What does a record-breaking party entail? A GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ record attempt!
We arrived around 7pm CST, ordered some yummy vegan pizza, and registered for the world-record breaking attempt (that was to happen at 7:40). We each got a wristband and an announcer helped us count down. There was plenty of time to eat and play games while we waited.
Just minutes before the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title attempt, we gathered in the VIP Birthday area and were part of the “Most People Blowing Party Blowers Simultaneously for 10 Seconds” world-record breaking event!
Besides this amazing event in which we felt and witnessed the power of working together to make something big happen, Chuck E. Cheese’s also hosted a daily sweepstakes, leading up to the 40th birthday milestone (May 19). Chuck E. Cheese’s decided to grant unsuspecting fans a chance to win a free VIP birthday party experience.
The Chuck E. Cheese’s birthday experience is a wonderful one, because Chuck E. Cheese’s is America’s number one place for birthdays! I also had a milestone birthday in December and celebrated with my children and their friends at Chuck E. Cheese’s.
With the VIP Party, you get the whole party area to yourself before the restaurant opens, for 90 minutes and you get 1,000 tickets for the birthday star.
To enter the giveaway, Chuck E. Cheese’s friends and fans can upload an image of their receipt showing that they visited a Chuck E. Cheese’s between 4/10 and 5/19 for a chance to win the VIP party for up to 20 kids. Kids can also get 40 free tickets with a minimum purchase of $5.
But if you’re like me, you are probably busy, juggling 40 different things at once (pun intended) and you think Chuck E. Cheese’s is a weekend activity – and not just any weekend, either. You’re thinking he experience to order, eat, play, visit the prize counter, get the kids to leave, and everything that a successful birthday party celebration entails can take hours… and hours… and hours. Thankfully, the new Eat & Play Express package is a time saver! You’re in and out in an hour! And the Chuck E. Cheese’s online reservation system makes it easier than ever to book your child’s birthday party, too.
Collaboration is your friend. You don’t have to do it alone! Just like record-breaking achievements take collaborative effort, so does everything else, especially motherhood.
I loved seeing my daughters working together while playing, taking turns, sharing with one another, and joining other kids in the fun. When Chuck E. Cheese’s joins the kids in the fun, everyone starts dancing to the same beat, with the same dance steps, lighting up the place with their wonder and laughter.
Maybe it’s one of my bizarre homeschooler theories, but I have experienced that the best lessons are taught while everyone is having fun. There are so many lectures, TED talks, workshops, and books about the power of collaboration, all filled with statistics, case studies, and lab work, yet I am grateful that my kids learned what we can do together when we unite for a common purpose in an atmosphere of laughter, passion, and enjoyment.
