Six Flags Magic Mountain is having their 25th Annual Toy Drive, where they are giving away FREE 1-day admission for same day use in exchange for a new unwrapped $15 toy. Also bring the receipt and leave the price tag on when you show up at the ticket counter. That's not bad at all since the 1-Day General Admission is regularly $55 per person.
Why don't you double the fun and make it a surprise? Go to the toy store, pick up 2 toys, hide them in your trunk, and then drag your date to the amusement park without telling him/her. Of course, make sure that he/she does enjoy thrill rides first of all. Magic Mountain makes for a good "day date" since the park is open 10:30 AM - 6:00 PM, especially with the current cool weather (too hot in that area during summertime, in my opinion). This is not quite the cheapest date idea yet, but...
you save a whopping $80 and what a fantastic opportunity to show your good heart and spontaneity!
Hurry up, because this special deal is only good for the next two weekends, December 5th, 6th, 12th, and 13th. If you can't make it these dates, then you can buy special tickets online this month for a mere $30 pp (not as great of a deal as the $15 toy though), which will be good through May 2010. Make sure to buy the 1-day parking pass in advance for a discount online.
Approximate cost of creative date idea = $30 Toys + $15 Parking.
Actual value of the cheap date idea = $125 Total + Good Karma.
