A new theme park attraction in Tennessee hit the wrong note as it recreates Princess Diana’s tragic car crash.

The new 'attraction' called the National Enquirer Live! is at an amusement park in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, near Dollywood and uses 3d technology to visualise the 1998 crash that took the life of Princess Diana.

Spokesperson Robin Turner told The Daily Beastabout it: “It’s a 3-D computer mode, and you’re looking down on what looks just like Paris, but it’s three-dimensional.”

It’s projected, and you see the buildings and everything in a 3-D presentation. And it shows the pathway as she left the Ritz hotel, and the paparazzi chasing her, and the bang-flash that we think blinked the driver – and how it happened.

The exhibit is one of around 100 in the 20,000-square foot space and customers can be expected to pay $24.99 (£19.69) and $19.99 (£14.96).

Turner added: “There’s no blood.”

There’s none of that. You see the car crash through computer animation.

You will be polled on what you believe was the cause of her death and who was behind it

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?

Turner added that he hasn’t received any complaints, and defended the attraction: “It’s definitely not in poor taste. 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.”
