This exhilarating one-to-one tank driving experience really has it all! You’ll be able to drive three monstrous army vehicles – an Abbot Gun Tank, a Tracked Rapier Missile carrier and a FV 432 APC Tank! You’ll feel like a true army hero as you take control of these massive machines, learning the controls on flat terrain before tackling challenging mounds, dips and water troughs. With an experienced instructor by your side you’re sure to tame these tremendous beasts, and you may even get to try a ‘sheep-dip’ drive through water!
Upon arrival you will be met by your expert instructor, who will give you a safety briefing and teach you the basic controls before you are geared up in army kit. Then it’s straight out into the vehicles! During this experience you’ll be able to drive an 18 tonne FV432 APC Tank, a Tracked Rapier Missile Carrier and an Abbott Gun Tank! This is a one-to-one experience, and you will enjoy personal tuition with an expert instructor as you drive this monstrous vehicle. You’ll learn the controls on the flat terrain before facing the challenging mounds, Dips & water troughs, and - Scottish weather permitting – you’ll even get to try a 'sheep-dip' drive through water! You will spend approximately 45 minutes in each vehicle. After your experience you will be awarded a Certificate of Achievement to show off to friends and family! Spectators are welcome and they may ride in the tank with you or take photographs from an observation bunker in the centre of the course.
