  A Mexican amusement park offers tourists the experience of a fake border crossing.   As CNN's Nick Parker reports, it's becoming quite a popular attraction.   El Aberto, an indigenoous town with a history of mass migration to the United States.   "The U.S. border is 700 miles or more than 1,000 kilometers in that direction," says CNN"s Nick Parker. "But tonight, in one of Mexico's most famously offbeast amusement parks, we're going to experience a simulation of what it's like to illegally cross the border."   As night falls, the tourists gather.   "I have some family who cross to the United States in that way, so it could ne interesting for me to know that kind of experience," says tourist Karen Nava. "But I don't want to do like that."   The aim of the hike is to educate on the dangers of border crossing, to discourage further migration.   "In the last three years, our village has produced accountants and lawyers in this village for the first time," says Nacario Simon Reyes, our masked guide. "What you're going to learn tonight is it can be done as long as you want to."   And, then we are off. It wasn't long before we were hiding from border guards.. Then we were ambushed.   "The group has just been stopped by a gane of narco traffickers which illustrates some of the vulnerabilities these migrants face crossing the border," says Parker. "The hike lasts for nearly four hours at a cost of $20 per hiker. I quikcly learned I wasn't very good at this."   Eventually, some of our group were arrested. And the rest were blindfolded and driven to an imaginary Dallas by the smugglers.   And here was the final surprise. A torch-lit display for those who have died crossing the border, and for those who stay to work in the village.   "There was a lot of excitement, a lot of curiosity," says Sergio Cabrera, a tourist. "At the end, it's fantastic."   The park is expecting more visitors ifm, as many presume, the United States heightens border security.   The message of hope for mexico's economic future is ahard well beyond this park.
