What Can I Expect

The Bear Grylls Adventure iFLY - go skydiving indoors at this brilliant adventure centre at Birmingham NEC! Each and every one of the adrenaline-fuelled activities offered at this centre has been inspired by Bear's very own adventures. And nothing gets more thrilling than experiencing freefall!

The iFLY wind tunnel has come to Birmingham. It's an impressive set up, with a huge fan creating massive amounts of lift in the vertical wind tunnel. The force of the wind is such that it'll keep you balanced in mid air. No planes, no parachutes, no secret wires - just the wind speed keeping you up there.

Bear himself is always rather partial to a bit of freefall and we think you'll love it too. With Bear Grylls’s iFLY you'll have two flights in the wind tunnel, which give you the equivalent freefalling time of three actual parachute jumps from 12,000ft. That's a lot.

Your initial welcome and briefing happens in the aircraft hangar. It will be led by a professional jump instructor who will teach you how to enter the wind tunnel, the body positions to adopt and the hand signals to use to communicate with the instructors.

Then it's time. You will make your way to the Bear Grylls wind tunnel. Are you ready to iFLY? That moment before you take the leap of faith, try and channel your inner Bear. 'Be bold, trust your instincts' he'd say. This is pure freefall and that requires balance, self-belief and courage.

These vouchers are for one person to go on two flights. If you take to it like the proverbial duck to water, you might even be able to try some bodyflight tricks, which involves fancy moves in the stream of air - it's actually a sport in its own right!

Pssst: Upgrade to the Bear Grylls iFLY with Challenge Pass voucher and you get to do the iFLY and your pick of adventure activity, with free assault course access too!
