Visitors to a theme park in China will be able to experience the sinking of the Titanic. 

A life-size version of the passenger liner will be built in a theme park in China, letting people experience the sinking as depicted in the film "Titanic."

The replica will feature a museum and a simulation of the disaster in which more than 15 hundred people died. The exhibit will cost about 100 million dollars and will be situated about 930 miles away from the nearest ocean.

Bernard Hill, who played Captain Edward Smith in the movie and flew to Hong Kong to show his support for the project, says he doesn't think building a ride based on the sinking in 1912 is inappropriate. The ride is expected to open in 2016.
