Set within the wookey hole set of attractions, this room full of old arcade games really took you back to your childhood and further back.lots of olld working fruit machines and penny arcade games from the 50s and 60s. You had to swap money for old penny's to put in the machine. Very atmospheric and true to the old style... More

These old machines are different and good fun to use. The downside was many were out of order and several stole your penny's without doing anything, no staff present to complain too.

Neat old timely arcade. It's a little expensive, 1 pound only gives you a few old pennies and your winnings are more old pennies. So only change what you intend on leaving there. Again, I had just me to pay for so it was totally worth it.

The penny arcade was OK. We enjoyed the memories. Our children were enjoying the participation in some traditional games but got quite upset with the faulty machines. There were no staff members at hand to help out! When we found a member of staff we were told they couldn't assist and that we needed to locate a different staff member.... More

Love this part of Wookey Hole. I've always liked arcades and the old penny ones. Especially liked the 'naughty' ladies ones that the Victorian men must have queued up to see back in the day

It was interesting to see these as the slot machines we used to have. They are unlikely to hold the interest of older children but they were good to see.

My kids found this very interesting seeing the coins. They did get bored of it after a while but I put that down to their age. This probably not for kids under 5.

The penny arcade at Wookey Hole is fun for all the family. My dad enjoyed it who is nearly 60 as did my little girl who is 4. Just a good laugh and a giggle to be had.

Fun day at Wookey Hole 4 adults and our 3 year old grandson. We thought he might be a bit too young for a 4d cinema, so we kept clear of that. Caves were interesting. Mirror mazes was good and the old penny machines brought back memories! Brought some fudge from the gift shop that was expensive. Finally had a... More

This place brings back childhood memories, all the old penny arcade machines, and its still very hard to walk away, in case the next pull of the lever may be a winner.
