A friend of mine was on the organising team for a games event called Game City last year in Nottingham (in fact the next one is about to take place at the end of the month) and he organised a whole load of retro cabs to appear in places across Nottingham. Both the public and the venues went wild for them !

Anyway point is that he hired them from someone he knows who provides these old cabs to places across the country (and fixes them too). He's away just now but when he's back net week I'll see if he knows anywhere where they still put a lot of them.

There may be some classic Arcade Cabs on Cleethorpes Sea Front.

There's at least 1 Simpsons game on there still.

aaaaaaggggggggggghhhhhHunstanton.... do those people know about maintaining their machines.

They are all knackered, and the pinball tables are worse.  :-X

the only worse place is the pathetic attempt at an arcade in the Have Holiday/Prison Camp in Great Yarmouth.

I went to the Haven prison camp in Great Yarmouth in 1992. It wasn't too bad back then.

We played that Simpson's cab to death nearly  :P
