Zip Up Your Stag Do

If you're looking for some incredible and adventurous activities for your stag do, North Wales is the destination of choice. This fantastic adventure land has some of the best activities in the world let a lone the UK.

North Wales has some pretty impressive accolades when it comes to the Zip Wire activity, well it is hilly which is fairly handy - Holland doesn't stand a chance!

First of all it has the fastest zip-line in the world and the longest in Europe (see velocity below).

Then there's the Titan which is the longest zip-zone in Europe.

Not forgetting the Caverns, which is zip lining in underground Caverns, how cool this that!

All of these activities can be booked on our website, go and take a look.

Velocity




The longest zip wire in Europe and the FASTEST in the world - how cool is that! You'll be lying down for this one and as you'll reach speeds of over 100mph, there's only one thing you'll be shouting - SUPERMAN!!!

Facts
  • 2 People go down at one
  • You can reach speeds of over 100mph
  • Incredible Views

Titan
























Then there's the Titan Zip Wire which is the longest zip-line in Europe. This time you're in the seating position which I must say is very comfortable before the inevitable countdown - 3-2-1 and then you shoot down at speeds of over 60mph.

Facts
  • 4 People go down at once
  • Longest zip line in Europe
  • Total length of Alpha, Bravo and Charlie; 8km
  • Zip Wire Caverns + Bounce Below on the same site

Caverns
























This is the wackiest and the most unique out of all the above Zip Wire activities and is great for the stag do wanting adventure as well as thrills.

There's everything involved including rope bridges, tunnels, stepping stones for climbing, via ferratta and monkey bars.

 Facts
  • In an underground slate mine
  • 12 Zip Lines in total
  • Has the steepest zip wire in the UK

Tree Safari
























Zip from tree platform to tree platform which are a mere 60 feet up. The best part about Go Ape is surely the zip wires, am I right? Well, this is mostly zip wires. Who needs bread when you've got the jam!

Facts
  • 23 Zip lines in total!
  • 60 Feet up
  • A great price

For more details and prices head over to the DesignaVenture website.

What To Do On A Stag Do



Before you trundle off to the stag do section of the DesignaVenture website where you will find bucket loads of activity ideas and packages I have put together a little list together below on What To Do On A Stag Do.

Just bear in mind that the last thing you want on the stag weekend are the guys bored out of their tiny minds.

You also don't need 15 drunken men by 4pm wandering the streets and making a menace of themselves, no establishment in their right minds will not let you in, so it's early to bed then!

Organise something for the day which will keep the boys happy, contented and create a memory of the stag do the groom will cherish.

Activities don't have to be adventurous, you can go; Horse Racing, Cider Tasting around Herefordshire, Whisky Tasting in Edinburgh, Casino, watch a premiership football match, Beer Bike Tours the list is endless.

However if it's adventurous stag activities you're after then Rage Buggy Racing, Quad Biking, Canyoning, Paintball, Bubble Football, Stock Car Racing, Zombie Shooting to name but a few, will make a weekend of it.

There are also some brilliant and unique stag activities in Europe such as AK47 shooting, proper Bobsleigh on ice, Snowmobiles, Mud Jelly Wrestling, Driving Trabants, so don't just think booking a stag do to Europe on a city break is enough, you'll need something for the day to stop the boys from peaking too soon.

The moral of the daytime is to make sure the guys are busy and having fun - of course the activity must suit the group and no one knows your group better than the Best Man and Stag.

How do these activity days pan out?

OK, if you haven't been on one of these activity days there are certain elements that you need to remember to bring along; the right clothing, make sure you have enough supplies such as food, drink, sun cream etc. and most importantly waterproof cameras / Go Pros.

On arrival and after kit allocation* you usually have a briefing with an instructor whether it's to show you how a Rage Buggy works or what to do in an emergency.

*Some activities will need specialised equipment which will be supplied such as helmets, buoyancy aids, wet suits etc. If you're racing motor vehicles some sites include overalls and some don't so check before you go - if you book your stag do thought DesignaVenture all this information will be in your Essential Travel Pack.

If your budget is a little tight and you only have enough dosh for the night out and hotel, consider organising an activity where you don't need money such as; football on the beach, an incredible walk up Snowdonia or along a coastal path in Cornwall, bike from Bath to Bristol (taking in a few pubs), hide and seek!!! The world is your Oyster my friends.

Details for the Bath to Bristol or Bristol to Bath bike ride

Alternatively, Walk Snowdonia

When walking Snowdonia make sure you wear the correct clothing and read up on what you should take with you - don't be a plonker like this man who walked to the top of Snowdonia in his underpants and got hyperthermia.

Night time needs to be well organised, there's no point turning up at a city for a full on stag night with no plans, especially when you are a big group of men - you're likely to be turned away from busy venues and these are the best places!

To start with, everyone likes a curry or Chinese so book a restaurant / all you can eat buffet, early doors, this will not only soak up the alcohol but it's also a great place for banter before hitting the bars.

After your meal, book an unescorted bar tour, you'll need your name down on as many venues as you can, giving you the luxury of choice.

Then it's the finale, the last night of being a free man - do you visit a nightclub and party in a private booth with Redbull and Vodka or is it straight to the lap dancing club for a night of eye watering madness.

Well it's your stag do - you decide!

Good luck
