Titanic's replica to be moored on the Qi River of China

titanicChina’s Seven Star Energy Investment Group plans to pump up about USD 170mn into creating a life-sized replica of the infamous Titanic ship, which encountered the most well-known maritime disaster ever.

The purpose of the ship is to act as a museum to educate people on the disaster. One of the ship’s main attractions will be an advanced “6D” simulator that will show hundreds of people at a time what it was like to be aboard the ship when it struck an iceberg.

“When the ship hits the iceberg, it will shake, it will tumble … 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,'” The Guardian quotes Seven Star Investment Group CEO Su Shaojun.

Shaojun added that the purpose of the replica was to “inspire responsibility” and reflection on the Titanic’s failings.

The ship, which is based on designs for one of the Titani’s sister ships, the Olympic, is expected to complete in two years. It will stay moored to a port along the Qi River, serving as a local tourist attraction to boost the local economy.
