If you’ve ever wondered what it feels like to illegally cross the U.S.-Mexico border, you can find out now at the Parque EcoAlberto. Located in Hidalgo, Mexico, the border crossing simulation lets you try your hand at getting across the border.

Over four hours, you’re treated to a very realistic border crossing. Actors posing as border control look for crossers with dogs and sirens. There are also smugglers to help you get across. You can experience all of this for just 200 pesos.

Though you may be tempted to fly to Mexico right now, the attraction was mainly built for Mexicans. The Parque EcoAlberto team wants to help reduce illegal border crossings by showing residents what a harrowing experience it is.
