Staff were very uneducated with machines and had no idea how to change the tickets or anything. Boss was very stubborn and was also no help at all. Used to love the place but not worth a visit anymore.

Had previously visited last year and left a review in which a member of staff had replied saying if you notify a member of staff they will resolve the issue. Due to other less than satisfactory reviews on here we thought the arcade might be up to fully working standards so decided to visit whilst in talacre. Servers of the... More

Most the machines here are broken or eat your money. When i told the staff that one machine wasn't giving out tickets he did get me my tickets but then just turned it back on for others to use. The prizes aren't great but also not the worst arcade prices i've seen. As usual the grabbers are totally fixed. Enjoyed... More

This place is good if you want to lose all your money the machines are fixed I'm sure of it as the teddy machines grab teddys and then because the grabbers are so weak they drop! We lost money on other machines because they swallowed money and didn't work, we asked for money back & staff said they didn't have... More

Being a regular visitor to Talacre to see family who live there we have for many years visited and spend lots of money here. That was until our most recent visits. Most of the 2p machines that were working, and that wasnt many due to stuck coins, empty hoppers, broken slots, had empty sheleves almost as if they had been... More

I have visited the sandpiper several times over the last 3 years and in 2016 things seemed to have taken a turn for the worse. Visited 4 times in the same week and had problems with the machines every visit ranging from mechanical faults to them just taking your money without working at all. Most of the high payout ticket...

Staying at a nearby holiday park, took a walk to the beach, a few places of interest along the road. The Arcade being a favourite with my children. Had anything mine wanted really. They loved all the 2p slots and getting the tickets to exchange for prizes. Well worth a look.

Been coming to Talacre for the past 22 years. As a child, I loved the arcades and now it seems like my children follow in my footsteps. They loved coming from the beach to go on the rides, to eat ice cream and donuts! The staff are very friendly. We will be back soon. Thank you.

Just had yet another week at Talacre. Worried at first when it seemed as if Sandancer amusements might have changed hands.Relieved to find the 'old crew' still in charge, and amazed to find they are expanding! They have acquired Leisure land, the Smugglers pub and Smugglers caf, and are in the process of creating what looks to be the potential... More
