Are you looking for a different kind of Stag Do?

As your last hurrah before the big day, you’re going to want to share a great experience with some great mates to see out the last of your single days. With our escape rooms and VR adventures, you’re guaranteed a memorable time together.

Using the following three concepts together, you can test whether your stag do ideas are a bust or a must.

  1. Memorable.
  2. Co-operative.
  3. Won’t get your wedding cancelled.

Two great stag activities in Southampton at Sneaky Dog Escapes

Whether you are based in Southampton or looking for a stag or hen do activity in Hampshire, we have two fabulous, bespoke and unusual stag do activities, specially designed for small stag groups.

Try a challenging escape room adventure in the physical world or in VR

If you’re looking for something a little bit different where everyone can get involved, then escape rooms are a great idea. People love rising to the challenge as a group, working together and feeling like they have missed their calling to MI5 when they complete their escape room mission. They make great activities for groups of a range of ages or a daytime activity before a meal or pub session.

Escape rooms and VR adventures leave your group with a grin on their faces and a ‘Remember when…’ on their lips. “Remember when I threw that key to you in virtual reality and you dropped it off a building”. “Remember when I climbed that pyramid wall and you had to shoot arrows to help me?”, “Remember when I found the secret entrance that led to the enemy hideout.”

Our physical escape room, Operation Spitfire transports you back to the 1940s where Britain and Churchill are relying on you to infiltrate the enemy hideout and stop the bombs in time. With intriguing puzzles and thematic sets using genuine 1940s props, it is escapism at its finest. I recommend fancy dress to make the day even more memorable. If you are a fan of “Peaky Blinders” then “Operation Spitfire” is the perfect opportunity to get your Cillian Murphy on. The new season takes place just a few years before Operation Spitfire.

In VR, you can experience all of the adrenaline with none of the danger. Use vines to climb across a chasm, shoot arrows to defeat monster bees or jump between floating islands. 

Escape rooms and VR escape adventures are epic. They make excellent stag do activities because they will leave you talking about your experiences long after the last lock is opened and the mission completed 

Fast-paced, adrenaline-fueled VR shooter

Avoid the British weather of paintball, the kids at the laser tag centre or waiting your turn on a clay pigeon shoot with our dynamic and immersive multiplayer shooter, Arena. The wide variety of maps and weapons will excite every fan of action games. Choose to work as a team or add a competitive edge. Play against the bots or against each other – you decide. You can even all gang up against the groom…and leave no bruises for the big day!

Our Latest Review!

Absolutely fabulous experience! The attention to detail was second to none and the puzzles were well considered and varied. Enough room for a group of six to work comfortably and more rooms to explore than any previous escape rooms completed.

The host was brilliant and gave enough subtle hints to keep us moving without giving away too much. Definitely the best in Southampton and possibly the south of England. When you have a 90 minute limit it makes such a pleasant change to actually need the whole time. Was absolutely worth every penny!
