We walked up and down the Kings Road looking for this and it’s no longer there. Ended up in a toy museum in town that had a couple of disappointing slot machines instead

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

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.
