Chuck E. Cheese Birthday Party For Kids

My endearing, just-turned three-year-old hounded me for several months about celebrating his 3rd birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese. I think he started his crusade in May...and his birthday is in August!

When I paid a visit to the website, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that a lot of things have drastically changed at Chuck E. Cheese since I was a kid. They have a ton of coupons and deals for anyone that is interested in taking their kids to have some fun.

Have The Birthday Party Catered, Tired Mom

Birthday parties are easy! As a mother that is used to orchestrating everything, it was nice to place an order on the internet and have the whole party organized and catered. I'll tell you a secret: book the party online and you will automatically receive 20 free tokens. We set the party up for Sunday, which also qualifies you for another 100 free tokens. The birthday child receives a blow-up crown with EVEN MORE tokens on it (I think there were 8 to 10) as well.  Each child receives 20 tokens each, 2 pieces of pizza and unlimited drinks. Another secret? Although it was early for a birthday party, we booked the 9:30 AM spot and had the whole place to ourselves! At 11:30, when we decided to end the party, the place was starting to get packed.

Have The Party Set Up For You, Too!

The Chuck E. Cheese staff sets the tables, the plates and cups and tablecloth...all of the little details that are part of a birthday party...are there for you, set up and ready to go. You can order the cake and ice cream through the website, too (as well as any other "optional" foods, including party platters). They even put the candles on the cake. How's that for a completely catered party?

The kids played and played and played, stopping for pizza once and the birthday cake a little while later. Chuck E. Cheese made his appearance when the cake came out, sang "Happy Birthday", and then we moved on to the best part...

The Ticket Blaster Experience

The highlight of the party at Chuck E. Cheese is the new Ticket Blaster. Have you ever seen one of those booths that shoots air inside of it, blowing money all over the place with someone inside of it trying to grab all of the money? That's the Ticket Blaster...only this booth blows tickets. The birthday child can choose someone to accompany them in the Ticket Blaster to help them grab all of the tickets that they can in thirty seconds. Because of this machine, all of my kids want to go to Chuck E. Cheese for their birthdays.

I Love Budget-Friendly!

For a family the size of mine, this was a very economical party with plenty of benefits. Everything that I mentioned cost about $70 for our family (keep in mind, we have 5 kids we had to pay for-the baby was free). We even walked out, after two hours of playing and fun, with at least 50 tokens still in hand for the next trip to Chuck E. Cheese!
