It can seem like Chuck E. Cheese is a relic of the past. If you don’t have kids, you probably haven’t been inside one in years, and if you do have kids, you’ve probably also not been inside one – or anywhere else – for many moons, either.

Also, now that you’re an adult, the shine has definitely worn off, right? The place is dirty, there are definitely germs everywhere, and just thinking about the ball pit makes me want to gag.

That said, these 15 tweets might just take you back to the good ol’ days when it was the place to be – the stuff birthday party dreams were made of – and if you ask me, a little nostalgia is never a bad thing.

15. Huh. I never really thought about it that way.

Where can a kid not be a kid?

14. Of course it is.

You don’t need to know this to like, know this. Like, in your bones.

13. No one was going near that stage.

They might be alive. You never know for sure.

12. Through the eyes of a parent.

But honestly…it doesn’t sound like a bad way to pass a Saturday afternoon.

11. I literally just shuddered.

Anyone who was weaned on the original Chuck E. Cheese is stone cold.

10. Only the 80s could produce this mascot.

Our parents were like, “eh, sure. Why the hell not?”

9. I’m sure there was a subconscious reason.

Like he’s scary as sh%t.

8. Did someone just…make all of this up?

Because I have some followup questions.

7. Which is really a shame.

For everyone involved.

6. The face I just made.

Do not, under any circumstances, eat off the floor of a Chuck E. Cheese unless you’re trying to get superpowers. Or kill yourself.

5. It’s all in how you look at it, love.

Live a little! Dance with meningitis!

4. Is the pizza…good?

I honestly have no recollection.

3. How many stars?

At least the skeeball wasn’t broken. That would have been the real day the music died.

2. Me yelling at every band, to be honest.

Why do they think we’re still buying their records?

1. I have no idea what I just watched.

But I am in no way mad about it.



Ahhhh I can almost smell the pizza and see the creepy animatronics now.

Did you have a birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese? Was it the best? Tell us about it in the comments!
