The ‘Ark’ is buried 130 feet below the Earth’s surface and carved out of a small mountain made of solid limestone. It’s the vision of Robert Vicino, founder of The Vivos Group, and will cater to “preparedness minded families” who prefer to sit out apocalyptic events in style. Whether this small Kansas town likes it or not, a bold new sanctuary for the end times has arrived.
Known locally to Atchison residents for years as “The Caves”, the site was originally under the control of the U.S. Government until recently. It was previously used as a high security storage facility for the US Army and Defense Department. One of the site’s landfills has a confirmed toxic leak, possibly from several years as an ammunition and missile silo. Its design is ideal for storage of highly classified Defense Department documents and files.
The last few months have seen a flurry of activity at the site. In April of 2013 the U.S. Government sold the property to MO-KAN Underground, a group of investors from Springfield, MO. According to their website, they are actively “seeking businesses who are interested in developing this property.”
It appears they have their first customer. The Vivos Group, a company that started out selling the apocalypse by building a network of luxury bunkers underground called “Vivos”, has now doubled-down on their vision by creating the largest private shelter on Earth.

For Immediate Release:
Shelter as Big as the Empire State Building to Save One in Every Million People
Not just a shelter, but a year-round ‘survival resort’.
Atchison, Kansas, June 13, 2013 – A massive underground complex encompassing over 2 million square feet is now being outfitted as the largest private shelter on Earth. The latest in a network of shelters built by The Vivos Group, this ‘Ark’ is also the first of its kind, being dubbed the Vivos Survival Shelter & Resort. The huge complex will not only accommodate more than 5,000 people for a minimum of one year of autonomous survival, but will also be open to its members as a year-round resort offering its co-owner members the opportunity to vacation at the shelter anytime they desire.
Robert Vicino, founder and CEO of Vivos, states: “When completed, it will remain ready as the ultimate life-assurance shelter for its co-owner members to seek refuge from virtually anything mankind or nature may throw our way.” Complete with all the amenities of a 4 star hotel, and a long list of recreational activities, owners and their families will be safe and protected, without the need to return to the surface for a minimum of one year in the event of disaster. The former government complex is located nearly 130 feet below the surface and carved out of a solid limestone mountain. Due to its unique composition, its structure is 6 times stronger than standard concrete. “We know of no larger shelter other than the reported secret government bunkers, that unfortunately are not accessible by the general public,” Vicino added.
The fortress will survive virtually any predictable disaster or catastrophic event including: nuclear fallout, biological agents, chemical war gases, a viral pandemic, super volcanic ash, an electro-magnetic pulse (EMP), X-Class coronal mass ejections (CME’s), extreme weather and earth changes, and even manmade disasters: from an economic meltdown, to total anarchy. This complex has full-time security, protection devices, hardened air handling systems, and several enormous blast doors.
“At full capacity, the ˝ mile long underground complex will save the lives of nearly 1 in every 1 million people on Earth, along with the storage of precious museum artifacts and treasures, DNA and gamete cells of thousands frozen within a series of cryovaults, volumes of data, books, movies and more,” Vicino added.
As a resort, this Vivos complex will become an attraction for families wanting to mingle with like-minded members, while providing their children a host of recreational, educational, and even survival activities, both above, on the park-like grounds and below, within the constant 70 degree temperature of the shelter. Activities will include: golf, rock climbing, a ropes course, martial arts training, a gym, tennis, basketball, and volleyball courts, a baseball field, a bowling alley, bike riding and mountain biking, rollerblading, a skate park, an underground 5K marathon course, field games, boating and rafting, survival classes, gun and archery ranges, paintball, horseback riding, ATV trails, and a pool with a waterslide.
