The fate for this idea and theme park has already written itself.

Dang!

Mao Tse Tung would be rolling in his grave if he could see all this. What is it with all these gaudy replicas in China (and Japan too)?

I dont know if this is going to be a success or not, sure the other places that have the replica of the USS Enterprise, an American aircraft carrier, but these will only intrest a hand full of people, but the Titanic is famous world wide, and that will more than make it a viable tourist attraction. The Titanic has a mystery about it that other attraction dont, I hope its faithfully reproduced and is 100% accurate in all of its details and they dont stray away from the original design. IE gamberling machines or roulette wheels or fancy lighting, just 100% original. will it be easy to get to? it quite away inland so it might put people off, would i go and see it? yes i would.

Was in China 5 years ago. Outside Beijing is a replica Bavarian village. Complete with German women dancing traditional dances. Talked to the tuba palyer when they were on break, they were part of a "culture exchange". They were paid by the German Gov't and were on some sort of diplomatic visa in China.

The buildings were a facade of some sort of paper mache. Closed up the next year. Replaced with a faux Disney themed park complete with a fake Mickey Mouse named Nickey Mouse. It was obviuosly a Chuck E. Cheese costume they got some how.

The words "Quality" and "China" do not belong within the same sentence.

Many tourists learn to shun that country due to rampant and often violent Han-supremacy.

They have a London Bridge, Eiffel Tower, the White House, the Sphinx, etc. Maybe it’s for those who can’t afford to travel to see the real thing.

To make the over night sleeping experiance more real, they could flood the room with freezing cold water, and tilt the room to a 20 degree angle.

This is so embarrassing! They literately are colonizing themselves. Titanic has nothing to do with China. How about rebuilding those great ships from 14th century China??

How about a replica of the Xinjiang Vocational Education and Training Centers?
