Investigating and Solving a Crime at CSI:The Experience at the MGM Grand Las Vegas
You enter a crime scene and you will notice the detail in the site. Look around; make observations as you are collecting the information that can potentially help you solve the case. As you collect data you will soon realize that not everything is as obvious as you would like. The crime scene is very realistic and there are no shortcuts to solving the crime.

At CSI:The Experience you are a new recruit and after you investigate the crime scene you are directed to an interactive lab area where you analyze the evidence that you have gathered and identify some potential missed clues.

As you continue through the CSI:The Experience you’ll find various forms of scientific approaches to analyzing and interpreting evidence that is relevant to your case with the goal of solving the crime. Throughout the experience you are performing as a true investigator on CSI: Las Vegas and you will come up with a suspect and some findings that will help you crack the case.

With your findings in hand you’ll step into a recreation of the office of Lead Investigator Gil Grissom and present your case. After a series of questions you will have a case summary and you will compare your finding with those of the experts.

Only then will you earn your diploma and complete CSI:The Experience Las Vegas.

TOO EASY, Member Rach10s

I was expecting to be able to ""process"" clues. However, you get onto the computers and just read and it feeds you the answer. You don't even have to think. I thought it was going to be more of a puzzle to solve. I got these tix discounted through the ticket office at Mandalay Bay, 3 attractions for 54 dollars. That made it only 18.00 per person. I suppose it was worth the 18 to just say I did it, but I wouldn't tell my friends to go check it out. We did crime scene #3 as I read from someone else's review that it was the hardest. Well, this was not the case at all. Make sure you go to each station or ""lab"" in order. They tell you that you don't have to, but you'll see names and other pieces of evidence that has been processed (even though you hadn't done it yet). We went in order as I read online from another review to do so. At the end, you put in your information by taking a multiple choice ""test"". It's VERY EASY. I watch all the NCIS shows and all the CSI shows b/c I LOVE forensics. I guess I just had high expectations for this exhibit, and it was not as good as I had hoped. I read reviews prior to going, so I thought it would be worth it. I'd only suggest going if you get the discount tickets.
