Diving with sharks – Bear Grylls Adventure Park

A theme park inspired by British traveller Edward “Bear” Grylls is being built at the National Exhibition Centre complex, near Birmingham. The £20m development will offer four activities – climbing, indoor skydiving, scuba diving and a rope park and will open later in 2018!

Those planning to visit Bear Grylls Adventure can certainly expect some unique attractions. After all, with Grylls himself in the name, adrenaline and extreme experiences are guaranteed. This makes it all the more exciting that scuba diving is on the menu at the Birmingham NEC.

The park will open to its first guests as early as autumn 2018 and we can already expect a spectacular success and a huge turnout. The unique investment is sure to find a crowd of people willing to test themselves in the challenges prepared in collaboration with the hero of the survival series we could watch on Discovery World.

This does not mean, however, that Bear Grylls Adventure will lack space for more recreational users. According to the announcements concerning the diving part of the facility, also people with little or no experience will find something for themselves.

It is already known that attractions will include a snoorklining section with a giant megalodon jaw that you can swim through, coral reefs overgrowing the rock world, and a flooded maze of rooms simulating wreck diving.

In turn, among the living inhabitants of the park we will meet an impressive set of inhabitants of the deep. Among the menagerie we will meet blackfin reef sharks, great arotrons, dwarf stingrays, royal nephrites, scoter cornets, Kashmir snappers, guineafowl puffers (anyone know the Polish name for these blowfish?) and sucking barbel.

[blockquote style=”2″]”Diving, is another amazing adventure for our guests to experience and really allows us to provide another amazing dimension of attraction. Even if guests are not diving, they can get a glimpse through the giant observation window.” – extols the whole thing James Thomas, Park Manager[/blockquote].

From every dive in the park, a percentage of the money will be donated to the UK’s leading shark conservation charity, the Shark Trust. It also supports the Shark Log science project to collect information about sharks around the world.

[blockquote style=”2″]”It’s great to partner with The Bear Grylls Adventure, on this new project. Engaging in active pursuits is what education about the underwater world should be about. At the Shark Trust we are very passionate about finding new ways to engage people in shark conservation and protection around the world. We have a long history of working with different aquariums. Sites like this can have a really positive impact on shark conservation through quality education. We are very excited about this new venture,” said Paul Cox, director of the Shark Trust.[/blockquote]

[blockquote style=”2″]”I can’t wait for guests to immerse themselves in this unique underwater world. We are proud to partner with the Shark Trust to highlight the importance of shark conservation, educate and enable our guests to engage with and learn about these majestic creatures.” – Bear Grylls stated. The park will open in autumn 2018, while tickets will go on sale from 1 August[/blockquote].
