Rich People Are Hunkering Down For The Apocalypse In Incredibly Elaborate Bunkers

High living during low times.

The apocalypse: Not exactly fun to think about. BUT! If you HAVE to consider it, why not think about where you might live out your last days?


Now, when you think of a bunker, you probably think of some kinda Cold War underground lair, or that horrible place Kimmy Schimdt and her sister wives were forced to live with Jon Hamm.


But for THE RICH? A nuclear apocalypse or world war or whatever is no reason to downgrade.

Bunker manufacturers like Rising S Company and Vivos are creating underground bunkers with ~all the amenities.~

Do you want pool tables? Sure.

A custom kitchen in which to enjoy your canned rations? Why not.

Rising S Bunkers' Aristocrat bunker will run you $8,350,000, but it's so worth it:

It includes sleeping for 50 people; five individual residence bunkers; five bathrooms with showers; a gym and fitness center; a bowling alley; a game room; a sauna; an indoor (ha!) firing range; a swimming pool and hot tub; and a green house, among many, many other amenities.

If you're rich, but not "housing-50-people-during-a-nuclear-sandstorm" rich, then maybe you want the Venetian bunker. It sleeps 22 people.

While this one doesn't include a pool or sauna, for $3,290,000 you can have your own health and gym complex.

And if you haven't been saving for your bunker for THAT long, but still have a pretty nice Bunker Nest Egg set up, perhaps this bunker from Vivos might work for you. They've created a shelter that accommodates 80 people, and there a few spots left.

The cost to claim your spot? $35,000.

Vivos has higher end options, too. There's the Vivos xPoint, which looks like this on the inside.

Vivos xPoint is actually a grouping of 575 private bunkers that are located on an 18 square mile property in Southwest South Dakota.

And the Vivos Europa.

According to the website it's an elite shelter located "in the heart of Europe" and "carved out of solid bedrock." Vivos has been building this property for nearly 15 years.

Its renderings include a rather medieval looking chapel.

Luxury shelters are about "surviving to have the opportunity to come out on the other side of the event, and be part of the next phase of humanity," Vivos media director Barbi Grossman told BuzzFeed.

Interest in luxe bunkers has risen a ton in the last six months, claims Grossman, "due to the onslaught of threats that are now very evident to the entire world."

"People are sensing that all hell is about to break loose, from North Korea to the Middle East, the potential of WW3, an economic collapse, and major Earth changes from what is believed to be Nibiru/Planet X," she continued.

In case you're wondering, you can read all about Planet X, Nibiru, and other "prophecies" on the Vivos website.

And if THAT doesn't soothe your soul, let Grossman's take on the sure-to-be-coming end times comfort you:

"We are living in very dangerous times, making the need to have a bunker life-assurance solution a must-have, for those who want to survive the events and have the opportunity to come out on the other side."
