Wow! This looks incredibly interesting! I can't believe that abandoned prisons have now become a center for touristic attraction. Not only can tourist inspect the cells while listening to an audio tape but some of these prisons even have restaurants and hotels for visitors to stay in and experience ghost tours! How exciting! We went from visiting gold covered cathedrals to abandoned ghost-infested prisons. I wonder what will be next….
