I have a phobia of giant closeups of eyeballs. In one of these tracks, an enormous eyeball emerges from the water to act as a three-way fork: either go on either side of the eye, or ramp it. My older brother had to pause the game and go to bed upon seeing the giant eyeball. It is the closest I have ever got to giving someone one of my mental illnesses.

If I'm in an arcade, and I see that they have one of these machines, I'm heading straight towards it and playing for the next hour.
