2030 South Hurstbourne Parkway, Store #111 is a Chuck E. Cheese's that opened on January 2, 2000, with a Studio C (1997), which is still open to this day.

They are the 3rd location in Louisville, after the Preston Highway and Shelbyville Road locations which closed in November 1997 & December 1991 respectively. Louisville is the last animatronic stage in Kentucky, after Bowling Green removed their Studio C Cappa because of their 2.0 remodel in July 2022.

History

2 years after the last Louisville store closed, a new Chuck E. Cheese's opened on 2030 South Hurstbourne Parkway, with a Studio C Alpha stage, being the first Studio C stage in Kentucky, and the only Alpha in the State. Louisville was formerly a Discovery Zone restaurant, and when the company closed every remaining store, Chuck E. Cheese's would take the space over. This would also be done to several other locations. After Chuck E. Cheese's took over, the business reopened with the first Studio C Alpha in the state of Kentucky, with the other being Bowling Green, KY (2625 Scottsville Road, which was installed in 2004. This store opened with the Phase 2 game package and the 1993 remodel, featuring a unique awning, which all other stores in the plaza also had.

In the late 2000s, this store would remodel to the 2003 Remodel and replace the old artwork and games, adding new fixtures. During this time, the plaza would also remodel, giving the outlets new awnings, which the store would use. As of May 2023, this is the only Studio C left in Kentucky, and the final stage in the state overall, with every other store having 2.0.
