If you're into crazy hybrid sports we've got a fresh one for you: Battlezone Archery. Best described as a big archery battle with paintball and dodgeball-type games, this is the best thing to happen since beer goggle football came to Scotland. Arrows have been altered so they're not pointy. Rubber ends suck up the shock so you don't take it. Team themed stuff like whisky tasting and a trip to the castle with competitive combat games and tick all the boxes. That way, you'll have yourselves a well balanced stag weekend in Edinburgh.
The whole thing lasts about an hour and is run for you by professional, accredited events staff. They'll give you protective gear for the games along with bows and arrows of course. Then it's time for the fun and games! There are five in a match. Expect everything from attack and defend to run the gauntlet-style games where you've got to move fast with no cover and dodge the enemy's arrows until you get to safety.
As this event takes place in the city centre it won't take up a massive chunk of your Edinburgh stag weekend. Turn up, unleash hell on the enemy, and then retire to the nearest boozer for beer. This is Edinburgh, there's a pub on every corner so you won't have far to go for post-match pints and shorts.
In a nutshell:
