Escape From Scorpion Island
Escape From Scorpion Island

Escape From Scorpion Island returns for series two of the most nail-biting game show on earth!



Episode 1

 

Six brave adventurers make a spectacular arrival on to Scorpion Island – leaping from a plane 4,000 metres above the earth and falling at speeds of up to 200 kph.

 

Only a tiny fraction of the world's adult population dare to experience a tandem skydive… how will the children fare?

 

Once on the ground the two teams are marooned on the exotic and sinister Scorpion Island thousands of miles from school, friends and family.

 

Over the next three weeks the adventurers will compete to be the first to conquer the island - and win the race to escape from it!

 

What the teams don't know is that they are not alone! The Island has taken 10 prisoners and is holding them captive in a secret camp deep in the jungle. These captives will become human prizes in the battle to escape from the Island.

 

This is the second series of the adrenalin-fuelled real-life adventure game for children, in which teams compete in daring challenges in order to win the competition.

 

The challenges the children undertake in the series are aimed at providing them with a once-in-a-lifetime experience, allowing them to stretch themselves both physically and mentally, within considered perimeters, following the most stringent health and safety procedures.

 

Escape From Scorpion Island brings an outdoor adventure experience to the children, the likes of which they may never have dreamed possible. How will the adventurers cope? Will all of them make it through the first day on Scorpion Island? Does the Island have any more terrifying surprises in store?

 

Of course it does – and you can find out for yourself only on CBBC on BBC Two at 9am on Sunday 28 September!
