Flick-O-Rama Penny Arcade - Rhyl Children's Village

Post by Guest »

Hi, fantastic site, just wanted to let you know of another old penny arcade that I have visited. It is on the seafront at Rhyl, North Wales, above the underground seafront car park, next to the carousel. Sorry, don't recall the name. Strictly old penny machines only. There are about 40 machines in there. Not been for a couple of years but would be surprised if it wasn't still there now. Was very popular when I visited.

Can anyone confirm its location and whether it's still there?

Keep up the good work!

After making enquiries, it appears that the vintage arcade at THE CHILDRENS' VILLAGE, RHYL has now closed. It has not been open since the end of 2004 season. I will keep you posted on any further information.

Topic merged- Site Admin.

Had a bit of a gander to see if anyone else had posted similar, and not too much luck, so thought I'd ask if anyone has any photo's or memories of the penny arcade that used to reside in the Children's Village, Rhyl, North Wales circa late 90's, early 2000's?

It's a shame it appeared to come and quickly go. I'm assuming vintage didn't have the same pull it does today. :!?!:
