Thanks for sharing Cosmic. I have seen this video before but was nice to watch it again.

Such a shame that they have been left to rot really

Has this place been knocked down yet? I heard they was building flats or something on it?  Again this wasnít a bad arcade had a few classics in there.  Pretty sure they had the party games video in there that had a £25 top board £5 slaves!

Hi Dan, yes they had those machines you mention.
Towards the end they had a 9 player OXO and 8 players bullion bars lol. Sad news to report though as recent 3 weeks ago developers moved in. To the rear in the car park remains every single Fruity / classic video game they had all smashed up in a heap. GUTTING!!!!!!!

The nightclub below Bogeys did yes but only after it closed down and that was a good year after. I went in there around a year after I bought the Lucky strike in there. To go with my Gambler,  Monopoly, jewel in the crown, Spiker the biker, pot of gold blue cab, how bigs your rock, hockey cocky I got that from Arcadia Ryde.
