If you’ve ever been to a Chuck E. Cheese or other gaming center, chances are you’ve tried your hand at their classic Alley Roller game (sometimes known as Skee-Ball). The game is simple — just roll balls down an alley to get them into holes and earn points — but still manages to entertain kids and adults alike.
The do-it-yourself Alley Roller box comes with any medium or large pizza delivery order and includes three Chuck E. Cheese-themed game balls. It is available from more than 500 Chuck E. Cheese locations through online ordering sites like Grubhub, DoorDash and UberEats.
“Chuck E. Cheese is synonymous with fun and games – two things we know our guests love but don’t get with a typical pizza delivery,” Ashley Zickefoose, chief marketing and concept officer, CEC Entertainment, Inc. said in a press release. “Now, by delivering Alley Roller, one of our most popular and iconic games, along with our freshly made pizza, we’re making it easy to bring home the fun on family pizza night.”
The new pizza box isn’t the only cool update at Chuck E. Cheese. The brand recently added “unicorn churros” to their menu in May. The churros are colorful (just like a unicorn, of course!) and are just $1 with any large pizza purchase from Oct.15 through Oct. 31 if you order through DoorDash or GrubHub.
You can even make your game night healthier by ordering Chuck E. Cheese’s new cauliflower crust pizza, which is naturally gluten-free. The 10-inch Super Cauli Crust pizza starts at $8.99 and toppings cost an additional $1.49 each. (Be sure to check that this pizza is still at your local Chuck E. Cheese, as it is available for a limited time only.)
Now, what if you don’t have a Chuck E. Cheese near you? Don’t worry: Target and Walmart both sell different mini alley roller games so you can still play arcarde games at home. Target’s version is electronic and costs $19.99. Walmart’s is a bit cheaper at $15.71, but is even smaller as it is a handheld/desktop version. Both are a fun way to keep kids — and grownups! — entertained.
