Unlimited Games

Unlimited games (all you can play)$12 – $15 per hour

Chuck E Cheese locations are starting to roll out an unlimited game play option where you can now pay by the hour so your kids can play as many games as they want during that time.

This can often work out to being cheaper than paying for tokens.

How to Play

Chuck E. Cheese has 2 ways to play. Keep in mind, they don’t sell tokens anymore. Rather they use a play pass card.

Play Pass Card

The Play Pass card has now replaced tokens and it will cost you $1 to purchase a card. Included in that purchase is 3 play points or 3 play minutes depending on which you select.

You can also purchse the play pass with or without a coil wristband. I do recommend you put a band on the card to go around your child’s wrist so they don’t set it down to play and lose it.

You can also use another band or a hair tie that you bring from home if you don’t want to pay the extra $2 per card for the wristband.

Rechargeable Play Ban

The rechardable play band goes on more like a watch and costs $5 per band. Kids can simply wave their band at each game to play instead of swiping the card.
