Me and my dad took a 3 day trip with my grandma who's also interested just to see it. It was great! All the gauges were there and everything! Except, a bit dissapointing, it's a guided tour that doesn't last so long, and the tour guides are very un-learned and unenthusiastic. Great see for all of those really interested. They're huge! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif http://i19.tinypic.com/33vp5hj.jpg http://i7.tinypic.com/301eofo.jpg

Yeah, the tour guides are really specialists about what they do (sarcasm), they just give em some random facts that people might want to know. Though I live less then 20 miles away, I havnt seen the U-505 for over 4 years, I keep meaning to go see it, but I never get around to it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif Last time I went, I knew nothing of U-boats, and only really cared for the block of things people have dropped onboard http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif
