately began work on turning it into a high-end bunker. Hall and his team spent nearly 20 million dollars on the project that allows 12 families to survive even a direct nuclear impact.
The bunker has everything that you’d expect from something as high-end as this: it has 3 redundant power supplies, 3 separate water sources, a water filtration system, aquaponic farming, as well as hydroponic food. It sounds like something out of a sci-fi movie, but it’s reality.
Of course, just having the bare minimum things for survival is no way to live. So the bunker also comes with a gym, swimming pool, movie theater, rock climbing wall, and… even a dog park. So it’s safe to say that you’re bound to come out of the bunker fitter than you went in.
Hall explained that discipline, productivity, and keeping busy are incredibly important for keeping things running and for mental health. So he suggests that people work 4-hour days and rotate jobs every month.
