Only a J.J. Abrams Fan Would Break in to the Real-Life Alcatraz

You know you've gone off the rails when you try to break in to prison.

As TMZ explains, some adventurous (and somewhat delusional) Alcatraz fans are taking the J.J. Abrams drama a bit too seriously, entering the infamous prison via guided tours and then slipping away in search of the entirely fictional secret control room seen on the show. Now that's dedication (or insanity).

In fact, so many fans have wandered off to unauthorized areas of the prison that officials were compelled to post a sign warning visitors of the dangers of leaving the tour for sketchier areas of Alcatraz:

The TV show Alcatraz is fictional, many areas it depicts are not real. Closed areas protect you, historic structures and nesting birds.

But let's be fair, Alcatraz fans aren't the only ones who've sought out fictional locales. We're still trying to find a country that hasn't been invaded by the Kardashians.
