Cage of Death puts tourists inside crocodile's lair
Only 4cm of acrylic separates people and croc

Thanks to Annette for this newspage (click on thumbnails to view larger images) 


NEW theme park (which opened in Darwin during 2008) hopes to lure tourists into a "Cage of Death" for a close encounter with a 5.5m crocodile. Just 4cm of acrylic will separate brave punters from the jaws of Choppa - a feisty saltwater croc. Top End tourists will climb into a clear box before being lowered into Choppa's lair. They'll then spend 15 minutes inside the 2.8m high cage and watch Choppa, who lost both front feet while fighting other crocodiles...
The owners of the $29 million Crocosaurus Cove theme park... have described the feature attraction as “a shark cage without the bars”. Another seven crocodile enclosures will feature underwater viewing windows, and one will have a swimming area next to the viewing window so visitors get a sense of swimming with the crocs. .
The most famous crocodile to be housed at the park is Burt, who starred as the beast that nearly ate Linda Koslowski’s character in Crocodile Dundee (movie)
The owners say there will be more than 100 crocodiles, 200 fish, 40 turtles and 76 snakes and lizards on display.
