The Samadhi 4D Death Simulator

The Samadhi offers an experience unlike any other, being cremated and brought back to life.
One of the biggest thrills of going to an amusement park is the feeling of being close to death:  Free falling rides, wooden roller coasters, and mechanical swings propelling your body at high speeds is quite the adrenaline rush.
 
There is an amusement park in Shenzhen, China that has quite the unique “simulator”. The Samadhi gives you the experience of dying, being cremated, and then reborn again.
 
The journey begins with a walk through a morgue where you are led to and placed in a coffin. The coffin moves down a conveyor belt, into a furnace.

The cremation process is simulated with flashes of light, images of fire, and blasts of air reaching temperatures of 105 degrees Fahrenheit.

Once removed from the furnace, a womb is projected on the ceiling and the rider must crawl until they reach a padded area. The secure feeling simulates being reborn, and leaves the rider drenched in sweat.

The Samandi was created by Huange Weiping and Ding Rui who worked hard to create the sensation of death, being cremated, and returning to life. The project was crowd funded by Jue.so, the Chinese version of Kickstarter, and raised more than $65,000.

Since the release of the Samadhi, similar operations have successfully opened in Taiwan and South Korea.

    Same here, I don’t know if I could be in a coffin with rising heat for more than 10 seconds without freaking out.
