Chuck E. Cheese revamp in Davenport
Chuck E. Cheese in Davenport is getting a new look.
The remodel, part of a nationwide rebranding by the company, will be unveiled with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Jan. 9, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at 903 E. Kimberly Road. Some new features include the robotic band leaving for a centralized dance floor where Chuck E. makes a live appearance every hour, according to a news release.
Children’s feet will light up as they move across the dance floor. Parents will no longer have to have tokens to play games, instead utilizing a play pass loaded with time in which kids can play as many games as possible within the timeframe purchased.
Other updates include a new logo and changes in color scheme, updated furniture and brighter lighting. There are also menu changes, such as the addition of BBQ chicken pizza and an “endless” salad bar.
