Searching for a unique vacation spot this year?  Look no further than the underwater city of Rapture! Built by business tycoon Andrew Ryan in the 1940s, Rapture was meant to be a utopia for people who want to be free from government and morality.  Since science was left unchecked, Rapture quickly turned into an interesting dystopia, where DNA-altering plasmids created by ADAM have warped the population into crazies.  The only sane people left are power-mad and vying for control of the city.  Don’t be quick to write off this gem, though.  The locals are just part of the Rapture charm.  So, enjoy this a one-of-a-kind vacation spot under the sea.  It’s perfect for sight-seers, fisherman, underwater adventurers, and those who like to shoot lightening out of their fingertips.

Packages include:

  • Discounted air travel.  In fact, the plane practically “drops you off” right above Rapture.
  • Unlimited stay for the same price.  Of course, you’ll have to figure out how to leave.  If you ever get to leave.
  • Free plasmid upgrade upon arrival.
  • Free melee weapon upon arrival.
  • Access to all of the local amenities
  • Your choice of travel guides: Atlas or Dr. Tenenbaum.
