We visited the Wookey Hole experience last week,we had been in Somerset previously but this time had older grandchildren,so trying to find something for their age group 12 and 13,but a quite young 12 and 13.We traded in Tesco points to get the tickets previously as the entrance fee is obscene,fifty two pounds for 2 adults and two kids,well the...

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.

my wife and I are at the age we are that we remember some of these machines, obviously while they were being phased out, and it was fabulous seeing so many of them in working order in the one place.

It was great having a go on these old machines and they were only 20p a go! It's amazing how much fun these machines gave us. There were also penny machines which you could purchase easily and again gave us great entertainment.

Very average. They were old but no info about their age or where they came from. A bit of a tired add on. The only staff were the cave guide and the shop assistants.

Loved it. Stepped into the room and was transported back to my childhood. Penny arcade is great fun, the older visitors will recognise every one of the machines here. I was amazed at how much fun the youngsters were having too...just proves everything doesn't need to be a video game. Great fun

Not often I'm so damning on a review but really was this meant to be entertaining for children's, adults or both? Machines were in bad state of repair, exceptionally expensive -although cleverly disguised by you having to change real money into "old pennies" and very little to entertain. Nostalgia is great in the right place, but here just made no... More
