This October, CSI: The Experience, the unique attraction at MGM Grand based on the hit CBS show, will celebrate its five-year anniversary as a top destination for Las Vegas locals, tourists and fans of CSI alike.
As October also is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, $3 from every full-priced ticket sold during the month will benefit S.A.F.E. House, which is committed to stopping violence and abuse in the family environment by providing safe shelter, support, advocacy, counseling and education.
“S.A.F.E. House’s programs provide crucial resources for victims of domestic violence and their families,” said Ava Bahnam Wideen, National Director of Sales, Marketing & PR for EMS Entertainment, Inc. “In recognition of our fifth anniversary, we are honored to partner with such a worthwhile charity. By donating a portion of ticket sales throughout the month of October we are proud to directly support the S.A.F.E. House mission and values to ensure that every woman, man and child has the right to live in a safe, nurturing and supportive family environment.”
A challenging and fun multi-sensory attraction, CSI: The Experience places guests in the role of a crime scene investigator as they solve one of three true-to-life mysteries. Spanning 12,000 square feet and featuring thousands of hand-made props, CSI: The Experience comes to life through a captivating multimedia environment featuring dazzling special effects, meticulous crime scene recreations and two state-of-the-art crime labs.
Developed by the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History and produced by EMS Entertainment, 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.
