The Simulator that People are Dying to Try Out
Ever want to experience death, but without the whole, “being gone forever” part?
Well then, thrill seekers – pack your bags for China, where a new 4D cremation simulator might be just the ticket.
You read correctly…CREMATION. And you thought simulators were going out of style…
According to UPI, the ride is called Samadhi: 4D Experience of Death. It’s designed to give riders the sensation of being dead, cremated and then reborn.
The details are sure to send shivers up your spine. You’ll first enter a morgue, then you’re placed in a single passenger casket (complete with lapbar no less) to begin your journey from this world to the other. Sounds like someone took this scene from “Diamonds are Forever” a little TOO far in my opinion…

The actual “cremation” is a sudden blast of hot air over the rider, along with flashes of light to simulate the flames. Did we mention the temperatures are up to 105 degrees Fahrenheit? We probably should have mentioned that.
Finally – and as if it gets any crazier – an image of a womb is projected onto the ceiling and riders must crawl out of their open air coffins until they reach a white, padded room, to be “reborn.”
Count me the f*ck out.
And for that “authentic” feel, know the creators of the ride pulled something straight out of Disney Imagineering, by visiting a real crematorium and even took a quick lay down in the actual incinerator.
Those who have watched riders exit note they’ve been drenched in sweat – whether that’s from the heat in the attraction or just from the fear, I suppose we’ll have to leave up to the imagination.
Here’s the whole story from UPI, by the way: http://bit.ly/1epfUPX
