Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    It is definitely worth the climb up to the top of the lighthouse. The worker up there was super friendly and knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. The view is great and the history that you will learn from all of the exhibits is wonderful.

    We tend to come here whenever we are in Atlantic City.
    Beautiful, expressive monument continues to whisper the anti-war message while commemorating the Heros who fought for freedom and against communism.

    Small amusement park. Rides for young children however the ticket prices didn’t quite match the amount of time per ride. Inconsistent on that was a bit disappointing. No music on the carousel ride. For the 50 or so tickets we had the kids had fun, but we’re ready to go.

    I would have given 5 stars but once again they were turning people away because of being full. I was there 3 times this year and it was always the same. Plus, a warning that they might all take a dinner break at the same time.

    This place has an amazing view and convenient parking. You can come for a stroll to enjoy the views, have a mason jar drink at Back Bay Restaurant or breakfast at Gilchrist. Easy access to boats and daily charters. The Atlantic City Aquarium is housed in this corner but unfortunately they are closed at the moment.

    went in with the expectation it would be like old school arcade...it is not. The slots pay off in tokens that you need 500,000 for a piece of bubble gum. Expensive for what it is.

    We always stop by the fountain before we leave every visit. The park is quite lovely and boasts an antique fountain with a beautiful light show. This year was the first time in a long time we went during the day, and it was lovely aside from the bums sleeping on the benches.

    This mall is hanging in their. The food court got smaller, some stores are closed but fewer then in many other malls. One of the important anchor department stores -Sears -closed. We shopped mostly in Macy's -seems to be doing OK. Overall they need to reinvent themselves.

    We visited Imax@ the Tropicana Columbus Day weekend to see James Bond No Time to Die, the theater has a huge screen with a good sound system, comfortable seating, concession staff were friendly and prices not too outrageous. We felt comfortable and safe during our visit and would definitely recommend it if you’re in Atlantic City. BTW we weren’t staying at the Tropicana hotel so they’ll charge you $15 for parking.

    I’ve seen Legends in Concert many times over the past 25 years in Atlantic City, Las Vegas and Myrtle Beach- this show was terrific. Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Michael Bible, Whitney Houston and (as in every Legends show) Elvis. Each singer was very talented, and the stage band was wonderful. The dancers and backup singers added to the whole experience. I heartily recommend the show!

    We took it from the Borgata to the Ocean Hotel on the Boardwalk, Then we took the boardwalk trolly to see the sights and took the jitney back. What a deal!

    May not be the biggest arcade in the state with newly announced upcoming hotel renovations but this arcade will always be the best in Atlantic City. If you are from AC or a return visitor, you don't have to be told. This boardwalk arcade IS AC. Its the stuff the history of AC is made of and that will never change. The best arcade ever and part of the memories, past and future, of every kid and adult who ever has or ever will walk the AC boardwalk.
