Attraction details
Owner description: Boardwalk Hall is a multi-purpose facility located on the iconic Atlantic City Boardwalk and features the 141,000-square-foot main arena with a capacity of 14,770 seats as well as the 23,100-square-foot Adrian Phillips Theater with a capacity of 3,200. Constructed in 1929 as the country’s original convention center, for 85 years Boardwalk Hall has dazzled guests and residents of Atlantic City with legendary stage icons such as Elton John, Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, and the Beatles. In 2001, a $90-million restoration project was completed to transform the original convention hall into its current state as a modern special events arena capable of hosting concerts, sporting events and family shows. Boardwalk Hall is owned and funded by the New Jersey Casino Reinvestment Development Authority (CRDA). Spectra by Comcast Spectacor provides both Venue Management and Food Services & Hospitality to Boardwalk Hall.

Just walking on boardwalk and stumbled across the light show. It is adorable and draws a nice little crowd.

We visited the Boardwalk Hall Auditorium specifically to attend a tour of the Boardwalk Hall Auditorium Organ. The organ has four entries in Guinness World Records, including "Largest pipe organ ever constructed", "Largest musical instrument ever constructed" and "Loudest musical instrument ever constructed", and holds several records in the organ world.
After an organ concert we were able to tour behind the scenes which basically takes you bowels of the organ. We were also given a history of not just the organ but the Boardwalk Hall in general.
FASCINATING!
The tour is not appropriate for young children or people who problems with walking/climbing.
