Fantastic peep show

this is a bit weird, a bit out dated and some of the attractions don't work, nevertheless there are a couple of Victorian peep shows which are fantastic.

Very dark and dingy and tired looking. Machines were out of order and we lost 20p pieces where no signs were attached to the machine indicating they were not working.

Surprisingly, the children seemed to enjoy this arcade. We wondered if they may be a little underwhelmed after their experiences on ipads etc! They enjoyed one or two of the games particularly. We found many games were a little unpredictably in terms of 'winning' and getting your coin/ball back, but it didn't make it any less fun.

The whole family enjoyed playing these classic arcade machines. The use of old pennies is a nice touch too :-)

Great for the big kid in you if you like old retro Penny Arcade pier games. The layout of the centre is not particularly well sign posted so can be confusing when trying to find your way out etc..

Didn't see the value in it to be honest. Walked through without taking much notice of the machines. Didn't seem to hold much interest as the arcade was empty.

Nice variety of penny machines but in all honesty, it isn't really a valid 1 penny arcade. The place was almost empty which spoke volumes for the place - this again causes me to not want to go back until is sorts itself out.

A collection of old penny arcade machines. Smelly, old, tired. Children not interested in it at all!

This collection put together by Jerry & his family was fun & memorable for my husband & I we reminisced over seeing them when we were small they were old then but fascinating to see this beautiful collection in working order.
