Changes are coming to Chuck E. Cheese. The iconic kid–friendly fun-factory/pizza joint is getting an update—and it won’t look like what you remember from your own childhood.

After an initial announcement in 2017, it looks like Chuck E. Cheese is making good on its promise to ditch its decades-old design and the ever-epic animatronic band in more than 600 locations. While some changes have already happened in select locations, the company now plans to roll out the redo across the nation.

So what can you expect from the newly revamped Chuck E. Cheese? Reportedly, the redesign will include a modern look with sleek furniture, brighter lighting and scripted red font signs. The game play/pizza eatery’s menu will also undergo a facelift, including an expanded salad bar and options such as cauliflower crust pizza.

Along with the new look and menu, the game-time tokens you’re used to are waving buh-bye. Instead of tokens, your kiddos will now use pre-loaded play passes. If you’re wondering how this will work, a Chuck E. Cheese representative told Today, “Next time you visit your local store, you simply choose the time you want to play, starting at just $9 for 30 minutes of play.”
