Played a few games before my youngest son took a liking to a teddy in the 2p machines. We changed up £5 to start with and began to play. We won a few bunches of tickets and some... More

Good arcade but I was disappointed that the little toys that used to be in the 2p machine are gradually being replaced by packs of tickets. I can see why the arcade might do this but it rather spoils the fun. Not the most modern but certainly worth a visit.

The kids loved shoving their 2ps into the machines here. A cheap way of having some fun when the weather's not so kind - which happens quite frequently...

A busy little arcade room with loads of mothers obsessed on collecting hundreds of tickets to exchange for average presents for their screaming kids. They seemed to think they were in Vegas! Had a good laugh at all of this though!

This is a large amusement arcade facing Marggate's sandy main beach. All the usual machines, can't really say anymore.

Lots of varieties of machines. Some machines in the back are more skill based meaning you can add up tickets fairly fast if you time your 2p's correctly lol. Spent £6 and got two medium sized stuffed dinosaurs. Not bad for some cheap entertainment. Staff are helpful, pleasant. The facility is clean and modern.

Just your typical, fun, money grabbing arcade really. The staff are always around to help and all the machines were working fine, just a place to go for something to do and have a laugh.
