The Bear Grylls Adventure tips and tricks


Michelle says

"Buy pics and vids form your adventure"

(Shark dive) the lead diver with our group took videos and pictures and there are cameras around the tank which take pictures of each dive. From memory they were very reasonable to purchase.


Claire says

"The climbing routes are better for seasoned climbers. "

Climbing is good but better if you are experienced at climbing as they are real routes taken from actual climbs around the world.


Natalie says

"Trainers are best for the courses (and super comfy too) "

Wear trainers and sporty type clothes. They are pretty strict on footwear on the main assault course I.e no boots. When we went they wanted everyone in trainers. It’s a really good day. The food and drink is pretty reasonably priced for the NEC and so is the gift shop. You will have a great time.

What to expect at The Bear Grylls Adventure

Ever said “I could do that” watching Bear Grylls on telly? Now’s your chance

The unique Bear Grylls Adventure at The NEC Birmingham lets you walk the walk as well as talk the talk with nerve-testing activities like shark cage diving, archery, axe throwing, and Europe's tallest high ropes challenge which is 65ft in the air. Dizzy heights.

Experience the adrenaline rush of free fall at iFLY indoor skydiving, try your hand at target shooting with air pistols and rifles, and push your mind and body to the limit at an assault course designed by The Royal Marines. We recommend stretching beforehand.

If you want something that extra bit special, try the VIP dive experience. You spend double the time snorkeling in the tank (after hours too, very exclusive), there’ll be chance to feed the animals and you get an exclusive peek backstage.

Need to refuel on your visit? The Hub Café is the place to get treats like pizza, nachos, hot dogs and tasty veggie and gluten-free options. There’s also strong coffee if you need to perk up before another pulse-racing round of activities.

Save time when you’re there by completing your waivers online beforehand using the Adventure Ready Portal or get there a few minutes early to do it on the day.
