Guys Night Out! Ideas in Collin County
including Allen, Frisco, McKinney, and Plano
Looking for a testosterone-filled night with the guys--or just something to do that appeals to men of all occupations? Are you in charge of planning
a bachelor party and you want to keep it "clean" but lots of fun and memorable? (Hint: Most of these businesses will do something special for your
party or provide a private room.) We've rounded up some manly things to do for you within a 20-minute
drive of just about anywhere you live in Collin County.
Just because you're a family man doesn't mean there isn't something to do with the guys. Allen, Frisco, McKinney and Plano all offer great choices for
guys that do not require one iota of estrogen.
For a Diverse Group of Guys
Allen Bowl, Allen
This is the bowling alley that's been around for decades. Monday night is bargain night. Also has five coin-op pool tables for those that consider
themselves a pool shark.
1011 S. Greenville Avenue, Allen
Canyons Rock Climbing, Frisco
Because beginners and experienced climbers are welcomed here, it's a great opportunity to do something physical together that may be a little stretch
for some of the not-so-athletic in the group.
7164 Technology Drive, Frisco
Disc Golf, Allen
Said to have nine of the best Disc Golf holes in No. Texas. Bring your own discs!
745 S. Allen Heights Drive, Allen
Disc Golf, Frisco
Dash's Track Disc Golf Course is an 18-hole championship style disc golf course. Bring your own disc (frisbee), of course.
3335 Timber Ridge Drive, Frisco
Disc Golf, McKinney
Two courses to suit your fancy: Alex Clark Memorial Disc Golf Course
with 18 championship
style holes and the Towne Lake Disc Golf Course
. The latter considered by many to be one
of the best courses in No. Texas.
Fort Paintball, Parker
This is a real he-man thing to do together! Open Saturday and Sundays (and some holidays, like Labor Day).
4404 Dillehay Drive, Allen (Parker)
Frisco Gun Club, Frisco
Hey, cowboys, why not spend some time at the shooting range together? This country club/gun range is just the place to hang out together.
6565 Eldorado Parkway, Frisco
iFly Dallas, Frisco
While sky diving may be out of the comfort zone for most people, it is geared to both beginners and experts--as long they're healthy. (So probably not best
to bring your father-in-law if he has a heart condition.) Even the kids take on this challenge, so while it is an extraordinary evening event, it isn't unsafe.
8380 State Hwy 121, Frisco
Hard Knocks, Plano
Unlike your typical laser tag, this is indoor war! Missions take place in combat zones such as a warehouse or office cubicle. If planning a bachelor
party or you have several in your group, contact their group sales department for special pricing and missions.
8740 Ohio Drive, Plano
National Videogame Museum, Frisco
This is certainly NOT a "no-touch" museum; this museum's mission is to have as many video games available as possible for their guests to play! Some
game tokens are included with each admission ticket. 100,000 videogame consoles, games and artifacts from the past and present.
8004 North Dallas Parkway, Frisco
(inside the Frisco Discovery Center)
Pole Position Raceway, Frisco
Release those endorphins in a wild ten-minute ride around the track! This is an ideal activity if you've got guys that aren't athletic and you want
to do something out of the ordinary.
10550 John W. Elliott Drive, Frisco
Imagine a "gunfight" of laser tag with your buddies! Or, settle for some billiards or bowling. Great fun in an environment your wife will approve.
8789 Lebanon Road, Frisco
Top Golf, Allen
These folks insist you don't need to play golf to enjoy this game. What can enduce male-bonding more than shooting golf balls from your own bay,
eating guy food, and laughing together?
1500 Andrews Parkway, Allen
TUPPS Brewery, McKinney
Tours are offered Saturdays, and what guy wouldn't want to do a brewery tour--especially when it includes beer? Unique open atmosphere in an old cotton
mill with $5 beers. Open Weds-Fri evenings, Saturday 11am-10pm.
721 Anderson, McKinney
So you think you still have what it takes to run that hitter to home? You and the guys can find out!
505 Century Parkway, Allen
Dr. Pepper Star Centers
If the members of your group used to play hockey, and you have the equipment packed on a shelf at home, grab your gear and drop in for some stick time.
On the website, click "Schedules" and "Schedules" again; look for "Adult Drop-In."
Days vary based on location.
Various locations: Frisco
Edge Skate Park, Allen
Said to be the largest in the state of Texas, it features a concrete skate park, two roller-hockey rinks, BMX track and Visitor Center. No joke, park
officials consider this a high risk activity but protective gear is strongly recommended
200 St. Mary Drive, Allen
Frozen Ropes, McKinney
Well, you may not be able to get a real celebrity pitcher to toss you some balls, but you can rent a pro batter video pitching machine!
6161 County Road 124, McKinney
Go Ape Tree Top Adventure, Plano
Some athletic ability is good to get through the numerous rope ladders and 39 crossings which finishes with a zip line! It'll get your group out of
their comfort zone, but we're told a fear of heights shouldn't stop anyone as they can talk you through it!
5901 Los Rios Blvd, Plano
Hydrous Wake Park, Allen
While an inclination toward sports is a good thing going into this, there is a beginner area set apart from those who know what they're doing. Kick
your adrenaline into high gear here and have fun laughing at one another if you're all in the beginner catagory! It's also okay to just go watch and
decide if your group has the courage to go forth. Open year round.
