I know I'm not the only who isn't to good at planning a date night. My typical date night is dinner and movie, dinner and Netflix and then dinner and a movie again. See, I told you I wasn't that good at planning date night.

Coming up with something fun to do outside of the norm can be a bit challenging, especially when you feel like you've done everything there is to do. I know Killeen isn't the mecca of romantic spots but Killeen does have some pretty cool spots that can have anyone enjoying themselves. Below I've created a list of places that'll have you stepping it up a notch and breaking out of the normal date night routine.

Check out the list of great date ideas in Killeen below:

1) Great Escape of Central Texas

Great Escape is the perfect low-key but fun place to take a date.

Book a themed room, show up, and play. You have 60 minutes to attempt to complete a themed escape room. You can get out using the puzzles and clues that're provided in the room, but it'll take some wit and team work to make it happen.

If your BAE enjoys interactive games and is competitive, this is the perfect place to enjoy each other's company. It's simple and fun.

The Great Escape is located at 4400 East Central Texas Expressway Building 1, Suite C in Killeen.

2) Project Scuba

I bet you never knew you could go scuba diving in Killeen! Well, Project Scuba provides scuba diving lessons from trained professionals.


Talk about dating outside of the norm. This is taking dating to another level with oxygen tanks, scuba gear, and more. The cool thing is you don't have to know how to swim to enjoy yourself.

Project Scuba is located at 3310 Tallwood Drive in Killeen.

For more info, call (254) 458-3368.

3) Axed Out Texas

Oh, this is something different when it comes too dating. Typically, you would get scared if BAE had a axe in their hand, but at this place it's nothing to worry about.

At Axed Out Texas, you're provided with an axe and a target. The only things you need are closed toe shoes and an arm that's ready to throw. It's the perfect place to test your partners strength and enjoy some laughs.

Axed Out TX is located at 208 W Rancier Ave in Killeen.

4) Stone Tree Golf Club

Golfing can be fun if you're both inexperienced. If your date loves the outdoors, a day or evening of fun putting around the greens is a different way to date.

You can rent clubs and balls when arriving, and spend some time getting to know each other. If you really want to turn it up a notch, get competitive and place a wager that could work out in your favor.

Stone Tree Golf Club is located at 1600 Stonetree Drive in Killeen.

5) Boulders Sport Climbing Center

Are you afraid of heights? I hope not, because at Boulders this is an experience that can take date night to the extreme.

Boulders Sport Climbing Center features 40 foot textured walls with top rope stations, 8-10 auto-belays, a huge lead wall, a free-standing boulder, a bouldering area, and a fitness deck. You could be a pro or beginner, but either way you will have a good time.


A day pass is pretty inexpensive, and you have the option to rent the equipment that's needed to make the date enjoyable. Every new climber receives orientation and the rundown on safety.
