Chuck E. Cheese’s, the popular arcade and game center popular with kids across the world, is giving kids with autism and special needs a chance to enjoy all the fun and games.
The company has unveiled “Sensory Sensitive Sundays”, in which select locations open two hours early on the first Sunday of each month. During that time, the lighting is lowered while music and the show is either lowered or turned off.
There will also be limited appearances by the popular mascot, Chuck E., while food and games are offered as they would be during normal hours.
Two locations in Miami-Dade County – in West Kendall and Hialeah – participate in the program. For a complete list of all stores in Florida and across the country participating, click on this link.
