Now that the craziness of the holiday season is finally slowing down, and the novelty of the new toys have now turned into “We are so bored” and ” I have nothing to do” parents across Cape May County and pretty much around the country are scrambling to find new and exciting things to do with the kids. And lets be honest parents, bored kids are trouble so this is for our sanity too. So I immediately turned to the internet to help me find things to do for the kids and to my surprise when the Tropicana was listed with family friendly events. But than I thought back to a month ago when we went to A Christmas show at the Tropicana and that show was very family friendly and families were all over the hotel and in the audience of the show so after I did some research I found out the Tropicana is much more than just a Casino. They are quickly becoming a one stop vacation destination. They offer entertainment, world class restaurants and some amazing shopping. Of course not all activities are family friendly but that is okay because parents get bored too and I think it is super important to have a date night or girls night out with friends.
So please look below where I listed some things to do at the Tropicana. (Information taking directly from the Tropicana’s website)
Imax Theatre: https://tropicana.net/entertainment/imax-theatre/
THE WORLD’S MOST POWERFUL MOVIE EXPERIENCE.
Tropicana’s IMAX Theatre, located on the third floor of The Quarter, seats 280. Crystal-clear images projected up to five-and-a-half stories high and digital surround sound awaken the senses and captivate the imagination. The IMAX Theatre at Tropicana offers both IMAX DMR (digital media remastering) and IMAX 3D, the most advanced 3D film technology in use. The theatre provides viewers with polarized glasses that reveal the stunning 3D images.
The Tropicana Difference: The IMAX Theatre at Tropicana is the only Giant Screen Certified IMAX Theatre in Southern New Jersey and the only movie theatre in Atlantic City.

Tropicana Atlantic City continues to give guests MORE exciting and innovative experiences with Escape AC. Clue meets Beat-the-Clock in this live action, team-based game that challenges groups of 2 to 10 people to ‘escape’ a designated room in sixty minutes.
Escape AC offers four classic Atlantic City themed rooms to choose from: The Poker Room, The Boardwalk, The Casino Cage, or Backstage. Each game room provides a thrilling, yet challenging experience that requires attention to detail, critical thinking, communication and team work to break out. Each session is a high quality and unique experience that is sure to be one seriously good time.
Each participating team will be briefed and given tips on ways to discover clues, solve puzzles, and uncover the secrets to ‘escape’ their locked room before the sixty minute time limit runs out. Not to worry, there are accessible panic buttons available in every room, if needed, to exit the room before your time is up.
Open Noon to Midnight Daily.
Located on Street Level, North Tower.
