It’s natural to fear death, but now, you don’t have to. You’ll be prepared.

Introducing “The Samadhi – 4D Experience of Death,” a morbid escape-room exhibit opening in Shanghai, China, that will allow you to simulate your own death.

The Samadhi raised $67,000 on the Chinese version of Kickstarter, which means people really, really want to know what happens after they die. Now, they’ll find out.

When you enter the exhibit, which is set to open next month, you’ll be given a series of puzzles you must solve to escape.

Escaping, however, doesn’t mean staying alive; instead, it means you’ll be hoisted onto a conveyor belt and taken to an imitation crematorium.

There, you’ll get “burned alive” and “tortured,” to simulate what death feels like, which means you’ll be blasted with some hot air and special effects.

If you fail to solve the puzzles and lose, you’ll also be damned to the same fate.

The end proves how symbolic this game is: No matter how successful we are in life, one day, we’re all going to die.
