More than a century after its tragic sinking during its maiden voyage, the legendary Titanic will be 'reborn' as a theme park in Sichuan (China), more than 1,000 kilometers from the sea, reports AFP.

Its construction, in which one hundred workers have been involved, has lasted around 6 years, longer than it took to manufacture the original. The cost of the replica, in which more than 23,000 tons of steel have been used, amounts to 1 billion yuan (about 155.3 million dollars). At the moment, the exact date of its opening is unknown.

 

"It is a complicated project," says Su Shaojun, the main investor in the project, who decided to finance the work to preserve the memories of the cruise. "I hope this ship will be here in 100 or 200 years," he added.

The replica is intended to be exact in every detail, from the door handles to the luxury bedrooms and dining room. Experts and historians will validate the final result.

 

The ambitious project is also inspired by James Cameron's film 'Titanic' (1997), which won 11 Oscars. Touring buses will play the tune to the film's main theme, 'My Heart Will Go On,' by Celine Dion.

The ship will be the main attraction of the park, which will recreate the old port of Southampton, in the United Kingdom, from where the Titanic set sail for New York (USA) on April 10, 1912.
