Chuck E. Cheese Apparently Still Uses Floppy Disks To Update Its Shows

There's nothing more ICONIC to our childhoods than going to Chuck E. Cheese for a birthday party to eat pizza, play arcade games, and watch the animatronics perform for us, but apparently the pizza arcade chain is still living in the 90s because they still use FLOPPY DISKS to update their animatronic shows!

Earlier this week, TikTok user showbizpizzaman shared how his Chuck E. Cheese uses a floppy disk to load the character shows so that the animatronics are either updated or given new data to perform a new show.

According to Wired, most companies that still use floppy disks are either small businesses or companies that haven’t updated their equipment due to it simply being too expensive, but for some reason Chuck E. Cheese is still rocking with the OG portable data storage device.

You can see the video below, but if anything this could be a great explanation to tell your kids or younger friends how technology used to work back in the day!
