“No space invaders in this trip back in time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Many people will have only seen machines like this in old films. Some amazing pieces of engineering on show, more character than playing electronic games.

“Thoroughly disappointing”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

Not really suitable for children in our party - all under 4. The fact that the advert says under 3s go free indicates there is something for the under 3s to do. We could have stayed home with a cup of drinking chocolate and the children in the ball pit.

“Great Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

This is an arcade of old penny slot machines. You can buy the old pennies there. There is a good selection of machines from games to gambling. I love the old hockey machine. Great fun for a very small price.

“Good Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Why is Wookey Hole split into different sections like caves, papermill, penny arcade etc? You can't just pay to go into one of the 'attractions', most odd.

The penny arcade was good fun - myself and two children (age 13 & 10) enjoyed playing on the old fashioned machines and looking at the memoribilia on the wall.
