THE SEARCH is on for the UK’s oldest daredevil.

The Bear Grylls Adventure in Birmingham is searching for someone who has a thirst for adrenaline-fuelled activities despite their age.

The winning candidate will have the chance to visit the activity centre, next to the Birmingham NEC, and take part in adventures such as axe throwing, indoor sky diving, diving with sharks, and a 65-foot-high rope obstacle course.

They will also win the title of the UK’s oldest thrill-seeker.

Adventurer Bear Grylls said: “Adventure challenges and pushing yourself should know no age limit. That’s why it’s so inspiring to see individuals pushing themselves and defying expectations at The Bear Grylls Adventure, regardless of their age.

“If you think you know the country’s oldest daredevil who has a thirst for adventure and adrenaline, or someone older who is not afraid to dive with sharks or throw axes, then bring them along and put their determination to the test and apply.”

Amy Langham, General Manager at The Bear Grylls Adventure, added: “We’re delighted to announce our search for the UK’s oldest daredevil. We see such a range of guests visiting the attraction from young children to the older generation – who are still young at heart of course.

“We’re looking for anyone who thinks they could be the UK’s oldest daredevil to apply via the website before coming along to the attraction to take on a range of activities.

“We’re always encouraging our visitors to push themselves to the limit and bring out their inner daredevil, so we can’t wait to find out who thinks they’ve got what it takes.”
