Is there a haunted house, or a museum that does haunted tours in the area after dark? These tours can help you learn some history about the area where you live, or about that specific landmark, and it's thrilling. Some of these houses require you to trust the group or person you're with, and it will be more than just a normal night out.
Escape Room Event
Escape room events don't just allow you to do something out of the ordinary. You also get to see how your date thinks, how they solve problems, how they act under pressure, and what they are like in rushed situations. There are many different escape room events that force you to complete tasks, puzzles, and games within a specific amount of time, to see if you can get out of the room or place.

This way you don't get to the event and see their disappointment or uncomfortable demeanor. You want your first date to be something that is fun and that they will remember, not something that they were afraid of or had no interest in. Search around your area to line up these different activities, and to plan the night from start to finish.
