Only a hour flight away from Las Vegas we visit frequently, sometimes once a month. I'll be sharing our trip reports, tips on making the most of your stay in Vegas, reviews of restaurants and shows we have seen, along with my thoughts related to our favorite place to get away from it all.

The Mob Attraction at Tropicana!

We decided to go to Mob Attraction on Sunday after our lunch at MOzen Bistro. We walked over to the Tropicana from Aria and then once in the Trop we had quite a long walk to the attraction.
While we had a great deal from livingsocial for two ticket vouchers that I had paid $26.10 for,  if you haven't gotten an online deal before going, look for someone around the box office area giving out fake 100 dollar bills that will give you a discount off your admission before you make your way up the escalator.
When we redeemed our livingsocial vouchers for our tickets we were given a passport for the two of us.
We then commenced our sojourn into the Mob Attraction where the first thing we encountered was of course a bar. :)
We didn't stop for a drink but headed right to Immigration, which is a translation for photo op, with you  and your group doing different poses!
After our photos were taken we waited for the group ahead of us to finish with their first interaction with the actors and then we were on our way.
Mob Attraction did an excellent job of introducing us to the old time mob scene, starting out first in Coney Island.
As we made our way down alley's, streets and into buildings we were given mob history by James Caan, Tony Sirico and others.

During the first part of the Mob Attraction you will have several interactions with actors.
I'm no snitch so I don't want to give away the plot too much but both my husband and I had fun trying to get a job and become part of the family.

Did the cop get anything out of my husband and I during our interrogation?
Did we land in jail with this poor soul?
Thanks to a timely telephone call we escaped from NY and made our way to a place called Las Vegas!
Once in Vegas we were given a quick education on how things work there.
I'm innocent I tell you, innocent!

The glitz, the glamour!
The eyes in the sky, watch it, because you are certainly being watched!
The money room, no loitering, keep walking. ;)

1927 Studebaker, who did it belong to? Look in the case at the owner's manual, the owner signed it!
Most of the attraction is the museum. Read the bios of the mob and view some of their actual possessions.
There's a interactive display that shows Vegas from the early days to 2007 or so.
The following photos are only a small part of the various displays.

I spent quite a bit of time in the Bugsy Siegel area watching the home movie they had running.

We had fun at the end of the museum imploding various Vegas casinos!
After spending as much time in the museum as you want it's time to go through the final interaction.
At the end of the attraction you find out your fate with the family. Will you be whacked or made?
Watch your back at the end, it can be noisy and dangerous. I mean it, we're in the family now, watch your back!

After you exit the Mob Attraction into the gift store you will be given the opportunity to purchase the photos they took earlier of you. While we didn't buy our photos they were actually cute and I also liked some of the items they had for sale in the store.
