From rollerskating to bowling to
Whirly Ball, who can forget the birth-
day parties at Chuck E. Cheese's? The
place "where a kid can be a kid." But
what about us big kids who, although
we try to act our age, can't help but
wish for our childhood to return. The
Daily got a chance to talk to Ann Arbor
Chuck E. Cheese's manager Amanda
Moreno about this link to our child-
hood.
The Michigan Daily: What kind of
activities are there to do in the restau-
rant?
Amanda Moreno: Well, we have
Skytubes. Kids and parents can crawl
through the tubes that are suspended
from the ceiling. We also have games
and rides for toddlers and then games
for older kids and parents and the
Chuck E. Cheese Show.
TMD: Do college kids ever come in
and play games?
AM: We get mainly kids 13 or
younger, but occasionally we do get the
older kids, usually on weekends.
TMD: Is there any kind of weight
limit on the rides?
AM: Usually the rides are made
more for toddlers, but there's a couple
that adults can go on. They can crawl
through the tubes, slide down the slide
and then into the balls.
TMD: And do adults go on the
tubes?
AM: Um, I would say not really.
TMD: So are there any kind of
rules?
AM: You have to be at least 18 years
old to get in, or with your parents or
legal guardian.
TMD: Has anyone ever got kicked
out for misbehaving?
AM: We haven't had that happen yet,
thank goodness. We pretty much keep
the kids under control, like if they're
running, we tell them to walk.

TMD: And do a lot of kids come in
for birthday parties?
AM: We have probably 80 a ,,eek.
TMD: Wow, that's a lot. What about
for adults? Get any of those?
AM: I'd say about once or twice a
week we get a group of adults that
come in during the day for a party.
TMD: How much do these parties
cost?
AM: 58.99 per kid. or adult.
TMD: What do you Oet for 58.99''
AM: For every six kids you get a
medium pizza with one topping. I6
tokens for each person, unlimited pop.
a table in the studio C room, which is
decorated, for an hour and a half. a cake
and then Chucky sings Happy Birthday.
Then for another two dollars. you gTet
100 tickets of a collectible cup.
TMD: What do the "tickets get you?
AM: We have all sorts of prizes.
Stickers, a video of Chuckv, cotton
candy, remote control cars. a bunch of
Barbie stuff.
TMD: What kind of prizes do the
college kids take'?
AM: I'd say they usually get the cot-
ton candy or suckers. Sometimes they
get some of the smaller prizes as a joke
to be funny.
TMD: How do you win the tickets'
AM: All of our games gI'e out tick-
ets.
TMD: What kind of (Tames do the
adults play?
AM: They usually play Skee-ball. we
have a jet ski game, and then Star Wars.
Yeah, those are usually the ones. but
(they're) real big into Skee-ball.
TMD: So is it fun workin8 there or
does the rat get annoying'?
AM: I've worked here for almost
five years. I just had so much fun that
I stayed here and became a manager.
Sometimes people who work here have
friends come in and everyone's always
playing and dancing and stuff.
TMD: Anything I'm leaving out?
AM: Yeah, we have coupons. they'll
help out a lot.
