San Antonio, TX (6874 Ingram Rd)

From Cheese-E-Pedia

6874 Ingram Rd, Store #98 is a Showbiz Pizza/Chuck E. Cheese that opened on June 10, 1981 as a corporate Showbiz Pizza Place with a Rock-Afire Explosion.


San Antonio (Ingram) opened its doors in June 10th, 1981 with a Rock-afire Explosion show. It was originally and currently a corporate-owned store. It was also the first ever Showbiz Pizza to open in the state of Texas, and like many other Showbiz Pizza locations, it had a typical SPP layout seen in many other stores across the United States and would eventually receive the 1988 remodel years after it would open. Although some little documentation exists back in the Showbiz days, it's possible that San Antonio (Ingram) was one of several locations to receive an Uncle Klunk show package (and a Santa Claus retrofit package as well) sometime after opening. Like many Showbiz Pizza locations in the late 1980's, San Antonio (Ingram) received the Showbiz Pizza Campground upgrade.

In around 1991/1992, San Antonio (Ingram) received Concept Unification which converted the show to Munch's Make Believe Band. In around the Mid-Late 1990's, San Antonio (Ingram) received the Phase 1 remodel which removed some early 90's decor, added new decor, SkyTubes, & received a new exterior. San Antonio (Ingram) remained this way until sometime in 2006-2007 when they received the 2005 Update to the 2003 "Cool Chuck" Reconfiguration / Major Remodel Initiative which involved removing the Showroom Walls, Balcony Seating, an exterior repaint. They also received a minor expansion around 2012. They then received the Circles of Light stage in 2014 removing the 3-Stage bots and the stage was now behind it. They then received the 2.0 Remodel in July 2017 as one of the first of 7 2.0's removing the Circles of Light stage for a 2017 model Dance Floor (This also involved relocating the showroom to the right side wall as well). Currently, as of June 2023, San Antonio (Ingram) still has the 2.0 and 2017 Model Dance Floor


San Antonio opened with the Rock afire Explosion in 1981. Unfortunately, there are some photos but no videos to exist of San Antonio with the Rock afire, or as a Showbiz Pizza in general.

In 1991-1992, San Antonio received Concept Unification, converting the Rock afire into Munch’s Make Believe Band.

In 2014, San Antonio removed the 3-Stage for the Circles of Light stage.

In July 2017, San Antonio started the 2.0 Remodel, removing the Circles of Light and adding a Dance Floor.
