Bear Grylls

Thrill seekers and adventure enthusiasts are going to be delighted when the new Bear Grylls Adventure is launched. Not for the faint-hearted, the site will include a high rope challenge, the tallest in Europe; so tall, in fact, that you’ll have to access it via a zip wire from a Chinook helicopter.

Closer to the ground, adventurers will be able to tackle activities such as indoor skydiving, scuba diving or climbing walls. You might want to stay in one of the available Birmingham serviced apartments, as there is far too much for one day here and setting up your own base camp is a wise idea.

Ice Age Attraction

Another new addition is the Ice Age Attraction at West Midlands Safari Park. Sabre-tooths, wooly mammoths and wooly rhinoceros are some of the creatures to be found here, alongside the 26 ft high fiery volcano. The attraction will also include life-sized models of some of the ancient plant life, some of which reaches 12 ft high!
