“Old era fun.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

This was ok to spend 20-30 minutes, the kids all had £1 worth of old pennies. Some of the machines didn't work, (given their age it's acceptable) but every now and then the kids would play a penny game and win two more back. A great feeling at any age.
The broken ones could have Not Working signs up.

“Cha Ching!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Get your Pennies from the kiosk not the automatic machine as you get more - keep one as a memento! Make sure the whole Party gets a few so you can play together!

“Reminiscent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

There were a lot of old penny machines that I remember from when I used to go to the seaside and go in the arcades. I could have spent lots of money but did not see anyone around to change up current money to old pennies. Thankfully.
