Putting the FUN back into machines! - Open 7 Days


This is a page dedicated to the OLD look Mr P's Classic Amusements.

This arcade was born in 2009 and was fully operational until 26th July 2014. The arcade created so many friendships and memories for so many people.

Due to our commitment and popular demand for the arcade to re-open, we decided to bring the magic back and open our doors again on 6th June 2015, this time as an AGC. New look, new concept and plenty of fresh buzz into the arcade where it all began!

The arcades re-opening BOMBED and closed its doors for the FINAL time on 21st November 2015. 

We would like to thank everyone that came to enjoy our classic arcade that now lives on in Tonbridge and Chatham.

The Crane!
The Crane!
We opened up with a crane only to never get it running! So the machine was stored and still doesn't run today! It seems so long ago now!
The FIRST middle run!
This was how the arcade looked as you walked in when the year was 2009! Check out the old electro mechanical at the back, sadly this never got played!

We opened up with Roller Coaster but the roms were damaged, so we had to open without her running!

This machine was on of the most popular and enjoyed machines of Mr P's Classic Amusements history. Sadly on the return for the last couple of months of the arcade the machine was a huge flop.
Classic Small Cabinet BFM fruit machines
These classic Bell Fruit machines looked awesome lined up. We were proud to have these in the arcade. Cops N Robbers was one of the few machines that remained in the arcade the ENTIRE time.

These retro JPM fruit machines were a selection to reckon with! Many people enjoyed these fun machines.
The 'Wallpaper Wall'
We used to call this predominately 5p stake selection the 'wallpaper wall'. This is largely down to the majority of people liking the games but not on 5p. We liked to cater for all, and will continue to do so in the future.

Crystal Maze was a anchor machine to the arcade, and until the final days was still extremely popular. The machine was running everyday since the arcades launch and survived well!
Another long stay!
Popeye Treasure Hunt was in the arcade from day one to day end. This classic JPM fruit machine is a classic fruit machine and is rarer than its sister, Popeye.
Another long stay!
Indy...look!

More classic JPM fruit machines, especially the classic Ricochet JPM fruit machine and Indiana Jones.

The OLD promotion wheel
This was brought in for a Christmas 2009 promotion but remained until it broke. We loved this wheel, this is the version with 'hi/lo notes' included.
