Default I've got a kid...

... To sort of entertain.

Long story short, but there will be a 13 (I think) year old lad coming tonight with the mrs Dad (her half brother). We are trying to think of things to keep him busy for 6 days. So far;

Waterpark
Go karting
Desert
Abra ride / souks (I know, hot)
Mall - aquarium, sega republic, ski slope etc
Wibit - JBR
Beach maybe

What I'm struggling with is suggestions for things to do in evening.

TGI's?
Hard Rock Cafe - is it any good?
Some places will let him in (Nezzas will, which is good)

Any other glaring omissions from day time stuff?
Any suggestions for cool places to take him in evening / for dinner?

Note: if he touches my brand new PS4 I'm killing him.

Bowling. Forgot to mention, apparently there's a place up near the creek that serves cheap beer too. Definitely doing that

Thanks folks.

They might do, will check. Just not sure what 13 yr old lads are interested in apart from wanking. Plus, not sure if he's a decent lad or a geek or a liability or what. Oh well. Not my issue but suggestions are.

Bahtat - not sure the father in law (well, not that yet) would approve me taking him to the seaview to wear African women like gloves / feedbags

Mirdif also the climbing thing where you go around the whole play centre. I forget what it's called.

Also how about wild waddi at night. 10pm on Fridays now.

Captain jack at the marina. Get a voucher in the entertainer book.

And yes, hard rock is ok. The singer does a better job during the night than during the day. They are dreadful but good at the same time.
