Chuck E. Cheese

Chuck E. Cheese
~ U.S. American Chain ~

I’ve taken my kids to Chuckie Cheese over the years and they always have a blast. Its not that exciting for adults though. The food is mediocre. We’ve had the lunch buffet and its sparse for the amount you pay for the meal. The games are expensive and today are operated by plastic credit cards you purchase and add funds to. They zap points quick and you pay per play, even with the classic games where normally 25 cents – 50 cents gets you three players, you only get one for 25 points from the card.

With over 600 establishments nationwide and 15 other countries, their headquarters are in Irving, Texas. They are a family fun center serving pizza, sandwiches, meals, and refreshments while kids play arcade games, amusement rides, and animatronic displays of the company’s characters leading sing-a-longs.

The first location was in San Jose, California in 1977 originally as a concept by Atari co-founder Nolan Bushnell to help bring video games to the mainstream by integrating food, entertainment, and arcade together. In 1984 after bankruptcy the chain was acquired by ShowBiz Pizza forming ShowBiz Pizza Time. In 1990 they unified the two brands to Chuck E. Cheese’s Pizza.
