How to Find the "Secret Hiding Place" in Pac Man

Almost every arcade these days has retro-games and inevitably, you will find Pac-Man in the mix. So if you want to kill some time and seriously rack up the points, you can use the secret hiding place.

To avoid losing a life when the ghosts are out and looking for you, all you need to do is head to the secret place. But you need to get there without being seen by a ghost, basically be in its line of sight. If you can continually get to this secret place you will continue to rack up fantastic scores.

A word of note however. This trick will only work on the original arcades and MAME, so there is no point trying this on an old NES game or a new smart phone. Sorry to disappoint a little. Watch this video for a demonstration of this neat little Pacman trick.
