When I was little we used to wish for birthday party’s at Chuck E Cheese’s. I still remember wanting to watch the show and play the games but our local Chuck E Cheese’s wasn’t very close so we only got to visit on special occasions. Fast forward almost twenty-five years and I have two kids of my own. One rainy Saturday we decided to surprise them with their first trip to Chuck E Cheese’s.
Walking in I noticed just how much had changed (in an amazing way) since my last visit. We walked in to a bright, clean and secure land of fun. Upon checking in, each person in your group is stamped with a matching number that can only be seen with a black light. Everyone is checked before leaving so you don’t have to worry about someone leaving with the wrong person. I immediately felt more at ease, especially with Lovebug who is a runner.
I immediately noticed how clean everything was. Chuck E. Cheese’s partnered with Kids Play Safe and implemented eco-friendly cleaning practices to provide a safe, healthy play environment for kids in stores nationwide. The staff cleans everything every hour so you can feel secure that your children are playing in a clean and safe place.
The kids had a blast playing the games. We loaded up the game card (so much easier to hold then the old tokens) and started in on the fun. The games were only on credit each so our money really went far. The cards are reloadable and you can grab all kinds of packages with food and game play. They even have a great coupon section on their website to help save and plan!
Speaking of food, Chuck E Cheese revamped their menu! It’s not just pizza anymore. You can find all types of healthy options. From wraps, sandwiches and even a salad bar. The kids loved the “stuffed-crust” pizza and we enjoyed salad. They even have gluten free options for those that need them.
We had a blast during our visit. The kids got to meet Chuck E Cheese and dance with the animatronic cast on stage that still holds a hint of nostalgia for the parents! We started our day early and the kids were worn out by nap. It was perfect for a rainy, cold day but I know what we are going to be doing when the New England heat hits too!
