Exciting Newcastle Stag Day Activity Ideas
"Wey aye, man- keep on reading like" and you will see some of the best Newcastle stag day ideas around.
Holy crap will you guys have an awesome time having a game of paintball here. You blokes will be putting on all this bad ass camo gear including your safety goggles of course, be put into two teams and then you will proceed to blast the hell out of each other! Paintball is just such an awesome way to spend a few hours. What makes a day here even cooler is that they have 8 different game scenarios for you to pick from game scenarios involve things like real warfare, zombies and a ton of other stuff as well!
Clay Pigeon Shooting
I am pretty certain that there is no way to feel more like a big man and over compensate for something that is small than by shooting things with a shotgun! Clay pigeon shooting is an absolute hoot (do people still say hoot?) you guys will be with an instructor who knows all there is to know about shotguns. He will ensure that you maniacs are safe and teach you all how to actually handle and shoot properly. One thing that I highly recommend is that you make sure to keep score and see who is the best shooter in the group. It is only fair that the best shooter is showered with riches and scantily clad Geordie women.
Karting Nation is the closest place to race go karts in Newcastle. This is just an awesome track that is set over two levels! The second level is a crazy 12 feet in height which when you are driving really fast can be pretty damn scary! This is just such an awesome Newcastle stag day idea! You guys, even those of you who are just absolutely horrible drivers on the Playstation let alone in real life will have a good time here. This is a fast and furious track and flying round it will show who is the best driver. The people who run this love stag groups so you can be sure they will make sure you have a tremendous time.
There is a calm and a serenity that comes with a round of archery that you just do not get with any other sport. You guys will have a quick little lesson then it’s time to see who was actually paying attention to the instructor as you see who can score the highest by smashing those arrows into the targets. This is a lot of fun and it is actually not hard at all to pick up so even people in your stag group who are terrible at sports will be able to do this. Archery is a lot of fun and its not to physically demanding which is great if you cannot be arsed to run around or stuff like that.
If you fine gents want to get a little bit dirty and have an awesome time in the process then my friends you need to do a little quad biking. This is one of the best places in the North East to go quad biking and it’s a perfect Newcastle stag weekend event. They have acres and acres of land for you guys to ride around. There is a fun track that you can use and really push these quad bikes to the limit and see just how much crazy terrain they can handle. It can be a tough track, but it is always funny as hell when one of your mates loses control and rides into a bush! The staff here are great and will make sure you know how to ride and that you have all your safety gear on.
Zorb Ball Football
Alan Shearer, Les Ferdinand, Gazza and many more have played for Newcastle now you can…….. well not really, but you can play a fun and crazy game of Bubble Football. Your upper body will be inside a zorb ball and from there on it’s a classic game of five aside football. Except you are actually encouraged to slam into your opponents and send them flying onto their asses! This is just so much fun and even people who are not too keen on football will enjoy this. This is not about skill! It’s just all about having fun and knocking down your mates and then laughing as they struggle to get up.
Even More Fun Newcastle Stag Day Ideas!
That is right lads, The Toon is not done with you yet and here are a few more cool things you blokes can get up to in Geordie land.
White Water Rafting
Hey I was as shocked as you are that you can do white water rafting this close to Newcastle! White water rafting is a fantastic idea for your Newcastle stag weekend! This is an activity that is all about you boys working as a team and pulling together to make it down the rapids with you all alive. I won’t lie some of you might die here……. ok so no one will die, but you may die of embarrassment if you are crying like a little girl! This is a great laugh and for you thrill seekers, white water rafting simply must be an activity that you do!
Canoeing and Kayaking
There is a really cool, Canoeing and Kayaking club in Newcastle which is well worth you blokes checking out. Offering both sports it really depends on your mood as to what one you do. Kayaking is more fast paced and balls to the wall and will see you trying to go really fast. Canoeing on the other hand is a much more slow paced, relaxed type of activity. Honestly both are pretty cool and you cannot really go wrong with either one of these.
Off Road Rage Buggies
Wow is all you will have to say when you sit behind the wheel of one of these kick ass, rage buggies. The easiest way to describe rage buggies is that they are like a hybrid of go karts and quad bikes……. But they haul some serious ass. These things just rip up the track and you guys will be loving it! You will get very muddy and possibly wet here. But trust me when I tell you that this is all part of the fun. If you are in the market for a driving experience that is a little bit more hard core, you really cannot beat rage buggies.
See a side of the North East that many of your probably did not know existed with a fun day of Gorge Walking! Gorge Walking is all about getting you guys back to nature and feeling like you are on an episode of Bear Grylls. You will be going through all kinds of terrain from climbing up rock walls, jumping into deep water pools and maybe even exploring a few caves as well. You never know what the hell is coming next here. Your guide will make sure you are all safe, but also take you guys to all the cool and interesting spots. This is one hell of an adventure and it would make a great activity for your Newcastle stag do.

Grab some Lunch
Ok so Lane 7 may be a bowling alley, but that my friends just makes eating here that little bit more awesome! The main reason that I want to recommend this place to you guys is because they serve some of the best damn burgers in the whole of the North East. These things are freaking huge and so tasty that I could just go for one of these right now!
Taxis In The Toon
Budget taxis, Dixons Taxis and Blue Line Taxis are just three of the what seems like a billion taxi companies in Newcastle. So if you have had a hard day gorge walking, paintballing or whatever and cannot be bothered to walk just call a cab!
Busiest Time of the year In Newcastle
Newcastle is a pretty busy city most of the time. It is a popular stag and hen do location, is a University city and just a popular tourist destination in general. So it is always going to be busy, but when the Sunderland Air Show is on the whole North East is extra crowded for a couple of days and it leads to the roads and public transport being a nightmare!
Sport In Newcastle
Home to Newcastle United, Geordies are very passionate about their club and it does have a very interesting history. Which you can learn all about when you go on a really cool stadium tour of St James Park and see the history of this amazing club.
The Best Festival In The North East
For a group of blokes the best festival in the North East is The Gateshead Beer & Music Festival you know a festival is awesome when it has beer and music in the title. With plenty of booze, music and other forms of live entertainment going on this is one festival that you will freaking love!
Howay Man I Broke Me Leg
If you do need a little medical treatment, maybe some bandages to cover a bleeding forehead (hey I won’t ask any questions) or some tablets to try and get rid of your hangover then there is a Boots Pharmacy pretty much in the heart of the city centre.
