Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Station Reviews & Ratings
Pretty cool place. Let me walk in and shake everyone's hand! Will take the family soon
Dont forget your security clearance. OMG the freakin parking. Ughhh
Well, iam not sure, they were all very nice, and seemed quite focused at their stations, even the general though seemed to become upset when I turned this key thing, thinking it was stuck, well, apparently, not stuck. A red light came on so I pressed that hoping it would turn before he saw the red light. Then all of sudden the floor began to vibrate, uh, oh, I thought, Mr. General man, said, “get the president on the phone, now” well, my tour group was leaving, so I duct into the men’s room, with a bead of sweat on my brow, thinking whew, that was close, I heard a bunch of people scurrying about in the halls and very loud noises, then all of sudden I heard this serious sounding voice over the speakers saying ......
Loved the STARGATE tour
I was shot in the shin, elbow, shoulder, hip, foot and arm by a Canadian guy in grey camoflauge holding an M4A1 rifle. On a serious note, thanks for everything you do for not only North America, but the world. Thanks, NORAD!
