Queenstown

Dubbed the adventure capital of the World, Queenstown is a diverse adventure playground that is easily accessible from throughout New Zealand and the World thanks to an international airport with direct, daily links to Australia’s major cities.  With a broad selection of activities including adventures on the water, on land, in the air or a mix of both, there is something for the most extreme thrill seekers to those seeking a more refined experience.

If you’re planning a Stag weekend in Queenstown, here are the 7 places you have to stay, eat, drink and experience. It won’t be relaxing, but it will ensure your Stag has a party he’ll remember for all his days.

1Go-Karting at Game Over – situated right by the airport this is your first port of call to get the party started. Fully electric Go-Karts with a top speed of 45kph this indoor activity is the most affordable adrenaline activity in Queenstown. Ask the team to design a package for your group – whether you want a Grand Prix style event that culminates in a thrilling final or simply want to run a few laps each, anything is possible. After the karting, sort the men from the boys in the lazer tag arena, it’s like paint ball without the mess!  Note: Game Over operates a strict alcohol free policy so save the drinking ‘til afterwards boys!

2 Next up is The Playground, just outside of Queenstown. Offering an exciting range of group activities to provide ‘Big Kids’ with an incredible experience, perfectly suited to stag groups. Whether it be smashing into your opponents while playing Bubble Soccer or honing your bow and arrow skills during a game of Archery Combat, The Playground has unique activities that feature strategic skill, commando style and good, old fashioned fun!

3 You’re going to want to check into your accommodation and there’s none better than Base Backpackers.  Situated on the busiest street in Queenstown, right opposite the world famous burger joint, Base is your ‘one stop’ hostel with everything you need under one roof… bed, entertainment, nightlife and incredible views!

The day after
