Ever want to ride an ATV into an abandoned mine? Well, now you can! I found this very unique park designed specifically for ATV riders that incorporates as part of its course, an abandoned limestone mine! It is located in Wampum, PA. "Imagine riding in total darkness guided only by your own headlights. Twisting through an underground labyrinth that seems to go on forever." advertises the website. Robert J. Svihra, a devout "risk taker" sank $2 million into developing this above and below ground ATV resort. Take a look...

Just use your self-rescuer and you'll be fine.

That is kind of wild. I guess with enough ventilation it might not be too bad. Some of these limestone mines are pretty big with lots of air flow and air entries, perhaps it isn't so bad.

You just have to wonder if that mine has to be or not have to be inspected. I doubt if it is hard rock since it is exit 13 on the turnpike.
