My Bear Grylls Adventure - Can I Face my Fears and Do it?

My Bear Grylls Adventure -  
Can I Face my Fears and Do it?

I have some really exciting news this week. There's a brand new attraction opening in Birmingham this weekend and it's going to be huge! If you're a fan of Bear Grylls or doing things that are totally out of your comfort zone, then this place is going to be perfect for you.

The Bear Grylls Adventure can be located at the (N.E.C) National Exhibition Center, Halls, Marston Green, Birmingham B40 1PA. It's very close to the Train Station (Birmingham International) and easy to find by car too. It's a place I've visited many a time before.

This Sunday, in just 5 days time! I am going to be taking on the deep and diving into a big tank to get up close to over 1,000 underwater creatures incl. sharks and stingrays. I am so excited but also utterly terrified at the same time. I've never done anything like this before, so believe me when I say, I really don't know whether I'll have it in me or not to actually do this. I love the sea and all the amazing creatures in it but I've never really got that close before. I'm normally the one swimming in the sea, trying not to look down. I'm the one snorkeling but trying to avoid all the creatures and swimming away when they get too close. 

It's going to be a real challenge for me but I'm going to try and face my 'fishy fears' and tackle them all, head on. It's completely out of my comfort zone but I can't wait. Bring it on!

If the Dive wasn't exciting enough, I'm going to be taking on the Bear Grylls Base Camp to. The Base Camp will consist of 4 thrilling challenges in an 90 action-packed minutes:

BREAK OUT - Escape Room: 

Crack codes, solve puzzles and find your way out of the room.

TARGETS Archery:

You’ll need ultra-focus and precision for the targets ahead. Get a score to be proud of.


When all goes dark, you'll find your way out. When the walls are squeezing in, you will find your way through. When faced with challenge, you will keep your nerve.


Balance, jump, climb and scramble your way through the assault course against the clock. 

I'm so excited and hoping to show you all how amazing it is when I do it on Sunday.

Watch this space and do come back to see how I got on - here's hoping for good news.
