Ok moms! If you are always looking for fun places to take the kids, I have a great option for you! It’s not new, in fact, we have been visiting Chuck E. Cheese for years … BUT it kind of feels new because the folks behind the scenes at Chuck E. Cheese have made a lot of changes, and these are all changes that moms are going to LOVE!
As always, Chuck E. Cheese is packed with games and fun for the whole family. I love that they have games for a wide variety of ages, and quite a few games that are really awesome for family fun. I love to play any kind of games with my kids, and they know that I am always up for a Skee-Ball challenge! We met up with a friend and her twin toddlers, and I have to tell you, we had a ball! My two kids loved showing the twins around and the twins, well they were in heaven!
I think that any child will enjoy Chuck E. Cheese, but the great news is that moms can enjoy it too! They have a wonderful salad bar (and I’m really picky about my salad bars!). They keep it stocked with fresh products and they have some great toppings. I especially love the sesame crouton thingy-s … they are my favorite! Plus: $6.99 for an unlimited salad bar? Yes please!
Speaking of fresh. Along with their new menu items, Chuck E. Cheese is now boasting fresh and handmade pizza, right down to the dough! I was able to see it first hand, as they gave us a kitchen tour, which included a visit to the cooler. I was so impressed with how clean and organized they keep their products, and I was most impressed to see that they actually make their own dough!
Sometimes seeing the process of how things are made can really influence the way that you think about them. After our visit to the kitchen, I was really impressed with how clean (spotless, really) and organized they run their kitchen. Everything has a place, and each step is totally regulated by different rules and procedures. That really made an impression on us, and it definitely made me feel excited about the food we were going to be eating.
Another bonus for moms (and dads!) at Chuck E. Cheese is the FREE wifi. It makes it nice if you have to check email or get caught up on work, especially if your kids are old enough to play with friends like mine are. It is a win/win for us both because they get to play, and I can get a bit of work done without feeling guilty!

I’m just thrilled with the newest changes to Chuck E. Cheese, we really had a fun visit! We have been going to our local Chuck E. Cheese since my kids were little.
