Son's 10th birthday in Oahu

We will be in Hawaii in August and will be there on our son's 10th birthday. Is there any fun, special place to go or a good place to eat for this celebration? We have never been to hawaii before.

SO, how long are you going to be on Oahu? Where are you staying? Any activities already planned? Any other kids in the group - ages?? What does your son like to do? There are so many things you can do . . . but a bit more info from you would help - thanks! :)

Sorry, Here is some more info: We will be there one week and staying at the Embassy Suites at Waikiki. We have lots of things planned (Diamond Head, Pearl Harbor, Polynesion Cultural Center). We were thinking about doing the atlantis submarine or some other boat ride. I was really just wanting input about where we can eat, because I don't know much about dining there. Or maybe also a show. We also have a 12 yr old son. Thank you so much for any input!

Wow! That's perfect! He actually LOVES magic, but he's never been to a live magic show. It looks really cool. Thanks!
