Battle Zone Archery

Battle Zone Archery is the next big thing in combat sports. Combining the mayhem and exhilaration of paintball with the fun of dodgeball, and requiring the skills of archery, this is a really exciting experience. Have your very own Hunger Games!

Two teams are pitted against each other across a purpose built field layout with a referee. Each team has up to 5 specially designed bunkers, 5 target cones are placed in front of each bunker. If you get hit by an opponent's arrow you're out, unless a team mate catches an arrow headed for them, in which case you can be resurrected. Points are awarded for each eliminated player and for hitting the cones. The layouts and game scenarios are switched around, and a range of barriers strategically placed across the area of play as part of each battle. The session lasts an hour and in that time you'll play several games, such as Battle Zone, Archery Dodge, Last man standing and the Kamikaze run.

All equipment is provided, included a protective face helmet. The bows are easy to use, and the arrows are designed to absorb the impact meaning the whole experience is less painful and messy than paintball, but just as competitive and just as much fun!

With a location close to the centre of Edinburgh, Battle Zone Archery is a great addition to your weekend away. With no need for an expensive and time consuming transfer to an out of town paintball field, you can easily fit this in alongside other things that you can do in the same place, such as Bubble Football, Binocular Football or an Old School Sports Day.

What's included?
  • Bow and arrows
  • Protective helmet

Escape Rooms

It's a race against time as you find the clues, solve the puzzle and try to break out of the room. This is a fun and exciting activity where you and your mates will need to work together. With the clock ticking down, have you got what it takes to escape? It's a bit like the Crystal Maze, the Cube and Cluedo all rolled into one.

There are 2 puzzle rooms, with each taking up to 8 players, so groups of up to 16 can all take part at once. 2 teams can either either compete or play differing scenarios. You get an hour of play time in which you need to manipulate objects to find clues and solve the puzzles. If you work everything out before the time runs out, you escape the room and win the game. You'll be given hints if you get stuck, and you don't need any special skills to play.

Become space cadets in Operation Odyssey. You're on the International Space Station, racing against time to fix the escape pod before it's too late. Can you fix all the systems damaged in a meteor shower, then attempt your escape before the next one strikes? Operation Deadlock asks you to become an undercover agent of a top secret organisation. Can you be one of an elite minority who make it through the training room, cracking the puzzles, clues and riddles from different eras of the Agency's history? Deadlock offers you the unique chance to go directly head to head with another team - this one will test all your skills, with the added pressure of hearing the other teams progress!

This is something really different to try, and we guarantee it will give everyone loads to talk about.

Highland Games

When in Scotland, no Stag Weekend is complete without trying your hand at the superb Highland Games. This is a popular activity and you will try competitive tasks such as:

Caber Toss
This is where a long tapered pine pole or log is stood upright and hoisted by the competitor who balances it vertically holding the smaller end in his hands. Running forward and attempting to toss it in such a way that it turns over with the upper end striking the ground first.

Stone Put
Similar to the modern-day shot put as seen in the Olympic Games. Instead of a steel shot, a large stone of variable weight is often used. There are also some differences from the Olympic shot put in allowable techniques.

Farmers Dash
This is done by grasping the handles of the weights in each hand, standing up with them, and walking. In professional competition, the weights vary from around 265 pounds per hand to almost 400 pounds per hand! The contest can be to walk as far as you can with the weights with a pre-set number of set downs allowed, or to walk/run a set distance for the fastest time.

Other games possible include Tug O War, Haggis Hurling, The Farmers Dash and The Sheaf Toss.

What's included?
