Old School Arcades!!!!
Jul 2021 • Family
The machines and décor is stuck in the 80’s that’s for sure, however isn’t that part of the charm of going to an old school arcade. Needless to say our little ones loved it as did us adults! A thoroughly enjoyable couple of hours..

Always love coming here in the summer though sad the DDR machine has gone, it was a yearly tradition for me and my friend. It was also by far the best Dancing Stage game and I haven't found it anywhere since, does anyone know the exact name of it? Still a great arcade and managed to win on a claw machine last time I was in there a few weeks ago, so they're not rigged like in most places!

Great fun and nostalgia in waves
Aug 2019 • Couples
We've been coming to Barmouth since I was born (35 now) and spending all our holiday money in this arcade is one of my fondest childhood memories. I still pop in when I visit Barmouth even now. I love the fact that many of the older machines are still there, as well as new additions to keep it interesting. Some people complain about the building looking tired, but to me that adds to the whole feeling of nostalgia that you get when visiting this place. You don't go to places like this to admire the decor! You go to revisit your childhood, to have fun. When I step through those doors I am a kid again, and that's what I love about it.

Las Vegas amusements, don't ever change 🙂

Visit to Las Vegas amusements
Sep 2019
On our stays near Barmouth we always enjoy our visit to the Las Vegas amusements .They have the usual mix of machines to suit most tastes and are open almost every day of the year.My favourite is the two pence pushers trying to win the trinkets while my wife enjoys the fruit machines.The attendant is pleasant, friendly and helpful who you can have a good exchange of banter with.If amusements are your thing then visit the Las Vegas in Barmouth.

Great nonsense seaside gambling/gaming hall
Aug 2019 • Family
I have worked in my youth as a staff member is a welsh seaside arcade ( albeit in the late 80/s so I’m always interested in checking them out for old machines etc. The previous negative reviews are hysterical but the intellect, humour and eloquence of the management response made me even more fascinated to visit!

Compared to the place I worked at - with unsavoury thugs selling goodness knows what at every dark corner - this is a positive palace. AND - the guy at the cash desk was very friendly and didn’t look at me like I was a plum when I just wanted to change a quid for two 50s to play the car games. Machines are indeed a bit on the older side but still great - and even better there is none of this winning tickets nonsense where a tenner spent gets you on average a tuppeny chew sweet. Cash was is actually in cash- won £13 in my 1st quid on a bandid which then funded me shoving it all back into the arcade games - sorry management but walked out quits after a lot of fun. I do hope this doesn’t result in a life ban ....! Alternatively have you got any jobs going- I can still fix machines !

Thanks for a review that is completely honest & fair regarding the Amusements and complimentary on my replies to rentamob. I’m not certain everyone grasps fully the balance between reinvestment with remaining liquid in a terribly unsettled economy.

A fair few different machines to keep you entertained but pretty run down and grumpy staff working in here
Written May 28, 2019
This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC.
People come in to play on the gaming machines not to compare a swatch of material against some morroccan floor tiles they’re considering installing in their orangery. We spend money on machines. They provide the twin return of making the business profitable & provide things for customers to actually do. I’m aware some folk come into family entertainment centres to lovingly gaze at the ceiling tiles or take in the majesty of the bins but most play on the equipment. The staff were all decent thoroughly pleasant people. Unfortunately as a result of interactions with members of the general public they are now to a man despicable and loathsome. “Grumpy” frankly was a right result. You’re lucky I wasn’t in.

Disgusting
Oct 2018 • Family
My 3 year old was playing on the teddy machine and grabbed two teddy bears instead of one (total fluke) I was really happy for him as he has never won 1 let alone two at once and they got stuck in the bottom of the collection bin and the bloke who was working there would not let my 3year old have them, he was gutted the look on his face, he gave him one and said you can only have one I was fuming luckily for the bloke my wife and kids were there.
But when I get home I will be speaking to the owner and pursuing this, it’s not about the teddy it’s about the look on my 3year old kids face when the bloke said he could not have them, and it is wrong as he won them far and square with the amount of money we put in there to get one.

“With the amount of money we put in there to get one.” Your own words. You did get one. Next.

Great 2p slots
Aug 2018 • Family
Good fair 2p machines. passed away a rainy hour for a few pound. Not stacked up to high heaven with weight on the end like next door in fun land. It's not very glamourous but the kids loved it and they keep it topped up with prizes to tempt them lol. Best value entertainment there is!

Thanks for a perfectly fair review. We know the place could do with a refurb but when the season only lasts 8 weeks and the cost of a single 2p pusher being north of ten grand it's hard keeping up standards of machines with everything else.

Let's go to Vegas he said.
Apr 2018 • Couples
My partner whispered the words I've been waiting to hear for a long time. Let's go to Vegas. Sadly this was to the Amusements at Barmouth! It's just your average arcade, noisy & a bit scruffy. Squandered £3. A rainy day activity I suppose.

There isn’t an arcade in the known universe that isn’t noisy. The driving games sound like cars. The Simulators simulate whatever it is they are simulating. The fruit machines produce jackpot music. It’s what they are meant to do you complete plum. To criticise on that basis suggests you’re clinically insane. We get thousands of repeat customers each and every year rain or shine. It’s not everyone’s idea of heaven but the families return so something is working. The season lasts 8 weeks and we invest heavily in machines every season. The floor is tired as are the ceiling tiles. It’s the games people play on so who cares? If three quid spent spoiled your day come back and I’ll give you it back. Happily. Then ban you forever. Have a nice day.
