China has been behind a multitude of international projects, garnering success worldwide. However, they are now going back in time with by constructing a replica the RMS Titanic cruiseliner, which sunk in 1912. Situated in Sichuan, the attraction will enable visitors to undergo a simulation of the cruiseliner hitting an iceberg and ultimately sinking, killing over a thousand people.

It won’t appeal to everyone, but will definitely increase tourism within the area. The attraction is currently the main lure to attract tourists to the new amusement park within Sichuan, but will be fully stationary.

The brainchild of billionaire Clive Palmer, who has partnered wih Star Energy Investment Group, the attraction will span 269 metres and 28 metres wide, the replica will incorporate replica designs within its interior structure, such as the iconic ballroom, dining room, cabins, entertainment and leisure facilities, but be fully compliant with modern health and safety legislations.
