Detective workBy Jeannie BorbeCalling all crime scene investigator wannabes!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.At CSI: The Experience at MGM Grand, you'll go through a series of steps that will get you thinking like a real investigator. See how science and critical thinking combine as you piece together the clues in one of three crime scene mysteries.Before you start, you'll be given an investigation sheet to record your observations. The experience begins with a video introduction by the show's creator, Anthony E. Zuiker as well cast members from the hit TV show.Don't let the thought of science intimidate you. The attraction takes you through a series of steps to make it a fun and educational experience. You'll tap into everything from DNA and fingerprint analysis to forensic anthropology.Choose from one of three crime scenes, which appear like life-size dioramas. "A House Collided," displays a car through a living room window; "Who Got Served?" shows a young woman found dead behind a motel and "No Bones about It!" shows a human skull (along with other bones) buried in the desert. Each crime scene showcases bizarre clues that you'll want to jot down.After exiting the crime scene you selected, you'll come across a panel of photos to take notes on anything you may have missed. You'll then visit two interactive lab areas, each featuring multiple stations with touch screens and other multimedia equipment that allow you to test your findings.In addition, you'll even have the option to record yourself explaining your observations. This footage may be used for future participants to see.At the end of CSI: The Experience, you'll answer a series of multiple choice questions based on your scientific findings. After you complete these questions on a touch screen, you'll see a re-enactment of what really happened.Upon completion, you can purchase a personalized CSI diploma. Or, bring home a certificate which includes a photo of yourself taken at the attraction. For this photo, you'll get to wear a CSI vest and pose in front of a green screen. The gift shop carries a variety of memorabilia, including T-shirts, mouse pads, hats and laptop bags.If you're a true fan of "CSI" and see crime scene investigating as your true calling, this is one attraction not to be missed.

 Mob Attraction Las Vegas at the Tropicana
Mob Attraction Las Vegas at the Tropicana
Vegas family tiesStaff ReportVegas has ties to the mob. Anyone who has seen the movie "Casino" knows that. What you may not know is that those ties date back to a time before the '70s and '80s when Tony "The Ant" Spilotro (called Nicky Santoro in the movie and played by Joe Pesci) and Frank "Lefty" Rosenthal (called Sam 'Ace' Rothstein in the movie and played by Robert De Niro) were mob figures in Vegas.You can learn all about the city's sordid past and the history of the mob at the Mob Attraction Las Vegas at the Tropicana. The 27,000-square-foot attraction recreates a fictional mob world for visitors with character actors, hologram celebrity guides, unique artifacts and more.While you'll see rare items from real mob members, the Mob Attraction Las Vegas at the Tropicana is more interactive experience than museum. This attraction simulates what life in the mob might have been like for guests who don't mind playing along.The attraction is set up as a tour where people move from room to room as part of their journey through life in the mob. The tour starts at immigration where everyone is handed immigration papers, re-creating what many members of the mob experienced when they first came to the United States. The papers also play a part in the interactive experience visitors get at this attraction. After getting your picture taken at immigration and watching a movie about prohibition, you're on your way to joining the family.Next you'll be greeted by a hologram celebrity gangster who shares mob facts with you and leads you through the tour. Live actors come into play and present you with a dilemma. There are two options. One of them is morally sound, and the other one is your gateway to a life in the mob. It's fun to play along, and the character actors add to the experience.Along with the interactive experience, guests also get to learn about the mob's history and some of the pivotal players who are ingrained in the city's past. One of these mobsters was Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel who opened the Flamingo. In the physical timeline portion of the attraction you'll get to see Siegel's 1933 Packard 12 limousine and watch hologram versions of Siegel and fellow mobster (the "brain" behind the mob) Meyer Lansky discussing their vision in Vegas.The artifacts section includes a replica of Siegel's living room including home videos. Here Siegel is depicted as a loving father splashing around the pool with his kids. Handwritten letters that Siegel wrote to his daughter Millicent's mother are located nearby.Also on display is a collection of Lansky's colorful bow ties, golf clubs and Medal of Freedom that he received from President Harry Truman.In addition to the showcase pieces, the attraction has digital displays where guests can access more in-depth information about a particular item. For instance Lansky's journal on display is also accessible for guests to read as a digital display.Another interesting collection on display features Tony Spilotro's stolen pieces. Here you can see a police badge he ripped of an officer and medals that he stole from a veteran's house. There's also an explanation of how Spilotro used those types of items as gifts for his son. Along with their history in Vegas, the attraction also gives guests an insight to what these people were like aside from their life in the mob.The attraction features a bar where you can order your favorite drink. Right next door, relax in a theater room and watch a documentary of the making of "The Godfather." This room also includes other Hollywood memorabilia on display, including the "Casino" movie script signed by Nicholas Spileggi.At the end of the tour, you have to walk through the looming "Hall of Shame," face your mob boss and find out your fate. Will you become part of the family? Will you be murdered for snitching? Or will you be recruited into the Witness Protection Program?After your tour, your immigration photos will be available for view and purchase. Both informative and fun, the Mob Attraction Las Vegas at the Tropicana is a great way to get in some family time while in Sin City.

 Eli Roth's Goretorium
Eli Roth's Goretorium
Goretorium adds year-round fright to VegasStaff ReportIf you love gore and are more excited about Halloween than any other holiday, then get ready for the scare of a lifetime. This is not your average haunted house, either: Eli Roth's $10 million Goretorium is located on the Las Vegas Strip (across from CityCenter and The Cosmopolitan), right above the Walgreens in the Harmon Corner plaza. Since this 15,000-square-foot attraction is open year-round, it'll be like celebrating Halloween every day. You don't have to wait for just once a year for a good scare. And while it's open all year, those coming during Halloween are in for an extra special ghoulish treat. Featuring a multilevel maze within a mythical hotel and casino The Delmont, the self-guided tour starts at the hotel lobby. After you take an elevator to the upper level, you'll witness gruesome sights one after the other. The premise is based on deceased, tortured hotel guests and the serial-killing hotel owners behind it all. To add to the frightening experience, you'll encounter live actors, animatronic frights and special effects in a spooky hotel setting."The Goretorium will be a destination for both horror fans and tourists from around the world," said Eli Roth, the creator of the "Hostel" and "Cabin Fever" movie franchises. "We are creating the most intense live terror experience a person can have, incorporating the latest technology with old-fashioned scares."There are 24 rooms of pure gore. Displays include a conveyor belt of dead bodies, a washer and dryer for their skin, a meat grinder and a rotisserie of heads, to name a few. If for any reason you get scared and want to leave during the tour, there are exit doors in each room in case you want to escape. But for those few brave souls, walk-through time is about 20 minutes.You might remember Roth for his role as Donny "The Bear Jew" Donowitz in Quentin Tarantino's film "Inglourious Basterds." In addition, Roth's film label, "Eli Roth Presents," produced the successful hit "The Last Exorcism." With Roth's impressive background in Hollywood and gore, you better believe expectations for the Goretorium are high."I've spent years planning this and all my nightmares are finally coming true," Roth said.If you make it through alive, Eli Roth's Goretorium also features a '60s-inspired lounge, "Baby Dolls." However, the baby dolls here are far from adorable. One wall is covered with baby doll heads and saw blades from top to bottom. Offering a view of CityCenter, the bar includes caged "zombie" dancers and "live feedings." If you want to take the experience home with you, the Goretorium has a retail shop full of unique horror memorabilia as well as Bloody Marys, a to-go bar. Make sure to check out the chandelier filled with vials of blood.For couples who like to live on the dark side, the Goretorium features a wedding chapel and a reception area. Wedding packages will be revealed soon.Parents beware: This haunted experience is not for the faint of heart, so leave the little ones at home. To get to Goretorium from the Strip, take the escalators up to the bridge at the Harmon Corner plaza, located right in front of Planet Hollwyood. The entrance will be inside, next to the food court.
