Four electric machines and a 4 die hand cranked machine are located here, 1 at the entrance to the shop and 4 inside Zoo itself.

All pennies now cost £1.

Machine 1: Elephant House, to the left of the entrance door. Design: Elephant. Text: 'Blackpool Zoo' (the word ''zoo'' is sunken into the elephant). This is a new machine with the same design.
