Everyone is familiar with the holy trinity of activities that the cliche Las Vegas bachelor party consists of. Copious consumption, gambling, and seeking out a gentlemen’s club or two find their way onto most bachelor party “to do” lists. But outside of the obvious things to do during a Vegas bachelor party, what are some other ideas that will help fill the time? After all, you’ll need something to do during the day.
We wanted to put together a compilation of Las Vegas bachelor party ideas that don’t involve bars, blackjack, or skin.
Las Vegas Bachelor Party Ideas
Rent a Suite Big Enough For The Whole Crew: There are numerous 2-bedroom and 3-bedroom suites offered by hotels on the Las Vegas Strip that could make for the perfect bachelor party accommodation. You don’t have to split up at the end of the night, instead, keep the party going. Note too that a few hotels offer bunk bed rooms that can sleep 4 without forcing guys to awkwardly share a bed.
Play a High-Quality Round of Golf: Look, your friend is most likely only going to get married once or twice. He, and the boys, deserve a memorable round of golf as part of your Las Vegas Bachelor Party. Our suggestion? Bite the bullet and play the Wynn Golf Club. No, green fees aren’t cheap, weighing in at a rate of $300 – $550 per person, but that includes Callaway loaner clubs, access to the 6,500 square foot practice green, and 6,722 yards of lush beauty designed by Tom Fazio. In addition to Wynn, there are numerous other golf courses near the Las Vegas Strip that span the price/quality spectrum.
Put Some Rounds Down Range: There are a number of indoor ranges in Vegas that allow you to fire an assortment of weapons. An alpha male activity can make for a great Vegas bachelor party activity. Better yet, take advantage of this current deal on Groupon that offers two distinct range packages which will allow your bachelor party crew to fire weapons like an AK47, Glock 9mm, and even a belt-fed machine gun.
Paintball: If non-lethal rounds are more your speed, you can battle the bachelor party crew at a number of paintball sites around town. One of the cheaper options near the Strip (a $20 Uber south of Mandalay Bay) is Combat Zone Paintball which is currently offering deals on Groupon. The base package includes equipment for a full day and 250 paintballs for one person priced at $39.98 (regularly $52.50). View all discounted paintball packages here.
Experience Extreme Speed: There are a number of options for driving fast, exotic cars in Vegas, which could make for a good bachelor party activity. Both Dream Racing Driving Experience and Exotics Racing give patrons the opportunity to jump behind the wheel of brands like Lamborghini, Porsche, and Mclaren at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Exotics Racing is currently offering a Groupon Deal (view the deal here) with 6 lap packages starting at $285 ($349 value).
Or, Go-Karts on Steroids: Pole Position, located a short Uber ride from Strip resorts is highly regarded by visitors, earning 4.5 out of 5 Google Review Stars. The crew can show up and race each other in several different formats in Go-Karts that have some zip, reaching speeds up to 45 mph. A great way to burn off the hangover, and get the competitive juices flowing. We suggest adding intrigue and gambling amongst yourselves on race outcomes. Notably, Pole Position is offering a number of deals on Groupon that will allow you to save on 3 race packages. See the Groupon deals here.
4 Wheeler Adventures in the Desert: Zip around the Mojave Desert on a Polaris RZR XP1000 on your choice of 3 different routes as part of the Zero1 Desert Adventures tour. Lunch is included and pricing for the 2-hour experience starts at $295 per person. Located less than a half-hour from the Strip, Zero1 Desert Adventures is nearby and doesn’t require prior ATV experience. You can book your excursion in advance here.
Experience the Thrill Rides on STRAT: Honestly, they are awesome. 3 rides that either dangle you off the edge of the 1,149-foot tall tower. While exhilarating, they are also relatively inexpensive. While access to the observation deck, plus two rides of your choice typically costs $34 directly with STRAT, they are currently offering a number of ride package deals here, on Groupon.
Jump Out of a Plane: If the thrill rides atop STRAT won’t provide an adequate adrenaline rush, take the bachelor party crew out to the desert and hop from a plane flying at 15,000 feet. Like other bachelor party activity ideas on the list, you shouldn’t pay full price. This Groupon deal allows you to either save $50 on a jump or take a tandem leap for $199 (normally $299).
Helicopter Excursion: Start your night in style and take the group on an aerial tour of the Las Vegas Strip for as little as $89. If you prefer to get away from the city, check out Grand Canyon helicopter tour options that start at $469 per person and increase as options are added. A popular add-on, test the bachelor party crew’s fear of heights on the glass-bottom Skywalk Odyssey which juts out over the Grand Canyon below. See all helicopter tour packages both for the Strip and Grand Canyon here.
See a Topless Revue: Just shy of strip club level raciness, topless revue shows do a nice job of turning up the heat without breaking the bank on tips, bottle service, and personal dances. For those that want to toe the line without actually hitting a strip club, check out our compilation of burlesque shows in Las Vegas ranked based on customer reviews.
Rent a Pool Cabana: Nothing aids in recovery after a late, long, boozy night then spending part of the next day relaxing by the pool. Renting a pool cabana will give your group a home base with guaranteed seating, a TV, waters, and a place to store your valuables as you relax. More on pool cabanas in Vegas here.
Hopefully, we were able to point you in the direction of some cool Las Vegas bachelor party itinerary ideas that don’t involve the obvious “drinking and gambling”, which we trust you’ll do plenty of anyway. Have a great time in Vegas!
