Generally a zoo refers to a collection of animals in a cage and the visitors who move around to see them. But in China, there is a zoo where animals and people are swapped. Animals roam freely in the park, and people make a tour, locked in a large cage.

The Lehe Ledu Wildlife Zoo in Chongqing city, China is giving people the hair-raising chance to turn a pleasant zoo experience into a stuff of nightmares. People pay to be locked in cages, while hungry lions and tigers roam freely around them. The thrilling experience is meant to show visitors what it’s like to come face-to-face with predators, instead of just viewing them from a safe distance.

To make the experience more exciting, huge chunks of raw meat are tied to the bars of the cage on the outside, just to catch the attention of the beasts and draw them closer. Lions jump up the sides and onto the top of the moving mesh enclosure allowing people to get as close as possible giving visitors the chance to watch them feed in their own habitat.

"We wanted to give our visitors the thrill of being stalked and attacked by the big cats but with, of course, none of the risks," said zoo spokeswoman Chan Liang. "The guests are warned to keep their fingers and hands inside the cage at all times because a hungry tiger wouldn’t know the difference between them and breakfast." The chilling, once-in-a-lifetime experience tour service were launched last month at the end of 2014 in China has proved to be hugely popular and big hit among the tourists, with tickets sold out for the next three months.
