Chinese attraction lets you experience death, cremation and rebirth

Participants can write down their reflections and their "last words before death"

A "death-simulator" which will let people experience death and rebirth, is set to open in Shanghai on Monday. Participants are given the opportunity to be "killed off" by their own peers, "cremated" and then "resurrected" by birth through a latex womb chute.

Ji Ruoxing, 30 year-old participant: "At the moment when everything is completely black, the feeling was really realistic. Especially at the beginning, when I was sitting inside that room, and the door opened, I could hear the noise inside and was a little scared, and then when I went inside, I thought it was alright."

Participants can also write down their reflections and their "last words before death". Then they can take it home as a souvenir, or shred it on the spot.

Ding Rui, Xinglai death simulator founder: "When we do not fully understand and take in (death), saying goodbye is really quite a complicated and difficult task. It covers various dimensions, conflicts, and even prevents you from being able to reach a decision, and you don't know what to do. This all can happen. So I thought of how to be able to come up with a premise on how to educate people on life, so as one approaches the moment just before they face death, they don't have to think about these problems constantly."

The cost per session is approximately USD 68 per person.
