According to WIVB, the Chuck E. Cheese on Harlem Road in Amherst is permanently closed after the entertainment center's voicemail confirms the closure.

The chain filed for chapter 11 bankrupcy last month in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Chuck E. Cheese is one of those places that kids adore and parents, well, not so much. I'll tell you though, as a kid, there really weren't any better places to have fun than a day at Chuck E. Cheese. The countless games, the prizes, the tubes -- it had everything.

RIP to the Amherst location. The pizza was alright, too...
