Disclosure: This post is in partnership with US Family Guide and CSI: The Experience. However, all opinions are my own.
Are you familiar with the television show CSI? If not, you are missing out! But, not for long because you too have the opportunity to experience first hand what its like to be a crime scene investigator.
Every day social media pulls out the investigator in us as we comb the internet for answers to our lingering questions and peaked curiosity. So why not put those skills to use on your next visit to Las Vegas at CSI: The Experience. This is something the whole family will enjoy! We love watching some of today’s hottest shows, such as, Criminal Minds, First 48 and SWAT. As a result, we were thrilled when we got the opportunity to put or investigator senses to use at CSI: The Experience on our visit to Las Vegas.
It felt so real we even had a few forensic disagreements along the way!
Do you have what it takes to solve a triple murder? Play the role of a crime scene investigator in this exciting, hands-on experience complete with two state-of-the-art forensic crime labs and dazzling special effects.
Based on the hit TV show and guided by videos of cast members and real-life forensic scientists, you’ll perform realistic CSI tests like matching DNA, examining bullet casings and identifying single strands of hair. Hopefully you’ll solve the murder before it’s too late.
If you ever had the itch to become a crime scene investigator but never got a chance to test out your skills, this is your perfect opportunity. Become a member of the elite Crime Scene Investigations Unit in the thrilling CSI: The Experience at MGM Grand, which brings the megahit TV show to life.
You’ll be tasked with solving one of three separate murders with a bare minimum of evidence to do so… but don’t worry, characters from the hit series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation will guide you along the way in interactive video presentations.
We visited on a Sunday afternoon and it was a minimal crowd. We were excited about that because we could really concentrate on our investigation! After hauling the escalator to the lower level we had the option to go left. This is where you can patronize the gift shop and purchase tickets for entry.
Then, you are instructed to the right to select your case. You can choose from 3 options. We chose option number 2! After a short wait, we were given instructions and led through doors to watch a short video before we got to work. Once the video was complete we were sent on our way to find our crime scene and get to work.
We were so engrossed in our crime scene, even the kids! We took proper notes of our crime scene and moved along to each lab, working together to solve our case. We did a great job too!
Our favorite and most interesting stops were the forensic labs. The experience was so hands-on and its amazing how every detail counts. Once we completed our documentation, we were led to computers to answer questions as a judgement on how we did. We each only got one answer wrong! But, our spider senses didn’t disappointment us because we definitely figured out who the murderer was!
