Laser Quest is a good cheap alternative to paintballing, cos by the gods, the costs there add up quickly. Even more fun if you smuggle bottles of beer in. There's one place up in Cleethorpes that is the most low-rent, scabby place you can imagine - the lasers look like converted Bosch power drills - but it's full of bouncy castles and ball pools and slides as well, it is brilliant.
Could always go for a long hike somewhere round Wales or the Peak District if you're so inclined? Or hire a canal boat, then some of you can get drunk and your sober friends can steer
If you want laser tag try Adrenalin Rush - Welcome to the Frontpage - that is run at our school sports ground in Chiswick
bushcraft home of bushtruck It's got a telephone number on there so you might be able to get hold of them?
We almost had Adam from BBC country file coming to film us on the weekend too, but they cancelled at the last minute. Must have been a cattle emergency that week or something.
couple of ideas...
clay pigeon shooting
I went to this thing called 'Go Ape' the other week, basically high ropes in a forest but it was really good fun.
My stag was quite sedate, just a few drinks and a curry, just what i wanted.
I would not have been impressed had my best men planned something like the usual.
I would however have enjoyed some kind of paintball/survival/etc thing
edit: there's always next time round!

Yeah, I did paintballing a few weeks ago and it's damn annoying to be knocked out quickly, especially as the downtime between games at the place I was playing at was pretty long (4 different game modes/8 rounds in total)Personally I find outdoor laser tag to be more fun than paintball, as for novices in particular it removes the frustration of being 1-shotted right at the start of a round
It's also pretty expensive as well, as even if you try to conserve ammo you'll end up needing to spend a fair amount to enjoy yourself.
It was a fun day out & the pain wasn't as bad as some people say (tho the 4 layers of clothing to beat the -5c weather helped!) but I wouldn't do it for someones stagdo :P
Curry is the way forward. My fav nights out are when we all get back together (A lot of my friends are spread about around the country now) and have a flaming hot curry with lots of beer.just a few drinks and a curry,

A variation on the Monopoly pub crawl. Get on a circle line station and stop at each one drinking half a pint at each stop. See how far you can get. Try to have a different brew at each location.
I'm getting married in just under 2 years and just chosen my best man. Don't want any boozy weekend but was looking at adventure holiday type things myself. Quite fancy off road segwaying
Sorting my stag doo at the moment,were going Clay Pigeon shooting during the day then going to the casino in the evening, they do a package deal which inc food drinnk chips and your own dealer
