An amusement park in Mexico is causing some controversy with a border crossing simulator.

The simulator is a 4-mile hike that takes participants through the experience of trying to cross the U.S. border from Mexico.

The aim is to educate people on the dangers of border crossing and to discourage further immigration problems.

As part of the hike, some are ambushed by border guards, arrested, even blindfolded and kidnapped.

The cost is $20 a person and the park expects more visitors to the simulator if the United States heightens border security.
