Become a CSI sleuth

CSI: The Experience will close at Piazza Surfers Paradise on April 22, leaving visitors just over seven weeks to put their amateur detective skills to the test.

Visitors are guided through an interactive forensic detection process that closely parallels the realities of crime scene investigation.

The amateur detectives have the opportunity to engage in a new form of interactive, experiential learning, described by CSI executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer as "edu-tainment".

Recruits are invited to solve cases using scientific principles and techniques, such as DNA and firearms analysis, toxicology and others that are employed by modern-day forensic detectives and as seen on the hit TV crime series CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.

Upon arriving at the exhibition, visitors are assigned one of three crime scenes and tasked with solving the case by identifying and recording evidence and processing findings in the crime labs and autopsy room before presenting their findings to department head Gil Grissom, portrayed on TV by William Petersen.

Tickets to all remaining sessions of the internationally-acclaimed exhibition are on sale now.

The exhibition is open 10am-10pm daily (last entry 8.30pm).

Book at or on 132 849.
