Mom’s everywhere do not worry; this mouse will not freak you out! Chuck E. Cheese is back with a vengeance, and it is actually affordable to visit too. Chuck E. Cheese has been around for a while, and for a time it seems like it was not the fashionable thing to visit, then along came DZ, and Chuck E. Cheese seemed to get blow right out of the water, but the DZ fad died down and Chuck E. Cheese was left still standing.
Chuck E Cheese is economy friendly, all of the rides, and games cost only 1 token, so a few tokens go a long way. There are coupons on the Chuck E. Cheese website, and they are often in the Sunday paper too. This is very helpful for people who are on a budget, and yet still want our children to get out and have fun.
The food is not the best, but they do offer a wide range of things to choose from. They have pizza, along with a veggie tray you can buy to munch on, and if that is above your budget you could always get a drink or two and share them and eat at home. The coupons usually have food and coin deals along with just coin deals, so picking out what is right for you and your budget should be a cinch.
The Chuck E. Cheese in Lansing has a very nice toddler area. This area is off to one side so that the bigger kids do not mow them down while trying to get to a game. The games are perfect for little guys and it is safe enough for them to get down and walk without worry. And at one coin per ride you can allow you toddler to ride the ride that she loves, and let your bigger child play the game that she loves too.
The prizes can be bought. It is a nice touch that you can buy the prizes if the children do not earn enough tickets to get something. This means that you can get the children something to remember the day by for a minimum amount, and they feel good knowing that they helped earn their prize. Plus it helps to illuminate fighting between the kids, if they both get something there are fewer reasons for them to fight.
The stage show is up to date. They have newer pop songs that Chuck E. and his gang sing. Not only that but the television by the stage plays child friendly songs and clips from shows that are on Nick Jr. The mouse mascot still walks around the place every once in a while, if your child is scared he usually walks around, so no need to worry.
They have a security system in place. When you first enter the building, the adult and the children you come with get their hand stamped with black light ink. Meaning you cannot see it, and neither can strangers. When you walk out the door an employee checks you hand and the hands of the children that you are leaving with to make sure they match so that no one can leave with your child. This added amount of security can allow moms and dads to sit and take a breath without as much worry about their child wandering off without them.
So are you can plainly see Chuck E. Cheese is a good place to take your children and yourself to relax and have some fun together.
