Fire a genuinely lethal weapon on your stag weekend in Bristol, at this epic outdoor adventure centre! One of the activities you can do here is crossbow shooting. Can you handle the power?
Crossbows are one of the deadliest weapons in history. They have changed the fate of nations, and influenced the very fabric of modern society. If you like, we'll let you fire them in fancy dress.
This site is brilliant for stag weekends. The staff are up for a laugh, and don't mind if you rock up in a full mankini. They're serious where it counts, though, and that means you'll get a thorough safety briefing before you're allowed to handle the bows.
A crossbow can fire its bolt at around 300 fps (feet per second). That's easily enough to stop a zombie in its tracksâ€”just ask that guy from The Walking Dead. You'll need nerves of steel to hold the bow steady, but thanks to its light construction you won't need a lot of strength. All the power in the crossbow comes from the pulleys that control the string, and not from your muscles.
Shoot at conventional crossbow targets to get your eye in, and watch out for exploding surprises! If you get the bolt in the middle of a firebird target, it will go up in an impressive shower of sparks.
Get medieval on your stag weekend in Bristol!
