The Bear Grylls Adventure IFLY

Get ready for unforgettable fun as you challenge your brain, body and reflexes with incredible activities inspired by Bear’s love of adventure. We’ll get you fully briefed, geared up and ready to climb, dive, fly, zip, leap, scramble and explore. Escape the ordinary and experience the extraordinary at The Bear Grylls Adventure.

Welcome to The Bear Grylls Adventure, where you Climb, Dive, Fly and more. Open all year round at the NEC Birmingham, this incredible attraction offers action-packed experiences you can share with your friends and family.


Feel the sensation of free falling at 12,000ft! Get your adrenaline pumping in our indoor wind tunnel and experience the equivalent free fall time of three sky dives.

No plane, no parachute, no jumpin!: Find your balance mid-air with our skilled instructors at your side. Enter the flight chamber with courage as you master the skills of free fall.

Weightless adventure. Learn all the positions and signals in our aircraft hangar before stepping into the wind tunnel. In there, a minute can feel like a like a lifetime. Be bold, trust your instincts and enjoy the rush twice.
