Bear Grylls has been promoting the Great British staycation at his Bear Grylls Adventure park at the NEC, Birmingham. With UK lockdown restrictions easing, the attraction will be offering up to 50% off selected activities all summer long, and Bear Grylls visited to promote the #Bearcation offer and give guests a welcome start to the summer.
Bear took some time to surprise some of the attraction’s thrill-seeking guests, joining a group as they took on the Indoor Climb experience and even posing alongside his Madame Tussauds mannequin, which acts as a popular selfie spot. Bear also dipped into the Snorkel Cage amongst almost 1,000 underwater creatures who call the tropical tank home, including Black Tip Reef Sharks, Nurse Sharks and Cownose Rays.
Visitors can tackle Europe’s tallest High Ropes, feel the rush of freefall in the iFLY Indoor Skydiving wind tunnel or try their hand at beating Bear Grylls’ record time on the Royal Marines-inspired Assault Course, to which each visitor has unlimited access during their visit.
Bear Grylls said
“You don’t have to go to the furthest mountain range or the deepest sea anymore, we’ve brought it all under one roof in Birmingham! It’s all about bringing that spirit of endeavour into one place. This is the UK’s ultimate adventure destination where people can experience so many of the world’s most exciting challenges.”
Recent surveys conducted by the Bear Grylls Adventure found that 77% of Brits found that lockdown made them want to get out and experience more excitement, and 70% valued the time spent with family and friends the most from a holiday break. The Bear Grylls Adventure’s #Bearcation ticket offer is set to make this the most action-packed summer holiday ever for those looking for adventure right on their doorstep, with a third of those surveyed saying they’d favour an adventure holiday most if given a choice.
