10th birthday gift idea for boy

So my son will be 10 next month and want to give him something special and big since it's a big one.
We do a lot already so an experience is a maybe, but he's already doing a lot.
We already have Playstation.
He's into sports.
He's already been to Jets games, basketball games, etc.
We have a lot of sports stuff in the basement like basketball game, foosball and a football throw.
I just can't think of anything special and different. We are taking him and a bunch of his closest friends to Rainforest Café.
It's the first time I can't figure something out or even get him a bunch of things.

Maybe a personalized Jersey?
He has so many of his fav players Jerseys too. Ugh!

Oh, and he is NOT getting a phone yet. LOL

I think you're in NJ so not sure if they have these places there.

The Adventure Park (Ropes/zip lining course)
RPM Raceway (go kart racing)

Thanks! Around his bday we usually take him to Great Adventure for the day or IPlay America. Maybe bring his friends. Trying to think of a gift to unwrap, but will definitely look into go-carts around here. Don't think he's ever done that

Cash? My 10 year old thinks he’s some kind of high roller come Christmas, birthday and he even cashed in on the Easter bunny. He loves saving it in his wallet and when he wants something will come ask me with his wallet in hand.

ETA: I’ve also taped singles together, and rolled them up in a box so when he opened it, it was a long line of money. Something to unwrap as you said.

My 10 year old is the same as yours. And he already has a phone Chat Icon so there was REALLY nothing to get him.

I ended up getting him a really nice pair of "gaming" headphones like the you tubers wear, gift cards for iTunes and PlayStation and some equipment to record his games (stand, video editing software).

I feel like boys this age are so hard compared with girls. Is there any cool clothes that he’s into? Any new sports equipment needed?

Head phones is a good idea. Maybe more PlayStation games.
Was thinking a personalized Jets Jersey and tickets to opening game, but we'll see.

Friends just went to iFly in Yonkers and had a blast...they highly recommend.
Other ideas-hover board, drone, VR headset for PlayStation, Apple Watch
If you get Jets tickets, you can add a stadium tour.

We surprised my older DS with a broadway show for his 10th birthday. He absolutely loved it.
