MEMPHIS, Tenn — This year season, Chuck E. Cheese is bringing holiday magic to families nationwide with Winter Winner-land, a new month-long celebration filled with prizes, treats, and its brand-new "Giving Tree" program.
This season through the month of December, those visiting their local Memphis Chuck E. Cheese locations will be encouraged to donate some of their e-Tickets for Le Bonheur Children's Hospital. All tickets collected will be used to purchase toys from Chuck E.’s gift shop for children at the hospital.
And, for every donation, the donor will be given an ornament they can proudly add to a Christmas tree at their Chuck E. Cheese location, a visual representation of the total number of donations.
Below is a news release that Chuck E. Cheese headquarters announced this past Monday:
"Chuck E. Cheese, the number one family entertainment venue, is decking the halls to spread holiday cheer to families nationwide with Winter Winner-Land, a new event filled with instant prizes, delicious treats and merry moments available in store, at home and online.
“The holidays might look and feel a bit different this year, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be filled with fun times and jolly memories,” said CEO of CEC Entertainment, David McKillips. “Winter Winner-Land is a new and immersive experience offering families a safe and exciting way to celebrate the Holidays, either in store or from the comfort of their own home. Guests will enjoy festive new treats and have the opportunity to win over 2 million prizes that would easily top any wish list, including a full-size arcade game! To help every child feel the magic of the season, we’ll be working with local charities and donating presents using e-Ticket donations so kids in need can receive a present from Chuck E.’s gift shop.”
A Winter Winner-Land for All
Chuck E. Cheese venues across the country have been reimagined into snow globe-inspired wonderlands that will surround guests with holiday magic. Festive décor like twinkling lights, snow, snowflakes, ornaments and cast members dressed in holiday hats and reindeer headbands are just a few of the surprises that await families when they step inside their favorite Chuck E. Cheese. Even the dance floor, at select locations, will reflect the wonder of the holidays with an all-new holiday show, featuring the Winner Wonderdance!
Every kid is a winner at Chuck E. Cheese’s Winter Winner-Land, with instant-win opportunities in store and at home. Each child will be able to choose a free game piece that holds an exclusive prize, after completing Kid Check during an in-store visit. For takeout and delivery orders, one game piece will be automatically included so families can score these terrific prizes at home, too!
- This year, the brand is giving away over 2 million prizes valued at $5 million dollars, such as free play bands, play points and e-Tickets, collectible cups and fun treats like cotton candy and ice cream.
- Two (2) Grand Prize Winners will win the chance to select a brand-new, full-size arcade game for their own home!
- When guests bring in their completed Afternoon Fun Break snowflake activity sheet, they’ll receive a free bag of Chuck E.’s fluffy cotton candy that looks like a bag full of snow.
Seasonal Treats to Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth

- Churro Frost Bites – fresh, warm churro bites dusted with blue raspberry sugar, layered with icing and topped with glittering sprinkles. These crystal blue treats are sure to catch your attention.
