Melbourne, July 11 : Get ready for some real action - a new theme park is set to open in Australia whose main feature will be trapping daredevils in a fibreglass "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.

The tourists of Top End - the second northernmost point on the continent of Australia -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, trying to take a bite out of them.

One of the first people to climb into the 'Cage of Death', Jim Charles, revealed that it was a scary experience.

"You just feel the power when it hit the cage. You wouldn't have a chance (without the cage)," News.com.au quoted him, as saying. The owners of the 29 million dollars Crocosaurus Cove theme park, which is scheduled to open in Darwin next week, have described the feature attraction as "a shark cage without the bars".
