7 Of The Craziest Survival Shelters You’ve Ever Seen

As preppers, most of us are typically a sucker for survival shelters.  These good old-fashioned “bomb shelters” are not only fun to look at, but they’re also insanely useful in a major crisis.

It’s the dream of every survivalists to have a bunker they can disappear in when things go bad. That’s why we wrote an article highlighting some of the coolest ones ever.

These survival shelters are absolutely amazing. Some of them are built into caves…others are under large fields…and still others are made entirely up of old missile silos.

However, there’s s caveat to all this brilliance. Despite the cost of the materials, none of the builders of these shelters would dare sell these shelters for less than $1,000,000.

Ouch, I know. But once you see them, you’ll start to understand why all of them are to be envied.

Even if you can’t purchase one of these survival shelters on your own, you can stare longingly at the ones below anyway. Who knows – they may even give you some ideas on building your own some day!

7 Of the Craziest Survival Shelters You’ve Ever Seen

1 – Noah’s Ark: Take Two

survival shelters

When a Chinese man was preparing for the 2012 Mayan apocalypse, he went a few steps further than any other prepper, and began building his very own model of the classic Noah’s Ark.

Lu Zhenghai, the builder, paid about $160,000 for this boat. It’s about 65 feet long, and weighs approximately 80 tons.

Zhenghai says his fears of a doomsday flood were the motivation for his completion of this task. He was afraid for his and his family’s survival through the storm. So he made the rational decision to “pull a Noah” and built his own ark in order to keep everyone dry.

According to FMN (a Chinese news site),  it took 10 tons of timber and 60 tons of steel to make this epic shelter. Unfortunately, last time we checked, it still has yet to reach completion.

Thankfully, Zhenghai’s fears never came to reality, and the flood did not happen. Hopefully he’ll finish the ark so we can see the results!

2 – The Doomsday Corrugated Pipe Bunker

The Atlas Survival Shelter is so durable that it’ll withstand tornadoes, hurricanes, and most other natural disaster the environment can throw at it.

Built from corrugated pipe, this underground bunker is meant to live about 20 feet under the earth’s surface. Which makes sense, because in most emergencies, the safest place to be is underground.

As survival shelters go, this one is pretty sweet. It’s got bunk beds with storage compartments, a kitchen with sink and countertops, electrical outlets, toilets, an escape hatch, low voltage electric lights, and mudrooms that contain a lockable interior door.

Want more? It’s also got a flatscreen TV, water tanks that store up to 5,000 gallons of water, shortwave radios, up to 500 gallon fuel storage tanks, camera surveillance, DVD player, solar panels, power-generating exercise bikes, and red oak beds and cabinets.

3 – The Bunker Under The Resort

During the time of the Cold War, the U.S government built an underground shelter in the West Virginia mountains. Known as “Project Greek Island,” the bunker was top secret, and was a place where members of the Hour and Senate could go to in the event of a nuclear attack.

However, in 1993 an investigative reporter found the shelter and made the knowledge public. Although nobody uses the bunker anymore (to our knowledge), the shelter reminds us of a sobering time when the U.S was under threat of a Soviet nuclear attack.

4 – The Billionaire Bunker

From the outside, Al Corbi’s home in the Hollywood Hills appears to be a slightly strange, extremely expensive residence – not completely unlike others in the area. However, it turns out this home has much more in common with the NSA headquarters than with any other home on its block.

That’s because this residence contains biometric recognition software, which recognizes the owners (and prevents others from getting in) so that there’s no need for door keys. There’s also zero danger of being hit by earthquakes here, due to the home’s steel-reinforced concrete caissons, burrowing 30 feet into the private hilltop on which the home stands.

Not to mention, the residence is really a “home within a home,” seeing as it also contains a 2,500 square foot ballistics-proof panic suite.

Not surprisingly, the owner is the founder of SAFE (Strategically Armored Fortified Environments) – a security megafirm.

5 – The Luxury Home With A Hidden Bunker

On the outside, this Las Vegas home looks like every other surrounding it. However, what the neighbors don’t know is that there’s a very secret survival bunker hiding underneath the residence.

Buried deep underground, this 15,200 square foot bunker is essentially a time capsule from the 1970’s. It features pink toilets and kitchen trim, green AstroTurf, and a painted scene on the walls reminiscent of the countryside (complete with rolling hills).

But it’s not just for show – there’s lots of activities to keep you busy while the crises occur up-top. These include a four-hole putting green, dance floor, BBQ grill, sauna, swimming pool, and two hot tubs. It’s even got adjustable light settings during the day, helping you set the mood for each activity.

Last time we checked, the Hendersons (who had built the shelter) had died, and a relative took over. When the most recent over had to foreclose on it, the bunker was on sale for a cool $1.7 million.

6 -The Doomsday Castle

According to Brent Burns (the creator of the Doomsday Castle), the world will go under because of an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) that will wipe out the entire power grid. As a result, we’ll find ourselves instantly back into the Dark Ages, floundering to survive.

In order to prepare for this event, the Burns family have built an enormous castle in the woods of South Carolina. The resident contains everything we all know and love about castles: a drawbridge, portcullis, and of course an underground survival shelter.

But that’s not all. The Burns family is taking it a step further by training with medieval weapons, such as swords, catapults, and crossbows. They believe these are the essential survival weapons to own, since they require zero electricity to function. With enough training, the family will learn to adequately protect themselves when attackers come to their door (er…drawbridge).

You may recognize the Burns family (in the picture above) – word got out about their survival castle, and they became stars of the National Geographic show, Doomsday Castle.

7 – The $2 Million Condos

This option is the last for a reason – it’s known by many as “the most luxurious way to sit out the apocalypse.” At the time of this project’s completion, there was a waiting list of buyers to purchase one of these condos. At the time, each one was selling for a cool $2 million. Just let that sink in for a minute.

Along with up-to-date modern conveniences, the condos also feature a movie theater, a library, and a pool. They also have impenetrable 9 ft thick concrete walls, spanning about 174 feet long. These walls were made to stay standing should an atomic blast occur.

Oh..and one more thing – according to the seller, each condo offers a GUARANTEE that they will survive when the apocalypse/doomsday/ultimate SHTF event occurs.

The condos are buried deep underground in Kansas, within the shaft of a missile silo that was abandoned long ago. As such, these luxury bunkers are built to handle any kind of survival situation. Economic collapse, EMP, solar flares, nuclear warfare, terrorist attacks, pandemics, you name it – you have a guarantee to survive it in one of these epic survival condos.

Mayorkas in Hot Seat For Allegedly Encouraging Illegals to Vote for Biden

secretary-alejandro-mayorkas-department-homeland-security1

During a recent congressional budget hearing, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas found himself under intense scrutiny by Rep. Dan Bishop (R-NC) concerning a deeply troubling allegation. The Heritage Foundation’s Oversight Project reported the discovery of a flyer, purportedly from Resource Center Matamoros, which brazenly encourages migrants to vote for President Joe Biden, promising, “We need another four years of his term to stay open.” This inflammatory material, allegedly found by independent journalists in Mexico and reported by Muckraker, raises grave concerns about the integrity of our electoral process.

The flyer, still unverified by mainstream media outlets and missing from the Resource Center Matamoros’s official resources, points to a potential scandal of significant proportions. The implications are severe—suggesting a concerted effort to manipulate U.S. elections by influencing the migrant population, a group explicitly ineligible to participate in our voting system.

Rep. Bishop confronted Mayorkas directly: “The Heritage Foundation Oversight Project has released this document that is allegedly a flyer distributed by a non-governmental organization in Mexico called the Resource Center Matamoros … which is said to read, in part, if translated, ‘Reminder to vote for President Biden when you are in the United States. We need another four years of his term to stay open,'” illustrating a critical lapse in border security and immigration enforcement under the current administration.

Mayorkas’s response was both dismissive and inadequate, stating that “individuals who are not citizens of the United States cannot vote in federal elections” and claiming that DHS does not oversee election enrollments but merely enforces border policies. However, this response starkly highlights the core issue—the Biden administration’s lax enforcement and oversight policies, which have allowed millions, including two million undocumented ‘got-aways,’ to potentially exploit loopholes in the electoral registration process.

Secretary Mayorkas and the Biden administration must be held accountable for their role in what appears to be a flagrant disregard for the laws that safeguard both our borders and our ballots. This incident is not an isolated blip but a symptom of a broader, more disturbing trend under Secretary Mayorkas’s DHS: a deliberate softening of immigration policies that seem designed to favor political over practical interests.

It’s imperative for the integrity of our democratic process that thorough investigations are conducted. If migrants are indeed being instructed, implicitly or explicitly, to support a particular political outcome, such actions must be met with the full force of the law. We must demand more than lackluster assurances from our leaders; we need concrete actions and transparent accountability to restore faith in our immigration system and electoral integrity.

Biden’s Blunders: Scripted Leadership in Crisis Times?

arlington-va-usa-may-29-2023

Once again, President Biden has been caught on camera, not trusting his own words during crucial moments. During a recent Oval Office meeting with Iraq’s Prime Minister, while the world reels from a violent missile and drone attack by Iran on Israel, Biden couldn’t step away from his pre-written scripts.

Photographs reveal that Biden, aged 81, resorted to a detailed cheat sheet, which embarrassingly included all-caps stage directions for pausing, allowing for translation. This was during his first public address since the devastating attack on Israel over the weekend. The contrast was stark next to Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia’a Al-Sudani, who spoke freely, without the aid of notes.

Instead of addressing the nation live while missiles were still threatening lives, the White House chose to “call a lid” early in the evening, opting only to release staged photos of Biden in the Situation Room. It was only after the immediate crisis had eased that Biden communicated with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to express U.S. support, and convened a discussion with G7 leaders—again, following the script too cautiously, reportedly urging Netanyahu to limit Israel’s response, seemingly more worried about political optics than decisive leadership.

In public, Biden stated, “The United States is committed to Israel’s security…We are committed to a cease-fire that will bring the hostages home and prevent the conflict from spreading further.” Yet, these words, read from his script, now ring hollow, reflecting a pattern of relying on scripted safety nets even in supposedly spontaneous discussions.

This tendency to lean heavily on pre-written prompts was noted not only in moments of international crisis but also in less formal settings like private fundraisers, causing discomfort among his own supporters, as per reports from Axios.

As crises unfold, the leader of the free world should be expected to address his nation and the world with conviction and authenticity, not hide behind carefully curated words. The frequent appearance of Biden’s cheat sheets raises concerning questions about his ability to lead through unscripted challenges—where real leadership is tested not by the ability to follow a script, but to speak from the heart and adapt with strength.

Migrant Invaders Brazenly Charge at Swimmers in Speedboat

juarez-mexico-12212022-hundreds-migrants-wait

In a blatant affront to American sovereignty, a dozen illegal immigrants executed a dangerous and illegal invasion of our shores, arriving at a California beach via speedboat with reckless disregard for the safety of Americans enjoying their leisure time. One surfer narrowly escaped harm as the vessel tore through the water at high speeds, a clear symbol of the contempt these lawbreakers hold for our laws and our people.

This latest episode in Carlsbad, a mere 30 miles north of San Diego, is a chilling reminder of the organized lawlessness that is being orchestrated across our borders. Once ashore, these illegal entrants scurried toward luxury vehicles, suggesting a level of premeditation and support that borders on an invasion facilitated by criminal networks.

Compounding the audacity of this episode was the abject failure of local law enforcement to respond, leaving law-abiding citizens to fend for themselves. Such incidents underscore a terrifying erosion of law and order, signaling to criminals everywhere that our borders are open for exploitation.

This incident is not an anomaly but a stark representation of a broader crisis fueled by a border policy that might as well hang a welcome sign for criminals and opportunists. The alarming influx of illegal crossings, particularly in the San Diego sector—where nearly 7,000 breaches were reported last week alone—is a direct result of deliberate inaction and misguided policies that invite chaos and endanger American lives.

The economic and social strain this unchecked immigration inflicts on our communities is unsustainable. The closure of local migrant shelters, once hemorrhaging millions of taxpayer dollars monthly, is a testament to the fiscal burden imposed by these continuous waves of illegal entrants. This burden has now shifted to our airports and bus stations, turning them into makeshift shelters and degrading the quality of life for residents and tourists alike.

It is evident that our current administration lacks the will to address this crisis effectively. The projected figures are a dire warning: with over 8 million people potentially on our streets, including two million with criminal intentions, the situation is nothing short of a national emergency.

Congress must act with urgency to secure our borders and overhaul an immigration system that has been exploited far too long. We need robust enforcement of our immigration laws, substantial penalties for those who violate them, and an end to policies that encourage illegal entry into our country. The time for tolerance of this disorder is over. The safety, security, and sovereignty of the United States must be enforced rigorously and without apology. We must protect American citizens and the integrity of our nation.
