Top 10 Stag Do Activities

When booking a stag do, it's essential these days, to consider how to keep the troops entertained.

Drinking most of the day may not be everyones idea of fun and by 4 - 5 pm it's going to be pretty messy, trust me I have been on these types of stag dos and they are as memorable as a wet weekend with your cousin Wendy, or Windy as she's known as to most of her friends.

So in other words you need to keep the boys out the bars and doing something which will push them to the limit, make them laugh/cry/smile - whatever you or the stag fancy inflicting.

From a straw pole we did with last week's stag bookings, 91% of best-men considered the stag's interests or choices when booking a stag do activity, that's food for thought when considering what to book.

So let's take a look at the top 10 stag activities being booked for 2017 and in no particular order:


Rebel Buggy kicking up dirt
Rage Buggies

By far the most requested stag activity, Rage Buggies are extreme in every way. These machines have been capped at 58mph and are built to stick to your dirt track like spider man sticks to sky scrapers, they also sound amazing. If you don't smile whilst racing these beasts, you are dead inside.

Similar karts to the Rage Buggies are the Rebel Buggies made by Walker Adams, just as fast and have great handling it would be hard to pick between the two.


White Water Raft launching into the sky
White Water Rafting

In my mind the perfect Saturday morning stag do activity, especially after the Friday night, when you weren't suppose to have a heavy night, we've all been there.

Whether you decide to go man-made (Nottingham or Cardiff) or natural; North Wales, Edinburgh, Europe and beyond you have just booked yourself the best hangover cure this side of the Co-Codamol factory, well done you.



Quad bike getting air
Quad Biking
Quad bikes also know as ATV's (all terrain vehicles) can almost take on any terrain, I'm not sure about sheer cliff faces, but all other than that on any other terrain they are pretty handy.

One of our most popular quad biking sites is North Wales / Shropshire borders where you can take on some pretty steep inclines before viewing 7 counties from a flat plateau, the perfect time for some stag do snaps.

Quad biking is a fantastic stag do experience, racing or trekking quads are incredible vehicles to drive / ride and they are so easy to drive, with pretty much all of our sites offer quad bikes with automatic gears.


Bubble Football Stag Group

If the stag eat/sleeps football, then Bubble Football is a must.

Stick on your bubble suit and a learn a different style of football which includes; fouling, umm... fouling and yes fouling. This is great fun and a very memorable couple of hours, also great value for money.






AK 47 Shooting

What's a stag do without doing something completely crazy? So, stick your AK47 into automatic and shoot up a target like a crazy wartime hero, the only difference is you won't be shot at, which is damn lucky!

You'll need to be in popular stag do destinations such as Prague, Riga, Budapest or Bratislava to enjoy this amazing activity.

Canyoning

Sneak behind waterfalls, jump off 60 foot ledges, explore caves and traverse rocks, no this isn't SAS selection, these are the activities you can do whilst Canyoning also known as Gorge Walking.

Canyoning is an exciting activity and buckets of fun with the boys with stories of pure heroism you can take with you to the pub and brag to the stripper about!

Paintball

OK, this is old hat, a cliche, and also an activity the stag can sometimes dread, however, Paintball has had some resurgence this year with lots of parties opting for this incredibly popular activity.

If you feel like letting loose and running around dodging bullets, ambushing your mates with a load of bullets, smoke bombs and paint grenades, Paintball is your stag do activity of choice.

It's also great value for money and only get's expensive if you have a trigger happy finger, you can expect to pay anything from £4 - £8 per 100 rounds. If you want loads of bullets club together with the lads and buy in bulk, as most places will offer you a discount on boxes of 1,000+.




Horse Racing
Horse Racing

Every year more and more hen and stag groups book a horse racing weekend. C-mon what's not to like, a load of horses running at break neck speed, the excitement of gambling a tenner on a horse you've never seen before and an atmosphere so good you would brush your teeth with it.

With great facilities at the race course, transport to and from the race track and a good standard of hotel a DesignaVenture Horse Racing Weekend is a winning stag do choice.

Bar & Club Passes

This is more of a necessity than a popular choice, however saying that, these days, with almost 70% of the stag groups we book tend to include at least a night-club entry. Most groups also include entry into a load of bars as there is nothing worse than being all dressed up and no where to go!

Talking about being all dressed up and no where to go, if you tend to get dressed up in fancy dress then please let us know and we will make sure that either the club is aware of your costumes OR we won't book you into the club that will turn you away just because of the way toy look.





Footgolf

Which game combines football and golf? "Umm golf-foot?"

No you plonker, footgolf, it's in the header!

Anyway, like Golf, you have to tee off and get the football in a hole on the green, obviously enlarged for a football, otherwise you'd have to puncture the ball.

It's great value for money and a real hit this year.

I'd like to see what a golf-foot looks like though.


Whatever you choose to do, for a memorable stag night, weekend, keep the boys out the bars!
