Three people were hospitalized last Monday after the iceberg wall of a replica Titanic museum in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee collapsed. The now temporarily closed historical attraction features a half copy of the famed ocean liner, including a fake iceberg which is where the incident took place. That’s right, even a land-based museum of the ship almost sank which might be the most ironic thing to happen since the actual “unsinkable ship” sinking.
I mean kudos to the museum for its dedication to realism but I don’t think you need to accidentally drown a field trip of kindergarteners to show how rough the sinking was.
Can you imagine going into an exact replica of the Titanic’s grand staircase only to see an iceberg wall come bursting through the ceiling? I bet the kid that decided to take a few bong rips before getting forced to go to on a high school field trip to this place was freaking out thinking he’d somehow teleported to the real Titanic and started sinking again.
Luckily nobody was killed in the incident which kept the tally of people dying in “Titanic” named locations the same as it was in 1912. Needless to say if there’s a 9/11 museum anywhere near here I’m gonna go ahead and steer clear of that one just in case history decides to come to life again.
