Chuck E. Cheese Revamping the Experience!

Chuck E. Cheese, known for its family-friendly fun, is taking things up a notch with a new project designed specifically for grown-ups. Teaming up with Magical Elves, a reality TV production company, the company is set to create a reality show where adults will compete in larger-than-life versions of arcade classics such as pinball, air hockey, and the claw machine.

Contestants on the show will go head-to-head, with winners earning tokens that can be exchanged for prizes from the famous Chuck E. Cheese prize wall—this time in larger-than-life editions.

“Chuck E. Cheese is the place where a kid can be a kid—but as adults, we still have dreams of owning the arcade, taking on the classic games we love,” said Magical Elves co-CEOs Jo Sharon and Casey Kriley in a joint statement. “We’re excited to celebrate these iconic arcade games, as well as the best of today, all with an oversized twist.”

The project, facilitated by Creative Artists Agency, is part of Chuck E. Cheese’s new global licensing, media, and entertainment division.

This announcement comes at a time when Chuck E. Cheese’s parent company, CEC Entertainment, has been developing a reorganization strategy with Goldman Sachs to attract potential buyers and investors. The expected deal could potentially bring in about $1.2 billion. Previously, the chain, purchased by Apollo Global Management for $1.3 billion in 2014, emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in December 2020 through a financial restructuring.

Chuck E. Cheese’s venture into reality television for grown-ups represents an innovative move for the company, blending nostalgia with modern entertainment in a unique way.
