Heather Kalayjian stands looking at the wreckage of a Saturn sedan that has treated the living room of a house like a fast-food drive-through, says the Las Vegas Review-Journal. She takes in the body in the driver’s seat, notes the rubble and bloody handprint on the car hood. Kalayjian became an amateur sleuth for an hour, solving the crime in about the time it takes to watch an episode of “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.”
She’s a staff member at CSI: The Experience, a new interactive Strip attraction that opened this week in Las Vegas. Developed by the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, the attraction (admission $30) uses a multimedia environment of special effects, interactive computer stations, videos, and displays explaining the forensic science used by crime scene investigators in real life and on the “CSI” television shows. It spans 12,000 square feet and cost $5 million.
