A theme park has created a bizarre attraction based on Princess Diana’s death in what is being seen as a sick attempt to cash in on the tragedy.
Guests are being charged £20 ($A37) to see a 3D remake of the 1997 Paris horror crash and even get the chance to vote if the royal family was somehow involved.
The princess, 36, died alongside her Egyptian boyfriend Dodi Fayed, 42, in the back seat of the Mercedes Benz in which the driver Henri Paul also lost his life.

It was a tragedy that shocked the world, but that doesn’t seem to overly bother the man behind the morbid new attraction.
“It’s a 3D computer model, and you’re looking down on what looks just like Paris, but it’s three-dimensional,” amusements impresario Robin Turner told The Daily Beast.
“And 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.”

However, Mr Turner insists the exhibition — one of around 100 to be featured in the 1858sq m space — will be sensitively handled.
“There’s no blood. There’s none of that. You see the car crash through computer animation,” he explained. “It’s not in poor taste.”

However, visitors to the macabre display will be invited to probe various oddball conspiracy theories — including ludicrous allegations she was murdered by the British intelligence services.
They will then be polled on what they believe was the cause of her death and who was behind it, revealed Turner.

“It brings attention to the different theories behind it that the Enquirer has covered over the years,” he said.
He added he hoped news of his new attraction did not upset Prince William and Harry, although he knows “they are very sensitive”.
The royal family has declined to comment on the display, which is one of the main features of the National Enquirer Live in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
