Chuck E. Cheese’s® Continues its 40th Birthday Celebration by Making Wishes Come True

Family Dining and Entertainment Leader Gives Away 40 VIP Birthdays, Grants 40 Make-A-Wish® Parties

DALLAS, April 12, 2017 – America’s number one place for birthdays is celebrating 40 years of fun by hosting a VIP birthday party sweepstakes for 40 days, giving away 40 free tickets to every kid, and granting 40 parties for Make-A-Wish® kids.

40 Days of Tickets and VIP Birthday Giveaways

In honor of its birthday, and in the 40 days leading up to the milestone event on May 19, Chuck E. Cheese’s is giving away 40 free tickets to every kid (with a $5 minimum purchase), and is hosting a daily sweepstakes to give away a VIP birthday party to 40 lucky fans.

To enter, fans can visit and upload an image of their receipt showing that they visited a Chuck E. Cheese’s between April 10 and May 19 for a chance to win a VIP birthday party for up to 20 kids. The VIP birthday experience includes being the only reserved party in the showroom and all-you-can-play games and rides for two hours during the party! 

Chuck E. Cheese’s Helps Grant 40 Wishes  

This month, in partnership with Make-A-Wish, Chuck E. Cheese’s is hosting 40 parties for children with critical illnesses leading up to World Wish Day® on April 29, which is the anniversary of the wish that inspired the founding of the organization in 1980. Chuck E. Cheese’s has been working with Make-A-Wish for many years, often being selected as the “reveal” location when a child’s wish is announced, or granted for the very first time.

“Having a reveal moment or party is a huge milestone for children with life-threatening medical conditions,” said Scotty Landry, CEO of Make-A-Wish North Texas, one of 62 chapters granting wishes around the U.S. “A wish plays an important role in a child’s treatment and we are thrilled to partner with the birthday party pros at Chuck E. Cheese’s to give these kids a celebration to remember as part of their wish journey.”

Biggest Birthday Ever

The 40th fun doesn’t stop there; guests are invited to visit their local Chuck E. Cheese’s restaurant on Friday, May 19 for the ‘Biggest, Birthday Ever!’ Each child will receive 40 free tickets, a piece of birthday cake (while supplies last), a branded birthday blower, and the chance to participate in a record-breaking stunt. Additional details will be announced later this month.
