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...

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.

The children loved the arcade and the old pennies that they had never seen before, fasinated by the one arm bandits and the bagatells

A lovely carousel but only for children over the age of 4! This caused tears from our 2 year old who has been on many of them before!!! There were too many one armed bandits and not enough activity machines to play with.

We gave the 2 grandchildren a couple of pounds each to spend in the arcade and they had so much fun playing on the various arcade machines with the OLD pennies.

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!
