A RIDE which simulates a crematorium has been flooded with crowds wanting to experience the after life.

The 4D Death Simulator at the Window Of The World theme park has opened just in time for Halloween.

Participants lie down in a wooden coffin in a mock mortuary before ghoulish ride attendants push them into a “furnace” – which heats up to a sweltering 40 degrees Celsius.

Thrilled fan Ting Shen, 22, said: “You really feel like you’re being burnt alive.

“I feel like I died and came back.”

A spokesman for the park, in Shenzhen, southern China, said: “The customers can wander around the morgue first and then get to fell how it would be if they were cremated.

“People have a morbid fascination with death and the after-life and this is a good way of experiencing both.”

But the attraction has so far only appealed to younger crowds.

Mum Yue Wan Ho, 43, said: “I went into the morgue bit with my kids who couldn’t wait to get inside the coffin.

“But I think it’s all just a little bit too weird for me.

“I think I’ll wait until my time is really up before pretending it is.”
