World's Largest Pipe Organ

Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall is home to the world's largest pipe organ with well over 33,000 pipes. According to The Guinness Book of World Records, it's the loudest organ stop in the world and its "ear-splitting volume" is "six times louder than the loudest locomotive whistle"!

You can take an awesome guided tour where they allow you to climb in and out of the chambers -- and if you are lucky, play a few notes!

The tours are conducted by the Atlantic City Convention Hall Organ Society (www.acchos.org).
