Secret Underground Tunnels In The US?

Sat May 18, 2002 2:59 am

Is it true that there hundreds of miles of secret underground tunnels and complexes across the US, specially in the west? Is this true or is it plain fantasy?

There is no "proof" persay, but their is evidence out there that would lead one to believe there is a vast tunnel system. Some of which carry the supposed Mag-Lev very high speed train.

Don't know about USA, but this is almost true in Lithuania.

We have many even now secret underground tunnels made back in middle ages, when Lithuanian GD was from Baltic to Black see, all accross Europe. Tunnels are all under Vilnius let's say, some were excavated but most are still sectret.It is believed that there is a tunnel between Vilnius and Trakai castles, which was planned to use for possible evacuation if one of castles would be lost. Other tunnels were used for dead bodies, also for drenage and water supply. Once government allowed works for archeolos in tunnels (back in USSR times), but then they just suddenly forbidden all works and bricked off tunnels wich were opened. Even my house is believed to be connected to tunnels, it has 2 floors of huge bricked up cellars.

Yep...You got us. They're abandoned now and are used to play "ultimate" paintball wars...normally anywhere between 800-1300 people on a side, complete with an entire support structure (tracked and 4x4 vehicles, field housing, NVG, etc.) They are usually staged out of a small town in Nevada called Ely. Games last 4-5 day, so most people schedule a week and to Las Vegas before or after. Large groups get special gaming groups rates on Southwest or National.

If these tunnels do exist, what are they used for?

I know there were some in Utah/Nevada to experiment with the underground ICBM system in the early 70's...basically missles on launch platforms that were transported on underground trains. Silos for launch were randomly space to confuse the Soviets I guess.

I would have thought that they would have been abondoned/destroyed years ago...

Auswfn....so glad you don't work for our firm...

There was a rumor that there was a secret underground tunnel from our middle school to our high school. I never had the chance to explore it. There was a dungeon type place underneath our high school where all the wacky theater people hung out. They did all kinds of crazy stuff that I am not at liberty to discuss.

I'm not sure this is the kind of tunnel you are talking about though.

Whooa...seems like i have mistaken these tunnels for something else. I read somewhere that the tunnels were used for experimenting captured UFO's or crafts.

Sounds whacky? I know!

I have recently read a book that talks about that but in Athens, Greece, not in USA.

There are thirty kilometres of underground tunnels in western Poland, built as part of the German Ostwall fortifications before WWII. You can take guided tours on sections of it nowadays--there was an underground railway system, factories, hospitals, etc. By the end of the war, the Nazis were manning it with teenagers and old men. The Russians got around it in four days. All the key equipment was of course removed by the postwar Polish gov't and the Red Army, after the territory came under provisional and then permanent Polish administration. Definitely worth a daytrip from Berlin. Since the war, the Ostwall has also been colonised by bats and now accomodates the largest population of hibernating bats in Europe. Here's the link: http://www.ostwall.swiebodzin.pl

For natural caverns, the karst caves of Slovenia are well worth a visit.

Actually, these secret tunnels were built in the 19th. century as part of the "underground railway" (you've all learned about that in US history class, right?). It stretched all the way from the deep South to Canada, and were built to help slaves escape. Of course, when the Civil War ended the slaves were freed, but due to the inclement climate in the North and in Canada, these tunnels were retained for general transportation and defense use.

Of course, today they are used for the purposes noted in the posts above.
