We got there just in time to catch the next tour so there was no wait at all. We did miss some of the video presentation but our guide made up for what we missed. She was very interesting to listen to and quite knowledgeable. She said something very memorable before we went out. The missiles facilities were built in 29 months with the intention of never having to fire them. They were built as show of power to the rest of the world. In other words, "Anything you can do, I can do better". They were built to create peace, and it worked. It made me thankful that the plan worked. They took us out to where the entrance to the bunker was.
It was quite a process to get to the point of turning the key to launch the missile. They had to be 100% sure that it was necessary before it was done. Lots of people had to approve it before it happened and lots of communication took place as well. This was basically a communication center as well as a control center for the missile.
