Blackpool Arcade

Postby mr merrivale » Sat Jun 30, 2018 1:56 pm

Hi all
Does anybody know what happened to the old penny arcade that was in the ice cream shop that was in Chapel Street, Blackpool?
Has it moved to a new venue or has it closed? Also any contact details of the owner please.

I didn't know of it but see they have a Facebook page: Blackpool Ice Cream Kiosk and Vintage Arcade Museum and Debra Lewis posted that it was open 3 days ago.

Have you tried contacting Debbie who co-owned it with another lady. On her profile she appears to still operate up to about 6 months ago and may not be ice creams now. See video of all the nice machines....

Thanks everyone. Found it now. I was still looking for the ice cream front, but now it's crystals. I have to visit when back in Blackpool.
Well done and thanks again.

I think the other lady involved is a Sandra. Would be interesting to find out about them as there cannot be many ladies involved in old coin op, let alone operating them... Good for them. !!THUMBSX2!!

Evening.
I am trying to find where the old penny arcade has moved to from the Crystal Cave in Chapel Street, Blackpool.
Any help with a contact no for the owners Debbie and Sandra would be a great help, as I hoped to visit next week.
