Your stag or hen weekend is a once in a lifetime opportunity – and you’ve got to embrace the great outdoors. Gone are the days of drinking in a pub and heading out in inflatables (save those for the night, instead…), and replaced by action-packed activities. Stag and hen specialists, (https://www.lastnightoffreedom.co.uk/) Last Night of Freedom, are rounding up their top outdoor activities to sweep you up in an exciting whirlwind.
Race around Manchester in this intense hybrid. The (https://www.lastnightoffreedom.co.uk/activities/manchester-racing-hovercraft/) racing hovercrafts – one-seater Snapper and two-seater Marlin - are an all-new experience for your weekend, and you’ve got two impressive tracks to get to grips with the handles of the beast. Whilst described as ‘trying to steer a supermarket trolley with a handkerchief’… once you’ve got the hang of it – you’ll be away (literally). The two tracks, one on land and another on water, are spread across 18 acres of Marshland.
DTV Shredder Safari
Prepare for action on your Chester stag or hen weekend, on board the powerful (https://www.lastnightoffreedom.co.uk/activities/chester-dtv-shredder/) DTV Shredders. A unique cross-breed of a motocross bike, tank, Segway and skateboard… this is not like anything you’ve ever experienced before. The Dual Tracked Vehicle (DTV for short) has reinforced rubber tracks to tackle sand, snow, trials courses and even mountainsides, along with a skateboard deck to steer the vehicle. They boast adrenaline-fuelled 4-stoke 200cc engines, but you’ll have a practice lesson to understand the mechanics of the DTV. After that, you’re tackling the off-road course, receiving pointers through the helmet mounted communications. Sorted.
Mini Highland Games
Och aye the noo, lassies (and laddies). Get out and celebrate the best of Scotland, on your Edinburgh weekend. The (https://www.lastnightoffreedom.co.uk/activities/edinburgh-mini-highland-games/) Highland Games – tracing all the way back to 1889 – will pump every bit of blood. You’ll be playing Tug o’ War, Hurling the Wellies, Tossing the Caber, Putting the Stane, The Farmer’s Dash, The Haggis Malt Challenge and Weight o’er the Bar (and breathe). And, you’ll be doing all of this for the ultimate prize – a wee dram of whisky.
White Water Rafting
It’s, certainly, not a stag or hen do without getting chucked in a river… (https://www.lastnightoffreedom.co.uk/activities/cardiff-white-water-rafting/) White water rafting in Cardiff is set slap-bang in the Bay, in the centre of the International Sports Village. This epic course may be separate from the actual river, but it’s still just as exhilarating. It spans 250 metres and pumps in 16 cubic metres of water per seconds - you may get wet. They can also change the flow of water, depending on ability. However, as you are so skilled – an instructor will take you around the course, taking you through a whole load of challenges. Watch out for riding the wave…
Mini Cooper Italian Job Challenge
Once listed as the ‘number one best thing to do in London’ by Time Out – (https://www.lastnightoffreedom.co.uk/activities/mini-cooper-italian-job-challenge-london/) Mini Cooper Italian Job is an unforgettable activity for your celebrations. Basically, you’ll be part of the famous film, riding around in a classic fleet of Minis. You’ll don jumpsuits and tweed flatcaps, before you start your spectacular treasure hunt, with bars of gold in your boot for good measure. You’ll complete a series of tasks during your mission – including proposing to a member of public – and the team that gains the most points, wins the bubbly and the chocolates. There’s a lot at stake here.
Haway, you ready to gan radge? The (https://www.lastnightoffreedom.co.uk/activities/newcastle-geordie-games/) Geordie Gamesis like It’s a Knockout meets the Highland Games, with Alan Shearer and Ant and Dec thrown in (they’re not…). You’ll be split into teams to take on the Geordie Ale Run, Kebab Shop Duel, On Ya Bike, Geet Massive Sumo Marras (sumo suits), Geordie Racing Walking Tubes, Sling Ya Hook, Mortal Pitch and Toss, Larn Yerself Geordie and, finally, Ya GannaGet Clarty. You’re going to need that Geordie dictionary, as the losers of the day get covered in Newcastle’s finest bevvy.
