Good news for big brothers and sisters who rip through all of their tokens and then have to spend the rest of the afternoon waiting for their younger siblings to finish playing Skee-Ball — Chuck E. Cheese’s has launched a timed play program. The “All You Can Play” option makes tokens obsolete and provides unlimited gameplay within a set timeframe, starting at $9 for 30 minutes.
It looks like it’s going to be even more difficult to pass Chuck E. Cheese tokens off as Bitcoins than ever before.
Although playtime is on the clock, gamers have the option to pause twice per session when it’s time for a snack or bathroom break.
"All You Can Play provides a rewarding way to infuse more play into everyday by limiting the restrictions caused by budgets and busy schedules," Ashley Zickefoose, chief marketing and concept officer of CEC Entertainment Inc., said in a statement.
As you’re probably wondering, the answer is yes. Chuck E. Cheese does also have an unlimited pizza deal. According to their menu, an All-You-Can-Eat Buffet is available Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., and includes salad, pizza, and dessert.
If you’re too hangry to deal with the noise of children playing Hungry Hungry Hippos, you can have a Chuck E. Cheese meal delivered to your home through one of your favorite delivery services, including Grubhub, Uber Eats, and DoorDash. That’s a great way to chow down on one of America’s favorite pizza chains.
