    Anyone know if the dubloon-maker in Port Royale is working?

    The past few trips I've made to the park, I've been planning on making some dubloons to match with my boyfriend as a cute keepsake. We're going for our 3 year anniversary this month, and I was wondering if anyone knew if the machine was working again...

    Thanks!

    The machine on average brakes down everyday. If it works, get it when the park opens because most likely it will not be working when the day ends.

    The <i>Pieces of Eight</i> machine is currently no longer in the shop. I guess it was just having too many technical issues and was removed - or they've taken it back to work on it some more... Hopefully itll return and be in working condition sometime soon!

    I hope so, I really enjoyed getting one on each of my trips there ... and it hadn't been operational for quite a while (at least when I was there).

    Well, actually it was a Pieces Of Eight maker, if you want to call it that. It was located in the store on the right hand side when you get off Pirates. You would be able to engrave stuff on one side of the Piece Of Eight ... it was a pretty good sized coin as well. I'll try to see if I can find one of mine and take a picture.

    It was where Le Bat En Rouge used to be.

    Thanks for the info. Blah. I've never been able to make one

    It was removed from Pieces of Eight about a month ago. Even when it was there it was Out of Order.

    The machine hasn't been there for about a month since I recently got a doubloon around the begining of November. Even then the machine jammed every other coin made. Literally, my sister made one just fine then some stranger tried and the coin didn't pop out, so she leaves and I try it.( I really wanted one) I pull the lever and out pops a coin with 2 layers of letters. I got a refund and tried again. The same thing happened. This time I made the coin fine and the next two either did not get it, or got it stamped with two layers. Incredibly unreliable, but I love that machine.
