Saw this online and took the trip down today after work.
I came away with nothing, but that's only because I'm fussy and I have a full room now, but you never know, you gotta go right....whilst I was waiting for the owner to come I popped across to Dimes and played on Addams Family & Dirty Harry pins....and after nearly 30 years of hating on pins (but not playing them), I really enjoyed it, maybe it's an age thing...

Back to the facts...


If you're looking for a Fruit Machine, a Ride On , or Jamma Cabs, could be worth a visit.
They have two premises, which is the main arcade (now closed) and the overflow building in the old pleasure park, I visited both, they are close together and walking distance.

No Pins.

They have about 100 Fruit machines that need to find homes in the next 2 weeks, so I'm sure you can get a deal.

They had 3 massive leisure 2000 jamma cabs, a Wrestlefest stickered Jamma cab, Spiderman stickered Cab, and a few others that looked beat up. A massive Midway cab with more guns that I could count, can't remember the name now.

I enquired on the most beat up one and the girl said £200, but to be honest I wasn't even looking to buy a Jamma cab so I just said the price was half that at the very best. They need to have everything gone before the dozers come anyway, so maybe if you chance it they'll take a tenner - who knows...

So.  No Gorfs, Berzerks etc.
I asked on boards, and they are trying to sell the games complete, but don't know what's inside, so I couldn't go rummaging for a Rainbow Islands/Bubble Bobble / etc etc...but that may change when the clock ticks.
They had other boards, but they looked like fruity ones.

So good luck if you make the trip, head to the seafront, ask in Hyper Value, its the same owners and they'll take you from there.

Please post here if you get anything.

Always sad to see another arcade bite the dust :(

Hopefully they can get back a decent amount of cash from the sales.

I want a dedicated WWF Wrestlefest cab. . . but this has come at the worst time, and I don't have transport. Ouch

This wasn't dedicated, just had all the stickers. Just updated my post just in case anyone makes the trip hoping to see something different.

If anyone is going and they have some seaside/cafe style signs, like Ice Cream, Coke, Pepsi, that sort of thing, let me know.
Cheers

@Bensonrad If you make contact and ask, and if you see anything you like, I'll go and collect them for you, it's not far from me. Needs to fit in a Clio though ;-)

I have been chasing this lot for a couple of weeks but with all the pictures they sent me it looks mainly a lot of junk. Pcbs will only be sold with cabs!!!!

Hope you find something.
Always looking for a bargain!!!

Hi All,
Thought I'd bring this post back to life as I find it quite funny how everything had to go in two weeks. And two years later I've just picked up three cabs from here - all with issues but got them for a decent price.
I've been out of Jamma cabs for around 10 years so need to learn a lot again to get them up and running.
Not much left for sale with them other than a few fruit machines and two big Leisure 2000 cabs which are supposed to be picked up soon. There is a Sega board there, Virtua Racing I think.

Got any pictures of your cabs.  My Outrun and Paperboy both came from an arcade in Barry

Only of them squashed into my garage.

They don't show the massive chunk missing from the Spiderman cab.
I got three boards, moomesa, hypersports and Captain America. All untested.
