Happy Memories!

A nostalgic diversion for those of us that remember the end of pier arcades and all the old machines that we gladly plied with our old pennies.

Change machines available within the arcade to get old pennies for the machines. The children did find some of the machines didn't work. No out of order signs on them. Kept them entertained for 30 minutes and they loved it.

A collection of old amusement machines, laid out arcade style. Use the supplied (charge applies) 1d coins to make the Lord laugh, have your fortune told, or try to line up 3 cherries to win 6d! Only thing is that there was no one amongst the staff available who knew the history of the machines.

Most of these are not appropriate for children, lots of the machines weren't working when we visited, quite boring and a waste of money

We visited with our 7 year old daughter. It was like being in a time warp and very much set in the 1980s, however we had a great day out and well worth a visit.

Part of the Cave experience is the Penny Arcade. Cave great but this was just too busy and in a building with hardly any ventilation. On a quiet day its probably ok.

Some lovely old machines - have to buy the the traditional pennies though to work them which cost rather more than pennies!

Disappointed! Looks shabby, many of the machines weren't working, and to exchange £'s to 1d's was very expensive!!

This was fun and nostalgic for some of us! Shame that some of the machines were not working but I guess that is inevitable given their age.

Good retro fun and great value for money, My son enjoyed using old pennies and especially the fortune teller.
