amusement Parks, the perfect place for a date?

Monday, October 15, 2001 5:33 PM
I always thought amusement parks are a great alternative to the usually sort of boring date things, even if your date doesn't really enjoy coasters. The thing is I don't know if amusement parks are good for a first date since they are pretty expensive and can occupy a whole day, which sometimes can be awful if you do not hit it off with your date. What's peoples opinions on this?

I think that amusement parks would be great for a date, but Elitch Gardens wouldn't compare to Great America (SF) on a date. There are bigger rides there at Great America, and I would have a funnier time there, and hopefully my date would, too :)

Well they would only be a good place for a date if
#1-The park was close
#2-You or Her is rich
#3-You can drive
Of course some benefits are rifing in the log flume...Guys sit in the back;)

The best time to take a date is during FrightFest/Halloween events! Be sure to go in the haunted houses :)... now is your chance! Though, I am sure you and your date would have fun regardless if the relationship "ticks" or not... you can always have fun in an amusement park!

If that was the case there wouldn't be a date at all. I am not interested in a woman who dosn't really enjoy coasters.

It would be better for him/her to go to an amusement park.  Heck, it might be better than a bar?  Who knows?

A few guys have taken me to MA(...or I took them, considering it's my second home during the summer :)). Each time was a blast, and it didn't even matter to me if they rode Timbers all day. It was fun just to float along the lazy river all afternoon, or hit all the flat rides. Few things are more romantic than eating ice cream in front of the best wooden coaster during the evening and just taking it all in...at least from this coaster chick's point of view;).

I took my girlfriend to Fright Fest and  we had a fantastic time! It was so cool how she held onto my arm on the coasters at SFGRAM and  I loved every minute of it! it was her first time on any of those kinds of coasters!!! She even rode Deja Vuedoo with me!

Actually Indiana Beach would probably be a great date. General admission is $3.00. Inside, along with the rides, you'll find many places to eat of course, a teen dance club, a lounge with live music and dancing, a bar by the beach, the beach of course, arcades, midway games, walks along the boardwalk and if you wanted to ride a couple rides, you could purchase a ticket. It sounds like a perfect date to me, except I of course would go ahead and buy the POP wrist bands, in May preferably when they were buy one get one free at $15.00.

No, but I think the ferris Wheel is Sufficient enough.  And thats from personal experience.  ;-)

Working at an amusement park is a great way to hook up.  I have been married to my park gal for 5 years now!

In high school I took my girl friend to Pontchartrain Beach in New Orleans.  In college my folks live in Houston where I found that Astroworld was a great place to meet girls as well as going on dates.  I always liked the rides where you sit one behind the other such as log flumes.

If you went to a park with a date, I suggest you do more than rides and not spend so much time on them either.

...now that I think about it, I almost wish they didn't get rid of Nightmare at Phantom Cave @ SFDL :-P

It certainly seemed that way on Columbus Day at SFGAm. The place was swarming with preteen kids holding hands and such. Parks are a cool place to go on dates, but as mentioned before, it would be conveniant if they where close.
