A little dissapointed as quite a few of the machines were out of action, however the little one really enjoyed playing the machines with the old penny. Quite busy and a little confusing finding your way round through the crowds.

This is not a stand alone attraction and part of the Wookey Cave Experience. Although the penny arcade might not be to everyone's taste, I really liked it and enjoyed its old fashioned charm. It was great to walk around and put a penny or...More

Shame they never had old penny exchange while we were there. To be fair we didn't go looking as we were on our way to Jacks for lunch.

A great place for grand parents to reminisce about the "good old days" with their grand children and children. In these days of hi-tech gaming it was interesting to see how fascinated young children were the games of 'olden days'. It also helped teach the...More

We enjoyed the penny arcade - although lots of the machines were broken either with pennies wedged in the holes or with out of order signs on them. They could also do with some step ups to enable the smaller children to put the coins...More

It was fun using these old penny fruit machines and games. It seems a great way to keep them operational, without encouraging gambling.
