Our Top Six Birmingham Stag Ideas
Here I have for you the all time top ideas for things to do in Birmingham
You boys are in for one heck of an amazing time here! Paintball is something that many blokes want to do on a stag day and here is one of the best places to go to war with your mates, shoot them in the back and let them know you are the man! What is just so freaking cool about playing paintball here is that they have all these different areas which have their own game scenario/story. Not only do these areas have their own stories, but they have their own structures, props and personality too! It is like you have been thrown into a video game or an action movie!
4 X 4 Off Road Driving
Here you get to haul ass in a really amazing 4 X 4! You blokes will get to see just how good your driving skills are and just how much ass these vehicles can kick during your day of 4 X 4 Off Road Driving. The terrain that they will have you blokes driving over is just freaking nuts! I swear there is an incline that they make you drive up which will make you think the damn car is going to tip over! These cars can pretty much just drive through anything that is in front of them! This is a lot of fun and it can also be really damn scary when it’s your turn to sit in the back as one of your mates drives!
Human Table Football
What!!!!!! Is something I am sure a few of you guys are saying! But this is the real deal my friends. A game of human table football is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. You guys will be put into teams. Enter this big arena type thing and then you will be put together as if you were part of a table football game! If one of you wants to go left…… you all have to go left. This is a great laugh and teamwork is a must if you want to win. One of the things that makes this an awesome Birmingham stag day idea is that there is no athletic skill required here at all! Even the non-footie gents in your stag party will enjoy this.
Zombie Sniper Shooting
Ok so this activity here is a wee drive from Birmingham, but holy crap is this day of zombie sniper shooting worth it! You guys have woken up and the world has literally gone to hell. A woman is Prime Minister, EastEnders is on 24/7 and there is also a zombie apocalypse going on! You and your trusty sniper rifle are tasked with putting the undead back in the ground! If you do not have a steady trigger finger, calm nerves and the eyes of a hawk then you may have to kiss your ass goodbye! This is just so much fun and something that I think in a year or two will be the most popular stag do activity in Birmingham. If you love things like The Walking Dead, Dawn Of The Dead, Call Of Duty and other cool stuff then you will love this!
Clay Pigeon Shooting
In staying with the shooting theme I have for you blokes an hour or two of, clay pigeon shooting. I have yet to meet a bloke who has not had a great time, clay pigeon shooting! First of all you guys will be taught just how to handle one of these kick ass guns. The first time you hold a shotgun is just so damn cool! But even cooler is that you will be taught by a real marksman how to shoot properly. Then when it is time for action, you will have the best chance possible of blowing those clay pigeons into little bits! Not only is this a fun Birmingham stag day idea, clay pigeon shooting also is a great way to blow off a little steam as well.
There are a ton of places to go, go karting here in the UK, but right here is regarded by many as the best. To start with the track is freaking huge! They can handle 20 karts on the track here so even if you have a pretty big stag group, you guys will not have to stand around for ages waiting for your turn. The karts are fast as hell and handle incredibly well, your driving skills will be put to the test here, but also this is the kind of thing where even a “average” driver will be able to have a lot of fun with. They love stag groups here and will make certain that the guy who wins your little GP gets treated like a star!
A Few More Great Birmingham Stag Day Ideas
A city the size of Birmingham has plenty more awesome things for you guys to get up to and here are a few more great Birmingham stag day ideas.
If there is one “sport” that pretty much any one can do no matter how horrendous shape they are in, archery is it! This is a lot of fun and archery is a very popular stag day activity because of how easy it is for people to pick up the basics. Now getting good at archery does require a great deal of skill, but I am sure more than a few of you will get a few lucky bulls eyes. One way to make this even more fun is to put a couple of drinks on the line! So who gets the high score gets out of buying a couple of rounds! One thing I will say (speaking from experience here!) make sure you have a long sleeved t-shirt or a jumper on so you do not bruise the hell out of your arms!
Bubble Ball Zorb Football!
Let me tell you that during your Birmingham stag weekend, watching two mates slam into each other while in zorb balls is one of the funniest things you will ever see! Zorb football is the craziest and most fun way to play football. There is no skill here! pretty much the team who can slam into the other team first will be the winner. Sure you have to score goals, but the real fun here is knocking your mates on their big fat rear ends. The fact you are in these zorb balls does put things on a more level playing field so even if you have a guy who fancies himself of a Ronaldo type player, they will still be no match for a guy slamming into them.
Oh crap!!! Is what I said when I found out, bungee jumping was something I had to try! This is one of if not the highest bungee jump in the UK. At 160 feet this is something that will really make you check your balls! The thing with this is, is that yes it is scary as hell and you will be crying for your mummy. But once you actually build up the courage (which I have good faith in you that you will) and you make the jump. The rush of adrenaline you get is really indescribable. This is an experience that honestly words do not do justice. So if you are a bunch of thrill seekers and want to do something a little bit mental. Then jumping off a huge ass crane is what you need to do!
Lastly I have for you maniacs a pretty cool activity that is suitable for your whole group. Indoor rock climbing is a great Birmingham stag day idea. You see this place has rock walls of all shapes and sizes…. Well not shapes, but they do come in different sizes. They have some smaller, beginner walls for you blokes not too keen on heights. And then they have some walls that are so high, Spider-Man would piss his pants at the thought of climbing them. This is a fun couple of hours and if it is pissing down with rain, you do not have to worry as its all indoors!
