Keep your guests motivated by breaking up the day with a 40 minute Land Train Tour of the 175 acre site. Take a 40 minute guided Land Train Tour (tractor trailer ride seating maximum 24 adults per trip) to the Northern part of the site, not normally accessed on foot. You will see the remains of many of the buildings used in the production of explosives including the Nitrator (where nitroglycerine was manufactured), Newton’s Pool which is 12 meters deep and used for the testing of underwater explosives including the explosive used in the “bouncing bomb” and the Press House where the gunpowder was pressed to improve its explosive properties. This was one of the most dangerous processes on the site. You will also see the remains of the extensive canal and railway network used to transport the raw materials and final products around the site.
