Chuck E. Cheese Addendum

Dearest Anonymous Commenter,
This is Matt Bradford, Sara's partner, and when Sara forwarded me your response this afternoon it lit a fire under my tail to find out whether or not I could definitively have my party at Chuck E. Cheese, or if I'd have to lie to have my birthday at Chuck E. Cheese.


After spending way too much time on their electronic answering service, I managed to find a section of their site online where I could get help from "a real person".


The following dialogue ensued and I can, in-fact, with 100% certainty, have the kick-off to my 27th year in the comfort of singing animatronics, endless pitchers of soda, spinning lights, tickets, and prizes, prizes, prizes!!!

We celebrated Jeff's 31 at Chuck E. Cheese. I highly recommend the band. Excellent choice of music.

Yay! Actually, I recommend everything except the ball pit. Rumor is that the kids take liberties with, um hygiene, while hidden from view in the ball pit. But man oh man - best birthday idea ever. Enjoy!

I had my 23rd birthday party at Chuck E Cheese. No one stopped me from going in the big maze thing and down the slides, though I was afraid I was too heavy for it. But my friends and I had a BLAST!!!!

That's awesome! How does it work so that you can get in, since we were told we couldn't when we tried to hold our friend's 21st b-day there a few years back...

and... HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

An LA Love, speaking from Ikea Ballroom experience; ball pit, ballroom owners must liberally clean the balls every few nights. Just sayin'

When two of my friends finished their PhDs at roughly the same time, they planned a joint party a Chuck E. Cheese. They discovered that it was much cheaper to price it as a "party" than to have each of us pay individual admission--the the only "parties" Chuck E. Cheese understands are birthdays. The staff were a little baffled when we arrived about how to handle this, but they did their best. My favorite part was that we were atually the only party there that evening--so during the show we were the only ones to be announced and congratulated. The slightly flustered woman announced, "Well, we have some very special people here today. Um, Joan is now a Dr., and Phil is now a Dr! Yea!" while the kids clinging to Chuck's legs just stared at her in baffled incomprehension. (They also couldn't comprehend that we, as adults, were doing our best to wait in lines for the games. They figured that we must be waiting for our kids to do something, and thus, they we're cutting in front of us.)

i second Niki's comment - love that you asked for a closing time and they told you opening! Hope you have a great birthday, Matt!!!

You guys seem like fair people who try to do the right thing, given your wedding philosophy. Before you host your party at Chuck E Cheese, you should be aware of some of their practices. I believe they discriminate children with disabilities who have food restrictions. http://newsanchormom.blogspot.com/2008/07/mom-child-with-autism-kicked-out-of.html

Perhaps they've changed their policy. You could ask them if a guest with an allergy could bring his/her own food to your party and then you'll know.

Just something to be aware of....

Back in the early 1980's my friend and his bride were married at the Chuck E Cheese in Anchorage Alaska.The minister required that the Big Mouse walking the bride down the aisle be a male. Other than the local tv news crew it was a normal wedding with 1/2 off the first 10 pizzas.
