Peter Pan flies high at the Bear Grylls Adventure

He can fly! Thanks to Birmingham’s Bear Grylls Adventure, Peter Pan was given the opportunity to soar high in the sky without the use of pixie dust.

Cast members from Birmingham Hippodrome’s spectacular pantomime, Peter Pan took to the iFly wind tunnel which simulates the experience of freefalling at 12,000 feet before plunging out the rear of a landed helicopter down an exhilarating zipline.
