Las Vegas Interactive Mob Attraction Offers New Event Spaces
The Tropicana Las Vegas has a meeting space you can’t refuse. An interactive exhibit at the casino focusing on Vegas’ history of organized crime reopened earlier this year with a new name—Mob Attraction Las Vegas—and a new focus on catering to meeting planners. The attraction was closed for five months during bankruptcy proceedings. Part of the new business plan included turning a portion of its exhibit area into a new 5,000-square-foot event space. Another space is expected to open in August, based on a Prohibition-era speakeasy. The attraction will also work with planners to customize events, prepping the actors who populate the venue’s alleyways and shops with details about the group or preparing special labels for the booze they serve.
The attraction uses a combination of live actors and technology—including holograms of famous actors who have played mob characters, such as James Caan and Mickey Rourke—to guide visitors through an interactive storyline. It also features a number of authentic artifacts from the lives of such historical figures as “Bugsy” Siegel. mobattraction.com
