Enjoyed playing the old coin machines with 'old money' which can be purchased on entry. We also watched old silent movies playing continually in the cinema seating area.

Too many machines were broken. Charged $7 per person for seven tokens but didn't find any working machines worth playing. The better ones were out of order.

The fudge was great and a good variety. Once we went in it was a little disappointing as many of the machines didn't work. The short movies were interesting and the old style seats were comfy. The old games and peep shows were fascinating overall.

Great service from the lady in the shop, especially considering my son was being difficult. Fudge is delicious, and they even have sugar free options. Lovely old fashioned shop with lots of tourist giftware.

We won some pennies and some popcorn - lost some pennies and ate the popcorn and then the kids wanted to purchase a few more. Watched the movies for a while - have not seen Laurel... More

I would have never known the Penny arcade was there if I didn't go with someone. It was so much fun, like being a kid again, and super interesting. There was no one else in there when we went which was cool as we got to explore on our own. Thank you for a great experience

Great place. Lots of old arcade games and penny machines. Kids had lots of fun playing them and watching old movies playing. Full of history.

$7 entry to the antique arcade and wonderful black & white movie playing in the background. The old pennies for the games were just Devine. My 8 year old loved the old games and the three stooges movie. Plus the Lolly shop in the front 😊

Went here on the school holidays, my sons eyes bulged out of his head when he saw all the different types of fudge. They looked sooo good!! We got 5 flavours the best being lemon slice, sooo good. Then rocky road was good. Bubblegum too sweet, another chocolate one similar to rocky road was good. BUT salted caramel really really... More

My teens and I were fascinated with the penny arcade machines, some of which were over 100 years old! Some worked, some didn't, but it was entertaining just the same. The old B&W reels could have kept me amused for hours! There was also a great machine with the original Pacman and DonkeyKong on it, which was great fun. Of... More
