Was a little nervous about going as I do not like to be terrified, yet opted for tickets that allowed touching & potential kidnapping. The atmosphere at the furnace was as advertised - eerie. The passages were narrow & dark. As the group followed the...More

It IS pet friendly - says the self-guided tour map I got 8/2018. There are ‘pet waste systems’ and pet bowls at the drink stations! Pets must be leashed please and not allowed inside the visitor center.
