Video game fanatics and connoisseurs alike have an appreciation for the classics, even if they never experienced them when they first came out. Characters and franchises like Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, and Pac-Man have been around since the dawn of video game consoles and have grown and developed with us over the years. Now, a new level of gaming is upon us, one of giant proportions and real-life thrills. A giant Pac-Man escape maze is coming to Orlando next year, and you don’t want to miss it!

The event will be popping up around October of next year, just in time for Halloween. If you say those pixilated ghosts never haunted your dreams, you’re kidding yourself.

Just like in the classic arcade game, participants will have to dodge ghosts and collect fruit to win points. There will also be the added challenge of completing a coded puzzle, trying to top the leaderboard, and even potentially being crowned the ultimate winner.

But beware — those ghosts are no joke, pixilated or not! Guests only have three lives, so be on your guard!

Whether your aim is to win big or just have fun, there’s plenty to enjoy about this event. After you complete the maze, you can check out the '80s-themed “Pixel Room” and play classic arcade games and other activities.

Tickets go on sale next week and start at $15! You can sign up for updates on their website!

In the meantime, Orlando has some awesome winter fun to check out, like Christmas at Hogwarts, and this free winter wonderland at UCF!
