When it comes to planning bachelor parties, there’re plenty of clichés. But if it’s come time for you to plan your friend’s big send off and you’re coming up short–there’s also lots you can do that’s completely different. From a whiskey tasting tour that traverses Toronto’s best whiskey bars to an all-out medieval-style battle-fest, check out these 10 unique ways to throw a bachelor party in Toronto.
#1 – Have one last ultimate rage out
It might be true that this is your friend’s last chance to break things without any consequences. Give him the gift of the ultimate rage out at Battle Sports in North York. You can book a smash session for him and load it up with printers, china dishes, and even lawn gnomes. Or you can go in as a team—up to four people—and just give’r.
#2 – Follow the urban whiskey trail
Great adventures start with a good whiskey. If your friend is always on the lookout for the next best whiskey bar, take the crew on Toronto Food Tour’s stellar whiskey tour: the Urban Whiskey Trail. This four-hour journey includes whiskey tastings, whiskey cocktails, and entry into Toronto’s best whiskey watering holes.
#3 – Get medieval at Stryke Target Range
Sure axe throwing is fun, but why should you have to choose between axes, arrows, and knives? At Stryke Target Range you don’t have to. Check out Tour de Stryke, their signature three-hour all-you-can-throw battle-fest. Take turns learning to throw knives, chuck axes, and shoot arrows. One of those doesn’t appeal to you? They also have automatic air guns. Check them out in Brampton and Toronto where they can host parties from 4 to 150.
#4 – Eviscerate the groom at paintball
There’s a reason this is a bachelor party classic. Check out Defcon Paintball for an ultimate game of paintball. You can play in Toronto and Mississauga for $30 per person. These are indoor arenas with sand fields, so be prepared for sand to get everywhere. Defcon can accommodate groups from just 5 to over 40, and the price of admission covers all your rentals.
#5 – Check out the race track at Formula Kartways
Have a need for speed? Indoor go-karting is a great place to start your bachelor party. Check out Formula Kartways in Brampton. Feel the adrenaline pump through your body as you race fast powered 4-stroke, 7.5-horsepower, gas-powered go karts on a sleek, technical speedy indoor race track.
#6 – Go axe throwing like badass lumberjacks
Nothing screams bachelor party like grown men throwing axes. That’s why you have to bring the party to BATL. With four locations in the GTA, this is a fun and convenient way to kick things up a notch—and they can host groups from 6 to 150. Pro tip, their Toronto West location has a licensed bar and kitchen.
#7 – Organize a funny soccer game
Though you may not think soccer is very funny, you will when you’re all wearing massive bubble suits and bumping into each other. Soccerworld in Toronto can be a great source of fun, especially if you come ready for fumbles and falls.
#8 – Escape from Toronto’s fanciest escape room
For the grooms with an affinity for history, check out Toronto’s fanciest escape room, Escape Casa Loma. Featuring three different stories, each steeped in Toronto’s dark past, Escape Casa Loma is the ultimate escape experience. These games take you through the castle’s rooms, up to its tallest tower, and down to its secret subterranean passageways, with creative puzzles and live actors throughout. But these games don’t come cheap—and they fill up fast. Book well in advance!
#9 – Keep it classy with a whiskey tasting
Sure you could just go out and get drunk in a local pub–but you can do that anytime. For a bachelor party keep it classy (at least to start…) with a whiskey tasting in Toronto’s Distillery District. Hosted by the Toronto Institute of Bartending, known for their fine spirits and personable cocktail making classes, you can choose from a whiskey–or bourbon–tasting, which includes a full beverage, six samples, and a cheese board.
#10 – Play an epic game of archery tag
Get your adrenaline pumping with archery tag. Archery District in Scarborough is a popular option for all its obstacles, hiding places, and creative battle scenarios. They also allow for private bookings, if you’re looking to get the archery pitch all to yourselves.
