Get ready to experience the ultimate sensory overload when our favorite blue bros take the stage and crank up the volume. An audiovisual encounter unlike anything else on the Strip, Blue Man Group is fun for the whole family and just doesn’t get old no matter how many times you see it.  The narrators of the Blue Man Group show profess to know a lot about human nature and social evolution, but the three bald and blue stars are oddly oblivious. Through music, movement and only a little bit of verbal communication, you become a part of this production and swim in the sights and sounds that douse the theater. The show is good clean fun with a variety of acts and quick-change illusions, but the core of its appeal is the company's signature music, played on far-out, makeshift instruments.Seriously fun and unconventionally educational, you’ll have had a lot of laughs, and have maybe even shaken your caboose. Go ahead and let your jaw drop open, after all, being consumed by entertainment produced by three blue men is a perfectly acceptable reaction.

Fun facts12,000: Total square footage of the attraction 175: Number of expert consultants used in the creation1,180: Hours of research3,740: Hours of construction25,000: Number of nails throughout the facility55,000: Gallons of glue used in construction 2,900: Number of handmade props$5 million: Total cost to create CSI: The Experience Calling 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. There are a total of three murders and 15 suspects, so you'll really get your mind going."Our hands-on exhibit allow the guest to get involved, which has inspired many to pursue a career in CSI [and] forensics," said Ava Bahnam, marketing manager for CSI: The Experience. "We put guests in the driver's seat. They are getting an interactive experience solving a crime using the techniques as a crime scene investigator would use."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. "We have agents on duty to assist when needed," Bahnam added. 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. -- By Jeannie Borbe

Had a great time solving the murder case. Enjoyed using equipment to help solve each part of the crime scene. Too bad rattlesnakes were not part of the problem.

 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.

Actors were great.

Had fun with experience of 1920's gangsters, bootleggers and reading about the mobs of New York that help start Las Vegas.

**Holy egg nog and sugar cookies! Now through December 30th, Legends in Concert will be performing their Annual Holiday Show. Get ready to enjoy holiday sets by tribute artists for George Michael, Whitney Houston, Frank Sinatra, Elvis and more.**Have a favorite Las Vegas memory? No, we’re not talking about that time you ran naked through the buffet (we haven’t been able to look at mashed potatoes the same). We were actually hoping you’d mention an iconic performer, someone like Michael Jackson or Cher. Speaking of all-time great singers, Legends in Concert has an all-star lineup of tribute artists set to rip the stage.Legends in Concert isn’t just a “tribute show,” it’s THEE tribute show. And it has all the big names. Las Vegas heavyweights like Elvis, Barry White, Frank Sinatra, Prince and Lady Gaga. Like the O.G. artists themselves, Legends takes things up a notch by adding bedazzled costumes, crazy, wild backup dancers, and an over-the-top on-stage orchestra. All of this awesomeness isn’t to take away from the fact that these performers can really sing. These are trained, talented performers and not some fools they pulled out of the local karaoke bar.So slide on into that tub of nostalgia. The water’s warm and welcoming. Those bubbles though, those aren’t us. We’re looking at you, Elvis.

Performers did an outstanding delivery on musical numbers
PostedMay 10, 2013
Thought my ears would burst, however thats what it takes now. Loud is the norm I guess. Would have liked to meet the performers at the end, but I understand that cannot happen in certain areas.
