Not just a tank driving experience, you will get to learn all about a multitude of weapons and woodland survival skills. Running from 9am to 6.30pm, there is a lot to fit in! You’ll drive four different military vehicles over the 100 acre, specially designed course, including the Russian Amphibious Turbo Powered Grozdilka, of which this is the only one in the UK, a 432 Armoured Personnel Carrier, a 6x6 Skid Steer Supacat and an awesome, American Lance Nuclear Missile Launcher. What’s more, the person deemed to be the best driver will also get the chance to try and balance a Chieftain Battle Tank on top of a family saloon! You’ll also get an hour in the armoury learning about weapons from the 17th century to the modern day AK47’s as well as trying your hand at clay pigeon shooting, firing a Flintlock Musket and learning woodland survival skills.

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

wonderful gift I bought this as a present for my husband and went as a spectator. Went on 31st March - so just back.. Can recommend - it was a fabulous day with plenty of driving for him. It will be an experience remembered for a long time! Staff were all friendly and helpful. 02 April 2012
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
