The prison was referred to as "The Walls Maximum Security Prison" in both episodes to protect the location's privacy.
The guards were not a problem for us we fought them off with our bare hands. Someone would say the guards were never seen again.
I live in Nashville and you actually can't get to this place anymore, they have armed guards blocking off the entrance
Guard was super nice and we learned to read the reviews before trying to visit places hahaha.
The guards turn you around immediately and will not even let you take a picture without filling out a contract in pain money like your movie producer something.
Looks like Disneyland.
I've been on several different video shoots on this location. The inside is in horrible disrepair. Its really unsafe now to go in.
