Here's a tank taster that's a ton of fun, or rather, 18 tonnes of fun, to be exact! You'll get to drive a genuine ex-army tank that has seen active service. You'll be put in a squad of 8 on your arrival at the centre before being kitted out with the necessary protective wear and safety clothing. An ex-military instructor will give you a safety briefing and talk you through an introduction to the tank, then it'll be out and into the hull with the rest of your squad. You'll be given a short demonstration and then you will take it in turns to act as the commander and crew of this magnificent example of military might. You'll get about 15 minutes’ driving time over some really extreme terrain. Once your tour of duty has ended, you'll even get a commemorative certificate to show that you made the grade at tank driving.
