Have you ever walked through the bunker and thought, “Wow, this would be a great place for a party!”? Well you’re not alone! A lot of people don’t realize that you can rent out a variety of rooms in the bunker for your special event. It’s not all school tours and art exhibits, we’ve done everything from Holiday parties to movie filming!
WARNING: The gallery below may invoke feelings of inspiration and the need to plan a party. We apologize for any excessive time spent on pinterest that may occur due to this blog post. Viewer discretion is advised.

Nothing says ‘I Do’ like tying the knot 75 feet underground. The bunker can accommodate up to 120 people (sitting) and offers a unique location for adventurous newlyweds. Whether you’re looking for indoor or outdoor, we have the means to make your special day a blast!

Birthday Parties
Is Chuck e Cheese just not doing it for you anymore? Do you have a milestone birthday coming up and no ideas? Try out the bunker and it’s unique location! Kids will learn the art of espionage and crack the codes to find Agent X while adults can make a dash for survival!

Office Parties
The holidays are coming and we know what it’s like trying to find a great place for your annual office party. You could rent out the same old location you do every year or you could remind them how lucky they are to work above ground by celebrating the end of the year underground! With a room large enough to accommodate 120 people the possibilities are endless! Don’t bore them with same old location, try the facility that protected our nation!

Corporate Rentals
Picture this: You’re presenting to a group of associates on a  project you’ve been working on for months. You’re proud of your work and know how important the information is to the company. You look out into the crowd and realize EVERYONE is on their phones, not paying attention…
This problem could have been avoided if you’d rented a space in the Diefenbunker! Located 75 feet underground the bunker receives no cell service ensuring your colleagues stay focused and on task throughout your meeting!
