The Las Vegas Mob Experience, scheduled to open in December of 2010 at Tropicana Las Vegas, is offering tourists and local area residents a glimpse of what is yet to come – a new and exciting attraction that is going to take the Strip by storm (Pictured above: Meyer Lansky II views his grandfather’s (Meyer Lansky) artifacts on display at the Las Vegas Mob Experience Preview Center).
Designed to be a highly interactive and immersive display, the Las Vegas Mob Experience will feature over 1,000 authentic and never before seen artifacts that once belonged to the infamous members of organized crime who helped make this once sleepy little town into the phenomenon that stands today.
The Las Vegas Mob Experience Preview Center, located inside Tropicana Las Vegas, will showcase the attraction’s floor plan, artist renderings of its interior, as well as a representative selection of artifacts from its collection. In addition, guests will have the rare opportunity to meet some of the family members of the crime figures featured throughout the Experience. Family members will include Meyer Lansky II, Vincent Spilotro, Antoinette Giancana, and Millicent Rosen (daughter of Ben “Bugsy” Siegel). The families will be available to answer questions and take photos with guests.
“Growing up as a kid, my grandfather shared many stories that became legend,” said Meyer Lansky II, grandson of Meyer Lansky. “I’m excited to share this so that people will get to know the Meyer Lansky I knew.”
“The Preview Center will offer guests a glance of the spectacular interior of what will undoubtedly be an attraction of unprecedented quality,” said Jay Bloom, managing partner of Murder Inc.
Visitors to the Preview Center will be able to purchase a 2011 Annual Pass to the Las Vegas Mob Experience. The Pass offers many benefits including: unlimited admission to the Experience; an exclusive “Front of the line” members only entrance; a 10% discount on retail merchandise; exclusive offers and invitations to special events; e-mail newsletters and updates, 25% off rooms at Tropicana Las Vegas, 10% off at Biscayne, Bacio and Café Nikki, 2-for-1 tickets to Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club, 10% off weekend performances for Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club, 10% off Retail Items at the Brad Garrett Retail Booth and 2X’s Points for New Winners Club Members. All promotional offers are for venues within Tropicana Las Vegas.
2011 Annual passes will be available for a limited time for locals under a special promotional price of $29.95, which is the retail price of a regular single day admission ticket. Annual Passes for non locals will be $49.95.
Annual passes are expected to be in high demand, as the attraction is designed so that visitors will want to journey through multiple times. Throughout the interactive portions of the attraction, guests will be able to determine their “final fate” through experiencing one of several high production value “grand finales”, based on the decisions they make during the course of their journey. Thus, guests can return to the attraction dozens of times and never have the same experience twice.
The retail section of the Preview Center will offer logoed merchandise as well as incredible works of art by Marcus Suarez, whose work has appeared in numerous high-profile photo shoots and national ad campaigns. Mr. Suarez has been commissioned by the Las Vegas Mob Experience to create one of a kind “mob themed” paintings.
The Preview Center will open August 2,2010 and its hours of operations will be 10:00am-10:00pm.
