The mob and Vegas kind of go together like peanut butter and jelly (or at least it used to). The Tropicana Hotel & Casino allows visitors to feel what it was like to be part of the mob with their Mob Attraction. Be the Boss!
It’s not just a show, folks! CSI: The Experience is an actual attraction located in the District of the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino. So put your sleuth hat on and join the CSI experience.
