The unusual thing about this arcade are the machines are al antiques. A real fascinating look into the past and the Wookey experience is very nicely and tastefully done.

the arcade is at the end of the wookey hole experience. lots of fun playing the old "one arm bandits" using old penny coins. great fun for the old folk who remember the machines and for the youngsters who don't.
