Bored of driving karts around a track? Had one too many goes on a quad bike? Lads, for the stag party that absolutely, positively has to thrill every motherf*cker in the room, we proudly present the Rage buggy!
This slice of total motorised insanity is like nothing else you’ve ever driven. Forget cornering, Forget racing against the boys. If you really want to experience the last word in face-melting speed, you drive an off-road buggy so quick you’re not allowed to race it…
Now, we’re not saying you can’t go fast in a Rage buggy. We’re just saying you can’t go fast against other Rage buggies. These things are so ludicrously quick that putting two of them together on our Derby race track would be completely irresponsible. And while we’re all for a bit of stag party lunacy, we don’t actually want you to end up in hospital.
So instead, we let you unleash the beast one at a time, in a time trial challenge that’ll leave you with a face you can only get after driving a 600cc dirt buggy down a bespoke track! You’ll be grinning like a loon and panting like a dog when you cross the finish line. Usually it takes a few seconds to peel your fingers off the wheel, you’ve been gripping it so hard!
There are all sorts of cool things you can do on a stag party in Derby - blasting zombie targets with shotguns, building shelters, learning the ancient art of archery. But this is the only time you’ll get the opportunity to drive a vehicle so powerful it can only do time trials. Do you feel the need - the need for speed?
In a nutshell:
Two engines. Two drivers. No steering wheel. Lads, if you’re looking for a stag weekend driving activity that takes adrenaline rushes to the next level, this is it!
Welcome to the mad, bad world of Powerturns. These absolutely insane pieces of driving engineering are probably the greatest things we’ve ever seen. They’re basically a cross between a dragster and a super-agile off road buggy, and like we said: they don’t have steering wheels. Or brakes. Or pedals. In fact, the only way you can control one of these bad boys is with a throttle lever! Strap in at our driving centre (it’s just down the road from Derby), and prepare to be thrilled.
Each driver takes control of one back wheel, which is powered by its own engine. Open the throttle away from you to get the wheel revving in a forwards direction, pull back to get it revving in reverse. It’s as simple as that.
The tricky bit comes in when you realise your fellow driver is also controlling a wheel! You’ll have to work together in perfect synchronisation, if you’re going to get the Powerturn to travel in a straight line. Or you could go for the tightest, fastest turn in history by throwing one lever into full forwards, and the other into full reverse! Do that, and your Powerturn will spin on its axis at crazy speeds. Oh - and if you both accelerate in the same direction as fast as you can, you’ll do the mother of all wheelies.
Derby’s a lovely little city, nestling in beautiful countryside. But forget about that for a couple of hours. You’re not here to look at the trees. You’re here to feel the G force.
In a nutshell:
Mneeeeeh-mneeeeh-mneeehm! No, it’s not Jay off The Inbetweeners doing the Crazy Frog. It’s your engine. Yes, boys. We put a bunch of quad bikes in the wash, turned the heat up and shrunk them. Welcome to the funniest thing you can do on four wheels.
Micro quads are absolutely awesome. They’re itsy-bitsy little quad bikes, which develop a massive 160cc. That might not sound like much, but when you’re trying to control a thing that looks like it came out of a toybox, it’s all the speed you need! Topping out at just 17mph, these slippery, slide-y little beasts are worth more stag weekend laughs than anything else. Well, unless the groom gets so hammered in Derby’s Iron Gate that he ends up asleep in a bin.
This epic stag weekend race challenge takes place on our own driving site, just a short distance from Derby city centre. You’ll be tasked with beating your mates around slalom courses and obstacles. Can you handle the awesome power of the micro quad, as it wiggle and wriggles like a - well, like a really tiny bike?
Bigger isn’t always better! This is one of the most epic stag weekend races around. What micro quads lack in, erm, girth, they definitely make up for in hilariousness. Do it!
In a nutshell:
You’re going to see some pretty funny sights on your Derby stag do - like the best man’s brother trying to pull after too many Jagerbombs - but none of them come close to the bungee run! This hilarious inflatable challenge is so awesome it should be an Olympic sport. Olympics of hungover mentalists, that is.
Here’s how it works. Separate the lads into teams, and get them dressed up in stupid costumes (hey, it’s a stag do. You have to have stupid costumes). Then send them off two at a time, racing down an inflatable runway with a Velcro baton in their hands. The object of the game: the person who sticks his baton furthest down the line gets the most points. The team with the most points wins.
Oh - did we mention the runners are attached to massive bungee cords? Legging it along a bouncy-castle style racecourse, while the bungee is trying to pull you back to the starting line, is priceless. Trust us, everyone gets into the spirit of this one. You’ll be giving it everything you’ve got to get that extra inch, before you go flying back to the start at supersonic speed!
We love the bungee run. It’s a great way to put some fun into a hungover stag do Saturday: and it can be part of a bigger afternoon of driving and shooting events too. Get the lads away from Derby’s pubs and bars for a few hours, and get involved.
In a nutshell:
When you’re on a stag do, you want to make the most of the city you’re visiting. Derby’s full of great pubs, bars and clubs - but if you’re not a local, or haven’t been here before, it can be hard to pick the best ones out.
Avoid disappointment with our two night bar and club pass. It does exactly what it says on the tin - lets you into the finest bars in Derby, followed by an awesome nightclub! If a venue’s on the list, it’s guaranteed to be stag do-friendly. Now you don’t have to wander into bar after bar, looking for the ones all the hens are hanging out in. Just find the places on the pass, and follow your, um, nose.
Derby rocks pretty hard at night - our two night pass gets you into the places that rock hardest of all! The only question is, are you going back to all the same places for the second night of the stag do - or will you try some on the Friday, and the rest on Saturday? Our personal favourite is doing as many as you can on the first night, then going back to your favourite spots on the second.
It’s not easy arranging a stag do - and the responsibility of making sure everyone has a good night is a big one. So let us take care of the hard stuff! We’ll find the venues. All you have to do is turn up and have it large.
