Chuck E. Cheese's is THE place to throw a party. Let them take the stress of birthday party planning away from you and check out the party packages #ad #party

Summer is birthday party season around here!

The thing is, I’m really the only one away from home! Out of five kids, I’m currently the only one to have ever left New Jersey and stayed out of state too. While I love our Massachusetts life, and I probably sing it from the rooftops a little too often, that doesn’t mean I don’t feel left out. My parents, four siblings, and adorable nieces and nephews all live in one place while we’re here. This was the one year that none of my family members could go to my kids’ birthday parties here.

So then I got a great idea.

I decided to find a way to throw a party for my kids that would include my New Jersey family. So we took a bit of a dream trip down there to celebrate all together again. I wanted to take the stress out of planning a birthday party, so I decided to let Chuck E. Cheese’s do it all for me. Their latest and greatest new party offerings are awesome! I researched a location in New Jersey that would be easy for all of my family members to get to, and I found a day in which everyone could attend.

Party time!

We had about 10 kids and 10 adults. I booked the “Eat More Play More Birthday Package,” geared towards children eight and up. The package is the same price as the “Super Star Package” and includes three slices of pizza per child as well as drinks. It also includes 10 points/tokens more than “Super Star” (55 points/tokens in most locations, including ours), two hours of reserved table space, a dedicated party host (ours was AMAZING), and the Ticket Blaster experience with a chance to catch the Golden Ticket. Scarlet was feeling a little shy but they let birthday boy Des take my nephew, Andrew, with him.

You can reserve a VIP Party on a Saturday on Sunday and get the whole party area to yourself with the earliest timeslot, before the restaurant opens, for one hour! There’s a new, “Sweet Summer Birthday Promotion” with free cotton candy for parties with 12+ children – booked and held by 9/30. Next, there’s “Unlimited Play.” Chuck E. Cheese’s has almost phased out tokens in favor of Play Pass – the programmable card that enables the restaurant to offer discounts during certain times of the day, including “Unlimited Play.” This is offered with the “Mega Super Star” birthday package and “All You Can Play” on Wednesdays. It’s easy to see why Chuck E. Cheese’s is America’s number one place for birthdays.

With new birthday party offerings, new cakes, ice cream, Dippin’ dots, and Giant Warm Cookies, this is the place my kids want to be. There’s “The Super Goodie Bag” – bigger goodie bags with more toys, as well as new birthday party themes to choose from! They are “Party Like a Rock Star,” “Sports, Sports, Sports,” “Dressed in Pink Party,” and “Chuck E. Super Fan.” You can see why kids love to party here but for adults, it’s a treat as well. I loved the easy online reservation system, the customizable party invitations, our wonderful dedicated host, and how all we had to do was come with our birthday kids!

They took care of EVERYTHING!

Just look at all these smiling faces! Thank you, Chuck E. Cheese’s!

On a personal note, I loved the service and attention to detail. I loved the lack of stress. And I loved that I could get all of my family together again – having fun, eating lunch, having cake, and going into the Ticket Blaster experience too.

Our Amazing Chuck E. Cheese’s Family Birthday Party — 8 Comments

  1. I hadn’t been to a Chuck E Cheese in years, but went this summer, that place is a blast! Not just for the kids too 🙂 Glad that Scarlet and Des had fun!

  2. Haven’t been there in ages and admit when the girls were younger this seemed to be the party place to be. But as they are getting older not so much here apparently. But loved the party you threw and looks like they did a great job accommodating all here 🙂

  3. I loved Chuck E Cheese growing up, but since I’ve been out of the kid game for a long time I have no idea if kids still had their birthday parties there. I love that you are a Jersey Girl. The guy I’m dating is from Jersey and every time I reference your blog he tells me how awesome you are because you are from Jersey. I love that about your state, you guys really stick together. Your party looks like a fun family reunion, there’s nothing better than that.

  4. That’s really cool that they now have VIP party package that allows you to have a party before the restaurant opens to everyone. We have had two birthday parties for our kids at Chuck E. Cheese’s and they were both on weeknights to avoid the weekend crowds.

  5. It sounds like they are revamped and upped their game over there! It sounds like they did a FANTASTIC job with running the show! I am SO glad you got to go back home and have this party with your family. I’m sure EVERYONE was thrilled with the idea! I haven’t been to Chuck E Cheese’s in FOREVER.

    I would definitely plan the ‘before it opens’ VIP party. lol That is the way to go. 🙂
