How about a Date with a Difference? If you’re hoping to catch up with old friends or meet new ones, start your social gatherings this summer on a Stagecoach bus.
If you’re looking for a fun way to spend the day, then mini golf should be high on your list. There are so many great themed courses, both indoor and outdoor, including Dinosaurs, Pirates and, our personal favourite, Junkyard. A little healthy competition is good for a relationship so brush up on your putting skills – winner buys dinner!
If your relationship is new, an Escape Room is a great choice of date. You can either choose to battle it out as a couple, or team up with your coupley friends and work together to escape. It’s a real test of cooperation, listening and reasoning so it’s a perfect way to find out if your relationship is built to last. Survive the Escape Room and you can survive most things! There is a number of Escape rooms across the areas we operate in so why not jump on a Stagecoach to get there.
