Now experience cremation with 'death simulator' in Chinese theme park

ANI  |  London 

Themes Park are supposed to give you chills but a Chinese theme park has done something unique for their customers as they have set up a 'death simulator' where volunteers can experience being cremated.

According to its creators, Huange Weiping and Ding Rui, once inside, players are then blasted by hot air up to 40 and light to create a genuine experience of burning, the Independent reported.

When the "burning" is over, volunteers see a womb projected on the ceiling and must crawl until they reach a large, white padded area supposedly representing a womb where they are reborn.

The Samadhi Game, located in a corner of the Window of the World amusement park in Shenzhen, opened in September 2014 and for roughly 26 pounds simulates players' deaths by placing them in a coffin and then transporting them to the incinerator.

Approximately 50 per cent of Chinese elect for cremation upon their deaths, and the creators said that they went to extensive lengths to ensure their simulation was accurate, including visiting a real crematorium and being placed inside.
