Amusement park ride simulates death


A "death simulator" opened at the Window of the World amusement park in Shenzhen, China.

From The Independent:

Once inside (a coffin), players are then blasted by hot air (up to 40C) and light to create an "authentic experience of burning," according to its creators, Huange Weiping and Ding Rui.

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".
