Very abusive staff. The change machine wouldn't work and got angry when I asked for them to refund my money. He got money out of the machine and put it in the closest 2p machine. I will never take my children there again.

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...More
