Got $155 million to spend? Why not blow it off on building a full-scale titanic replica?

If you are not, someone is.

A theme park in Suining, Sichuan Province, China, is trying to recreate the Titanic with hopes of it not having a tragic ending.

Why? Well, they want to attract tourists.

Construction on this project started in 2014.

Su Shaojun, one of the investors in the project, said that they are expecting the Titanic to attract around 2 to 5 million visitors from around the world on a yearly basis.

That’s a lot of people.

While some in the country are amazed with what’s being built at the theme park, some people are not.

While some in the country are amazed with what’s being built at the theme park, some people are not.

Some people are saying that it’s completely cruel to make money form one of history’s most famous disasters.

It is believed that 1,517 people passed away when the Titanic sank.

Despite the criticism, the park is not stopping.

Xu Junnian, the project manager, said that the ship is now nearing completion.

During an interview with SCMP (South China Morning Post), he said that they have finished the construction of the main deck.

Only 2 and a half floors on the top of the deck are the ones that need to be done.

The replica is set to open for everyone by the end of the year.
