CSI: The Experience
CSI: The Experience, the popular worldwide phenomenon, opened September 13 at MGM Grand in the hometown of the original top-rated “CSI” television series – Las Vegas. A challenging and fun multi-sensory attraction, CSI: The Experience places guests in the role of crime scene investigator as they solve one of three true-to-life mysteries.
Developed by the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History and produced by EMS Exhibits, Inc. under a license from CBS Consumer Products, CSI: The Experience at MGM Grand combines the entertainment of the hit show with real-life scientific principles and investigative techniques – from DNA and fingerprint analysis to forensic anthropology and toxicology. On their journey, guests explore one of three detailed crime scenes – “A House Collided,” where a car and its driver appear to have crashed through the living room of a quiet suburbia residence; “Who Got Served,” where the body of a young woman is found behind a motel; and “No Bones About It,” where human remains are uncovered in the desert.
Spanning 12,000 square feet and featuring thousands of hand-made props, CSI: The Experience comes to life through a captivating multi-media environment featuring dazzling special effects, meticulous crime scene recreations and two state-of-the-art crime labs. An introductory video from “CSI” creator Anthony E. Zuiker and informative videos from the cast of what has become the most successful TV series in the world will guide “recruits” through the experience, but it is up to guests to determine whodunit.
Located along MGM Grand’s Studio Walk, CSI: The Experience will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., with the average experience lasting between 60 and 90 minutes. General admission is $30 per person; re-entries will be priced at $26 with proof of prior admission. Special group pricing also will be available for parties of 15 or more. Advance ticket purchases are recommended.
CSI: The Experience is designed for guests 10 years of age or older. Multimedia portions of the exhibit will be presented in English with Spanish subtitles.
