CSI Invites Forensic Laymen to Solve Crimes in Las Vegas

As previously reported by Las Vegas Backstage Access on July 27, a CSI exhibit was being planned for Las Vegas, Crime Scene Tourism Sprouts in Las Vegas   Now it’s a reality. 

If you didn’t get enough of “CSI:  Crime Scene Investigation” on TV, now, hopefully, you can get your fill by trying you brain and hands at “CSI:  The Experience,” a brand-new attraction to the only city where a “CSI” exhibit truly makes sense, Las Vegas. 

The new interactive multimedia playground opened at the MGM Grand today, a project that took EMS Exhibits only six months and $5 million to create the 12,000-square-foot exhibit. 

Budding forensic specialists can try their skill in solving one of three crimes.  Each crime takes from 60 to 90 minutes to solve. Upon completion of each, visitors receive a CSI diploma.  

It’s also the sort of activity that’s good for corporate team-building, because it encourages communication, says Doris Pommerening, spokeswoman for EMS Exhibits Inc.   The exhibit can accommodate a group size of 45 people. 

The exhibit is open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.  Admission costs $30 and successive visits cost $26 each until all three crimes are completed.
