China's Titanic

Remember the Titanic? It was the largest ship then (1912) that faced tragedy by hitting an iceberg killing more than 5000 people. The movie released on the same ship was a phenomenal success becoming on of the highest grosser sitting at #2 position in highest grosser lists.

The Titanic is a tragedy that always haunts people (especially people related to sea) and the ship is known for its design marvel is still considered an inspiration in building new ones. Maybe China though the same and hence it started to build a full-size replica of Titanic.

All About The Replica

China's Titanic was started last year in the month of December destined to be a Theme park mimicking everything about Titanic. It is being built by Qixing Energy Group to delight visitors about the tragedy and story of Titanic.

Some of the interesting features of this replica are:

  • The replica will almost be built like Titanic fitted with historically accurate components
  • It measures 883 feet long and 93 feet wide
  • The ship has a ballroom, observation deck, and first-class cabins
  • The ship can emulate the stimulate the ship when it hit the iceberg
  • The project costs around $ 160 million
  • It is part of the famous Romandisea Resort, China
  • The ship stays on the bank of Qijiang River, Sichuan Province
  • The company purchased pieces of blueprints of the original Titanic

The construction work is being carried at the Wuhan Shipyard, Wuhan and the view of the project under construction look breath-taking giving us more hopes on the final look.

Rebuilding Titanic is not new. Even though the present objective of building a replica is a theme park, history witnessed multiple trials in continuing the Titanic legacy and sadly failed. Here are two trials from the past:

  • South African businessman Sarel Gous in 1988 announced to build Titanic II and canceled
  • Australian businessman Clive Palmer wanted an own full-size replica named Titanic II but scraped the project five years ago

With the construction going on at a very fast rate (typical China constructions), the replica will be completed soon and will be open for audience. This theme park will be a unique idea to start with and who doesn't want to relive the tragedy at least in a fake way. In fact, the failure of Titanic was a lesson for everyone in any aspect.
