Nice to see expecially because it's free, it's small and not very exciting but a little interesting... It takes a very short time...

This was interesting as I had never seen the penny machines, we changed our money and wandered round it was nice to see what the machines looked like and overall a pleasant experience.

This place was a real eye opener on how different things were back in the day. The bloke behind the counter was a bit grumpy but we just changed our money & got on with it. My son had a great time in here

With just a small selection of old fashioned slot machines this was much more fun that the noisy pier arcades. The only prize I need is the pride of beating my fiancé! Well worth the money!

In San Francisco we have something similar but it's a hundred times better. This place does have some interesting things and was not a complete waste. If you're in San Francisco visit museum mechanic near Fisherman's Wharf. You can see everything in 5 minutes. It's a nice setting down on the beach.

Fun thing to wander through if you're looking to kill time. Small but free entry, and machines are cheap to play. When one of the machines ate our coin, the attendant came right over and fixed things without a fuss. We had fun.

Nice to see these old machines still "working". One old penny costs 20p to purchase. Beware the fortune teller - if it does not deliver the card as advertised the explanation is that it is due to the damp. Fair enough. But, if you point out that the machine is not working as advertised rather than refund a child 20p... More
