If you’re looking for a Valentine’s Day date night idea that’s not the usual mushy-gushy dinner date, consider shaking it up and getting scared silly instead.

Two El Paso paranormal groups have just the kind of hold-your-honey-tight fright-night that's anything but cliché.

Lost El Paso Paranormal and the Paso de Norte Paranormal Society will be hosting special ghostly Valentine's Day adventures that range from an actual ghost hunt where you are the investigator to a lantern-lit ghost walk filled with true tales of El Paso's dark romantic past. These are the kind of dates you won't mind being ghosted on.

What could be more romantic than a Valentine's Day night of love, death, and dark romance? Okay, I can think of a lot of other things, but if paranormal fright is more your thing than romantic delight then see below for the details.
