SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF/TMZ) – Some fans of the TV show “Alcatraz” may not be so bright, because they’re infiltrating guided tours on the real-life island to search for a top secret room that only exists on the scripted drama.

National Parks Service representative Alexandra Picavet tells TMZ tourists are starting to stray from their tours and sneak into “closed areas” on the former federal prison.

Picavet said many of the not-so-super sleuths have confessed they’re looking for a high tech control room (view photo from TMZ) described on the show as a “bat-cave underneath Alcatraz.” The National Parks Service confirms the room does not exist.

Picavet also said that they have now posted the following sign on the island: “The TV show Alcatraz is fictional, many areas it depicts are not real. Closed areas protect you, historic structures and nesting birds.”
