    The Las Vegas Mob Experience...Immersive Mega-Attraction Center Coming To Tropicana

    The Las Vegas Mob Experience is Offering Fans a Sneak Peek Into Their Attraction.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ulZQm8tLFgo]YouTube - Preview: Las Vegas Mob Experience at Tropicana Las Vegas[/ame]

    Mob artifacts...the accounts of the descensants of famous gangsters...plus attractions that make Vegas's early wiseguy controlled days come to life! This mobster themed attraction center sounds like it will have it all.

    Although, they are keeping the attractions hush hush, I think that we may well be looking at interactive artifacts, a 3-D motion simulator, a themed restaurant, some sort on interactive gun battle, and perhaps even a coaster and/or a drop tower. As Disney Imagineers and Universal creatives are both involved, we can expect something very unique...very cool!

    Thanks for sharing. As a tourist/gambler who visits Las Vegas a couple times a year, I had no idea this attraction was taking place.
    It seems very interesting and looks like quite an interactive museum, if anything else.
    Being an Italian-American though, it seems by naming it "The 'Mob' Experience" kind of seems it will deem offensive to some (but not to me though). But organized crime did build Vegas and it seems appropriate to premier this attraction in the middle of this city.
    Thank you.

    The interactive museum will be highly entertaining way of experiencing and learning about the fascinating history of Vegas, and the notorious colorful lives of those who built it up as a metropolis in the middle of a foresken desert. Perhaps we can each compare notes once we have been to The Mob Experience, Dave.

    I think this idea has naturally sprung to life due to the fact that there already exists a couple different gangster displays in the city. One of them is the "Bugsy" Seagal Memorial at the Flamingo Hilton Hotel. There's a plaque there dedicated to the mobster when he "happened upon the Flamingo Hotel while it was still under construction" and decided to buy it. He has since been credited as the man who "inspired the creation of Las Vegas.

    Another gangster display exists at Whiskey Pete's near Stateline...along Interstate 15, approximately 35 miles south of Las Vegas. There you will find the bullet riddled Ford death car of Bonnie and Clyde Included are a letter of authenticity from the ford Motor Company...and a letter that Clyde wrote the company praising them for their "fine get-away car".

    Also, free for public viewing is the restored Dutch Schultz-Al Capone restored bullet proof Dutch Schultz-Al Capone gangster car. I think it is a Toyota...just kidding.

    Is the Bonnie & Clyde car in Vegas now? It used to be in Reno.

    Well, Broadway Guru.. Like any true "get-away car," I''ve investigated and found out that it moves around. Reno, Nevada and Primm, Nevada are two of the places it is periodically on display at. guess the car has been on tour to more places than there are bullet holes in the car and in Clyde's shirt.
