I am sorry to say that horrible stories about mikva'os are 100% true -- and then some.
L'aniyas da'ati, all mikvaos for men should be off limits to any children. No child under the age of 18 should go. Period.
I personally know of many many boys who were molested in mikva'os.
I am in close contact with an ex-chassidishe young adult who, over time, was raped by at least 10 men; among them, rebbeim, often in mikvaos.

I may one day.
Keep shining light in the dark corners. You may save a kid's life.
