The Best Birthday Parties Happen in Chuck E. Cheese!
When you think of childhood birthday parties, what comes to mind? For most of us, we think about balloons and clowns and lots of goodies. I would be willing to bet too that for most of us, there is a specific location that comes to mind as well, the place that comes to mind for me is Chuck E. Cheese’s. That’s for a good reason, Chuck E. Cheese’s is America’s number one place for birthdays and has been for a long time. I would be willing to be that many of us remember our visits from our childhood, or at the very least, the fun commercials that used to come on TV. In fact, Chuck E. Cheese is celebrating their 40th Birthday this year and they want you to celebrate your child’s birthday along with them.
Did you know that Chuck E. Cheese’s has great birthday party ideas for kids big and little? We recently celebrated my daughter Lily’s 15th Birthday and my son Anthony’s 12th birthday and Chuck E. Cheese’s had awesome birthday party selections for them. Lily had been asking for a Chuck E. Cheese birthday party for over a year and my Husband and I were a little hesitant because we thought that the birthday parties at CEC were just for little kids, but we finally gave in after watching an older teen have her birthday party at our local Chuck E. Cheese.
It made it easy to host quite a few children without having to worry about the space or cleanup. Plus, the food was delicious for kids and adults alike.

We had so much fun celebrating Lily’s and Anthony’s birthday at Chuck E. Cheese’s and definitely recommend taking your celebration there too! It is just as much, if not, more fun than you remember!
There is something very special I wanted to share, as a special needs Mom this was very important for me to tell. During the online booking there is a section near the end for notes. I wrote a small note asking if there was any way that we could also get 1 table reserved away from the main party table as I had 2 children attending who have autism and 1 child with anxiety; who sometimes need to sit alone and decompress if things get to be too much for them. I was hoping that we would have the table, but I also have seen that Chuck E. Cheese’s be so full that every table is being used.
When we arrived, I was extremely surprised, Anthony (the store manager) had reserved the entire birthday area for our party. He said he understood that the kids might need more space than 1 table, and we had the whole area to ourselves.
This meant the world to me!
The attentiveness of the entire staff, from the food allergies to the safe spaces; it was the best birthday party I have ever hosted 😉
I literally only had 1 job, to show up, every single thing was taken care of, and all of the kids had so much fun, that we are already booking the birthday party for our 13 year old at Chuck E Cheese’s!

OMG but their pizza is TERRIBLE!
The party package is impressive and interesting. My children would really love this place. Next year will try this place unless something more interesting things/place is comming up.
I will definitely pass this on to my mom friends!
This is great I just had my sons 4th birthday party there and he loved it now my 6 yr old won’t stop asking me to have his there too! haha
I think the UK has something similar to chuck-e-cheese but can not be sure. I do remember once my parents held my birthday at our local diner and I loved it.
Many years ago we had a birthday party at Chucky Cheese for our son. It was fun back than and looks like it hasn’t changed at all.
Birthday parties are so much fun at Chuck E. Cheese! I love how they take care of every little detail and the kids always have a grand time playing all the games and meeting Chuck E.
oh how i miss the days when my kids were little and we’d go here!!!
Living in the UK I have never been lucky enough to experience Chuck E Cheese, but it sounds like such an amazing place to eat and even better when it comes to a party.
My daughter loved Chuck E Cheese as a kid. Her school took a yearly field trip there, which she looked forward to.
My kids have had birthday parties at Chuck E Cheese for years. I used to have my parties at Showbiz Pizza (same place, different name) back in the 80s!
I’m gonna be completely honest. I miss Showbiz Pizza. Sorry, it’s true. Our Chuck E Cheese shut down years and years ago after health code violations, and too many people stopped going. My daughter, now 18, had a birthday party there when she was about 5 or 6. On the way home she threw up the pizza that she had eaten. We all ended up with food poisoning. It was bad.
Looks like Chuck E Cheese is still a great place to go to for birthday parties! I loved going there when I was a child.
I had no idea they have been around for 40 years. Kudos to them, they are an addictive drug for kids. I had no idea they did parties for older kids.
So fun! I remember one of my teen daughters having a friends 13th birthday there. Sort of the last hurrah she felt like for being a kid. They whole gang loved it!
Their birthday packages do sound really good. It’s nice that the kids will have so much to do while at Chuck E. Cheese’s!
This came at the perfect time! this month I have to start preparing for my son’s bday early Sept. He wants to go to Chucky Cheese for his bday! thank you for this info ; )
Birthday parties are really exciting affairs. Have fond memories of childhood parties and yes that one venue always sticks in the mind. Chuck E. Cheese seems to be an ideal and fun place for organizing happening birthday parties for kids.
I take my kids here from time to time. We always have a blast!
This sounds like such a great party idea! I had a Chuck E. Cheese party when I was a kid, and it was so much fun. It seems like there were very attentive, and it was convenient to book. I will have to keep this in mind for birthday party ideas.
We have had some of the best parties at Chuck’s. They were sometime ago. I think a visit is in order.
I have actually never been into a Chuck E Cheese but it certainly looks like a fun place for children!
I love the upgrades! I wish I had seen this before my granddaughter had her 7th brithday celebration. It would have been nice to have celebrated her birthday at Chuck E Cheese.
Chucky Cheese has always been a wonderful place to go and have a kids birthday party. All the mess stays there and so much for the kids to play and enjoy at Chucky Cheese.
It sounds like Chuck E. Cheese do the most amazing parties, I bet when I was a kid I would have loved to have had a party held there, shame we don’t have them here.
I remember going to Chuck E. Cheese’s for birthday parties when I was a kid. I just wish the new ones were as awesome as the old ones.
Fortunately I haven’t had to go to a party there in a long time. I do remember I always had fun.
We had a party there not long ago. My kids really enjoy it there and the pizza has gotten so much better. We will actually be stopping in sometime next week!
Say what you want about Chuck E Cheese, but the kids always have fun when they go. Even when I was little, I thought the robotic Chuck E Cheese band was kind of cool (does that date me?). In the end, it’s the kids birthday and they should be happy.
We often have birthdays at Chuck E Cheese. It’s such a great way to do it and I don’t have to do any clean up or host!
Chuck E Cheese parties are awesome…I only wish the restaurants in our area have the same fun and exciting environment as the others. I think the nearest one to my home is already dated and needs refurbishing.
We have been to so many bday parties at Chuck E Cheese in the last year. This year, my daughter decided she wanted her party here. It was a great experience.
I remember going to birthday parties at Chuck-E-Cheese when I was a kid. Have to keep them in mind for future parties for my kids!
WOW! I am super impressed from the hosting mama’s perspective at how well they handled everything! Esp. your requests for your “exceptional” guests. That is so cool. We’ve never had a party there, but my daughters have each attended one for school mates and had a blast!
We absolutely love Chuck E. Cheese. The kids never have a bad time when we go.
It’s definitely a great place to host parties for the kids! I’m sure they’re going to have loads of fun here especially since there’s plenty of things to do!
We had our sons 5th Birthday at Chuck E Cheese. He loved it and wanted it every year. That was many years ago, would love to do another one there! – Jeanine
We had a Chuck E Cheese party once and it was quite awesome! Takes a lot of stress off!
What fun remembering those days & it doesn’t look like much has changed. Think the last Chuck party I went to was for Danny’s 4th birthday and he’s now like 28 and in grad school, LOL
My son is obsessed with Chuck E Cheese. We hope to have his birthday there. We have the bes time there!
Wow!! This is the best way to celebrate a birthday. It can be available for children ad for adults. I think you had a blast.
I remember going to Chuck E Cheese when I was small for parties and now I haven’t been there in years. It’s nice to see that there are lots of good options for birthday parties still.
Most of my friends celebrates their kids birthday at Chuck E Cheese. This place is like a kids paradise, and as for the adult part we love their food.
I have never been to a birthday party in Chuck E Cheese but I have seen photos and it looks like SO much fun! If I had a party there, I would totally have to upgrade to the GIANT WARM COOKIES. YUM!!!
I am not gonna fight this…You are absolutely right. I did my son’s birthday at Chucky’s and it was a complete success!!! Everything is taken care of and the best part….No clean up afterwards!!!! The kids and the parents all love it!
I have never had a party for my kids there, but they love going and playing the games. They keep mentioning they want a party.
This looks like a great place to have a birthday party. Chuck e cheese has always been a nice and easy go to for parents. Thank you for showing just how awesome they still are!
I have never heard of Chuck & Cheese before. Sounds like a cool place for kids. I had been invited to some birthdays in mcdonalds when I was a kid and it was always so much fun. this might be fun too
This brings back so many great memories! When my kids were younger, we had more that one party at Chuck E Cheese. Not only are there fun games to play, but their pizza is super delish! ps: Happy Birthday to Lily and Anthony! x
My daughter had some really good parties at Chuck E. Cheese when she was younger. But as she has grown she has wanted to do different things. They do it right over there for sure.
I remember always wanting to go there as a kid, but we never lived near one until I was well into my teens. Seems like the perfect place for a birthday party!
Wow, such a lovely place. Looks like the best place for a group party with events for kids . Will let my friends in the US know if they ever plan on having a group party for their kids.
Looks like fun! Im from another country and I am not that familiar with Chuck e cheese, what type of food do they serve?
My kids LOVE chuckie Cheese but sometimes it is so busy from too many parties at once, at least at the locations by me. They are also great with school fundraising nights and even off all teachers who show up a free meal. We like the salad bar there
It sounds like Chuck E Cheese is the best place to held a party. It’s so awesome that they reserved the entire place to accommodate your needs.
Chuck E. Cheese’s sure looks amazing and would be every Child’s dream to celebrate their birthday there.
Honestly it looks like Chuck E Cheese offer the best birthday parties, I am such as a I kid if I had, had the option of going here for a party I definitely would have.
Looks like such a fun time. I’d love to do a Chuck E Cheese party for my son, he’s 5. Great party idea.
My kids have always loved ChuckECheese! Although we have never had a birthday party through their service, we always have a great time when we go. All my kids are older now but I always have the grand kids!!!
I love Chuck-e-cheese when I was younger. I still take my nieces and nephews sometimes. They love playing all the games and getting tickets.
I like that they have tailored party packages. I have never heard of Chuck E Cheeses but they sound like a great party provider x
I haven’t been to Chuck E. Cheese in forever! Recently I went to a Dave and Busters arcade and had so much fun. It’s cool to know older kids are having birthdays at Chuck E. Cheese. It’s really nice to hear how they did everything they could to accommodate your needs/wishes. Glad your children’s birthday party went well!
Having such party packages makes it really easy and stress free to mommies out there. Will let my mommy colleagues check about this as well.
I was thinking about having my daughter’s 4th birthday at Chuck E Cheese! We have one about 30min away from our house.
What a cute party! Does they cater a similar party theme but for adults?
Seems like the party was a blast. It’s awesome to know that the manager of Chuck E Cheese made some kind consideration. Kudos to him for contributing to the best birthday party.
Don’t have chuck e cheese here but it looks like such a fun place!
I’ve planned several birthday parties for my kids at Chuck E. Cheese’s. It’s so easy and the kids always have a blast!
Well, I may be a little old for this place myself, but you’ve done a good job selling it to my future children! Thanks!
We used to spend every birthday at Chuck E. Cheese. Now that the kids are much older, the magic has sadly disappeared!
We love chuck e cheese! We always have such a blast! Hopefully next year we can plan a party there for the boys!
Such a fun place for parties for sure. I’ve been having parties at Chuck E. Cheese since my first child was born.
haha..my daughter would constantly say that I didn’t love her because I never took her to Chucky Cheeses. There was never one in our area. When one finally opened in Brooklyn, she was already 18 so, I got her a package for her and her friends. She loved it…You’re never to old for Chucky Cheese and now she can’t say that I don’t love her…lol. BTW, their new pizzas are delicious!.
Looks like it’s a great place for celebrations where both young and old will enjoy. It is good that there are a lot of options to choose from so the celebrant can personalize the party.
This both sounds and looks great. Lovely pictures.
Thank you Blair! Yes, they have different themes to choose from, I am having a Rockstar birthday party for myself in November 😉
They serve pizza, chicken wings and strips, salads, sub sandwiches, and are always adding new items 😉
We were just a Chuck E Cheese this week. Our 3 year old loves it. We went to celebrate my nieces bday. It was a quiet day and we practically had the place to ourselves. I do think this is a good party location on a not so busy day, you get to truly enjoy the games.
