I am sooo glad we went to the guide led tour of the prison during the day. It is a fascinating piece of history. The guide was excellent as were the "5 minutes hands on history" presentations. It really makes you think about our "corrections" system - what it was supposed to be and where we are now.
At night, we went to Terror Behind the Walls. Very professional, really well done. 45 minutes long. While it wasn't very "scary" it was more about being startled. Don't be *afraid* to go. It's really well done - very professional.
One tip: skip the "ghost bus" parking. Park on the street.
We parked in the lot next to the prison and left the car. Did the 2 pm prison tour, went for a long (great) dinner at La Calaca Feliz, then went back for Terror Behind the Walls. When we left, that lot was JAMMED full. The street seems very safe - and free.
