On the heels of the big promotion at Build-A-Bear Thursday, Chuck E. Cheese offered a similar deal Friday. Both promotions include paying the age of your child to get a good deal.

"It sounded like a good deal," said Wes. "We were going to do the Build-A-Bear thing yesterday and found out it was kind of a disaster so we decided not to go."

In a Facebook post on Thursday, the family entertainment franchise wrote "Didn’t get to Build A Bear? Come in on 7/13, pay your child’s age, and they will get 30 minutes of All You Can Play. Offer available Friday, 7/13 only in participating U.S. locations where Chuck E.’s Play Pass is available. (Maximum $9 for 30 minutes)"

There was some backlash because people thought the 30 minutes was a waste of time.

On Facebook, 13 Action News viewer said, "30 minutes? LOL not worth the gas."
