GRIZZLY GAMES

grizzly-games-merch

Grizzly bears are powerful, top-of-the-food-chain predators, yet much of their diet consists of nuts, berries, fruit, leaves, and roots. Bears also eat other animals, from rodents to moose. Despite their impressive size, grizzlies have been clocked running at 30 miles an hour. That’s as fast as some of our turbo events, so you’ll need to act quick if you want to get in on the action.


2023 will kick off with our sixth roaring bear season, so expect to get your paws on some grrrreat grizzly prizes.

RATTLESNAKE OPEN

rattlesnake-merch

Rattlesnake fangs are continuously produced, which means there are always new fangs growing in behind their existing gnashers. They’re stealthy hunters. They lie in wait for their prey, then strike with their venomous fangs to immobilize it. Mess with these snakes at your peril!


The sixth Rattlesnake Open will be back with a bite in May next year for more action, bigger prizes, more slither, more rattle, more bite, more snake! Get ready to shake, rattle and roll.
