The fourteenth of February needn’t just be for lovers. Whether you’re preparing to commiserate or celebrate your singledom, we’ve got plenty of fun and fancy-free experiences on GrabOne to keep yourself busy for this year’s Single Awareness Day.
Get your heart racing
Dateless doesn’t have to mean depressed – treat your very deserving self with a day at Rainbow’s End, packed with thrills, spills and – most importantly – plenty of candy floss. Check out the new additions to the park: upgraded dodgems and family karts, and brand spanking rides like the Stratosfear.
Throw yourself down a hill
You could chuck in the towel and stay stuck at home bouncing off the walls, or you could bounce down a hill in a giant inflatable bubble instead. Distract yourself from the sickly proclamations of love and have a ball enjoying the crazy, inflatable fun that you’ll find at ZORB Rotorua.
Give yourself a paddling
Instead of eating your feelings on the couch, why not get out and active? Grab some friends and head out to Lake Karapiro to experience the fun of paddleboarding. Not only are you sure to have a blast, you’ll also get a great workout – perfect for burning off some frustrated energy.
Get by with a little help from your friends
Catch up with friends over a meal at Winnie Bagoes. Sure, it’s not quite the same as an intimate date with your latest Tinder match, but let’s be honest, it’s probably much better company.
Treat yourself to a little indulgence
If you are feeling a little down in the dumps, check out some of the incredible pampering deals that we have on site. There are great options from top to toe – whether you’re looking to spruce up your skin with a facial, or add a little sparkle to your nails with a manicure, there’s a huge range of offers for you to choose from.
Take a pizza my heart
If all else fails, you can always retreat to your sanctuary to fend off the bombardment of roses, chocolates and heart shaped clutter. Settle in for a date with yours truly and grab a gourmet pizza to takeaway from Olive’s East Tamaki.
