Black Friday doesn’t have to be about standing in a long queue or spending hours looking at a computer screen shopping away. The biggest day in shopping can also be the best day to spend some coins on leisure activities like getting a manicure, going on a getaway and even eating and drinking to your heart’s content without breaking your bank account.

For those who’d like to splurge without setting foot in a packed store or spending hours hitting the refresh button, we’ve rounded up some great Black Friday deals for you.

Gold Reef City Theme Park

If you fancy yourself on a rollercoaster ride while spending more than half of what you would, this one is for you. Gold Reef City is calling all thrill-seekers and daredevils for a one-day-only special of R110 per person for access to all its thrill rides. This rate is available online for one day only, Friday the 29th so you better head on to their site now.

If you like the bioscope but haven’t set foot there since the advent of streaming services like Showmax and Netflix, you should consider going this Friday. Ster-Kinekor is offering film enthusiasts a once-off special on Black Friday where you can watch a movie of your choice for R45 with a small popcorn and soda combo for R25. In total, that’s R70 to kick back with popcorn and a drink and watch exciting releases like 21 Bridges, Charlie’s Angels and local box office hit Losing Lerato.
