CSI: The Experience is a challenging and fun multi-sensory attraction that places guests in the role of a crime scene investigator as they solve one of three true-to-life mysteries. The unique experience spans an impressive 12,000 square feet and features dazzling special effects, meticulous crime scene recreations and two state-of-the-art crime labs. Through hands-on activities and using real equipment, patrons are given the tools to gather the evidence, investigate the scene and solve the crime.
Developed by the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History and produced by EMS Exhibits, Inc. in partnership with Key Brand Entertainment under a license from CBS Consumer Products, CSI: The Experience at MGM Grand combines the entertainment of the hit show with real-life scientific principles and investigative techniques – from DNA and fingerprint analysis to forensic anthropology and toxicology.
