Top 5 Stag Party Ideas
So youíve chosen the destination for your stag weekend and you want to plan some activities? This is probably for the best; otherwise if you just stick to the bars and clubs then the whole weekend will be nothing more than a hazy drunken memory. Planning in an activity or two can really help set the weekend apart and make it one to remember. There are some activities in particular which stand above the rest and are guaranteed to give you and the guys some harmless competition and great memories.
One of the most popular and fun guaranteed activities for stag weekends is paintballing. Itís not surprising paintballing is so popular with men when it involves handling a gun packed full of paintballs and running around in a big open space whilst shooting each other!
Paintballing is not only great for the testosterone levels, itís also a great one to do as a large group as it means everyone can get involved as thereís always enough guns for a small army, no matter what size group you have.
Paintballing can take place in a wide variety of venues from warehouses to large wooded areas where the usual aim is to capture the flag which will be hidden somewhere on the course. Alternatively many likely to play ďLast Man StandingĒ, which as the name implies really ramps up the competition level and means a lot of you will no doubt have a few bruises the following day.
With the engines fired up, there arenít many better ways to get the adrenalin pumping than a go at quad biking.
Quad biking is a great activity no matter what the season. In the winter you can get down and dirty in the snow and mud, whilst when summer comes you have the chance to really get some speed up on the dry tracks.
Quad biking can take you through woods and on long treks through streams, or instead it can be based around a short but challenging track with lots of twists and turns. With quads varying in power from 100-300 CC thereís something for everyone no matter what your experience level is.
If youíre looking for an alternative stag do idea to the usual paintballing or quad biking then Zorbing is your answer.
A recent and increasingly popular activity, zorbing (or sphereing as itís sometimes known), involves throwing yourself down a hill in a giant inflatable ball Ė not an activity you can imagine being overly enjoyable with a hangover from the night before!
However, nonetheless, this activity is sure to get the adrenalin pumping and is definitely something you can guarantee not all of your friends have tried. Due to the nature of the activity with hills to roll down on being essential, the surrounding scenery in most locations is beautiful so this is a great one for the summer. They will certainly not be forgetting this experience in a hurry.
Itís not difficult to understand why men enjoy shooting on their stag weekends. Shooting is linked with testosterone and power, and with guns ranging from the world famous AK47 to the smaller but still powerful Glock youíre sure to find something you can take aim and fire with. If you fancy yourself as the next Rambo or just have a competitive streak then this is the perfect activity for you.
Some of the best destinations for shooting can be found in Eastern Europe where in some cases youíll be shooting in real police training ranges. Youíll get lots of ammunition and target practice, although thereís no hiding behind any excuses at the end when the targets are taken down and compared to see who was the most accurate, and who completely missed the mark.
Finally, if youíre still short of stag do ideas then what better way to start a sophisticated night out than to try your hand at gambling? Donít worry if you donít know how to play cards though, thereís plenty more to them than just poker.
