On October 1, at Discovery Times Square, NYC, individuals will be able to undertake the challenge of being a crime scene investigator and try to solve a real true-to-life mystery. Tickets are now on sale for the event at the box office on 226 West 44th Street. The experience lasts for between 60 and 90 minutes and will be open Sunday to Wednesday from 9am to 8pm and Thursday to Saturday from 9am to 9pm at a cost of $25 ($21.50 for seniors and $19.50 for kids).
The ‘experience’ stands at 12,000 square feet and was created with the help of 175 forensic science experts so that a true scientific-based experience could be incorporated into the TV show’s entertainment aspect. The guests become investigators and undergo one of three crime scenes and 15 forensic lab stations as well as video messages from Anthony E. Zuiker, creator of ‘CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,’ cast members (past and current) and forensic experts. It is as close to a real investigative experience as could be, with real “DNA, blood spatter and fingerprint analyses, to forensic anthropology and toxicology to immerse exhibit goers deep into the science of solving crimes.” Guests on the show need to be at least 12-years-old.
