We recently visited the excellent Novelty Automation amusement arcade near Holborn in London.
|A nice relaxing break|
We had great fun playing the mad arcade games. My favourite was definitely My Nuke - a personal nuclear reactor!

The arcade is full of home-made games machines built by enthusiasts. And very well built they are too. Games include Test Your Nerve, Pet or Meat?, Chiropodist, Is it art?, The Expressive Photobooth, Divorce, Money Laundering, Cycle Pong, Alien Probe, Microbreak, Instant Eclipse and Autofrisk.

They have some great merchandise for sale too. I picked up some nice badges and a keyring.

You can find Novelty Automation at 1a Princeton Street, London, WC1R 4AX and it's a five minute walk from Holborn Tube Station.
|Cycle Pong was out of order. We'll give this two player game a play next time|
It's open Wednesday to Saturday and admission is free. Each of the games costs between £1 and £3 to play - each is token operated.
|The Alien Probe is a game of precision. And surprise|
And what marvelous tokens they are too.
I'm looking forward to returning.
|A reason to return|
If you're ever visiting the East Anglian coast then I suggest you also visit Southwold Pier as it's home to the original Under the Pier Show.
|I was far better at Test Your Nerve in London than in Southwold|
There's also a FREE TOKEN offer running at the moment - check out the Novelty Automation website for more info!
