Find out if you’ve got what it takes to take control of an 18-tonne army tank with this unforgettable tank driving experience. Your heart will race as you step into this monstrous ex-military vehicle, and you’ll feel like a real army hero as you get geared up in army kit! You'll join a group of troops and will take turns to ride in the hull, act as crew and commander and – most importantly – each crew member will drive the tank for 15 exhilarating minutes! This is the closest you can get to the thrill of being a soldier without having to ride in to battle!
Upon arrival you will be met by your expert instructor, who will give you a safety briefing before you are kitted out in army gear. Then it’s straight out into a real 18 tonne army tank! Your experience will start with the opportunity to experience travelling in the hull with the rest of the troops. All tanks used are ex-military and have all seen active service - you will see the bullet holes for yourself! You will also have the chance to act as crew and commander during the experience, riding out of the hatch directly behind the driver before the moment you’ve been waiting for – your chance to drive this monstrous vehicle! You will drive the tank for approximately 15 minutes. After your experience you will be awarded a Certificate of Achievement. To show off to friends and family! You will be in a group of up to 8 participants who will all have the opportunity to drive.
