Overview

Declare war on boring walks in the countryside! This is an incredible opportunity to take control of an Abbot self-propelled gun, an FV432 armoured personnel carrier and a Chieftain main battle tank. The Chieftain weighs in at 55 tons and can crush a car like a Matchbox toy, so you should probably keep out of its way. You’re better off inside the tank, where your guide will show you how to control this most notorious of military vehicles. Some of the instructors have seen action in the Falklands and Gulf wars, so they are highly experienced and will be sure to have many a story to share. For a change of pace, you also have the chance to drive a Stormer Mobile Platform at the specially designed track to top off a fantastic day. At the end of the day you will leave with a certificate of achievement to commemorate the experience.

Everything about this experience was as expected. All the staff were brilliant and the whole experience was exactly what I expected and more. Highly recommended especially if you like to play with 'Big Boys Toys'! It was something I had always wanted to do and now I've done it. I'd like to do it again!

Wonderful day
01 September 2019
We bought this as presents for y husband, son, and son-in-law and made it family day out. It turned out to be one of the best family days ever. As spectators we had to pay £10 each which at the time I thought was a bit dear but turned out to be really cheap. The men had a whale of a time driving the tanks and armoured vehicles, even my husband who is 67 and very hard to please. The spectators all got to ride on top of the tanks, even the Chieftain tank while our other halves were driving it. Kev who had the job of making sure everything went well was fantastic with our grandsons and made the day even more special. If you want a great day out then book this.

Bought by my family for my 70th birthday in December. Booked for end of June. As the day grew closer I wondered whether I could get in and out of vehicles, manoeuvre and enjoy. My husband, 2 daughters and sons in law, 4 granddaughters (age 2,4,5 and 7) came to watch. What an incredible experience. Great staff - funny, kind, supportive and knowledgable. Great refreshments, especially the cakes. I had the most amazing day and enjoyed every moment. I think we'll be back for other family members to take part. £10 for a spectator was great too - opportunity to ride on vehicles, eat cake and support me. The granddaughters enjoyed the toys in the marquee. Thank you to all.
