Feeling like doing something crazy on your stag do? Chances are the answer’s yes. It’s a Knockout provides a totally different type of madness from the usual stag antics, but you’ll be laughing from start to finish in an activity that’s full of mad moments and nostalgia. Running right through the 60’s, 70’s & 80’s (and with a brief return around 2000) – It’s a Knockout was an absolute feature of tea-time TV viewing, and now it can be part of your stag do. If you haven’t seen it, it’s a mess of massive inflatable costumes, water and foam, obstacle courses and a LOT of falling over. For example one game involved trying to carry a bucket of water across a rolling log, while the opposition throw things to distract or knock over the competitor.
You’ll have to bring an old set of clothes and trainers, because even after you’ve climbed inside a huge inflatable costume things are still likely to get messy. You’ll also have to remember to bring your A game, the end of your day will see results announced, and as we’re sure you’re a competitive bunch of lads an extra incentive can be a prize of the winner, or forfeit for the losers.
It’s like a grown-up version of school sports day, and as it’s a grown up version you can head to the pub afterwards to keep the energy going into the evening.
For a kid of the 70s this was heaven but enough reminiscing, I bet here's something you didn't know.
If you fancy reliving your childhood, experiencing a bit of 70's entertainment then this is the stag party for you.
It's a Knockout was adapted from the French show Intervilles which featured teams, each representing a town or city, competing to complete bizarre tasks in absurd games, generally dressed in outlandish costumes... remember the Sidebottom?
The games had a regional feel being played in the home town's park, mix this with the unpredictable English weather and the entertainment was amplified by turning the grassland into a mud bath. Teams would be awarded points for their performance in each round, with the team scoring the most points winning the game.
Think gunge, ridiculous costumes (with this one it isn't only the stag who gets dressed up), fly walls, bungee runs, water slides, slippery logs, greasy poles (I know what you're thinking... stop it). This is a stag weekend with a difference and will have everyone laughing from the moment they see each other in your allocated costumes. A Bournemouth stag do or a sojourn to Nottingham could really benefit from this fun, nostalgic activity.
Stuart Hall made this famous and now you can have your very own go at It's a Knock Out.
This thriving regional capital of the West Midlands is one of the most popular stag destinations in the UK, although it’s hardly surprising with everything the city has to offer.
