Learn how to drive 17 tons of steel with this great tank driving experience and live out all those childhood fantasies. Your experienced instructor will quickly help you learn all the basics while driving around the course with the hatches open and your head out so you can see where you're going. Once you're got to grips with driving the beast and you're feeling confident, try driving with only your periscopes for vision and the hatches closed for the ultimate thrill!
Arrive at the venue at the appointed time and be greeted by your friendly and experienced instructor. First up is a safety briefing, followed by an overview of the tank and its controls. Then you'll spend some time getting used to piloting the craft, before your first test – driving the tank over a World War II bombing range! If you feel confident enough, you can repeat the course under ‘real' conditions, with the hatches down and only your periscope to guide you! Your experience lasts for approximately 45 minutes.

Tank Driving Bought as a Christmas present from my husband. Arrived feeling nervous but excited. Paid for my son to be a passenger whilst I drove the beast, the day was very hot 21 c (June 22) and the terrain dusty but this added to the thrill. What can I say other than fun fun fun :) Have a look in the museum before you leave. 23 June 2014
Terrific tank Tank driving experience was amazing. Excellent instructor who made you feel at ease and allowed you to get the most out of it. The track was challenging and you even get to reverse which I did not realise tanks could do! Photo DVD at end was excellent and very reasonably priced. 14 June 2014
Awesome Had a great tank driving experience, excellent instructor and passengers had a good time too. 31 May 2014
Awesome experience I enjoyed the informal but instructive atmosphere and the way that it was all designed to give the visitor as much enjoyment as possible - from the 'welcome' through to the end of the visit the facilities were fulsome and appropriate i.e. clear road signs to the venue, snacks, drinks, viewing area for family/friends and the availability of personal, professional photos taken of my beaming, smiling face in the Tank! 04 May 2014
