Chuck E Cheese Edmonton Review
It was a nippy Edmonton winter day...and it had been like that for quite sometime. The kids were getting a little stir crazy in the house and although they wanted to go out and run around - the cold around here doesn't make that practical all the time.
We needed to find something fun to do inside.
A friend suggested Chuck E Cheese Edmonton. She rounded up a bunch of moms and kids - set the date - and we were Chuck E Cheese bound.
I'd never been there before - so I didn't know what it was like. I've included some Edmonton Chuck E Cheese Pictures for you to browse.
When we arrived, I was happily surprised. I thought that the place would be crawling with kids and adults alike. I was sure that I was going to have to spend most of my time making sure my kids didn't get lost in the maze of people.
But no, when I arrived, we were the only people there. We had free run of the place the whole time we were there. We went just after the store opened and I guess the rest of Edmonton just doesn't want to be there that early in the morning. Don't know if I should spill our secret!
When we left around noon, people were starting to trickle in.
I think things could get a little chaotic and not as fun if you were to come on a busy day, however.
Chuck E Cheese Edmonton Cleanliness
I had also heard that Chuck E Cheese play areas have a reputation for being dirty, but again, I was pleasantly surprised. The place was extremely clean - even the games themselves were sparkling. In fact, the entire time that we were there, several Chuck E Cheese employees were cleaning the games and arcades.
Chuck E Cheese Games
The other thing I had wondered about was - would Chuck E Cheese Edmonton have anything for toddlers to do? I had thought this restaurant had a lot of arcade games. But there was plenty for toddlers to do. They even had a toddler section - complete with little slide and gentle ride on toys like Bob the Builder and Clifford.
There was also a section of games for older children that the toddlers even enjoyed - like a large Kentucky Derby horse, a car ride where you get your picture taken, and a simulation ride of going down a roller coaster. There was also a tunnel playground structure that kids could climb through and slide down - kind of like what they have in a McDonalds' Play Place.
Then, of course, there were games that older elementary kids would enjoy - like arcade type games and shoot the basketball in the hoop.
Chuck E Cheese Tokens
You need to have tokens to play with the Chuck E Cheese games (except for the climb on toys). Each game takes 1 token. A few hours at Chuck E Cheese can get pretty expensive then.
The best thing to do is to establish ahead of time how many tokens each child gets - and when they're done - they're done. They can still have fun with the climb on toys and if they're young enough - it's almost just as fun just to sit in the Bob the Builder truck as it is to ride on it!
A trick to get some free tokens and Chuck E Cheese coupons is to sign up each of your children to the email Club - you'll get some free tokens instantly, then you'll get free tokens for their birthday, and some free tokens for their half birthday!
Chuck E Cheese Pizza and Food
Sorry - I didn't try the pizza when we went and I forgot to look at the prices - but I think it's pretty expensive.
I did try some fries though and they were pretty good.
Chuck E Cheese Edmonton Birthday Party
A birthday party at Chuck E Cheese is a pretty popular idea. If you're planning on having a birthday party at this restaurant, here are some things to think about.
Try to plan the party at a less busy time - when people are not likely to be there.
Make sure you have enough adult supervision. It would be hard to keep track of all the kids here - the younger the age, the higher the parent to child ratio is needed.
It may get a little pricey depending on how many kids you have. Give each child a set amount of tokens to use or give each child a set amount of tokens every 15 minutes or so.
Hope you enjoyed the Chuck E Cheese Pictures and I hope you have a wonderful trip to your Edmonton Chuck E Cheese.
