Overview

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!

A great experience
27 September 2020
It was easy enough to book the experience, we are based in Kent so mad3 a weekend trip to go to Lutterworth. Directions were clear and the tank and sign by the road made sure you didn’t miss the turning for the venue. Joe was our instructor and we were quickly into the tank after a short safety talk. He drove a lap around the short circuit to get us into the experience. Then it was my turn to drive whilst my wife was a passenger (tip wrap up warm as it was 13 degrees abs windy for the passenger, less so for the driver) Joe was clear with the instructions to me on driving and I soon felt comfortable driving. Then drove with the hatch down with only a narrow slot which was quite disorientating but great. Overall a great thrill and the hour went by in a flash.

The tank driving experience was amazing, thoroughly enjoyed it and would do it again. However, to have to pay £6 for my wife to sit in a shed or stand outside to watch what turned out to be about 10 minutes of us driving tanks, (we were in another area out of sight for the bulk of the driving), was excessive. Drinks were available but to have to pay £1.50 for a glass of fruit squash was a bit steep. There was an offer to buy a disc of photos and as I went with my brother, instead of it being £20 for a disc of photos showing us both, we were expected to pay £30. We didn't buy the disc - again we considered it too expensive. If it had only been £20 we may have considered it, but for goodness sake, these discs are as cheap as chips these days so £10 is plenty to have to pay. Shame really as it did put a bit of a blight on the day but would not take away from the excellent instructors and the experience in general.
