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.

DTV Shredder

If you're looking for a power sport to really make your weekend away take off, you've got to try the Shredder. This is the first true crossover vehicle for action and power sports, and is based on 2 aggressive tank treads. A combination of tank, skateboard and motocross bike, this is an all year round, all-terrain vehicle capable of travelling through sand, snow, trials and even mountainsides at breakneck speed.

Riding the Shredder is similar to riding a jet ski. Once you give it some throttle, it starts smoothly rolling and is controlled by how you lean. It takes plenty of energy to ride as, like a snowboard, you have to stand up and rock left and right, using your whole body to steer. This is a highly involved riding experience, and one you'll never forget. You'll be given full instructions on how to operate this beast of a machine, and your headset communications mean you can take live instructions while you find your feet.

A TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence Award winner, this activity gets consistently great reviews, not least for the friendly and helpful staff who are on hand throughout. Your shredding experience takes place in Frodsham which is 30 miles outside of Manchester.

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 5 different games at Escape Room, each with a different level of difficulty and each with a different theme. 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. Can you solve a series of demented clues to escape from a serial killer's lair, or do your group need to work out how to get out of a haunted room? Tackle the most challenging room as a news reporter, tracking down the truth that the authorities want to hide! Each room is unique but all of them are exhilarating as you strive to escape.

Whilst not physically demanding, you'll need loads of creative energy, team work and attention to detail to make it. Are you up to the challenge? Can you beat the clock? There's only one way to find out!

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

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.
