Rolling chairs

Hey there,

Just a quick questions for you guys as I am planing to come back a couple days in AC over the summer.

Are the rolling chairs still operating on the boardwalk?! I was watching the boardwalk's webcam recently and I couldn't see any... instead there's some kind of "motorised train"...

Can anyone help please? I remember how much fun it was to ride those chairs...!!

Thanks, cheers

Still going strong as of last week, they are lined up outside the casinos waiting, offering rides. It's likely their numbers have been fewer during the week and before the season really gets started, which may account for their lack of visibility on the cam you were watching.

Also, there are now fairly strict operating regulations which may also contribute to reduced visibility .


I think the cost for a ride is about a buck a block with a $5 minimum.

Have they started running the trains on the boardwalk again? they had discontinued them when we were there a couple of years ago. They were fun if you aren't in a hurry . Not as fast as the jitney but better for ocean and people watching.

The trains were discontinued because of lawsuits involving accidents . I don't think there is any chance of them starting up again .

I thought the same thing but jlloo said in his query that he saw some kind of "motorized train" on the webcam so I thought they might have taken them out of mothballs. I guess people were jumping off while they were moving or people were walking in front of them and getting hit. Too bad.
