Titanic theme park launch

File this under the WTF files.  A theme park in China is planning on building a life size replice of the Titanic.  What’s the catch?  The replica will simulate the sinking of the Titanic.  Yes.  The replica is scheduled to open in 2016 with a price tag of 1bn yuan (£100m).
