Are you thinking of booking a voucher for Armourgeddon, but want to hear what other people think of their experience? Read this week's blog to see some of the visitor reviews of Armourgeddon we have received on Trip Advisor and directly on our Armourgeddon website. 

The visitors we have to Armourgeddon who have either bought themselves as a group, as an individual or have been gifted a voucher have an amazing time. The smiles that walk out of the hanger after their tank driving should be bottled! 'But you would say that!' I hear you cynics call... So we thought, this week, we would share with you some of the comments our visitors have made about their experiences of tank driving, tank paintball battle and even as a spectator visiting the museum. 

Trip Advisor

We don’t always get direct feedback from our tank experience visitors when they are here on site, but often hear their thoughts on Trip Advisor.

We are delighted to have 93% 5* or Excellent ratings on Trip Advisor. With 278 visitors rating us Excellent (262) or Very Good (16) out of the total of 283 reviews. That leaves only 5 people who have not rated us at these top levels. Take a look at the full list on the Trip Advisor site. We are proud to have been awarded the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for the past three years. 

Here are some of the comments that we have received on Trip Advisor:

Excellent Experience

This was bought for me as a present and it was a great present to receive. You get to drive an APC, armoured personnel carrier. It is a bit of a beast but good fun to drive. It is quite basic to drive but you do not want it complicated. The instructor I had was excellent and guided me with the driving and controls very well. It is a great feeling to drive such a heavy piece of machinery and thoroughly enjoyed it. The APC is a bit of a beast to drive. I thoroughly recommend this and was buzzing when over. You have control for most of the drive and is worth the money. 
Afterwards, there is the tank museum to visit which is also very good.

50th Birthday Treat

Just returned from Armourgeddon and what a fantastic day we had. Dan my instructor was patient and very understanding. The tank itself was easy to drive and my wife daughter and her boyfriend came as passengers. What a laugh from start to finish. Highly recommended.


Went here for a friend’s stag do and the guys were lovely! A lot of fun had by everyone and the battle was just hilarious!! Never done tank driving before but would do it again!!!

Boys and Their Toys!

Visited museum on the Friday and went back on the Monday for Dad's & Lad's experience - my husband and son are still smiling and that was back in September whilst on holiday! Great little museum packed to the gunnels with vehicles and a bargain at £5 entry. Boys had an awesome time on the experience - Alex the instructor was fantastic - and even I thorough enjoyed the experience on the sideline with the video! Would highly recommend it

A great experience and brilliant fun! 

Three of us went for the tank paintball package and it really good fun. Dan our instructor was very friendly and particularly patient with my 79-year-old Dad, taking time to make sure he got to try everything, even though his mobility is limited. We all had a go at driving, aiming and firing, and then we decided on our roles, before going into the paintball battle with another team. The whole experience was fantastic and highly recommended - a very professional well-run operation!

Dads and Lads Experience

Working on clearing a few things off my things to do before I’m 40 list and my partner bought me a Dads and Lads experience for my birthday. (they make it clear Mum’s and daughters are just as welcome)
Easy enough to find, short distance off the M1. Managed to book using the voucher with about a week’s notice.
Booked in for 5.00 we arrived about 3.30 and had a look around the museum and had a drink before being called up.
Instructor was excellent, very friendly, knowledgeable and gave me and my slightly nervous 13-year-old plenty of confidence.
Our experience gave us a lap up top, both a go at firing the air cannon and then I got two laps driving, one with a view and one inside as per combat situations. Even got to reverse park at the end.
Option to buy photos, £20 for 72 photos in our case, seemed reasonable and there wasn’t the really hard sell you get in some places.

We also have many visitors write back to us directly after they have been on their experience day. These are usually left directly on our website, but here is a bit of what they have said about us. 98 out of the latest 100 reviews have been for 5 stars! The other two reviews were 4 stars. That’s 100% rating of Excellent or Very Good! The a read of these: 

Had fantastic time, the entire set up was excellent, the instruction first rate and the experience top notch. very highly recommended.

An excellent afternoon spent on the Tank Paintball Battle at Armourgeddon. Very informative briefing given by Wayne-our tank commander. Driving with all hatches closed was certainly something different. With the battle done (and won) spent time in the museum, there is a vast array of vehicles down to the smaller personal equipment, well worth seeing. A well-organised venue with very friendly and welcoming staff. Will be checking out their other activities.

What I can tell you is I haven’t had that much fun in many years. Instructor may have been Stuart, was very patient and gave me great help. Even though I have shrunk with age so the Drs. Tell me, I am still almost 6ft, so having seen inside several of your vehicles I can see why I didn’t follow up my initial interest as a career when I was younger. But a great time and I would certainly recommend it for a great day out.

Absolutely fantastic day. We chose the tank battle and loved it, we all got a chance to drive the tank as well as loading and firing the canon in the heat of battle! Our guide Alex made the day, he was really enthusiastic throughout the day as well as being happy to answer all our questions about the tanks. 10/10 would definitely recommend and absolutely come back if there was another track to drive on or a different challenge to complete in the tanks :) Thank you, guys!

Excellent tuition, amazing experience, I highly recommend Armourgeddon. Can’t wait to do it all again. Never thought I would have so much fun at 5 miles an hour!! Anna

I was given a tank drive experience as a leaving present when I retired. Beforehand, I was unsure of what to expect but I can honestly say that it was an incredible experience and I would certainly do it again. The staff were all friendly and helpful and obviously enjoy what they do. The museum is also very interesting with so much packed into a relatively small area.

I had my second 50th birthday present of a Tank driving experience and yet again it was fantastic. This is a fabulous gift to give someone at a brilliant place.

I booked the one hour tank drive for my Dad\'s 80th birthday present. In comparison to other \"driving experiences\" this was good value for money. My Dad thoroughly enjoyed driving the tank, especially as he had his four grandchildren in with him as passengers. The instructions and directions given after booking were good. We also purchased a disc of photos, taken during his hour, as an additional present which cost £20 and will be a nice momento. He also enjoyed the military vehicle museum on site which is included in the package. I would definitely recommend this activity.

Do you need any other convincing?? Take a look at the hundreds of reviews on our website. But the best option would be just to try it yourself! Book a voucher online, or call the team in the office on 01858 880239 to talk through your options. You will have a blast!
