Last couple of photos of the big boys section. There are a few more machines, but I didnt want to get people in the photos cos not everyone wants to be famous.

At the back of the arcade there is a second over 18s, but this is mostly more classic machines on 10 or original tokens and 20p play mostly. There is a spinwall too, because it was too tall to go in the other over 18s.

A row of legendary games. :) chris217 wont be short of things to keep him going. These have has a few teething problems, I guess because of their age. The row starts with a classic bar x and a smash and grab. Again, a few waiting to be resurrected here but understandable given their age.

At the front theres a few maygays in the 5 pounder section. These play a lot better than you might have been used to for maygays in a seaside venue.

I honestly have only shown maybe half of the arcade here. I think mostly the machines that would be of interest here, but I probably should have taken more photos of the 5 section. Theres so much of worth there that I didn't photo. Just to list a few....

Ring a bell on 20p/5. This was dead today, but still played a decent game, tbh. The higher stake and lower jackpot really suits the game.
Theres some crests along the back wall at the front, Arabian knights era.
Theres a couple of 5 global's, how big is your rock, etc.
Theres a Las Vegas strip on 8 jackpot.
Theres a Miami dice on10p/4.
Theres a scattering of reds on 5, none of them have ripped me apart yet :).
Theres a 3 player party fruits, although it was being worked on today. Dave said it might make it's way into the over 18s.
Theres a 3 player monopoly and an oxo 2 player. A few older astras too.
A Daytona, waiting to be bought to life.
Theres a blue moon in the classic  over 18s. It was getting plenty of play by others today.
A play it again in the classic upright cabinet (not the ace cab).
There is a row of 25 quid barcrests in the class over 18s, and also some in the newer over 18s. Things like battleaxe, big brother, Austin powers. Theres also a beer guide in the classic section waiting to be brought online.
Like all of Dave's arcades there's a scattering of project coin games too. Some not yet ready but I'm sure they'll be up and running soon.
Undoubtedly I've forgotten a lot. Even many of the 5 quidders have stickers advertising 80pc payout and everything played a good game.

This place is worth a visit if you like machines, no matter which continent you have to travel from. Today a few of the machines were not so kind, monopoly in particular (I think it may have streaked already) and fairground (fortune for a board).  But still, I left after 3 hours flying by having felt like I had a great time. Had I have had more time I'd have changed up some more notes and could have played until the doors closed.

The arcade wasnt empty like I made it look in the pictures. :) even on a drizzly Friday afternoon there were up to a dozen people in.

Hospitality was good as always. Drinks were handed out and Dave even offered a kebab! :) one day I'll take him up on his food offer,  but I always feel like the arcade alone is enough.

Anyway, I hope you like the pictures and forgive my camera work. The forum software doesn't seem to understand the orientation field of the images, hence they're all upside down.

See you all soon at the best arcade in the country!

Cosmic, yep that is a football fever although I admit its not top of my list so didnt get a change to have a punt.

And many, there are some 4.80 projects I think. I am going to say off the top of my head a jackpot 7's (I think) and a sevens and melons, but that one was not in action yet i think. Please don't hold me to it, there was so much there and that was with the blue moon, played constantly in that corner the entire time I was there around that area so didnt get much of a look in :)

That's how a seaside arcade should be!! Thanks for the pics (even upside down lol) and hopefully more to come. Im going to get down next month prob with a couple of others, so really pleased it looks totally different than 1st opening day. You should all be proud team :)
No doubt it will get busier as the summer approaches with families/day trippers etc, just watch out for little scumbags trying to rod/shake the pushers for a few 2ps  ::)
Distance no object when it comes to playing at reelfruits and Mr P's :)

Looks great and I'll be trying my best to get down there soon.  Are there any MPU3 or SYS80 machines present?  None of the current establishments have any at all.

I really don't know the tech of machines well. The long row of old machines is of that era. Dave did show me outback where he had a few he was working on. I forget what they all were, tbh, but I think there was an mpu3 there so maybe those games will be out when the arcade is ready.
