    Worth a look-in, a bunch of arcade games from the 1920's. The fortune telling machines spit out some cool vintage-esque cards.

    A typewriter that types out your horoscope

  • SFist

    This antique penny arcade is one of the consistently fun, interesting things to do on Fisherman's Wharf. There are fortune tellers, skee ball galore, and jack-in-the-boxes. It's helps to be stoned. Read more

    A gem of the wharf. Bring quarters or dollar bills and just have fun. Arm wrestle a mechanical luchador (the same from Princess Diaries) and try to set a high score (AAA).

    The best fortune telling machine is the one in the back with the zodiac signs and the typewriter. Find the guy in the machine room and have him explain how some of the machines work. Super old school.

    Lindsay Eyink · February 28, 2014
  • Steve O.

    Great old automatons and mechanical-game amusement. Needs a bit of a facelift, but great carnival-style history and hands-on fun.
