Snake Island, Brazil
Ilha da Queimada Grande, also known as Snake Island, one of many Snake Islands around the world, is an island off the coast of Brazil in the Atlantic Ocean. It has the world's most deadly species of snake, Bothrops Isnsularis or the Golden Lancehead. It's a venomous pit viper species that is only found on Snake Island with its underside being light yellowish brown (golden) in color. The island is so dangerous that the Brazilian government banned all visitors, but every few years they let a few scientists visit the island and study the snakes.
Club 33, Disney World
There is a story about Club 33 at Disney World and apparently it's a private dining experience consisting of the restaurant and jazz lounge Le Salon Nouveau. It has a 14 year long waiting list, and even if you do happen to get on the list, the fee is 40 000 $, and aditional 27 000 $ every year.
Fort Knox, Kentucky
Fort Knox is a reserve that holds the US gold bullion as well as other national treasures. It's heavily secured with approximately 30 000 soldiers, as well as a number of attack helicopters around it's perimeter. The gold vault is protected by 22ton blast proof doors.
North Sentinel Island, Bey of Benegal
The island is completely surrounded by coral reef, making it hard to approach by boat. Also, the Island is home to a small tribe of 50 to 400 natives, known as the Sentinelese. They have tried to kill outsider by throwing rocks and shooting arrows- making it even more challenging to approach the island. Their rejection in contact with oustiders has lead them to be the world's last community to stay untouched by modern civilization. They are completely isloated, and the Indian Government declared the island off limits.
Island of Poveglia, Italy
Back when the bubonic plague ate up most of the world’s population, the Romans had a clever idea to keep the healthies separated from the sickos. The plagued people were shipped off to Poveglia Island, a small, secluded land mass that floats between Venice and Lido. There, people lived out the last of their wretched lives together until they croaked. Since the island already reeked of death, the next time an epidemic came along, barely alive bodies were dumped there and burned in mass graves. In the 20s, a mental hospital was built to welcome the island’s newest “guests,” or anybody that showed symptoms of any sort of sickness, physical or mental. Basically, if you had an itch, away you went to Poveglia where you’d sink your feet into the soil (half dirt, half human ash) and be in the company of over 100K diseased ghosts. What’s more is that these plagued ghosts aren’t your loveable Patrick Swayze types. No, these ghosts are pissed. You see, a dickhead doctor ran the mental hospital and, since mental health was pretty wishy-washy back then, conducted all kinds of brutal experiments on residents of the island (like shoving chisels into their brains to see what moved.) The doc eventually tumbled off the bell tower, either by his own doing or with a little shove from a few tortured souls. He survived the fall but rumor has it that some sort of mist swallowed him upon landing, effectively finishing the job. Suffice it to say that if you’re looking for a place to piss your pants in horror, Poveglia’s got the ghoulish goods.
