BatCave (08x07a - The Case of the Dreadful Dolls)

The Batcave

The Batcave was Batman and Robin's secret base of operations.

Here, hidden beneath Wayne Manor, they often investigated crime cases and stored their arsenal for crime-fighting.

Background Information

The Batcave was connected to Wayne Manor by a large staircase. However, Batman decided to improve this feature and built an elevator to connect both places. He also adapted a new secret entrance for the Batmobile. It had previously been located in an abandoned barn, but Batman changed it and switched the secret entrance to a hidden door on a mountain side, which was activated from the remote controls of the Batmobile.[1]

Shortly after, Bruce installed a "Hot-Line" in the Batcave, which was a private phone connected between the cave and Commissioner Gordon's Office at the GCPD Headquarters. This feature largely replaced the Bat-Signal for some time during Batman's career.[2]
