It's the worst ride since "It's a Small World" ... a virtual reality simulator of the Titanic disaster ... and now the woman who came up with it has filed a BILLION dollar lawsuit.

Faan Qin is suing James Cameron, 20th Century Fox, Paramount and others involved in the hit film, "Titanic" ... claiming they jacked her idea for a 3D ride that recreates the magical experience of crashing into an iceberg and sinking to a watery grave.

According to the lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- Qin claims Cameron and the others copied her idea with something called "R.M.S. TITANIC-THE EXPERIENCE" -- featured in the O.C. and Orlando -- and they've have made a killing off of it.

Qin claims Cameron's attraction has made more than $343 million ... but she wants 3 times that to teach this Hollywood titan a lesson ... TITAN ... get it?

I think the sickest part of it all is that they actually took a tragedy and made it a damn attraction. There is nothing more fun than making fun out of the deaths of hundreds right?

Sucks to be you, lady. Your law suit is going down like the Titanic ... or like that "V for Sale" horse faced tranny on Wrinkles Sterling. That is to say, going down hard.

In other news, some lady is suing Jurassic Park for stealing her idea of selling mugs with dinosaurs on them in their gift shop.

Oh wait, you mean that movie that just came out this year? Why not sue the people who made the 1953 movie Titanic while you're at it?

The amount of money she's suing for is ridiculous. But let's say, for a second, that she actually has some kind of case.


She could be suing for a settlement.

James Cameron Jacked my Idea about a Luxury Ocean Liner, that is Unsinkable, Black in color, and is in the around 1912. The Name OH Lets Just Call the Ship "Titanic." It smashes into a Large Iceberg in the Atlantic ocean, it was Traveling From Southampton UK to New York City causing 1500 People to die. for Kicks lets just say it was the Maiden Voyage. Without me Cameron would never have come up with the Idea. I think on Monday I too will go down to the Court House and file my Lawsuit for Ten Dollars, that will teach him to Jack my idea for a Movie again.
