Charles "Entertainment" Cheese's Halloween Boo-Tacular

Chuck E. Cheese, the number one family entertainment venue, is bringing out all the tricks and treats to make this year's Halloween celebration a truly safe and Boo-tacular delight.

"At Chuck E. Cheese, we know how much kids and families look forward to the Halloween season," says CEC CEO David McKillips. "This year, we know celebrations will look a little different and want to make sure Halloween is as safe and special as possible for our families.

"We're introducing a fully immersive Halloween experience that can be enjoyed safely in-store, at-home and online. This includes new entertainment content, exclusive menu items, touchless in-store trick or treating, daily online activities and exclusive party packages for dine-in, carry-out and delivery - to make it easy for kids of all ages to celebrate safely with Chuck E. Cheese this year and for many years to come."

A Boo-tacular Takeover
When guests visit their favorite Chuck E. Cheese, they will be immediately immersed in a Boo-tacular experience, including everything from a spooky new menu design to Halloween-themed, age-appropriate décor and photo spots.

Cast members will be dressed in costume and guests will be entranced by Chuck E.'s new Boo-tacular Dance!

Families are sure to be mesmerized by the flavors of the new holiday-inspired menu items, which include:

* Pumpkin-shaped pepperoni pizza featuring the friendliest Jack-O-Lantern smile.

* Dippin' Dots® Eye Scream with gummy worms.

* Boo-tacular Oreo® Brownie that's dangerously delish.

* Candy Corn-Colored Orange Cotton Candy that's out of this world.

* Not-So-Scary Chuck E. Cheese Halloween Theme Kids Masks available for sale individually or with the Halloween Boo-tacular Bundle.

IN-STORE: More Halloween Fun to Scream About
The treats don't stop there!

As a part of Chuck E. Cheese's Boo-tacular, guests will find more to enjoy, including:

* Throughout October any guest wearing their costume during their visit, or any guest who purchases a 30-minute All You Can Play Card, will receive a free treat bag filled with candy, stickers and other fun surprises.

* The debut of "Mr. Munch's Monster Mash-Up," an exciting new entertainment show including vignettes, music videos and a cast member-led Chuck E.'s Boo-tastic Dance every hour.

This new dance was produced with all CDC guidelines in mind and reinforces our strict safety standards and social distancing as part of the content show.

* Every Friday and Saturday night in October, Chuck E. Cheese will also host DJ Munch's Glow Parties from 6 p.m. until close.

For $14.99, guests will receive a treat bag with a collectible play band loaded with 30 minutes of All You Can Play; candy; three glow bracelets; and glow tattoos that may be worn as the lights are dimmed and the high-energy Halloween playlist is turned up.

Plus, kids can get their trick-or-treat fix safely from three designated areas within the restaurant. Cast members will use tongs for a "touchless trick or treating" experience.

Safety is Our First Priority
For the Chuck E. Cheese locations that have reopened, guests can expect enhanced health and safety protocols. These safety protocols include, but are not limited to:

* Temperature checks taken upon entrance and all guests asked to wear their masks.

* A Kid Check® Selfie, which replaces the traditional hand stamp.

* Hand sanitizing stations accessible throughout the play and dining areas.

* All games spaced out to local guidelines, or at a minimum of 6 feet apart.

* Team members sanitize all play and dining areas as well as restrooms continuously.

* In-store contactless payments and online ordering available for carryout.

* Upgraded hospital-grade air filters at each of our open locations.

* Limited capacity in each location; all entertainment is produced and hosted for the safest experience possible with all social distancing guidelines met.

Additionally, to enhance guest safety and ensure a more touchless experience, the brand recently launched e-tickets, eliminating paper tickets and the Ticket Muncher.

Instead, guests can see all of their e-tickets earned through their play card and can easily claim individually wrapped prizes at the Gift Shop.

AT-HOME & ONLINE: Bring The Halloween Fun Home With KIDZ BOP®

Cheese website and social media channels, including its Afternoon Fun Break™ featuring character vignettes, music videos, crafts and interactive activities for kids. This year Chuck E. Cheese will also debut the new Boo-tasic Dance online for kids and families to dance along at home.

For a special treat, Chuck E. Cheese and the #1 music brand for kids, KIDZ BOP®, have partnered to help guests create the ultimate At-Home Halloween Party. All carry-out and delivery specials will include an activity sheet and glow-in-the-dark temporary tattoos from KIDZ BOP® while supplies last.
