    Alcatraz Island

    Not expecting many replies here but has anyone been to Alcatraz Island and visited the prison?

    I've always been fascinated by the myth, I fancy going, just wondering if anyone has been and if they have an experience to share?

    I've been to alcatraz!! Back when i was 14 years old. I enjoyed my day out there, wicked fun looking round the whole prison.

    You can/could even pay to be kept in the cells for a night!!

    Would make an interesting day out though for sure.

    Yeah i have been mate, brilliant place with amazing history . We booked it through tower tours(google them) in san fran, we got it lucky with the weather and the views are amazing from the island back to san fran and towards the golden gate.

    You NEED to book before you go as its so popular as you can imagine...but defo worth it.

    drop me a PM if you need more info

    Hasn't that bit of the river got emense currents? and they say that it's very unlikely that anyone who may of escaped, will of made it to shore safely.

    Yeah also been, loved walking round with the head phones on listening to all that used to go on there, after going there i read the auto-biography of Al Capone. I would go back there anyday such a cool place and as said San Fran is awsome, could just stand around watching seals for ages
