    Mexican Amusement Park Offers Fake Border Crossing Attraction

    An unusual amusement park attraction in the central Mexican state of Hidalgo offers visitors the thrills and chills of an illegal border crossing. The attraction takes visitors through a fake United States-Mexico border, complete with fake smugglers and fake border patrol agents.


    The aim is to dissuade would be migrants from making the trip. The coyote, or smuggler, leading this simulated illegal border crossing used the name Simon and wore a face mask. Before setting off, he addressed his charges that evening, about 40 students from a private school in Mexico City.


    "Tonight we're going to talk about migration," Simon said in Spanish. "But for us it isn't just something rhetorical, but rather the opposite. Because we have endured, we have suffered, of hunger, thirst, injustice, heat, cold, we have suffered from everything."


    Then, under the cover of night, Simon herded them into the woods, toward the fake frontera.

    Interesting. Is it just me, or does this suggest the "Blackout" scare attraction concession?

      If they succeed in crossing without getting caught, do the get a celebratory ribbon from Hanet Napolitano and a handshake and state benefits from Jerry Brown?

      And will there be a sister attraction in the U.S. for Americans to experience the thrill of sneaking over our boarder into Mexico, while evading being robbed by crooked federalies, and/or being shot by drug cartels, and/or escaping the Mexico government's jails?
