Introduction

Planning a stag party in Toronto before getting hitched and want to step away from the typical nightlife scene? Then there’s no better place to be! 

After all, the city itself is already home to countless (we tried counting them… we can’t) unique and eccentric experiences that will make your bachelor party all the more unforgettable (enough to make the bride-to-be a wee bit jelly) 

So, are you ready for one of the best nights of your lives? Then grab your best buds, and check out our list of our favorite wacky stag ideas in Toronto! Let’s go boys!

Table of Contents

1. Bubble Soccer Bash

What’s better than regular soccer? Well, something much wackier… like a bubble soccer bash with the boys! Think regular soccer, except this time you strap yourself into a giant inflatable bubble and try not to tumble down or fall over while bouncing off of your friends. 

Now, we don’t know about you, but we think it combines athleticism (you have that, right?) with just the right amount of absurdity, making it one of our favorite wacky stag ideas in Toronto. Plus, it’s silly! And who doesn’t like being silly with their best buds? 😆

Bubble soccer is one of the best stag ideas in Toronto.

Pointers and Tips:

  • Booking: Reserve a field or indoor space in advance through providers like Bubble Soccer Toronto. Many offer packages that include equipment and referees, so all you need to do is show up and have fun!
  • Safety: Ensure everyone wears appropriate gear and follows the rules to avoid injuries. Emphasize that the fun comes from bouncing, not tackling. This isn’t football, folks, and you don’t want any broken bones right before you get married! 😫
  • Hydration: Bring plenty of water and snacks to keep everyone energized. Bubble soccer is more exhausting than it looks! Like, really exhausting. 

Pricing:

  • Packages: Typically start at $250 for an hour, accommodating up to 10 players (so make sure to bring all your mates!)
  • Additional Costs: If you’re renting a venue separately, expect to budget extra for that.

2. Ninja Warrior Experience

Admit it, one look at them running and jumping around and we all immediately wanted to be ninja at some point (unfortunately, those wiki how-tos simply aren’t effective enough). So, while you can’t exactly be trained in the way of the sword and stealth like Naruto and his gang, you can at least be a “ninja warrior” for the day at Pursuit OCR, an indoor obstacle course and fitness center! 

Easily one of our favorite stag ideas in Toronto, this wacky activity involves tackling a series of challenging obstacles that are inspired by the hit TV show. From climbing walls to swinging ropes, it’s a really fantastic way to test your physical limits and bond with your friends through friendly competition.

Ninja Warrior is also one of the best stag ideas in Toronto you can try.

Pointers and Tips:

  • Group Classes: Opt for a group class to get personalized instruction and tips. This can help everyone get the most out of the experience, while also having a good idea of what to expect!
  • Warm-Up: Ensure everyone warms up properly to prevent injuries. Stretching and a light jog can go a long way.
  • Photographs: Capture the moments with plenty of action shots. These memories are worth preserving! In fact, why not go all-out and bring a Toronto photographer with you for the memories… maybe just don’t ask them to take on the challenges with you, equipment and all…

Pricing:

  • Admission: $20 per person for a single session. 
  • Private Group Sessions: Available for an additional fee, typically around $200 for a group.

3. Ghost Walk and Haunted Pub Crawl

Alright, alright, you’re still looking for a pub crawl. We get it, as it’s one of the most classic stag ideas in Toronto, or anywhere for that matter. But how about a pub crawl with a twist… like a ghost walk! Because nothing’s better than sharing some spooks and a slight buzz with your bestest buddies!

Led by knowledgeable guides, you’ll hear fascinating ghost stories and visit some of the city’s most haunted locations, ending each stop with a visit to a haunted pub. It’s a perfect blend of history, mystery, and socializing, all with a couple of drinks on hand! 

And you never know, you might discover your new favorite photo spot for you and your partner!

Looking for unique stag party ideas in Toronto? Go on a ghost walk with your buddies!

Pointers and Tips:

  • Tour Providers: Book through companies like The Haunted Walk. They offer various themed tours to match your group’s interests.
  • Dress Appropriately: Wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather. Toronto’s weather can be unpredictable, so layering is a good idea.
  • Drink Responsibly: Enjoy the spooky ambiance of the pubs but pace yourself. The goal is to have fun, not overindulge. So be safe!

Pricing:

  • Tours: Typically cost around $25 per person.
  • Drinks: Budget for beverages at each pub stop. Plan for about $10-$15 per drink, depending on the location.

4. LARPing (Live Action Role-Playing)

Ever wondered what it feels like to try Live Action Role-Playing, well wonder no more! Because in our next stag party ideas in Toronto, we’ll be doing just that! An interactive experience that involves dressing up in costumes and acting out a story or battle scenario in a fictional setting, LARPing is much like playing video games but in real life, which makes it better!

What’s more, Toronto itself also offers various LARPing groups and events that can cater to different themes, from medieval battles to post-apocalyptic survival. It’s a great way to let loose and immerse yourselves in a different world for a day… like maybe in a world where you’re ACTUAL ninjas… 🥷🥷

LARPing is a fun activity to do with friends, stag party or not.

Pointers and Tips:

  • Research Groups: Find a local LARPing group or event that matches your interests. Websites and forums dedicated to LARPing can be very helpful.
  • Costumes: Encourage everyone to get into character with appropriate costumes and props. Many LARPing events have rental options if you don’t want to buy your own gear.
  • Immersion: Embrace the storyline and have fun with the role-playing. The more into it you get, the more enjoyable it will be!

Pricing:

  • Event Fees: Can range from $20 to $50 per person, depending on the complexity of the event.
  • Costumes and Props: Costs vary widely. Renting might cost $20-$50, while buying can range from $50 to several hundred dollars.

5. Trampoline Dodgeball

Didn’t enjoy dodgeball during gym class? Well, now you can because in our next entry in this list of stag party ideas in Toronto, we’re playing trampoline dodgeball! 

Combining childhood nostalgia with high-energy fun, this game lets you bounce, flip, and dodge your way through an exhilarating game! It’s a lively and enjoyable way to get your heart pumping and your spirits soaring, all with your bestest buddies!

Dodgeball is also one of the most fun stag party ideas in Toronto you can try.

Pointers and Tips:

  • Reservations: Book your time slot in advance, especially for large groups. Sky Zone can get busy, especially on weekends.
  • Safety Rules: Follow all safety guidelines provided by the venue. Trampoline parks have strict rules for a reason—respect them to avoid injuries, especially before your wedding day!
  • Team Spirit: Split into teams and consider themed costumes for extra fun. Matching t-shirts or headbands can add a fun element to the competition.

Pricing:

  • Jump Time: Prices start at $20 per person for a one-hour session.
  • Party Packages: Available for larger groups, including private dodgeball courts and access to party rooms. These can range from $300 to $500 depending on the size of the group and the duration.

6. Archery Tag

And for our last entry in this list of stag party ideas in Toronto, we’ll unleash your inner Legolas (without the long, flowing blonde hair) by playing Archery Tag! Essentially a hybrid of dodgeball and paintball where players use foam-tipped arrows to tag opponents, this fast-paced game is perfect for groups that are looking for a very action-packed activity (like a group of buddies on the hunt for a stag party!) 

What’s great with this activity is that the Archery District in Toronto already offers everything you need for your epic (but safe!) battle, including all of the bows, arrows, and safety gear.

Archery is always a fun activity to try with your buddies.

Pointers and Tips:

  • Booking: Secure your session ahead of time to ensure availability. Archery tag is growing in popularity, so spots can fill up quickly.
  • Team Strategy: Develop team strategies to dominate the game. Communication and coordination are key, so make sure to work together!
  • Comfortable Attire: Wear athletic clothing and shoes for optimal mobility. You’ll be moving around a lot, so comfort is essential.

Pricing:

  • Sessions: Typically cost around $25 per person for a one-hour game.
  • Group Discounts: Available for larger groups, often starting at groups of 10 or more. Discounts can range from 10% to 20% off the total price.
