PacMan - my parents always used to take me to the same hotel in Magaluf. The Hotel Barbados, part of a chain called Sol. They were very family friendly, and I recall them having 2 arcade machines near the pool table. One being Space Invaders and the other being PacMan. I remember my father teaching me PacMan strategy rather than just wandering around aimlessly for pills. I didn't play Space Invaders, as I was scared of the noise it made, and the Invaders themselves freaked me out. My nan used to take me to a bar (Snoopy's Bar) that had a crazy golf course. They also had a Donkey Kong machine, and as a prize for winning the crazy golf, I was allowed a go. I remember us wondering why it was called "Donkey" Kong. On the last day of the holiday, we had time to spare after packing but before heading to the hotel - so my Granded took me to another bar that had a Grand Prix game, where you used a steering wheel to drive. I thought it was the best thing ever - I felt like I was driving a real car.
