Intense Illegal Immigrant Game


The Mexican economy has improved markedly since NOTW first mentioned the EcoAlberto theme park in the central state of Hidalgo in 2005, which offers an attraction simulating the rigors of border-jumping. In 2005, it was thought that many of the attendees were using the setup to improve their chances of sneaking into the U.S., but now park officials believe nearly all are being discouraged, with the improving economy (and stepped-up U.S. enforcement) helping. The ordeal is played out as a three-hour game, with "U.S. Border Patrol" agents using sirens, dogs and verbal threats, and chasing the players into the night.
