Escape the coloured ghosts and nab fruit in a real life Pac-Man maze

For generations, easily distracted kids and teens have gone crossed-eyed after spending hours playing Pac-Man. Whether you know the maze from the original 1980 Namco arcade game or from the App Store, you’re likely to have known the highs of gobbling power pellets and bonus fruit, and the bitter disappointment of Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde catching up with you.

Now, those childhood pixelated joys are coming to Melbourne. A huge Pac-Man themed maze is descending on Williamstown this August, where racers will be tasked with collecting fruit, decoding puzzles and outsmarting the ghosts. At the end of the race, you can keep the fun rolling with an ’80s themed pop-up party featuring original gaming machines and a DJ spinning nostalgic tracks.

You can teach your kids the old ways in Saturday sessions from 11am-6pm, but it’s an adults-only affair in the evening.
