Theme Park Opens Controversial Attraction Based On Princess Diana's Fatal Car Crash

Theme Park Opens Controversial Attraction Based On Princess Diana's Fatal Car Crash

A theme park opening in America will allow people to experience controversial moments from recent history - including the crash that killed Princess Diana in 1997.

Located in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, National Enquirer Live! is a new park celebrating US magazine, The National Enquirer, which opens tomorrow (25 May).

Creator Robin Turner has insisted the Princess Diana exhibit is 'not in poor taste', and that he was yet to receive any backlash from Buckingham Palace.

He told the Daily Beast: "It's just showing the route of what happened. For people who've never been to Paris, it's just showing the topography, and the distance, and the tunnel, and that kind of stuff...It's done very professionally."

Turner explained the attraction would be a 3D model that lets people look down on what look down onto a scene that looks 'just like Paris'.

"It shows the pathway as she left the Ritz hotel, and the paparazzi chasing her, and the bang-flash that we think blinded the driver - and how it happened," continued Turner, who admitted he hoped Diana's sons, William and Harry, won't be offended.

He added: "There's no blood. There's none of that. You see the car crash through computer animation."

Instead, people will be able to explore many of the conspiracy theories that surfaced in the wake of Diana's death, including the claims that she had been pregnant with the child of boyfriend Dodi Fayed - and that Buckingham Palace had arranged for her murder.

"You will be polled on what you believe was the cause of her death and who was behind it," Turner continued.

"We ask questions like 'Do you think the royals were involved?' 'Do you think she was pregnant?'

"All we do is ask questions on what's your opinion."

Along for the focus on Princess Diana's untimely death, there will also be an exhibit showing the National Enquirer's 1977 cover photo of Elvis Presley's corpse in its open coffin, along with a replica of the crime scene where the bodies of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman were found in 1994.

There will also be a nod to the moment Michael Jackson dangled his nine-month-old son over the balcony of Berlin's Adlon Hotel in 2002.

Rick Laney, head of communications for the park, confirmed to the Mirror that the Diana attraction existed although, but said it was a 'small part' of the 'Royal Closet' attraction.

He said: "It features an interactive screen where you can flip through the closets of royal family members and an activity where you can examine their family trees.

"The Diana piece is only a small part."
