    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

    Seconded. So much fun, though not so sure about for a stag do

    If you want laser tag try Adrenalin Rush - Welcome to the Frontpage - that is run at our school sports ground in Chiswick

    The one we went on was run by a guy called Mike Armstrong near Keighley, West Yorkshire. He was really good, but his web skills weren't. His site was at bushtruck.co.uk, but the only archive I can find is here... 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.

    I'm off to Krakow in may. Much cheaper and better than anything in the uk.
    That's why I've suggested Monopoly or Scrabble. A stag do is meant to be exciting / dangerous / stupid. Take him to Amsterdam, get drunk, then cling-film him naked to a lamp-post in the red-light district and put the pictures on FaceBook.

    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!

    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
    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)
    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

    just a few drinks and a curry,
    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.

    There are plenty of websites offering ideas:

    Link 1: Stag Do | Organise Stag Do Activities, Hotels and Weekends in the UK | DoStagDo

    Link 2: Stag Dos | Stag Weekends | Stag Do & Hen Party Organisers UK & Abroad | DesignaVenture [Take care with this one if you are checking this at work as it has a few 'racy' pictures directly after following the link]

    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.
