Looking for a place to hole up when the zombie apocalypse hits? You’ll have to find somewhere else, because the zombie-proof condos in Kansas (made out of converted a nuclear ballistic missile silo) are now all sold out.
According to Survival Condo, some of the key features of these condos (you can either buy a half a floor for up to 5 people for $1,000,000 or a full floor for up to 10 people for $2,000,000) include:
- Walls 2.5 to 9 Feet Thick
- Monolithic Dome Cap
- Wind Turbine
- Solar Panels
- Hydroponic Food
- Military Grade Security
- Indoor Pool & Spa
- Exercise Facility
- Classroom & Library
- Movie Theater
- Minor Surgery Center
- Biometric Locks
- Digital Weather Station
Because even though you’re dealing with the apocalypse, you should live in extravagance while worrying about the zombies beating on your door, right? Okay, maybe not zombies but there are tons of other environmental threats that might make you wish for a safe place such as intense weather (i.e. hurricanes, tornadoes, drought, ,etc) or even the eruption of supervolcanoes.
I thought some of features were cool. Like the fact they have their own own Remotely Piloted Vehicle (RPV). Apparently It can
fly as high as 5,000 ft. and has a range of 100 miles and is equipped with high-resolution visible light and thermal imaging camera systems.
Huh. Good for scoping out zombies? That is, if zombies show up on thermal imaging. I’d imagine they would have no body heat since they’re usually dead and all.
I also thought the state-of-the-art hydroponic and aquaculture capabilities to produce fresh organic food and grow fish was a good idea. I mean, you need to get food from somewhere if you’re not going to be going back up to the surface. According to the site, the systems are automated with automatic nutrient monitoring systems and temperature controls.
Still, despite all these very cool items, I can’t help but wonder what failsafe plans they might have their wind turbines and solar panels stop working. Those people would be trapped down there and all security would come down (to a point I suppose). Then what will they do if a zombie gets in? Didn’t they have something like this on Resident Evil and it turned out horrible?
Don’t worry however, there are still options of finding shelter during an apocalypse, such as Ark Two near Toronto, Ontario. Built in 1980 to prepare for a nuclear war, the shelter is 10,000 square feet, composed of 42 school buses, which were buried underground. You can find a map of the interior of the shelter here, and pictures by clicking on individual links here.
Where would you go during an apocalypse?
