Finding new date ideas are tough, and the fun, cool activities are usually pretty expensive. Scrap your upcoming date at the bowling alley, and opt for a helium balloon ride at Great Park. During the day, you will get an incredible 360-degree view of Orange County from 400 feet in the air, and at night, the balloon lights up for a romantic setting (maybe you can slip the balloon operator a little extra to ensure that you two get a private trip). Just make sure that your date isn't afraid of heights.
