What Can I Expect

Dare to go on a thrilling Bear Grylls Adventure! As the man himself says: 'When your fears are laid bare, you have to keep your nerve and dig deep'. And that's exactly what you'll be doing when you launch yourself into the activities on this fantastical adventure in Birmingham!

Costing millions to create, the Bear Grylls Adventure is totally different to any activity centre you'll have ever seen. Is it extreme? Yep it can be. Will you be scared? Quite possibly, but it's also an amazing experience and brilliant fun too.

You'll need to have your 'adventure ready' clothes on, a clear head and be raring to go for these water-based experiences. Your guide will lead your group through the tasks and challenges in the water, with a choice of snorkelling and diving on offer.

Opt for snorkelling and you'll explore Bear's snorkel cage for 20 minutes, meeting the marine wildlife. Expect lots of colourful and curious fish to come on by during this magical underwater adventure which is open to all from eight years old.

Pick the diving package and you'll be walking the underwater way, coming up close to Blacktip Reef Sharks, Cownose Rays, Nurse Sharks and stunning tropical fish too. No experience needed, you'll have a warm-up and safety session in the training pool first.

Up the adventure ante with a Challenge Pass upgrade for your snorkel or dive package. This Pass gives you access to one more activity of your choice, from climbing, shooting, axe throwing and archery. And don't forget, all Bear Grylls Adventure packages include unlimited access to the Royal Marines-inspired assault course!

No matter which Bear Grylls Adventure package you pick, it's going to be one seriously adventurous day out, filled with mentally and physically demanding challenges to triumph over. Time to escape the ordinary and achieve something epic.
