Some tourists at the Alcatraz island, who tried to sneak into 'closed areas' of the former prison, admitted that they were looking for a 'bat cave underneath Alcatraz' seen on the FOX new series.

"" has just aired for two weeks, but already it gained a cult of viewers. Some tourists have been reported to be trying to stray from their guided tours on the real-life island to find a top secret room, that only exists on the FOX new show.

According to TMZ, National Parks Service rep Alexandra Picavet said the fans tried to sneak into "closed areas" of the former federal prison. The tourists admitted that they were searching for a room that is described as a "bat cave underneath Alcatraz" on the -starring series.

Following the incident, Picavet stated they have now posted a sign read, "The TV show 'Alcatraz' is fictional, many areas it depicts are not real. Closed areas protect you, historic structures and nesting birds."

Executive produced by J.J. Abrams, "Alcatraz" centers its story on 302 inmates who disappeared from the prison, but reappear in the present day after a few decades. It opened to a solid number of audience (10.05 millions) with its two-hour premiere on January 16.
