Google Maps shows you what Orlando would look like if it were a Pac-Man game

Posted By on Tue, Mar 31, 2015 at 1:43 PM

Today on Google Maps, you can turn maps of various city streets into a game of Pac-Man. 

Here's what it'd look like if Mills 50 were your board (that yellow line on the far left is Mills Avenue):

And here's what it would look like if you played the game just above Lake Eola:

Sadly, you can't really create a game out of Walt Disney World's campus, because there aren't enough roadways. But you can play Universal Orlando's City Walk area:

Rollins College Campus was kind of cool to play:

But, by far, the UCF campus made for the best Pac-Man board we could find locally:

Perfect afternoon time waster.
