The Blackpool Tower is a tourist attraction in Blackpool, Lancashire, England, which was opened to the public on 14 May 1894. Inspired by the Eiffel Tower in Paris, it is 158 metres (518 feet) and is the 100th tallest tower in the world. The tower is a Grade I listed building.

Machines 1 through 4 are Retired.

The machines are the new GEM series machines, with the video display screens. Your penny is provided, unfortunately not the shiniest examples. Each penny costs £1 as usual, all the pennies have the solid ring border.
