There were lots more of the old machines then I was expecting, and the majority were in very good condition. We visited in early September and had the place pretty much to ourselves. You can easily exchange modern money for the old pennys and get 10 for £1 which I find reasonable. Im too young to remember the majority of... More

Great fun but a rubbish exchange rate - £1 for 10 old pennies to play the machines and some machines take your money and dont play - just like the good old days!

A lot to choose from to play on but you need to exchange pound sterling into old penny's which can become costly if you either have more than one child or you don't limit yourself.

We loved playing on these machines, they are well looked after & you can even win back some old money on them. The small collection is wonderful, with a range of different machines. I did have a lot of fun as some of them were two player ones so you could race each other. Overall I was extremely impressed by... More

A few pounds spent and a great time using the amusements of olden times ..... A few gruesome ammusements such as the gallows, the gulotine and the chinese executions and the amusing Fortune Tellors and we even found one of the twins looking at a what the butler saw and she was quite red faced when she realised it was...

Out of everything you get included in the price for Wookey Hole, this was probably the highlight. Took me back to being a kid and was a bit of a chuckle. However, you'll get bored in 10 minutes and wonder why you paid all that money as by now you will have had your 20 minute cave tour, walked past... More

No point in this, most people ignored it and walked through it, was purely there to extract just a little bit more money from us all. Noisy crowded, overpriced end to an only average 'attraction'.

What a wonderful experiance, so many old machines in a well laid out area. It just shows how just the simple things in life used to entertain you. Our children loved it and went round and round with there old 1p coins.
