A new Titanic theme park is to be built in China complete with a life-sized replica of the doomed ship.

 

The replica vessel will cost $165 million to construct and be part of a simulation of the boat’s infamous disaster in 1912 when it sunk on its maiden voyage after colliding with an iceberg, despite being seen as “unsinkable” before it set off from England to New York City.

 

Su Shaojun, Chief Executive of the Seven Star Energy Investment Group, which is funding the project, explained: “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’.”
