History

Chino opened on December 30, 1988, under the name Showbiz Pizza, the 1988 remodel, and Chuck E.'s House. Around 1994, they received Phase 1, which involved removing all 1988 remodel elements, removing neon signage, changing the exterior to Chuck E. Cheese's, and replaced Chuck E.'s House with a 2-Stage. They later received Phase 2 and Phase 3 in their respective years. Around the early 2000’s they replaced Chuck, Helen, Jasper, and Pasqually’s masks from the 90’s. In 2006/2007, they received the 2005 update to the 2003 "Cool Chuck" Reconfiguration / Major Remodel Initiative, removing all 90s decor for new decor, removing the showroom walls and balcony seating, added purple walls, downsized the Skytubes and changed the exterior again. The Skytubes were removed around 2017-2020. Chino remained like this until November 2022, when they would begin the 2.0 remodel, removing the 2-Stage for a 2021 Model Dance Floor and Video Wall. As of July 2023, Chino remains like this.
