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 Manchester city centre, 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.

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.

With up to 6 players able to take part in each challenge, groups of up to 30 can all play at once. 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.

You may be asked to hunt for the cure for immortality in a Pharoah's tomb, or escape from a maximum security prison before your execution.

Bar crawl babes bar crawl with lapdance club and nightclub

Stag weekends generally mean a bar crawl, but how good is yours going to be? Why not place yourselves in the hands of the experts, and book a couple of gorgeous bar-crawl hostesses to sort everything out.

Oh, and did we say she'll be hot? We're talking mega bragging rights on the photos!

It is without doubt the best decision your stag party can make. Oh, and we did say the girls were hot didn't we??

About Manchester

Manchester’s thriving city centre is shopping central and if you fancy something a little more energetic then in and around the city you can find paintball, dodgeball and even a thrilling high ropes course, which is bound to get the laughs going. If the footie scene of Manchester is what has drawn you in then you can book onto a stadium tour and if you’re wanting to keep things classic then why not take the lads to the races in the area, before hitting the top spots of Manchester’s club scene.

Manchester is packed full of diversity and an air pure cool. You can go anywhere from up the Curry Mile for your choice of Indian restaurants to start the night to any number of different bar crawls and pubs which run the length of the city along Oxford Road and then into the centre. If you want to give the lads a bit of a challenge before hitting the clubs, then why not give Man V Food a go and see which of the lads has the biggest appetite. Once you’re ready for the club scene Manchester has everything from 24/7 indie rock spots to classic hard house joints and everything in between. The city has the coolest atmosphere and being up North also makes it great value so you’ll be able to get a lot of booze for your cash, even when you work in those club entry costs. Of course if you’re looking for late night entertainment that is more about the ladies than the lager then you can settle in for a show or two at one of Manchester’s premier lap dance clubs.
