You’ll discover that big fun needs big vehicles with this unforgettable experience. You’ll drive at least three monstrous Military Vehicles - including the fully amphibious Turbo powered Grozdilka - across 100 acres of seriously prepared tank courses, massive holes, banks and water splashes! You'll also get to see an extensive range of weapons in the armoury, with all your questions answered by an ex-military expert! What’s more, 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 half day experience gives you the chance to drive at least three 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 and the 6x6 skid steer Supacat. 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 the extensive 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. Refreshments are included all day along.

Bought this experience for my husband as a Christmas present. The staff at Tanks a Lot made you feel very welcome and it was well supervised. I went as a spectator and we both thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. 21 July 2011
