They are currently selling space in a luxury bunker in Europe that features wall-sized screens, a salon and a massive pool. The already dated looking suburban style communal living shelter in Indiana is almost completely booked. And their most recent option is a repurposed military facility called X-Point in South Dakota. X-Point features $25,000 bunkers situated in an “epic, secure, off-grid, high-altitude survival community” with what is described as “like-minded” people. Their shelters are marketed with the language and graphics of a gated community timeshare combined with a sense of inevitability that one of the SHTF scenarios described (Killer Comet, Planet X, Bio War etc) is just around the corner.
