Did you know your favorite birthday spot as a child is celebrating a birthday of its own this year? On May 19th, Chuck E’ Cheese’s will be celebrating its 40thbirthday at locations around the country with an attempt to set a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDSTM title for the most birthday blowers blown simultaneously. Each participating location will offer free cake while supplies last, 40 free tickets with a $5 minimum purchase and birthday blowers to get the party started. The stunt will take place at 7:40 p.m. CST / 8:40 p.m. EST.

The first Chuck E. Cheese’s store opened in 1977 in San Jose, CA. Since then, the iconic family entertainment brand has made numerous changes including adding new, more adult-friendly menu items but remains America’s number one place for birthdays. Most recently, Chuck E. Cheese’s launched a program for children and families impacted by autism, called Sensory Sensitive Sundays. Throughout 40 years of the brand’s existence, Chuck E’ Cheese’s continues to be Where a Kid Can Be a Kid.
