Best kids club for older kids?

My kids are going to be spending an evening in a kids club one night and while the oldest has always wanted to visit the Neverland Club, she's a bit older now and I want to make sure she enjoys herself as well as my younger pair. Are there enough things for pre-teens to do and have fun with for a whole evening?

Would she be allowed to take in her kindle and cell phone?

She insists that we should chose the kids club that is most convenient to where we choose to dine, which we will, but I'd like to know a bit more about the clubs for older kids.

Thanks!

VP

Well, our DDs were 11 and 7 the last time they went to the Sandcastle Club at the BC. They loved it! Our oldest asked if she could bring her iPod Touch in with her and we discussed it upon arrival and asked if it was allowed. The CM tried to dissuade her from bringing it in -- was nice about it -- saying they always worry about a child losing it or forgetting it. But, they said if she really wanted to do so it would be ok. In the end, our DD did use it to play with the distorted face app with a CM and other kids in the club --- the CM told us about it when we picked them up and said it was a lot of fun for all of them. That was a couple years ago so I am not sure if they now have a formal electronics policy or not.

Our girls had a lot of fun there. The following night we wanted to go see Illuminations and they asked if they could go to the club again instead of going with DH and I! Of course we said yes and were blessed with two date nights in a row! Our girls really enjoyed the Club.

Our kids ages 9 and 8 just spent an evening at the Neverland Club. My son brought his Kindle but did not have to use it as they had enough "other" offerings in terms of video games, movies, crafts, entertainment, etc. The CM did not try to talk him out of bringing it but did tell us that they would not be responsible if it gotten broken, etc. I imagine a cell phone would be allowed as well.
