The accident that caused Princess Diana's death will feature in a new journalism-themed amusement park.

National  Enquirer Live will feature a 3D exhibit of the car crash that caused Diana's death, alongside other famous stories like the death of Elvis and assassination of US President John F Kennedy.

Visitors will also be asked if they believe famous conspiracy theories around the princess' death, such as if she was pregnant at the time of the crash or if the royal family was involved.

Some people connected to the royal family aren't pleased.

"Tacky is not strong enough, but I don't think there is a word that's strong enough," former royal family media manager Dickie Arbiter told the Independent.

"[Exhibit creator Robin Turner] says it's not in bad taste - well I doubt he'd know anything in bad taste if it slapped him in the face."

Arbiter said it would be hard to imagine people not being offended by the exhibit.

"Any decent-thinking person would be offended by such a thing. Anybody who goes to something like that would be a bit suspect."

Turner denied people would be offended, saying it would be a tasteful depiction of what happened during the 1997 crash.

"It's projected, and you see the buildings and everything in a 3D presentation. 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," he told The Daily Beast.

"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."
