Expensive for what it was, a wander around the arcade was interesting, but the pennies where expensive to purchase.

Great family fun, something for everyone. Great to show the kids how things use to be "back in the day" to what they have now! A good few hours of fun!

Part of the single ticket for all of Wookey Hole, there is no apparent option to just visit this attraction. Lots of working old penny arcade machines (old pennies can be bought to give them a try). But overall feel of the exhibit is faded.

but seems a little odd in an old mill miles from the sea. Not really for the children as it 'not exiting enough'

Machines I recalled from my childhood in the late 60s. Difficult to get the pennies needed. A good variety
