Nothing says 'stag weekend' quite like a banana boat ride! Until recently, you had to go to places like Benidorm to get on board. Now you can do it on a Reading stag do. We've found a water sports centre just off the M4 with a lake and a bunch of giant bananas. It's five to a banana and first one to scream buys the shots later. Grab a buoyancy vest and a helmet, jump on and see who yelps first! The driver of the motor boat loves having a bit of fun with stag parties. Expect fast speeds, tight turns and comedy moments aplenty. You will end up in the water so you've got to be able to swim.
Here's how this works: the instructors will give you a quick briefing, kit you all out with safety gear, and then get you on the banana boat. Hang tight! Banana boats don't half shift when they get going. It may look hilarious but this is one hell of a wet and wild ride, especially when the motor boat starts weaving across the lake like a snake.
You're pretty much guaranteed priceless photos and video of a banana boat ride so make sure phones and cameras are juiced up and ready to go. Get a photo of the stag wobbling into the water with his arms and legs up in the air. Share on social media. Job done!
