    Sorry if this is in the wrong section..
    I'm turning 17 in Aug and would like to do something fun and exciting. I had paintballing / go-karting in mind but prices are ridiculously expensive.

    Could you guys suggest some fun / exciting ideas? Day at a waterpark or something?

    Oh and serious answers please

    You said it yourself.

    But seriously, camping or something maybe? Go on a 'boys weekend' and take alcohol, a one-use bbq thing and sit around a fire doing manly things.

    How so? It's everyone for themself, you don't pay for them all. Treat them to dinner if you want but don't expect yourself to foot the entire bill. I did paintballing, didn't come to more than £50-60 or so my end.

    Oh.
    It's just I've seen alot of the old Quaser laser buildings around and they have been shut down a while. That's both in London and one in Bournemouth too.

    But hey if its still going then cool.
    Had some good childhood memories there.

    It's like paintballing except its for kids and it doesn't hurt if you get shot (in the balls)

    We all have a child inside us





    I just realised how much of a loser it makes me sound :/ I'm not, I promise. I just never went to laser quest that much
