  • It was fun. A little creepy. Guide could have used a little seasoning, but l'm sure she'll get better. 10 bucks? I dunno. It's for vacation, right?
  • Probably one of the coolest spots to check out in the entire town. And there's not very many spots here worth checking out. One of those places you really gotta see for yourself in order to get the full effect. If you like the darker side of history come to Rawlins, WY and check out the old Pen. They offer tours year round and they do a haunted house style tour on halloween. Can't really describe a place like this gotta see for yourself. It's fricking RAD ! You wont be disappointed, I promise you.
  • Fantastic guided tour. Loved every minute
  • Very interesting. Has both a gallows (reconstructed) and gas chamber 😱
  • Too expensive. Couldn't afford to go inside. Outside looks neat though...
