This place is full of nostalgia, and our 7 yea old daughter loves penny arcade games. She was in her element. Good fun to play the old games well worth a visit

Great fun and I reckon it makes the kids appreciate what they have from an amusement front readily available at home these days. Great fun

Old arcade machines which read your palm, predict the future, display executions and haunted rooms and reveal what the butler saw. Maybe not suitable for all the family...parents, use your discretion.

This was a very interesting place to visit, especially since my husbands family were in the business for generations and he could remember all the little tricks of how to cheat the machines! Lol! For £1 you could get 10 old pennies so that you can play the machines. It was a novelty, fun to look around.

The Wookey Penny Arcade is brilliant. Took me right back to my childhood and to Morecambe Pier! You use real pennies and experience all the excitement and frustrations that you'd expect. There are so many machines to choose from!

Lovely place nice to see some old machines just wished they worked in stead of just taking the money

There are a selection of old 1d penny machines and 20p machines to play on. From slot machines to fortune telling machines. Good fun.

There is a lovely selection of old penny arcade machines which can be still used (swapping change for old pennies)

We really enjoyed this activity, despite losing some coins due to machines being broken. It was nice using the proper one armed bandits, and we all got our fortunes told :-)

Exchanging your modern cash for large old pennies and playing the machines is great fun. Some of the machines are freaky - executions and laughing sailors, others require adult help as the one arm bandits are difficult to pull for little arms. We particularly liked the hockey as we got multiple plays with one coin.
