    Bump from the dead.

    George Graves brought this to my attention in the pictures thread. As it often does, the discussion (and photos) turned to abandoned nuclear power. I thought I'd share.

    Abandoned Nuclear Power Plant, Cuba Wiki.

It definitely got the adrenaline flowing as we approached! It's not abandoned, as somebody takes the time to groom it but I didn't see any evidence that it has been used. Ever!

    I think top gear used it in the episode across America.

    Forgotten Planet is a great show, too bad it was only one season. Couple of the sites the feature are a bit of a re-hash like Pripyat and Salton City, and they left out Centralia, PA, which would have been interesting.

    Googled it. Seems it was set for demo in 2013?

    Sad....looks like a kick ass place!

    They keep threatening, but it's still there. Cost to demo is like $4 million that they dont have.

I havent been there in years, but used to go party and play paintball out there occasionally in my younger days. Always had the feeling of being watched .... :-|

    I started watching last night. It's a bit dramatic, but not bad.
