For that amount of time, yes. It has all those things, plus food, at Steel Pier.

Yeah they're not leaving these kids all day, it's a couple hours. Steel Pier is fine for that. There's an entire college dorm on the AC boardwalk now- while the reputation isn't entirely unearned it's not nearly as bad as it used to be.

Yes - look up Lucky Snake Arcade. They have gokarts indoors and a full former casino-floor full arcade games & pinball machines. I think there is also a Sugar Factory at Ceasars. There is more than enough for them to for a few hours.

No parent with a clue is going to sign a permission slip to let their tween wander around AC.

That's nuts

Tweens are like 8-12, 14 year olds are at least in high school. Steel pier probably a decent idea for them.

you understand that real people live in Atlantic City right? and a lot of them are kids? and they are allowed to go outside?

Real people live in vans down by the river, doesn't make it a good idea for a field trip

would you say "no parent lets their kid play by the river unsupervised" ?

I see kids that age at Steel Pier all the time fwiw. I wouldn't let them wander off the pier but for a couple hours it should be fine. Up the boardwalk is a different story.

Showboat has a bunch of kid friendly things to do.

Idk why you’re getting down voted, 2-3 hours isn’t that long. Look up family friendly things to do in AC. A lot of mommy bloggers write up things to do and you can find one that your kids will be interested in

Yes, nothing wrong with AC.

Bunch a fucking AC haters in here. Fuck off, there’s a lot for the kids to do there.
