1) Check out the locations of the stores where most incidents happen.
2) Check out the type of person typically involved in these fights.
3) Check out the amount of floor staff in the most troubled places.

A similar rule of thumb was used by us when we used to hit the bars. Nice bar, nice location usually equaled a good time. The name helped, like the Causeway Lounge or the Highlighter. Bars like Joanne's Quarter Bar and Grill, Evil People Lounge and Big Bob's, located back off the road in kind of a crappy location usually meant trouble.

A couple of strip clubs I used to visit ended periodic fights by hiring off duty cops as security. One bar, when it started to get rowdy, hired this smallish, pleasant-looking polite bouncer. He turned out to be a Black Belt Martial Artist. He was always polite and took it outside when some big drunk started causing problems. He was also still polite, unflustered and not a hair out of place when he returned later -- alone.

Fights at that bar dropped sharply in a real short time.

Here's the short answer: they serve beer.

Here's the long answer: they serve beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrr!
 
2012-03-07 10:13:35 PM  
The explanation has been overcomplicated. Here's what it is:

1) Adults are stuck doing shiat they have zero interest in doing
2) They serve beer

Put the two together and people get frustrated, biatchy, and territorial

They're full of noisy kids, bad pizza, awful music, and horrible things. The alcohol doesn't help, but I suspect that things might be worse without it.
 
2012-03-07 10:16:22 PM  
I'll tell ya why, it's because those dads are so tense and stressed out and what they really want to do is get gay with each other in the bathroom but they can't because it's not socially acceptable to get queer on Jimmy's birthday so what they do instead is play leg lock cave man style to prove to each other's nuclear unit who is boss, but secretly this act is what determines who is submissive in the bedroom. Duh. Thought everyone knew that it was secretly a gay bar.

So... Chuck E Cheese needs a bouncer?

I was expecting helicopter parents and tiger moms to be the problem. Looks like the real solution is to raise the prices.

read an article that news shows like Nightline were gearing more towards a "tabloid" story approach with their stories. This article goes towards proving that point.

/but seriously it is Chuck E. Cheese the pizza isn't that good and it is basically a breeding ground for every type of bacteria and virus imaginable. The one I went to never seen any fights break out, but there were some gals in there with the whole "oh no you didn't" bobble headed hand in your face attitude. thank god my youngest is now out of that phase and only wants money for his birthday.

baronbloodbath: Here's the short answer: they serve beer.

And an even more explained and longer answer, they will only serve you one beer every XX amount of time and they log it each time you order one. And if memory serves, the one I went to in the Chicago suburbs only served a mostly yellow water like substance that couldn't even get a gnat buzzed. So unless they're sneaking their own booze in, it ain't Chuck's beer.
 
2012-03-07 10:17:55 PM  
Was there for two back to back birthday parties last weekend. That place is proof that they serve pizza in hell.
 
2012-03-07 10:19:14 PM  
Because every C.E.C. I've ever seen is in a neighborhood so bad it wouldn't attract a truck stop, much less a "family" restaurant?

Seriously, has anyone ever seen a Chuck E. Cheese in a good neighborhood? I'm surprised they're only know for fighting, you'd think there would be a prostitution bust in there somewhere.
 
2012-03-07 10:19:19 PM  
Could it be that Chuck E. Cheese attracts a bottom feeder population?

Not that my shiat doesn't stink, but nobody in my family or any of my friends would be caught dead in a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant.
 
2012-03-07 10:19:55 PM  
If you go to Chuck E. Cheese, you deserve anything that might come your way, including bad food, impetigo, and pink eye.

Nasty.

3) Parents sure as hell aren't going to tell THEIR precious kid to "knock that off," so they try pushing other people around so that their kid can continue doing whatever the hell they want. As usual.

Wait. Nightline is still on?

Newsflash: When you have a large collection of low-class people congregated in a low-class establishment, this is what happens.

My wife is pregnant. I've already decided...my kid will never know what the inside of a Chuck E. Cheese looks like. Not for her birthdays, not for anyone's birthdays.

If she's going to witness an ugly brawl between drunken adults, it'll be at my sister's house during Christmas dinners, as God intended.
 
2012-03-07 10:26:57 PM  
I am getting a kick out this. Not only we have a chuck e. cheese that already went down this road, we also have a generic version called huckleberry junction. the place is a real dump compared to chuck

Why is this shadowy master hiding from us? Will he ever emerge from his gooey castle, deep in the Pennsylvania wilderness? Chuck E. 2012!

The fights are even more awesome at Chuck E. Liddell Pizza.

As someone who worked for Chuck E Cheese as a teen here's some tips:
A) employees make minimum wage, so we don't give a fark about your precious snowflakes, don't like the food you ordered? make it yourself at home
B) Your kids have accidents we get it, if they are just being kids then clean it up yourself, were not paid to baby sit your frosty snowflake when he throws a slice of pizza because he didnt get a teddy bear
C) your kid pukes or poops a diaper, read above ^
D) If your kid acts up, take him home - had one kid beam another in the face with the balls from a pit, told his parents get him outa here - manager agreed. Kid was pissy over fact he didnt get something for his birthday and started pelting people.

E) Helicopter parents - STAY HOME, were not catering to your every moment because timmy finally got his first hit in a little league baseball game.

yeah I didn't last 3 months, nor do I have kids now thank god - don't want your precious daughter pregnant? have her work at chuck E cheese - pretty sure she will go lesbo when you remind her if she gets pregnant any one of the little rug rats will be hers.
