We really liked this. Some of the machines weren't working and that wasted a few pennies, but we stop had fun and have fortune cards each to keep as a momenento.

Really enjoyed the 'old penny arcade' - something special about playing on those ancient machines! The only downside is your not going to win anything and you need to purchase the old pennies (about 10 new pence each) for each spin. But a nice experience and only spent about £5!

Great to see these old penny arcade machines still available to use. Lots of fun and games trying to work out what each one would do, how to play it and enjoy marvelling at the technology of the times. Such a shame they are so few and far between.

Typical of the kind of arcades found on piers and along beach fronts decades ago before decimalisation. An enjoyable memory lane tour but you do have to buy the pennies to be able to use the machines (£1.00 for 12 pennies)

I visited here with my husband and his auntie this weekend. I last visited as a child about 20 years a go. I remember really enjoying the arcade and it was something I was most excited about when we went. I was really surprised to learn that it was £2 for 25p of old coins. Some of the machines didn't...

I hope they keep this going. Great to see all the old slot machines and laughing sailors absolutely loved it and could spend hours here. My daughter also enjoyed it although I thought she would find it boring it was quite the reverse.
