Okay first of all, Titanic The Experience at the Luxor hotel in Las Vegas is pretty expensive. So we bought our tickets at Tix 4 Tonight. At first it's pretty cool, but basically it's just a bunch of old stuff that they found from the Titanic at the bottom of the ocean. So basically most of this stuff you could find at an antique store. It doesn't really give you the whole "Titanic Experience" as it says it does. Usually you would picture yourself going on a fake boat looking around like you were on the ship right? Well think again. First, you will recieve a card that says your name, date of birth, and other basic information about someone that was on the Titanic. Then you just go through a bunch of rooms that are connected together. They have a room for the upper class passenger's things, middle class passenger's things, and lower class passenger's things in display cases. You can even go onto the "deck". This is where it gets really cold. So i would suggest bringing a sweatshirt or small jacket. There is even a big chunk of ice that is there for visitors to touch. My kids got a big kick out of that, but me I prefer to keep my hands to myself. It seems pretty germy if you know what I mean. There is also a Grand Staircase room. It's just a replica obviously. You cannot take a picture there, but you can buy one. Just remember there is NO PICTURES. Which kinda bummed me out :(. At the end there is a big poster where you can see if your person you got on your card at the beginning survived or died. Everyone on my family's card died. For some people it is pretty emotional. One couple was even crying! After you are done you can enter the gift shop. everything there is pretty pricey so you might wanna stuff your pocket with a little extra cash if you want something. They even sell little pieces of coal from the ship for 20 bucks! All in all the Titanic The Experience At the Luxor is an okay activity. I rate it 2 out of 5 circles.
