Brings back childhood memories. Authentic machines adapted to take current coins. Much more interesting than the push button ones of today!

Really good value for money for how much fun is to be had here! Loved all these old games since I was a child. Can spend absolutely hours here. Particularly love the ones that predict things.

the old arcade machines/games are good to see dating back to the 1900 s ,the pennies to operate them are a tad expensive though !

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.
