Weird Award of the Week: Mexican Theme Park with U.S. Border Crossing Simulation

Talk about an unorthodox trip to the amusement park. A community in Alberto, Mexico is creating a border-crossing themed park in the hopes of deterring residents from fleeing north to the U.S. 
A park in HñaHñu, Mexico – which is located a few hundred miles from the Mexico-American border – features ”Night Walks” that simulate crossing the border as an illegal immigrant to show people how dangerous a border crossing is.
During the “Night Walks,” people will be chased through the night as they cross fences, wade through rivers and are shot at by fake border patrol agents – all while shouting and sirens fill the air.
