After changing the money into old coins very few of the machines actually worked, they did managed to take the money though!

There are so many of the old arcade machines it's wonderful to see. A fabulous collection that's really interesting and can be played by purchasing old pennies. Some of the machines accept 20p's like the fortune telling ones which were spookily accurate!

My husband and I loved the old penny arcade. We thought we were going to be disappointed as the machines at the beginning ask for 20p but just around the corner are the real attractions and the old 1d machines. Change them at the counter and then just have fun. I especially enjoyed the two player helicopter machine, not least... More

My wife and I ,both 60, loved the chance to go back in time and play on one armed bandits, waterfall and the fortune telling machine with the old pennies. I laughed when a young girl asked me what did 1d mean on the slot machine.

We took some old pennies with us to feed the machines. The grandchildren loved it to win some games and that extended their play time. Buying the pennies from the kiosk was expensive, though.

As part of the whole Wookey Hole attraction, this is a great step back in time with lovely staff and no crowds even when busy. Stay over at the hotel on site, it's great!

Money can be changed into 'old' pennies for putting into the old fashioned machines. Great trip back in time!!
