There are three storylines for this attraction. After a briefing, you visit the crime scene, gather clues and then work through the different labs. Although it's quite a fun family thing to do, unfortunately it's a bit too easy and obvious. Even if you've made a wrong choice, you're 99% sure to be told what the answers are. After doing... More

Not very challenging, I expected a puzzle, but even if you try to make a mistake you can't. At the end they take your pictures as a souvenir and charge 17 dollars for them, and 5 dollars for a diploma. Summary: only if you are a big fan of the show, otherwise it's just a tourist trap.

I am a big fan of all the shows, love love the original Las Vegas one. I jumped at the opportunity to do the CSI experience. I thought it would have been much longer and more challenging. If you love the show, I would say do it. If you not a fan of the show you may find it a... More

As a science teacher, I was really excited to do this, especially the forensics part. We were given crime scene 1 out of three crime scenes. You had to answer the questions, which were very easy. As stated in a previous review, they pretty much tell you the answer. We were actually talking the fact that they should have a... More

Very interesting experience. Working a crime scene to see if you can collect enough evidence to solve a crime. Very well thought out. They explain how and why they work thru each step. Probably not good for children under 12. There is a lot of technical explanations.

You are given a case to solve, and go through several different exhibits gathering clues. Overall was very well done - case was challenging but not impossible to solve. A little overpriced, but such is the case with pretty much everything in Vegas.

My 11 year old daughter enjoyed the experience, even though if the entire activity was pretty simple to figure out. The fee covers only one scene, predetermined upon payment. Additional fees apply for the other two scenes/activities. They were supposed to email our completion 'certificate' but up till now we havent received them.

My 11 yr old daughter really wanted to do this and I was somewhat curious to see how they would re-create the CSI premise. As she was walking through the labs, my daughter said she felt like she was in science class. I'm not sure whether that was a good or bad thing. I did feel it had some educational... More

Very easy to solve the case if you are familiar with the show, but as an experience nice to try. I guess it would be cool to kids though. Nice gift shop.

I took my 2 daughters 12 and 14 to this attraction since they are fans of the show. It takes about 20 minutes to go through. As much of the other reviewers stated you're given a piece of paper to take notes on, 1 crime scene, and then left on your own. I was very disappointed how quick it went... More
