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!

Absolutely Outstanding Day I would highly recommend this to anyone, its a fantastic and action-packed day out! There are a whole bunch of different activities along with driving tanks like clay shooting, muskets, mortars and survival skills. Of course you also get to drive a socking great tank (technically a self-propelled gun in my case, but basically a tank) around a muddy field and blast through huge puddles with impunity! The whole day is very well organised and run, the food is great and there's lots of it and Nick, who runs the place, is very entertaining and great fun to talk to, along with having a bunch of instructors who are clearly loving every minute of it as well. If you're wondering about going with someone as a spectator and think it might be boring, it won't! You still get to ride on the tanks, learn about survival skills and weapons and watch a car get crushed into itty-bitty pieces at the end of the day! 26 April 2014

Best Driving Experience This certainly was an extremely well organised, thrill packed 9 hour day for myself and my son who was a spectator, which will be long remembered by us both. We were split into teams and ours started with firing a musket and a mortar, which was followed by driving a Daf Leyland lorry and the tracked Lance. An extremely interesting talk on hand weapons in the armoury was followed by a delicious lunch for us both. Afterwards a 432 took us to a helpful talk on self sufficiency in the wild and then we did clay pigeon shooting. This was followed by a drive of the 432 personnel carrier around a longer course than for the previous drives and a short ladder was needed to access the driver’s position, which added to the experience. Then came the highlight of the day, the chance to drive the biggest vehicle of the day, the Gvozdika, which was even more exciting than the other vehicles because of its sheer size and weight, especially when traversing the deep gulleys on the course. Another 432 took us back to base, where we learnt who had driven the best on each vehicle, and who was the best driver overall. We were lucky as he was in our team so we could sit on the Chieftain as he drove it over the Nissan Micra. It was well worth paying for my son to be a spectator as he was with me all day and was passenger in all the vehicles that I drove except for the Lance. It was a superb day and one that we would love to repeat sometime. 06 August 2011
