There is some fun games to try but dont except to win, and If you win some tickets, the exchange system is a real rip off. You are better to keep your minet ans but directly the item you want online.

Overall it is a good arcade and is quite fun and enjoyable with good games. But the reward system is rubbish and everything is roped off. (Takes £20 to get 1000 tickets and a toy that cost 7000 tickets only costs £22 online) the staff...More

Good fun. Use to go into all the arcades when their were more games than gambling even with tickets, but even so my wife and I had fun. Disapointed that the majority of actual computer games are gone now. Wasted some money, got some silly...More

Very abusive staff. The change machine wouldn't work and got angry when I asked for them to refund my money. He got money out of the machine and put it in the closest 2p machine. I will never take my children there again.

John [-] manager of the flamingo really disappointed my children. They won 100+40 tickets in the 'who wants to be a millionaire' machine (so we didn't count them as it tells you how many you have won) but it turns out it only gave them...More

We traipsed along to The Flamingo as Dreamland was closed, and we were not disappointed! We all (two adults, 13yr, 6yr) spent a fab hour dropping 2ps into the slot machines. And for once, kids actually won something! Two decent sized cuddly toys and over...More

Love this arcade take my daughter here regularly she wins teddys from the grab machines quite a lot. Most of the arcades you never win them. Lots to do fruit machines, dance machines, games plus lots more.
