Old Penny Arcade
Step back in time and visit the unique Old Penny Arcade, which has been beautifully redecorated and refurbished in 2007. They have a wide range of fantastic vintage slot machines dating from the twenties to the sixties in the Old Penny Museum including favourites such as the infamous ‘Laughing Sailor,’ ‘What the Butler Saw’ (mutoscope) and ‘All Wins’ machines. Put your penny in the slot and crank the handle, ping the lever, shoot a ball and beat your component! The old time mechanics provide hours of amusement and fun trying to work out how the machine operates whilst admiring their ingenious designs. Bags of old pennies are available from the Merrivale gift shop.
Bags of old pennies are available for a small fee.
The Model Village is on Marine Parade next to Wellington Pier and Pleasure Beach Gardens.
