Lovers of Titanic will be able to experience the magic, grandeur --and fear of what it must have been like on the "unsinkable ship" as it was going down.
Scheduled to open in 2016 in China, the true-to-size recreation will be the centerpiece of a theme park in Sichuan – a landlocked province, over 900 miles from the nearest ocean, reports the Telegraph. The project is estimated at $165 million.
The attraction will allow hundreds of visitors to experience the feeling of an actual shipwreck through a unique simulation. Su Shaojun, chief executive of the Seven Star Energy Investment group that is funding the project, says the new Titanic museum will offer visitors a unique experience.
“When the ship hits the iceberg, it will shake, it will tumble," Shaojun told a press conference on Sunday. "We will let people experience water coming in by using sound and light effects. They will think, 'The water will drown me, I must escape with my life.'"
What kind of messed up person comes up with this to try to make a buck? Scaring people to death and making a ride out of a terrible accident. Seriously wondering about the thought process behind this one...
This gets your jimmies to their maximum rustle? Seriously? Yet, we make a movie about it and rake in big bucks and that's OK...
Also, how dumb do you have to be to say things like "lets make a Nanking theme park"? The Titanic was an accident. The iceberg didn't rape the passengers now did it? How about we make a Holocaust ride? See how stupid that is?
I for one would love to experience it, I've been captivated with the Titanic and the stories of those on board since I was a child in the 80's.
I want to know how it feels to be nuked. Better yet how does it feel to be killed by random gunfire? Maybe they will open a 'theme park' where you can be raped and tortured.

I agree with you op this is sick and insensitive. Anything to make a buck.
