How Far $5,000 Cash Will Go At Some Of Amarillo Landmarks
We're giving you three chances every workday to win cash, up to $5,000. Here's a quick look at how much bang-for-your-buck you could get at some of Amarillo's landmarks.
Be sure to download the Thunder 98.7 app and be tuned in at 7:30am, 11:30am, and 4:30pm. We'll give you a code word. All you have to do is enter that code word in the app for your chance to win up to $5,000 cash in John Boy and Billy's Workforce Payday.
I did some digging, and the average cost of a can of spray paint is around $5. That means you could take 1,000 cans out to Cadillac Ranch and paint 'til the cows come home.
You could just hand out free cans of paint to everyone who shows up and make new friends, or just leave them all in a pile for whoever wants to use them.
I did the math, and $5,000 would let you take the 72oz. steak challenge roughly 69 times. That's over 300lbs of steak.
If you fail the challenge, you have to cough up $72...and hopefully that's all that comes up, if you know what I mean.
$5,000 would mean you would no longer have to be afraid of failure. Just "make room" and try again.
If you are lucky enough to get season tickets (starting as low as $308 for full season according to their website), you could make that purchase for you and 15 of your friends.
Either that, or I'm sure you'd have enough to bribe someone into giving up their season tickets.
After looking at the most recent ticket prices and doing some math, you could go to Wonderland Park on a Saturday and get the Ultimate WOW Pass 115 times.
That's a lot of mini golf and rides on the Texas Tornado.
