Big fun needs big vehicles, and this unforgettable experience gives you the chance to drive at least four monstrous Military Vehicles across 100 acres of seriously prepared tank courses, massive holes, banks and water splashes! You'll fire a 17th century Mortar and a Flintlock Musket, learn all about a range of modern weapons, try your hand at clay shooting and hone your survival skills in the woods. You'll also take control of incredible vehicles including an American Lance nuclear missile launcher - and the best driver at the end of the day gets to try balancing a 56 ton Chieftain Main Battle Tank on top of a family saloon car!
Set on 100 acres of Northamptonshire countryside, this incredible full day experience gives you the chance to drive at least four Military Vehicles across seriously prepared tank courses, massive holes, banks and water splashes. You’ll be able to take control of vehicles such as the Russian fully amphibious Turbo powered Grozdilka (the only vehicle of its kind in the UK), the 432 Armoured Personnel Carrier, the 6x6 skid steer Supacat and an American Lance nuclear missile launcher. What’s more, the best driver on the day gets to drive over a family saloon car in a massive 56 ton Chieftain Main Battle Tank!

Also included in the day is an hour in an armoury, where you’ll get to see and learn about hundreds of weapons from 17th century flintlock muskets and pistols right up to current day hardware AK47’s MP5’s and rocket propelled grenade launchers – with all your questions answered by an ex-British army sniper/mercenary. You’ll also spend an hour in the woods learning survival skills, try your hand at clay shooting with 12 bore shotguns and spend a fascinating hour with an 18th century Cohorn mortar crew, where you can try your hand at shooting flintlock muskets and being part of a mortar crew! All drivers will be supplied with camo overalls. Refreshments are included all day along with a very good hot lunch, sometimes themed!

This was a present for my 50th birthday. My beloved decided that it was time to re live my youth, having been in the Army from 1977-1983.
A day it certainly was we were there nine hours. Refreshments and a meal, I went for the sausages and ribs, are included. Spectators have a small fee to pay and most had the oportunity to join in some of the activities.
The staff were very friendly and helpfull, we were split into teams for the various activities and marked on certain of these the winner crushing an Alfa 156 with a Chieftain.
Our team, which included by chance a couple who live a couple of miles from us started off with driving. First in a FV432 APC then in a Russian Gvozdika SPG.
Then on to many more activities. If you want to see what have a look at the website.

Tank driving was what I was expecting but this day was so much more than just driving a tank! It was a real soldier experience from firing guns and mortars and stuff to SAS woodland combat! Great fun!
