Archery Animal Targets – Beginners to ExperiencedForget about just shooting at your standard bullseye targets as we have multiple animal targets for your to test out your skills. Perfect for beginners as you can practice before moving on to our animal targets which are now more open and less covered by shrubbery making it slightly easier for beginners to get a hit however at varying distances and size it still makes a challenge for anyone who is up for it.
Group Activity Ideas Bristol Up To 20 PeopleWe have a new path installed to ensure our customers safety when walking from the course and back along with new concrete stands which are level for a more accurate shot. We can take on groups from around 2 – 20+ participants so the more the merrier and as we have been expanding from 15 to 30 targets everyone gets a shot at having a go and there’s a wide range of targets for you to choose from!
Hen Party Ideas BristolIt’s a difficult time when your best friend announced her engagement and you’ve been appointed as the maid of honour, now you’ve been left with the task of arranging a hen weekend for the girls and you haven’t got a clue of things hens can do in Bristol. That’s where we can help – Send a message via our Contact Form or call our friendly team organisers on 01179 353300 to have a chat. Here’s some of our recommended party ideas for hens to do in Bristol:
1. Bristol Activity CentreWhy not start your day in the great outdoors at Bristol Activity Centre? We offer a range activities that will suit every girl in the group. Get down and dirty on one of our hen party favourites is the Quad Biking with a thrilling challenging trek (we offer coveralls to protect your clothes) Alternatively, test your skills in a woodland Archery session and beat your friends by hunting the most animals in an hour! If neither of these work for you, then perhaps you could release your inner Viking with a spot of Knife and Axe throwing which is always a great challenging activity, especially for a hen weekend Fancy yourself as a sharp shooter? Consider Clay Pigeon Shooting with real shotguns – we have shot guns in a range of weights to suit everyone, and also surpressed shotgun cartridges which are perfect to learn how to shot gun shoot without any of the “kick back” from the heavier shotguns. Whatever you choose, we can accommodate everyone.
2. BurlesqueBurlesque is always a great idea when planning your hen night out. In Bristol, we have a Burlesque festival held in September that you can pre-order tickets for or we have Pink Kitten Dance School who actually offer a session for hen’s to come and learn how to do the burlesque dance – why not expand your skills? For smaller parties you’re looking at around 1 1/2 hours and up to 2 hours for bigger parties. Burlesque is a great way to get all the hens involved – even the ones with two left feet. You can have a giggle at the over-sexualised costumes and failed dance moves and the best part is you can do it whilst sipping red wine in your living room because they come to you – the best mix for a brilliant hen weekend, wine and giggles.
3. CasinoWith a little help from lady luck, you can have the best hen party in Bristol. Like a cocktail of flowing money, glamorous surroundings and a boost of adrenaline a casino is an excellent addition to any hen weekend that’s looking for fun thrills. It wouldn’t hurt any hen party to have a little spin on a roulette table or a go at the blackjack – the rush of winning big spices up any evening and puts more in the pot towards the drinks. With a variety of options to go to, Rainbow Casino being one, you have plenty of choice. The lights from the machines will dazzle you and the girls and who knows – it could result in you leaving the night a millionaire.
4. Butler in the BuffDo you know what the best addition to a hen party is? A butler in the buff! Why you ask? Who wouldn’t want a hunk dressed in a variety of options? Choose from a butler with nothing but his apron if you’re feeling cheeky or if you want a butler with a little bit more modesty choose from either black boxers or suit trousers. Feel awkward having a handsome stranger following you around, ask him to join in with some super-fun and super-embarrasing hen party games. He’ll even host them for you – choose your butler from a famous site called butler in the buff and you can choose his uniform, how long you want your new party member for and you can choose from a male butler or a female butler or both so there’s something for everyone. The best part is he will mix and pour your cocktails and make your hen evening the best it can be, what a brilliant addition to a hen party weekend.
5. Cocktail Making.Cocktail making is a classic hen party idea, but, where the hell can you do it in Bristol? Fret not – there are plenty of places for cocktail making in Bristol. Such as, PRYZM in the town centre. PRYZM is a popular venue for hen’s in Bristol and they do cocktail making classes there. But the fun doesn’t stop there – if you come do an activity with Bristol Activity Centre in the day we can actually get you free entry into PRYZM on the evening so you will only have to worry about paying for the class itself.
Ever wondered what it’s like for a soldier out on the battlefield?Experience it for yourself at Bristol Activity centre. Playing on a decommissioned military base, with remarkable underground bunkers and military ruins ready for you to explore. Take cover in an army helicopter, a 432 Tank, an armoured personnel carrier or inside a navy boat. Whatever you choose, you’re guaranteed to have a blast.
What to wear paintballing?Clothes Loose lightweight and of course comfortable clothing. It’s advised not to layer up, even in the colder months, as all that adrenaline pumping through your veins will warm you up in no time. Although people believe layering up will make it hurt less but this is a myth – body armour if available if you’re too worried about getting hurt. We also recommend that you wear old clothing as nobody wants to get a new t-shirt or hoodie muddy or ruined and this is possible at our venue. Footwear Your footwear must be comfortable, and have a good grip – which is essential to stop you slipping over. We don’t recommend plimsoles as they do not provide enough grip! and sandals & heels are prohibited due to the uneven, outdoor terrain. Instead, we suggest you opt for some walking boots, wellies with deep tread, or old trainers. Do Paintballs stain your clothes? Paintballs do not stain, they are made out of water soluble, non toxic gelatine so they wash right out of your clothes. We provide you with the following: – Full face goggles – All in one Coveralls – Your paintball marker – We also offer optional body armour/chest protection for ladies and small children.
Paintball upgrade ExtrasUpgrade guns, pyrotechnics, smoke grenades, paint grenades, armoured paintball gloves, are available to purchase all day from our HQ for those that want a more authentic feel and with a variety of maps and missions, there’s something for everybody. Bristol Activity Centre really takes the military simulation to the next level, and being the accredited UK registered UKSPF venue up to the highest recognised standards, you can be safe in the knowledge you are playing at a safe venue and have an awesome day. Still not convinced? Hear what people think of Bristol Activity Centre’s paintballing:
Jcoombes2017 says: “I took Jonny my son for his 14th birthday with a group of 10 to the Portishead paintballing centre. We were well looked after by Mark who took time out at every stage to make sure that all the boys, including the less confident ones, were happy and knew what they were doing. We had an awesome day and Mark ensured that the games were varied and even arranged a “family v friends” finale, which was exactly what Jonny wanted. Excellent day out, would recommend it to anyone, generates conversation and memories that last forever! Bravo Mark, see you again!!”
Gareth D says: “Myself and 15 other mates have been to Bristol activity centre paintballing and wow what a day a great group of staff from Chris running the show and Ali leading the group helped greatly by Jacob and rich. All were very helpful and enthusiastic and made the day a brill experience thank you from all of us.”
Mia_pcox says: “Me and my other teenage female friends went for the day and loved it! The different games were all really enjoyable and the leaders (Rich and Chelsea) both brought lots of enthusiasm to each game; they were very helpful and funny. We will definitely be returning here again with more friends!!”

So much fun!We visited the Bristol Activity Centre for our corporate fun day and had a really good day. We were quite a large group, about 50 in total, and in advance of our visit the team helped me to plan the best approach to make sure everyone got the most out of the activities. They always responded quickly and were a pleasure to deal with. When we arrived we were greeted by a very friendly and enthusiastic team who did everything they could to make sure our day went smoothly. We did bubble football, axe & knife throwing, archery and clay pigeon shooting. All I heard was praise at how much fun everyone was having. I would highly recommend the activity centre, particularly for large groups. I’ll definitely be visiting again. Huge thanks to everyone there! Lucy Rogers, Saffery Champness
