Quirky Pier Fun in the Sun!

Hats off to all the inventors/designers of these very individual arcade-like attractions. Fun for all ages. Loved the Wolf & Mobility games 😂

Been a 5 years ago and came back for more fun. Some of the games have been updated since we were here last.

A trip to Southwold cannot be done without a visit to this gem. We introduced or friends to this wonderful attraction last year and they were all eager to go again. We had much hilarity having brain washes, walking the dog, testing or DNA, having a holiday in an armchair , seeing the doctor and wacking bankers and to top... More

What a wonderful surprise this turned out to be during a trip to Southwold. Full of totally mad homemade automatons. A complete throwback to bygone days. I would defy anyone not to come out of here laughing whether from trying out the machines or just watching others

This show needs to be seen to be believed, from your gene makeup analysis, to your scare test, and the 'Whack a banker' Make sure you take some change with you and spend some time in the imagination of Tim Hunkin! Highly recommended for kids of all ages! Get yourself there!

Very unusual display of home made arcades. you could be a human fly or see how long you can wait for the wolf to bite! You must visit to understand but it is worth the visit.

A simple little attraction that is fun. Lots of odd attractions and slot games to spend a small amount of time. You will not be there long though so make sure you have other things to see and do.
