Every big kid has had this fantasy at some point. Now you can turn those dreams into reality as you take a real tank out for a spin with this awesome tank driving experience in Leicestershire. You’ll be kitted up in army overalls before your instructor helps you get used to the unique operating controls of this 17 ton monster. Drive with the hatch up first to get the hang of commanding the FV432 tank, as your instructor guides you around a World War II bombing range. Then, you feel confident, go for the full experience as you sit right inside, using only the periscope to navigate. Just try not to blow anything up - remember, it’s not actually a toy!

My husband gave me this as a gift for my 60th birthday and we loved our time in the tank, me as driver and him as passenger. It was a very hot day and we wore overalls and helmet but it was worth it for the experience. Our 'guide' was Nick and he was great too, talking me through everything and being encouraging of my driving skills. There's no need to be a car driver to enjoy this as the only things to avoid on your journey in the tank are passing cows which seem totally oblivious of the machinery around them! We had the tank to ourselves too which was great. Take your own camera but when you can't take pictures there is a resident photographer who will capture shots of you when you least expect it and you can then buy the disc. There were 60 photos on my CD. Brilliant time thank you
What would you improve for next time? Larger size of overalls please

The recipient was celebrating his 60th birthday and was grinning like a Cheshire cat. Great staff, great thrill, great time was had by both of us. Well worth the extra charge to be a passenger in the tank and enjoy the experience with him

Location: Bourne, Lincs Age: 55-64 Bought For Son Occasion: Birthday
Thought it would be another of those creep round follow the leader things. Well I was wrong the guy who took us round made sure we were able to enjoy ourselves. We did 3 laps plus the first with the instructor, was allowed to open up and able to share. Went with an open mined came away chuffed to bits. An old man with his 2 Sons going to war. What more could you want.
What would you improve for next time? Sort the farm track out as some wouldn't like taking the Car through the holes or getting it dirty.

Location: Runcorn Cheshire Age: 55-64 Bought For Wife Occasion: Birthday
Absolutely brilliant day.For £10 extra a friend can go in the tank with you, .After being kitted out your given some instructions then off (with your instructor in the tank too).You were video's going round and this could be bought later, but the really friendly staff gave us ample time to take pictures too.There was a cafe and a museum to look around..seating outside so you can stay and watch others.We made a full weekend stay down there,capacity was always something my husband had wanted to do. BRILLIANT EXPERIENCE, FUN DAY.WOULD RECOMMEND
What would you improve for next time? Thought the video was a bit pricey on top, but apart from that nothing.
