The treacherous trek to illegally cross into the United States is rife with peril, as migrants risk death, sexual assault and separation from their loved ones. And for less than $20, tourists can join in the journey.
As the migrant crisis continues to unfold along the southern border, visitors looking for a fully-immersive experience can pay for the opportunity to become an alien for the night at a theme park in Mexico. Parque EcoAlberto in El Alberto advertises the “Night Walk” online as a “totally different and unique concept” that allows participants to reenact an illegal border crossing into the U.S.
The article goes on to state the following:
The theme park, located about 80 miles north of Mexico City, has been offering the attraction since 2004, and participants can choose to fork out $17 ($350 Mexican pesos) for the typical version or $24 ($500 in Mexican pesos) for an “extreme” version that lasts an additional six hours.
Participants begin their journey at a local Catholic church, where they received a motivational talk that describes the attraction as being about creating awareness of immigration issues and providing a source of employment for area residents.
