One of the first things you will experience is a block of cells in the same building as where you enter. Many of these cells have reported paranormal activity and then there is the solitary cell under the stairs. I honestly could not enter any of them for fear that I would feel a scratch on my shoulder and not be able to find the source. However, the history of this cell block was rich, and the different stories told by our tour guide were intriguing. In this first cell block, I highly recommend that you do try and experience standing in one of the cells, even though I did not.
As we progressed, we came to Housing Unit 3. The middle of the entire building was open and featured catwalks that ran all the way up to the top floor. As with the entire penitentiary, the history of this cell block was also rich, and I guarantee you will immediately want to climb up the stairs to walk across the catwalks. I promise you will get the chance, but only about 5 minutes’ worth because they have to keep the tours on time. When they allow you to explore the cell block, make it up to the top floor. The catwalks are a perfect photo opportunity if you can get the lighting to work in your favor.
