Chuck E. Cheese Location in Fayetteville Celebrating Grand Reopening This Week
Fayetteville, your Chuck E Cheese location has gotten a makeover, and you can celebrate its grand reopening on Thursday, October 26!
That right, the entertainment and pizza icon, Mr. Charles Entertainment Cheese, has done some work to modernize the classic franchise location at 511 N. McPherson Church Road.
The first 25 families in line for the 5-7 p.m. event are going to get one hour of free play on games during the event, plus access to a special trunk-or-treat event.
“The fun center which has been a pillar in the community for 40 years, will include a Chuck E. Cheese Trampoline Zone to meet consumer demands and the active play needs of young children which improves their cognitive, physical, social, and emotional well-being,” a release from the company said. “Families in Fayetteville can now enjoy a multi-activity Fun Center that caters to young families and has something for everyone. ”
While it may seem like a bit of sad news, knowing the classic animatronics aren’t part of the Chuck E. Cheese experience anymore, there’s plenty to make up for it.
“Additional new features include 15 of the most popular arcade, sports and kid-focused games with varying skill levels for players of all ages, an interactive dance floor, a large format video wall and screens with audio connected throughout the fun center to provide a more immersive entertainment experience for guests and birthday parties. Additionally, entertaining the family at Chuck E. Cheese is easy, convenient and affordable with All You Can Play games’ deals that offer up to 100 games plays per hour. ”

10 of the Absolute Best Scary Book Reads for Spooky Season
The temperatures are dropping, the pumpkin patches are doing brisk business, and when spooky season rolls around, I love nothing more than curling up with a soft blankie and reading a good scary book! Not just any genre will do, however. I love to scare myself silly with a spinetingling suspense novel or a white knuckle thriller. Apparently, I’m not the only one! Studies show that people enjoy reading thriller and scary books for various reasons. Here are some possible explanations:
- Artificial “fight or flight” experience: Scary stories allow readers to experience artificial situations of “fight or flight,” which can be exciting and stimulating, without real world consequences. These scenarios, whether real or imagined, get the body ready for action and can provide a thrilling experience.
- Familiarity: Many readers have been enjoying scary stories for years and have a list of favorite authors. They enjoy the anticipation and the adrenaline rush that comes with reading these stories
- To feel strong emotions: Scary stories can evoke a range of emotions, including fear, surprise, and terror. Some readers enjoy the intense emotional experience that these stories provide
- Uplifting effect: Contrary to popular belief, tales of terror can actually be uplifting when written with that purpose in mind. They can help readers work through fear, trauma, and anxiety in a safe and controlled environment
- Exercise for the brain: Reading, in general, has many benefits for the human brain. It exercises the imagination, increases empathy, and promotes self-awareness
Horror novels may provide a unique opportunity for cognitive development and perspective-taking.
- To learn how to deal with the real world: Scary stories can help children and adults alike learn how to cope with fear and other negative emotions. They provide a safe space to examine what we’re afraid of and to talk about it
