Hell is a place of darkness (Matthew 8:12). I really love darkness when I'm trying to sleep (just ask my wife)! I definitely see it as God's provision for mankind. -- common grace. But I'd hate to have it all the time! See Dr. John Barnett on this. John is a fellow graduate of Dallas Theological Seminary where I went.

Hell is utter darkness—a person is isolated, restricted, totally and forever to himself/herself. Bible.org

Hell is also a bottomless pit—no physical, solid surroundings, total isolation. Bible.org

My fellow alumus from Dallas Seminary, John Barnett, now with Discover the Book Ministries, penned this:

Hell is a “bottomless pit” (Rev. 20:1-2 KJV); however, the new occupant is slow to learn. In growing panic, he kicks his feet and waves his arms. He stretches and he lunges. But he finds nothing. After more feverish tries, he pauses from exhaustion, suspended in black. Suddenly, with a scream he kicks, twists, and lunges until he is again too exhausted to move.

He hangs there, alone with his pain. Unable to touch a solid object or see a solitary thing, he begins to weep.

His sobs choke through the darkness. They become weak, then lost in hell’s roar."

These are 2 reasons that I would NOT want to go there.
