Visit to Bognor 20th April
« on: 20 April, 2019, 19:27:25 »
Hi fellow fruit nuts, just got back to Braintree from a brief but brilliant visit to Bognor, I had my wife, father in law and dog with me for the day out hence the limited 3 hour visit, Bognor was very busy funfair in the esplanade and the sun shining, sadly I think this led to a lack of footfall for the arcade today, however there were at least 15-20 customers whilst I was there, wow what a collection there is, my father in law played the 2p pushers and he said I donít remember them being this good fun! I played on blue moon! Got a nice token and cash run for my initial outlay of £20, had jackpots on James Bond after first £3 and Dr who first board straight to tardy for super jackpot repeater x2 then had a few quid on bingo belle got a full house within £5 played Chrystal maze next had a great time took a few quid back, had £10 on spinwall got a feature for £10 then Indiana Jones got in the arc for a £26 win, played a few quid in Andy Capp, revolution, smash and grab, Vegas nights, pushers and the bear cut game outside, I heard a few customers saying ooh I remember this game and one guy said to me I am here at butlins for the weekend and my mates have gone on the ****, I am staying in here as the other arcades are shite! I saw Dave and had a brief chat nice to see him smiling and he pleased with things but he was gutted about how hot it was in the arcade that combined with lovely weather he said has kept people out, however he is having aircon fitted next week at considerable expense. I can honestly say this place is the dogs bollocks in seaside amusements, i just need at least 2 days to have a decent play on everything 😂

Nice to read reports like this--I was there 4 hours but even that's not enough time!!
Can see the weather being a major factor--Once aircon fitted, it will be perfect.
Can imagine the heat generated from the machines making it rather sweaty betty with the humidity of the seaside--Brighton pier is like that, not nice.
But you just cannot beat the feeling of seeing and playing more of your classics from a era that we will not see again.
Distance no object when it comes to playing at reelfruits and Mr P's :)
