Looks like it hasn't moved on since the 80s. Tired and shabby. There was literally no one there on the day we visited - Father's Day! This place should have been full of families enjoying the attraction but it was deserted.

We couldn't find anyone to serve us with the old pennies you need to play the old machines so gave up. Plus there was a lot even working. A shame really as could be much better.

Half the amusements didn't work and they are out of order!!! However there was one flipcard machine with naked pictures of women that should of been clearly labelled as young children had access to this.
