The scale of challenges that can be found at the Bear Grylls Adventure are truly mind blowing and our goal is simple: to help you to find the courage & tenacity to conquer some incredible adventure challenges and to leave us empowered and proud. As a team: we will never give up helping you to achieve the extraordinary.” Said Bear Grylls on the opening of the new center.

Opening day activities include:


Basecamp is a 90 minute all action experience which is included in all other Bear Grylls Adventure activities. It includes Archery, A Maze, Assault Course and Escape Room.


Get harnessed up for an indoor climbing experience like no other. Warm up by bouldering routes inspired by the giant formations of Fontainebleau (France) before taking on belay climbs which include the famous face of El Capitan (Yosemite, USA).

There are more than 20 different terrains and routes to choose from. They’re on different levels to test your limits, whatever they may be.

iFly Indoor Skydiving

Realise the adrenaline of flight in our indoor vertical wind tunnel where you will be thrown into free fall using leading wind speed technology and without the need for parachutes or planes. In our aircraft hangar pre-flight you’ll learn all the body positions and hand signals you need for freefall and your expert instructor will fly with you in the tunnel.

Diving & Snorkeling

Our expert diving team will train you before your adventure, so no previous diving experience is necessary. With newly mastered diving techniques and knowledge you’ll be ready to explore the sea bed in our purpose built dive environment.

Europe’s Tallest High Ropes Course

Zip slide from the Chinook helicopter then choose your route. Use strength and balance to navigate high above the ground. Once you’re in there’s no looking back – and only the brave look down.

Inspired by the famous military Tarzan course, there are 36 different challenges over 5 storeys on our confidence high ropes course. Zig zag across rolling beams, climb ladder bridges and cross snake steps over 20 metres above the ground. Buckle up for our most thrilling challenge.



“Test your limits as you take on some of the world’s most incredible mental and physical challenges inspired by Bear’s love of adventure. We’ll get you geared up and ready to climb, dive, fly, zip, leap, scramble and explore. Escape the ordinary and push yourself to achieve the remarkable at The Bear Grylls Adventure.”
