Does someone have some information about Cheyenne Mountain Complex? According to wikipedia information, this place become unavailable for tourists in early 80's. So, what's inside there?

It used to be the headquarters of NORAD.  Now the equipment is largely obsolete.  The US military tried to mothball the place years ago but Congress elected to keep it's options open and put it into caretaker status.  Everything (like entire rooms) is mounted on gigantic springs and dampers.  The mountain was designed to withstand a direct hit by all but the largest of nuclear devices.  It's a wild place to go into.
