Wow....just wow. If anyone knows who the perps are, turn them in. This is just embarrassing. If the photo booth is down, **** and wait until it's working.

Recording of the 911 call.

Parma police release 911 calls from Chuck E. Cheese's attack (audio) | cleveland.com

This wasn't a fight, it was an attack. I hope they catch the sick people that did this and have child services look into these unstable parents.

I took my kids to C.E.C. once and never again. Something about the place brings out the worst in people.

I went to the one in Mentor OH when I was a kid and it was completely different. Never a fight of any kind. Back then, establishments such as these used sound reasoning and didn't serve alcohol like they do today.

IIRC, beer and wine has been served at most of the chain's locations for their entire existence (35+ years). As a kid, you probably didn't notice it or you happened to go to one of the locations that didn't serve beer (70% of the locations serve alcohol). Also, you probably had responsible parents who didn't use a trip to Chuck E Cheese as an opportunity to get ****faced, but instead watched over their kids who were taken there as a special treat. As noted in the the below link, some parents are also wired differently these days, with impulsive behavior much more prevalent. Any perceived disrespect is an immediate trigger for some to start swinging and alcohol magnifies this mindset.

Here's an article from a couple years ago on the nationwide issue of fights at Chuck 'E Cheese.

I haven't taken my kid there in years. Always too crowded. Too many parents not paying attention to their kids...ect... At any rate, I hope they find the trash that caused this, and throw the book at them! Bunch of morons starting a fight over a photo booth not working! Really?

I TRULY have no idea why they continue to serve alcohol. And they justify it by saying most of their patrons are well-behaved.
You put a bunch of extended family, especially including divorced parents and their new spouses/significant others, many of whom really don't want to be there but put a brave face on for the kid, in a high-stress situation and supply beer and wine.
Brilliant. And the top blows off and someone says something and there you have it.
What a terrible business model (or a brilliant one if you think about it).
I had ex's over for a high school graduation party. Served no booze but they obviously had some before they showed up. It ALMOST got way out of hand when I told "grandma" to please stop throwing f-bombs around in the middle of families. Then it immediately de-evolved into a personal attack on me and the way I was raising her grandkid. And then the ex, who was buzzed and half in the bag, tried to look like a badass and defend his mother. Thank god for Grandpa calming their egos, and thank god the guest of honor was not right there to see it.
THIS is often what happens to often when broken, re-established and/or extended families are put into these situations. They want to "be there," but any sense of decorum or ettiquette goes out the window when booze is involved in a stressful situation.
Hasn't a decade of bad press shown those folks that alcohol does this, and a kids party is not the place for it? It is NOT, say, Dave and Busters. It's for little kids, and any grownup that want to "tag along or supervise."

You can't always blame booze for people acting like morons. As someone said, they have always served beer. And it's not cheap, so only a nimrod is going to drop $50 in beer at CEC.

Maybe not so much wired differently but more generally immature. Impulsive, impatient and the ''disrespect'' line is so cliche.
