Tank Paintball Battle


(190 customer reviews)

Please note, prices excludes a 5% online booking fee.

Crews consist of 3 people per tank and the price above is per person.

In this action-packed activity, your instructor will transform your team into an elite tank crew, greasing the gears of paintball warfare. Not only will you each learn how to drive a tank, but you will also take on an opposing tank, firing giant paintballs from the cannon!

Upon arrival, you will all be kitted out with tank suits (if needed) and helmets to get you ready for combat. Following your safety briefing and a short history lesson about the FV432 tank, you will take it in turns to drive 1 lap of our track. At first, you will drive with the driver’s hatch open, giving you the chance to become accustomed to the track and the controls. Then, your instructor will close the hatch so that you can practise driving in battle conditions, using only the periscope to see the track.

Once your nerves have settled, it’s time for some target practice. Master the art of aiming the 40mm cannon fitted in the turret of the tank and then test your speed and accuracy in the loader’s position.

After discussing your battle tactics, it’s time to get the adrenalin pumping and make your crew proud, taking on the enemy in a Tank Paintball Battle! Who will drive? Who will load? Who will aim and fire? By far our most popular activity, Armourgeddon is the only location worldwide to run Tank Paintball Battles.

    My brother and I did the Tank Paintball Battle and had a fantastic time. It was great to learn how to drive and operate the tank. The museum was also very interesting. Thanks for a great experience!

  2. Nathan

    Good fun with good knowledgable people. Museum defiantly with viewing before you go for the ride.

  3. Alison Redfern

    We had a great couple of hours watching our children drive a tank & have a paintball battle. They thoroughly enjoyed it. Highly recommend this activity. All the staff were friendly & fun. Good value for money too.

  5. Tyler Bedford

    had a wonderful morning, the staff were helpful and approachable, the experience was worth every penny!

  6. Simon Damant

    Easy to find location, really friendly staff, misses was a bit worried to begin with but the instructor Mick soon laid that to rest. He explained everything really well and soon had her driving and firing. Totally enjoyed the day and strongly recommend it, great fun day out.

  7. Martin Clarke

    Excellent experience with Dan. Sadly our shooter (Matt) should have gone to Specsavers as we lost our battle. Really good fun and unique.

  8. Ethan Johnson

    Came here for my stag and what can I say, it was amazing. Easily one of the best days out and definitely made memories to cherish with my friends and family.

  9. The Stephensons

    Me and my boyfriend did this while on holiday and had an amazing time. Such a great opportunity and a lot of fun. My boyfriend enjoyed finding out about the tank itself and looking at all the little details inside before the experience had even started, and as someone who has no particular interest in tanks, I still had a lot of fun. Both of us have said we would love to do it again.

    The sci-fi technology tackling malarial mosquitos – Environmental campaigner Liz O’Neill doesn’t mince her words about gene drives – the next generation of genetic modification (GM) technology

  11. Derek Baillie

    We booked this as part of our works Christmas do. There was 10 of us in total and we all had an amazing day. The staff were so friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome. The guys were very knowledgeable and were a great laugh but made our safety a priority. It was great fun and we would definitely do it again. Cant recommend them enough

  12. Andrew

    Booked this for a team building activity for work, great fun was had by all! The location, activity, and hosts were all amazing and I would 100% recommend this to anyone & everyone!

  13. Mark Pullen

    I was bought a voucher for my birthday and we went as a group the instructor was friendly and knowledgeable about the vehicles and their history. They were surprisingly easy to drive and we had a great day. The paintball element was great – trying to race into a firing position and get a hit on target. Afterwards we took some time to take a look round the museum which has a good and varied collection of exhibits. All in all well worth doing and I would be happy to return for another go. Recommended.

  14. Arthie Samueli

    Excellent, was a really fun and cool experience

  15. Gordon Williams

    Amazing experience. Our instructor (Matt) explained everything perfectly and was patient. Driving the tank was a thoroughly enjoyable activity, as was the loading and aiming. A fantastic day and I have no hesitation recommending this experience, I mean why wouldn’t you want to drive an Armoured Fighting Vehicle

  16. Sam

    Really enjoyed our day out in the tank. Had a great instructor and had a lot of fun. Highly recommend trying the tank experience

  17. Chris sexton

    I bought a voucher for tank paintball for Mine and my sons birthdays. We had an excellent day, the tank commander was friendly and knowledgable giving us all the details about the tank and it???s service, answering any questions we had. we even won our tank battle !! Would recommend 100%

  18. Roy Priest

    Excellent. My son had a 30th birthday treat he’ll never forget. Our instructor Mick was very helpful. Museum also very good. Armourgeddon quickly and without fuss re-sent a memory stick containing photos as some had been missed originally. They even covered cost of special delivery. Very efficient setup from start to finish.

  19. Jess

    We absolutely loved our tank driving and paintball experience. Alex was great and put a lot of effort in to our time to make it really informative and fun. Would definitely recommend!

  20. Hazel

    My husband and 2 sons recently did this activity and thoroughly enjoyed it . Good fun ,Joe instructor was great Museum very informative Ideal for all age groups

  21. Claire Payne

    Nick our instructor made the experience a very good one. Driving the tank was great. I highly recommend Armourgeddon

  22. Craig

    Amazing day out with the boys. Such a unique experience to drive and FIRE a tank. Joel and the guys were all really helpful and friendly, and it made a great afternoon

  23. Andy Odger

    Brilliant fun and Nick our instructor was very clear and helpful. Gave good advice and wicked humour highly recommended

  24. Peter Thorp

    It was a fun and informative day thank you. Sadly, you don’t seem to cater for people with big heads but few places do, and I certainly didn’t let effect my experience negatively. The instructor was a good guy and very patient and clear with his instructions. Thank you.

  25. Matteo Cavaricci

    Fantastic experience, I would recommend this to anybody. Our instructor for the day, Zach, was very kind and available to answer our questions.

  26. carl hughes

    What a great time. The whole team helped out as there was only two of us. Thanks especially to Alex, our tank commander, for doing everything he could to ensure we had a brilliant experience.

  27. Simonski

    Delayed 60th Birthday present from beloved wife and daughter. They paid for myself and two friends, Prosecutor, Green Beret and Heavy Mechanic. We loved it. Great people, great experience. Wished it had been longer for the money. Thank you Armourgeddon. And do an overnighter in Market Harborough. Excellent place to eat drink and be merry because tomorrow….

  29. Gill keogh

    Bought this driving paint ball experience for my husband as a retirement gift, I also included our son andvson in law, and paid extra on the day for grandson to join them, they had a totally fabulous time and enjoyed every minute. I’d recommend this to anyone as a different gift idea,

  30. Stephen Bonner

    We had a totally awesome day for my sons birthday. Thanks to everyone at Armourgeddon. They loved the tank battle and the staff were just great and so helpful even when we stayed slightly past closing time having cake. Why not have a pizza oven on site as well to sell more hot food? Great day thanks. Will be back for more fun family get together when lockdown rules all gone

  31. Andy Hanlon

    Brilliant experience for me and my grandsons. Would highly recommend.

  32. Nicki Matthews

    The staff were brilliant, super helpful and everyone had a great day. We would highly recommend both the activites and the museum. Thank you!

  33. Dawn Morrow

    Best day out ever, staff and activities awesome xxx

  34. Eddie Welsh

    Absolute quality Think they should combine the tanks with the painting guns

  35. Stuart Ainsworth

    Bought as a family Christmas present and ended up at Armourgeddon on Fathers??? Day. Easy to find and very well organised. Clear social distancing and simple but enforced safety. Booked for the tank paintball, opportunity to drive a ???tank??? and then fire paintballs at your opponents in a drive and fire battle. Fun from start to finish, Wayne and Will our instructors were excellent and ensured we got the most from the day. There is also a really good military vehicle museum covering WW2 and the Cold War – arrive early so you can appreciate the collection. A really good day out – thank you Armourgeddon!

  36. Paul kelly

    This is my 3rd time here its a great day out I will be returning i highly recommend this to anybody fabulous.

  37. Georgette

    We had a fabulous time. I purchased this for my Dad’s 70th and it was brilliant fun. Both our instructors were so helpful and knowledgable and big shout out to Chris who was training!

  38. Sarah SONGHURST

    My to sons 17 & 21 had a brilliant time and the whole experience was 10 times better than they could have imagined they were buzzing from it. Small downside was when i booked it was suggested to make time to look at the museum on site and that spectators were welcome it was going to cost ??8 per person so and extra ??24 was steep and there was no concession for the grandparents who came as it was their gift to the boys.I think the cost needs to be mentioned out of curtsy. Managers note : There is a small admission fee for spectator/museum which is mentioned on our website and in all booking confirmations. We shall review our publications with a view of ensuring it is obvious to customers. Thank you

  39. Mark Withrington

    I had this bought for my 60th I added my wife to join me we loved every single moment and would recommend to others

  40. Matthew

    A great event. Well managed, very exciting and huge fun,

  41. Jenny Whittingham

    Really great experience – thanks Alex! We didn’t win but hey ho!

  42. Sally-Ann Brown

    I came with my Son for Tank Paintballing, we had a fantastic time, our instructor Richard was a pleasure too have, he made the experience more enjoyable. Definitely something we will do again.

  43. Shaun Larvin

    Excellent day out totally unique experience highly recommend.

  44. Nigel Willis

    Really enjoyed the experience would definitely recommend it. Only negative was the photos I purchased after, 52 photos with 60% more or less the same so ??35 was a rip off !

  45. Paul Moisy

    Had a fantastic day driving the tank, loading and being the gunner. Was lucky enough to have a tank with my 2 sons, made it even more special. Have some great photo’s of the day as well. Thanks Armourgeddon

  46. Deborah Matthews

    Hi, I bought this activity for my husbands 60th birthday. My husband and both our sons took part in the tank paintball battle. They had a great time. Their instructor on the day was Alex and they all agreed he did a great job. Lots of banter !!! They had plenty of time driving the tank and the experience was very well organised. Would thoroughly recommend.

  47. Matthew Gilligan

    A brilliant and unique day out! The staff were excellent and the museum was very interesting. Overall, it was excellent value for money and I would thoroughly reccomend it to anyone!

  48. Dawn Moss

    We had a fantastic day , to celebrate Marks 50th Birthday and Shelley???s Birthday , the staff were wonderful and looked after us very well , we had Alex and Zak looking after myself and Mark and Will and Tom were looking after Shelley and Neil our friends , we had a great tank battle and the photos look great. We will definitely be back again as it was a most enjoyable day and would highly recommend it to everyone.

  49. Lee James

    Such an experience. Honestly the best day out I???ve ever had. They are very accommodating and lovely. The tank driving was incredible. Definitely coming back to do it again . Great family day out.

  50. Bjorn Graham

    Gareth and the Boys run a wild adrenaline rush of an event, knowledgeable and competitive if you go in a big group, you will have so much fun you’ll be buzzing for days! Thanks again to Gareth and the well oiled machine (The team, not just the tanks!) 🙂

  51. Neema Holder

    Hi, we booked on the Tank Battle for our family of four. Will was a fantastic instructor and he made the activity lots of fun for our two boys. Thanks Will! Very well executed. Fun and informative. Would recommend.

  52. Leigh Rogers

    I took two different young men of whom wanted to do this since his young days. The other young man called Luke lacked confidence in himself and had a withdrawn life as such. Armourgeddon gave both lads different abilities and did them the world of good.. We shall be returning shortly for another session. Many thanks Leigh

  53. Kenny

    We had a top time with Armourgeddon driving an AFV and operating the gun and turret was a great experience. We had to rearrange our original booking due to Covid restrictions and this was handled easily and quickly. Staff communicated well, were very friendly and informative about the process and vehicles. I???d recommend the experience for anyone with an interest in experiencing a little of what these vehicles can do.

  54. Ruth

    We had a great day. My son had always wanted to drive a tank, so we thought it made an ideal 18th birthday present. Having the added fun of a tank battle made the day even more memorable. The staff were informative regarding the history and use of the tank that we were using and was really hot on health and safety of the driver & passengers. As a passenger, I got the chance to aim and fire the gun and participate in the paintball battle, so I was please I had decided to tag along. We were able to enjoy the museum while we waited for our time slot. I highly recommend this as a great day out.

  55. Matt Hollingworth

    An absolutely awesome day covid safe and brilliant organisation. Alex was a very enthusiastic and engaging instructor who got us into shape before battle and made everything so easy to understand. We’ll definitely be back again.

  56. Julia Charles

    We attended for my friends birthday and we had a great time shooting large guns and beating the MEN!! Thanks again Julia and Steph

  57. Paul Robinson

    Great day out.We really enjoyed the experience and all of us want to do it again. It was a bit of a pain having to wear a mask, glasses steaming up but it was still worth doing. Our guides were excellent at explaining everything and organising our experience. We bought the photos which were fantastic quality. Hopefully when things get back to normal we will have an even better experience.

  58. Andy and Cameron

    What can we say really great fun! Gareth our instructor was very good and the whole experience went really smoothly despite the current Covid restrictions. Museum is also excellent and worth a good look round. If you are thinking of booking, do it you won???t be disappointed.

  59. Jonathan

    We had a great day out for my Stepfather???s birthday visiting the collection at the museum and driving and shooting from a tank! The controls were easy to use and the battle was well planned (considering one of our party was ex-military and the other knew nothing!) Would definitely recommend to anyone for an afternoon out or gift experience!

  60. Vicki Reeve

    Amazing day! So much fun. Great instructors, an opportunity to try everything from driving to shooting. We had a hilarious day, I would highly recommend! Tank you Gareth and the team @ Armourgeddon!!!

  61. Glyn Cunliffe

    I thought that we would only be allowed to sit next to a driver. How wrong I was. Within a few minutes of getting into the tank I was driving it at what seemed like considerable speed across a ploughed field. Brilliant!!

  62. Raouf Mooraby

    Staff were great, the tank paint balling experience wasn???t quite as good as expecting

  63. Sarah Smart

    Thank you for giving us such a memorable experience. It was great that as a passenger I could take part in the paintball battle with my 2 friends who were driving. The instructor was very welcoming and informative. Everything was very relaxed and suitable for all ages/abilities.

  64. Brian Clifford

    The instructor was knowledgeable and helpful. Would have liked to have more than one circuit drive but a good event

  65. Joanne Tallis

    My son came with his friends as a birthday treat, he had the time of his life, looking to rebook ASAP! At 21 they can be hard to buy presents for, so glad I came across this site!

  66. Bell

    Excellent experience, highly recommended, the museum is also very good!!

  67. Darren

    Absolutely the best day the staff very knowledgeable the tank paintball experience superb and the museum was an eye opener would definitely do it again

  68. Adrian shipman

    Tank paint ball was great fun very well run and managed the museum was well laid out and the coffee are was clean and well spaced out thanks for a fun day

  69. Sarah Fletcher

    Fantastic day !! So much fun and the instructors (Will and Mick) were great fun and really informative.

  70. Rian

    The tank paint balling was amazing. It was great to learn how to drive the tank around the course as well as learning to fire the paint ball gun at the targets. Our instructor (Charles) was brilliant in explaining how to drive and shoot in the tank as well as prepping us for the main battle. The main battle was great as well. Going up against another team while broadsiding each other was great. I would highly recommend this to anyone that is thinking about driving or shooting in a tank.

  71. Kay longley

    This was booked for my hubby, son and father in law. All said they had an amazing time and would love to do it again sometime, great photos also

  72. Louise Williams

    Great morning spent. Well organised and welcoming team. Had a great time and will be sure to come again

  73. Helen Cliff

    My son really enjoyed this, his 21st birthday present! As a spectator I thought the whole thing was well organised, relaxed and informative. The only thing missing was some commentary for those watching proceedings. All in all a fantastic afternoon, would highly recommend.

  74. Paul

    Awesome experience amazing staff and very good response to the current covid 19 everything cleaned before use felt very safe would recommend it to anyone. Loved it so much think I???m going to book with a group of friends next year

  75. Paul Gerrish

    A great afternoon for all the family ! We’ve already recommended it to several neighbours/friends and given you a glowing review on Tripadvisor. We really hope it help get more business your way.

  76. Keith Cannon

    Absolutely great day out well set up and very covid 19 friendly staff really made us welcome and the instructors were great fun and were very encouraging and explained everything can’t recommend this enough was a fab day out and my boy will never forget his 18th birthday well done armageddon

  77. Ian

  78. Darrell Adams

    What a great time we had,It was to ce!erbrate a 60 birthday, we all got to drive the tank work out who was going to drive and shot the gun. Tank paintballing was so much fun and we won. Would do it all again and the birthday boy really enjoyed it too. Hope the tank got fixed, we are still talking about which one did it and the photos on the ubs stick finished off a really good time thanks every

  79. Andy

    The Armageddon ‘Tank Battle’ was great fun. The instruction was easy to follow and which made for a really good experience and the time allowed was perfect.

  80. Gemma Reid

    40th birthday celebrations!!! And the very best time, always wanted to drive a tank and (not being competitive at all) paintball war with my friends was awesome. The instructors were brilliant and such a laugh. Just the very best experience, will be coming again. Thank you for making an old gals day xxx

  81. Remi

    Absolutely brilliant , we came from France just for this experience and all I want is to come back with more friends ! C?????tait g??nial merci !

  82. Gabriel Gachet

    We came from France specially for a tank paintball battle and we do not regret the trip! Very friendly staff and unforgettable experience !!

  83. Stacey Belbin

    Absolutely brilliant! Loved every minute of it, feel sorry for the instructor who had to put up with me being very over enthusiastic- bad news is he???s gonna have to put up with me again next year as it???s gonna be a storm of a stag do surprise for my friend! Absolutely awesome, just didn???t want it to end, also wish we could have blown up one of the cows as well as that would have been soooo cool! Maybe next time 🙂

  84. Paul Wood

    Brilliant day. Loved every minute of the paint Ball battle. Our instructor Alex was great. Best bit was watching the pain all explode on the oppositions tank, – and we won which made it even better. The organisation is very good.

  85. Michael F

    FUN FUN FUN!!! Loved it! I booked this for my Dads 70th, he loved it too. Now thinking of booking up again for a lads day out. Instructor were brilliant and really knew their stuff.

  86. Simon Taylor

    Brilliant day. Interesting museum. Great instructor (Alex) who made the experience really enjoyable with his enthusiasm and knowledge. Well worth doing again.

  87. Tony Scott

    This was bought for me as a birthday present and I had a brilliant time. The instructors were friendly and very helpful, and our team was made up of three individuals but he spent enough time with each of us to make sure we all had a really enjoyable day. I was also very surprised to see so many tanks all warming up as there must have been about 8 or 10 out on the field that day. I was also impressed with the museum, it wasn’t the largest I’ve visited but it had some really interesting exhibits with a lot laid out in a diorama format.

  88. Jacqui Homer

    Brilliant day, Brilliant Hosts. Such Fun, would definitely come back. Highly recommended AAAAA

  89. Adam Jary

    Great day out, and a very different experience from day to day life, great fun, and loved driving the tank like I owned it, and rattling my mates around in the back. 🙂

  90. Kim Gunning

    I had never considered driving a tank. However, I was given a voucher for my birthday and decided to book the tank paintballing experience. I was nervous initially as I don’t know one end of a tank from the other! What a great day I had. Dave the trainer was fantastic. He explained the health and safety rules and took us through a guided tour of the tank. I sat in the turret for the first lap and then I actually drove it, firstly with the lid up and then with the lid down. We then had a practice with the paintballs. We then had a break to talk tactics for the forthcoming battle. This also gave us the chance to eye up the opposition. For the battle itself I was in charge of aiming. I was pretty poor as we only scored 5 hits out of 12! It was exciting though and Dave???s shouting added to the experience! On finishing, photos were available to buy which are a great way to re-live the experience at home. I met 2 lovely people who shared the tank with me and my husband was able to watch from the viewing area. Thank you to Dave for ensuring that I had a day that I wont forget.

  91. Edward R

    Great experience, pretty good price too. I would like to see a tank or apc that kids and adults could get in/on. Of course with obligatory disclaimers…. Nice display of vehicals in museum too.

  92. Finbar Willis

    I received a birthday present of an Armourgeddon gift voucher. I chatted to family and friends and five others decided to join me. So on a bright Sunday morning we took off from home and arrived in plenty of time for our slot. The staff were welcoming, and after signing our disclaimers we had time to walk around the museum. I was able to tell war y stories of my time repairing the “pigs” and “sarrycans” in the 70/80s. Off then to get into some NBC suits to “keep clean” and then into our AVF for play time. I was in with my son and daughter and we each took a turn in driving then the loader and aiming positions. We all did well and decided who was to take what roll in the up coming shoot out against my brothers AFV. Driving parallel to each other, we fired 12 rounds each from 6 stands. 10 hits, Yea, have we won? Nope, Bruv had scored 10 also. So with honers even, we debused, changed clothing and went to see our photos which are of a very high quality. Back home for a pub dinner and to put the feet up. And so to bed for a happy weekend warrior. Cheers Team Armourgeddon :o)

  93. Peter

    We came here for a Stag Do and it did not disappoint! The staff were incredibly helpful and did not hesitate to answer the multitude of questions before the day on the phone. We were allowed to bring in items to shoot (a Stag prank we setup) and the staff all played along, claiming to know nothing of the items mentioned. Having the drive around was a great experience; even through the weather got very wet during that time it, in my opinion, made the experience feel more authentic. While you wait your turn you get to enjoy the ride from the top of the tank. The actual drive was both different and expected; pedal for going but levers for the tracks. The only way to describe it is to try it yourself! As for the battle, having the other tank turn its turret towards you from the view of the tiny hole was both terrifying and exhilarating; just watch out if you’re in the back operating and firing if the driver puts his foot down! An amazing experience and will most likely go again.

  94. Catriona Wallace0

    Brilliant day out – the museum is well worth spending time in so don’t just go to drive a tank x

  95. Demi

    Absolutely brilliant activity and definitely worth the money! All the team were very friendly and fuelled our competitive spirit. Would definitely recommend this, even if you???re not a tank fan. So much fun, made even better by winning the battle


    Amazing good clean fun……paintballing tank battles ! The real army tankies that do this for a living have my total respect it is incredibly hot cramped noisey claustrophobic and – with all the lids down – virtually blind. And in a real battle there are a multitude of weapon systems aiming at you that will ensure your chances of going home in one piece for tea & medals are slightly less than good. This, all too brief, experience rams home just how brave ( mad !) real army tankies have to be to serve their country. PS an excellent pub for food is The Bell Inn, Gumley.

  97. Stuart MCGovern

    Really enjoyed my time on the tanks, Will was a very good instructor on driving the tank and turret, would recommend this to anyone, the tank battle at the end was a good way to finish off the event, the only negative was the price of the pictures, would of had to buy all of the pics but only liked 1 of the photos and you cannot buy solo photos,

  98. Thomas

    We had a lot of fun. All 4 of us. We will definitely recommend others to visit you !

  99. Steven F

    Excellent day out, our instructor Ben was very professional and knowledgeable, and most of all helpful, showing us how to get the most from the experience. He also added real spice to the completion for the paintball challenge. Thank you.

  100. Rita Blake

    Bought a tank paintballing trip for my son-in-law’s 40th birthday. He and his friend had a wonderful time and the rain made it even better, sliding around in the mud. The museum is something you should be proud of according to him and well worth a visit at a very reasonable entry fee.

  101. Darren Trench

    What can i say what an adrenaline rush this experience was… You start off practicing your driving, aiming and loading with people youve never met then you choose theirs and your strengths for the various positions in the tank. I ended up driver and we were up against another tank moving stopping firing and wow after twelve shots at another tank we had scored twelve out of twelve and boy what a buzz. Well done to Charles out instructor and tank commander you made us into a great team. Thanks again for a great day.

  102. Michael Hall

    Great day, really enjoyable, our coach, Dan was very friendly and knowledgeable, he made sure everybody got the most out of the day and took the time to explain everything clearly, would highly recommend for old and young.

  103. Rod Easter

    Marvellous myself and 2 sons had a great time. We were TOP TANK!!! Sighting grid was poor and the breach seal crude but could not fault the organisation. This was our 2nd time will be back for more

  104. Harrison

    Amazing time friendly staff amazing gift shop 10 out of 10 already planning on going back!!!

  105. Barry Pate

    A great day out. We had Alex as our instructor and what a great guy he is. After we all had a turn at driving, targeting and loading we had a short break to plan the battle tactics. In the battle that followed we got 8 strikes out of 12 shots, so well done our team. There is also the museum with a Sherman and other AFVs. Highly recommended.

  106. Ryan Bubbins

    Excellent location, great facilities and the staff were brilliant.

  107. John Cozens

    Brilliant day, love tanks and have always wanted to drive one so was very excited when got this for my 50th from the wife and kids. The day lived up to my expectations and more. Every safety issue was highlighted by our instructor ???James??? and can???t praise him enough. James explained everything really well, was patient and had a great Sense of humour. Only complaint is from my wife as I didn???t shut up about Armageddon the whole 2 and half hrs journey home lol. Thank you guys for one of my best days ever

  108. Andy Dennett

    Amazing day out with our group! Sorry we broke one of the tanks – but at least we can say we ruined Marlene!!

  109. Simon

    Great afternoon with a few old friends – driving the tanks and doing a tank battle. Would definitely recommend.

    Brilliant day out, fantastic experience for everyone. Staff are brilliant and the museum is packed with loads of vehicles. Well worth a visit!

  111. Dave Angell

    Did the tank paintball battle, Charles was our instructor and was great, we had a brilliant time! Would recommend.

  112. Marcin Waszak

    Worth every penny. Instructor, Matt was very patient and a real laugh.

  113. Chris Walker

    We had a brilliant time on the Tank Paintball Battle. The instructor was easy to get on with, friendly, knowledgable and a great instructor. Fantastic Morning out before returning back to work, not that we got much done, as we spent the rest of the day talking about the great time we had, had.

  114. Gina

    We really enjoyed all aspects of the morning. Was great fun. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Would really recommend.

  115. Vivienne Edwards

    Had an absolutely fantastic day, it was well received by all the guys, definitely recommend it, great value for money and the museum its great. Thank you, your staff are brilliant!!

  116. Deborah

    Had the most fantastic day! We came for a stag do, did the Tank Paintball Battles, as well as air rifle shooting and archery. The instructors were clear, friendly, and enthusiastic, and it was a thrilling experience to drive the tanks and learn how to load, aim, and fire the gun. The staff were extremely helpful throughout the booking process, responding quickly and thoroughly to all my questions. Everyone had an amazing time, I highly recommend Armourgeddon for a great day out!

  117. Glyn Kippax

    Fantastic day out and all 3 of us thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

  118. Carol Crosbie

    Fantastic experience for a special birthday treat. Thoroughly enjoyed by all. The staff were attentive and friendly and the photos were of good quality to remember our day. the spectators enjoyed the museum too. Would highly recommend.

  119. Glen Oxman

    Probably the best Fathers day present I have ever had! Connor was a great instructor, the rest of the staff were very friendly and professional. Everyone gets a go at all the aspects of the battle from driving, loading and firing. The museum itself has some real gems if you’re into tanks like I am, well worth a look. The only criticism I have is the photos are ??20 and supplied on a disk. I would of paid to have them emailed to me (cheaper?) as I don’t have the facility to use a disk anymore. But all in all a great experience and I can fully recommend it! Glen

  120. John Ansty

    Accompanied by my Daughter and Son, as well as my Grandson, we took the Tank experience on 3.11.18.Our Armourgeddon rep. was Cameron.I have to admit I was rather hesitant about the day as my Grandson is only nine years old…BUT..i had no worries at all once Cameron took over. The guy was simply brilliant. Without exaggeration he made our day. He was so patient, and encouraged my Grandson who was understandably nervous about the whole experience and helped him throughout the entire two hours we were engaged on the 432. He was VERY professional while at the same time putting us all at ease and ensuring we had a great time. My Grandson loved every second of it all. In this age of take your money and goodbye it was a pleasure to meet someone so committed in helping us all to have a great experience. Many thanks Armourgeddon. We will come back in the new year and do it again. As an ex Tanky myself from a Family of ex Soldiers I appreciated his efforts on behalf of my Family members. From a personal point of view i really enjoyed talking to the owner of the Mark 9 Chieftain of which I served on as a gunner in the Blues and Royals in Germany in the seventies. It made my day. Many thanks for a special Family occasion. I would give six stars if i could. Thank you.

  121. Ursula grum

    A brilliant gift from great friends to mark leaaving work after 4 decades. A great experience and a great tutor. Marvellous fun. And I outpaint balled my sister

  122. Lee

    Absolutely brilliant day, great fun driving, even better fun shooting at the other tank in the battle, highly recommend it to all. Our instructor Josh was excellent and made it great fun for all of us.

  123. Paul obradovic

    What a brilliant day highly recommend thanks lads

  124. Ian Hanselman

    Weather rather wet but a good day out. Thoroughly enjoyed by all. Instructor was very informative.

  125. William Dodd


  126. Fiona

    Took my son and 2 mates for his 18th Birthday. They loved the Tank Paintball! All had a fantastic time. Very well organised, friendly, professional and great fun. We???d all recommend this. My 13 year old son has already decided it???s what he wants to do when he???s 18!!

  127. Samuel Fensom

    An absolute blast! Staff are pretty awesome people, easy to get along and have a laugh with. Incredibly fun, especially the driving which I was a bit nervous about at first but surprised how easy it is with the great instruction of the staff here. This is something I look forward to doing again, this will remain a high light of this year I’m sure. Can’t recommend more.

  128. Richard Sinden

    Fantastic experience and many thanks to all the staff for such a great day! The tanks were amazing to drive and had fun loading and firing the gun at targets and during the tank to tank battle! 10/10!

  129. Louise Davies

    Great experience, all staff were friendly and the museum is underestimated

  130. Marinus

    Very good day out. The instructor was very knowledgeable and the tanks were proper kit.

  131. Stephen Plummer

    Brilliant day out. highly recommend

  132. Chris

    Really good day. Looked after very well by Joel who made the experience even better. Would definitely recommend to friends!

  133. Jan

    A young boy’s dream – driving tanks and shooting at your colleagues. Great fun and a true experience! Very lifely coaching from the Armourgeddon team made it feel very real. Also the museum at Armourgeddon site was worth visiting. Nice!

  134. Kevin Omahoney

    It was a well organised and an enjoyable experience.Alex was our instructor,he was friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic.We visited the museum afterwards and it is well laid out and interesting.It is well worth a visit.

  135. stuart

    a great day had by all, well worth the visit

  136. Adrian White

    Good day, I would like to have seen my son driving it for longer. I believe an area where the vehicle can be opened up a bit would improve the experience, other than that, friendly team and a good all round day

  137. Mike Murphy

    Had a great time , and enjoyed it all. Would recommend it to everyone. Good value for money as we were track for well over an hour and a half.

  138. Debbie maynard

    Fantastic recommend to all my friends,and work colleagues

  139. greg dickens

    a fun time. a little more ‘battle’ time would have been appreciated. otherwise, a fun diversion….

  140. Lauren

    Bought the tank paintball battle voucher for my boyfriend who loves tanks and all things military. Very impressed with the staff when we arrived, my boyfriend loved the entire experience and couldn???t rate it highly enough ! He is determined to return in the future. The only thing I was disappointed with was as a spectator you had a limited view of the field they were on. And I think there should be better photograph options too. As you could only buy all the photos taken for ??20. But my boyfriend did the experience with 2 strangers so I didn???t want to buy the entire disk. It would have made a nice momentum of the day to be able to buy a small photo/keyring of just my boyfriend. Or just buy one singular photo of the amount taken. Maybe this is something to implement for the future? But otherwise, very impressed and so was my boyfriend!

  141. Jonathan Parsons

    As the management team of a well known motorcycle company, tanks were a little outside of our comfort zone, but we had a great afternoon, felt well looked after by the team and enjoyed a frantic battle allowing us to take out all of our frustrations on each other in a safe environment – thanks very much!

  142. Alec George

    This is a fantastic day out and experience big shout out to our instructor Chris who was a blast to be in the tank with. Thumbs up would visit again.

  143. Hwo Lam

    Who wouldn’t want operate a tank! You get to drive, load and fire rounds in a tank!! The time just flies by when you’re involved the operation of the vehicle. A way to play paintball without getting hurt unless you hit whilst yourself moving around the tight spaces. At worst you’ll get mud on your footwear.

  144. Ryan

    Great experience! Would thoroughly recommend. Staff are great too. Matt was a great instructor

  145. Andrew DARLOW

    A great experience, with the added bonus of the Military Museum. Far more tanks in use than I was expecting and good instructors/staff made this something I would highly recommend.

  146. Annika Fagerstrom

    Great day out thoroughly enjoyed it. Museum was fab as well.

  147. Alan Glew

    Hi at armageddon, we had a great time yesterday and the instructors were brilliant, even the weather was good., it was a great experience and I would like to do it again sometime, we all thought the museum was brilliant, thanks again for a great day out.

  148. Steve Hill

    Excellent and well run activity. Nice museum too. Would recommend simply for the experience of what its like to work in these machines. Was expecting a more free form tank battle but fully understand why it is done this way given the damage you could do with these tanks.

  149. Michael Lee

    Absolute Blast! Would highly recommend!! We did the tank paintball battle as a group of three and were all in the same tank. You take it in turns to be in each of the positions (Driver/Loader/Aimer) and have a practice at each. Once you have all had a go you move into the battle part of it and shoot large paintballs at another tank around a course!! A huge amount of fun at a really good price. Our instructor Chris was brilliant. Will Definitely be doing it again and would highly recommend.

  150. Bill Levett

    I’m very happy to write a review. I’ve done quite a few experiences (paragliding, off road driving) and this was really up there with the best. It lived up to and exceeded our expectations. We had an enthusiastic instructor (Callum) who did a great job in briefing us. He gave us a potted history of the vehicle and how and where the army has used it. We enjoyed the training in all three roles. It feels great romping round the track in a 15 ton tracked military vehicle with the engine roaring. The battle scenario was well thought through to maximise the enjoyment whilst keeping us under competitive time pressure at all times, adrenaline pumping. We all really enjoyed it. Winner stayed on so we got a second battle although this doesn’t always happen apparently. Just do it!!

  151. Simon Waddilove

    Had a fantastic time at armourgeddon I can’t give enough praise to staff I met while I was there what great team they make you feel so welcome. Worth every penny if anyone has the chance oh my god don’t hesitate get it booked you won’t regret it. I will definitely go again. Great day guys. Thank you all.

  152. Mark Aston

    Fun day out. Great experience driving the tank and paintball battle and great instruction from Dan. Highly recommended experience.

  153. Emma

    Fantastic day out, really loved driving the tanks. Alex was very enthusiastic and made sure everyone got involved. I only have 1 dispointment and that’s we were not expecting to have to share our experience with another group of people so when it came to purchasing photos I only wanted the one image that had me and my partner on it and was told I couldn’t purchase individual images. I paid the ??20 for the lot and now have pictures of people I don’t know so I’m unable to display them around my home. That being said the day was fantastic and I had loads of fun.

  154. John Andrews

    Would be nice if the loader also was able to see through periscope. I am an ex tankie apart from the above comment all off my party had a great time.

  155. Andy Robins

    Great experience. You instructor Richard was first class. Both my wife and myself had a great time. Many Thanks

  156. Hector Maclean

    Brilliant day, fantastic Father???s Day gift which I shared with my wife and daughter. Great instructor and experience, really fun

  157. Jonathan Butler

    We came last Saturday to celebrate a birthday. Great venue and museum, Joel was brilliant so thanks to him and we had a lot of fun. If there was anything I would suggest, it would be that for the money, the tank battle ought to be longer. 12 shots was not really enough. Just as you are about getting the hang of it, the experience was over. But otherwise, it was a fantastic day. Thanks

  158. Victoria

    Very pleased. Really good attraction for all 🙂

  159. Jon Messing

    Great experience! We did the tank paintball battles so got three battles i.e. one in each position. Highly recommend this option as it’s only ??30 more than one battle and gives you three times the fun! Was worried that “gun loader” would be the boring job but was actually very enjoyable!

  160. Robert Sharman

    Excellent experience. Had a great time. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Instructor was very good and informative. Will definitely recommend the experience.

  161. Olegs Fedotovs mrs ALITA Moore

    it was a brilliant day out,we all enjoyed it so much it was run in a very friendly way and it maked everything so enjoyable and the museum was gt too thank you for a lovely day out and hope to see you all again very soon

  162. Neetu Sharma

    It was a present for my son and he had the best experience!!! Especially driving and my daughter went in as a passenger and she did the shooting! It???s was amazing and the guys there were very helpful and lovely. Would definitely recomend it!!! Thank you!!


    Thanks for a great time. Only one slight criticism, a complete lap of driving the tank in both the open view and closed view would have been better. Thanks again for a great time.

  164. Olivia Marshall

    Absolutely brilliant. I bought this experience for my dad but of the day I was able to ride as passenger! Matt was such a great instructor and made it really fun! The paintball battle was nerve racking but amazing. It really helps when the crew are so friendly! I would recommend this experience so much! Defiantly would go again! Also the museum on site is really good and my 4 year old niece was in her elements looking at all the tanks and playing with the gadgets. Overall it was a fantastic experience – not fault at all! Thank-you again!

  165. Richard Ullah

    My 2 sons and I had a great time. the event took about 2 hours but the actual battle only took about 15 mins. The instructor was very good and explained everything. Only downside was we didn’t know that my wife had to pay ??6 for a visitor. Otherwise would recommend it. They even had a museum to go through.

  166. Romeo Castillo Jr

    Me and the boys had a blast driving and shooting the tanks, as well as having some “friendly” competition with each other. The staff were very helpful and informative and the overall day was enjoyed by all in my group. Highly recommended!

  167. Lesley

    I bought the paintball experience for my partner for his birthday. He loved every minute of his experience. I rode in the back as a passenger & our instructor Alex let me shoot some paintballs too which was good fun. All in all a very enjoyable & fun couple of hours.

  168. Paul Snowball

    Excellent day, staff were very friendly and the experience was very enjoyable and great fun.

  169. Melody Saunders

    A fantastic day that my dad, sister and I will always remember and we all wholeheartedly recommend. I particularly liked how everyone had the opportunity to drive, aim and load/shoot. Friendly and professional staff put us at ease and the photographs were great value for money.

  170. Tara Milis

    Bought the day out for my hubby but was asked when we got there if I would like to ride along? I did, it was great fun. Really wished I had known in advance that was an option as I was wearing a dress would love to go agian i

  171. Torquil Boyd

    great day out and we all enjoyed it our guide was great , charming and helpful. BUT You are missing out on so many opportunities such as drone filming ( health and safety fears easily overcome) also food and drink opportunities…”The Blitz Burger” “The Wizz bang bang ” ‘Lord Kitcheners Kitchen” , museum had interesting exhibits but dirty and covered in dust ( even had the auction lot numbers still on the side) no showbiz about it , audio visual explanations , sound fx ,you tube videos telling people about the tanks ( ive cut hundreds in my time ) . None of this is expensive . You have a captive audience in between tanks and all you have JENGA on the tables ??? raise your game you would not regret it . Happy to advise

  172. Martin King

    It was just great, was grinning ear to ear as i was going around, and the tank battle was really exciting

  173. Bruce Valentine

    Excellent day out, really good value for money and great fun during the battle. Richard’s instruction obviously worked as we scored 11 out of 12 direct hits.

  174. Gary

    My wife bought the present as a Christmas present and as she joined me for the day she became a passenger who also thoroughly enjoyed it even though she couldn’t drive she enjoyed being able to take part and look out of one of the turrets plus fire some paint balls at the targets. I for one enjoyed it the most by having the chance to drive it in and out of the tank seat and really enjoyed the battle where we definitely won 9 to 8.

  175. Nyomi

    Was an amazing experience . Great fun. Just wish we had more time competing in the battle.

  176. Stuart Smedley

    As the best man I organised this for the stag. We were a group of 6 so had 2 tanks of 3 in each. It was such good fun driving around the track before it was time for the battle! Somehow it was a draw at 11 out of 12 hits each although I???m pretty sure I got all mine on target! Would definitely recommend the tank paintball as well as the museum afterwards.

  177. Mr Philip Tate

    Brilliant experience. Staff were very efficient and helpful. A fun day out and I truest enjoyed the experience. I had a fantastic time

  178. Joe Andrews

    A great experience! The staff couldn???t have been better! I highly recommend

  179. Steve J

    Thanks to all at armourgeddon. I had a great time in the fv432/30, would do it again in a heartbeat. Toby was a brilliant instructor. Cheers Steve

  180. Julie Birks

    We had a fantastic time . We had already been before for my sons 18th on the tank driving experience and he loved it and wanted to come back. It was my sons 21st and also his friends 21st so I treated them to the tank paintball battle. Dominic the instructor was brilliant and very friendly. Made the whole experience enjoyable for everyone. Will definitely come back to do the other activities.

  181. Lindsey and Andrew

    Hi, We had a fantastic time on 14.04.18 with Gareth, Joel and Louis instructing us in Tank Driving. They were all patient, informative, just amazing really! This is not something we do every day and even though they do they made it special for us. I had been looking forward to it for 4/12 and it did not disappoint! This was a Christmas present from my sister and she really outdid herself this time! I’ve told everyone how magnificent it was – they should all have the opportunity to drive a tank! Thanks again.

  182. Julian scales

    Great fun ,I never thought driving??? a tank would be so addictive I can’t wait to go again. A lovely location with lots of vehicles and exhibits to see in the museum . Super bunch of instructors patient and knowledgeable. I recommend you give it a go you won’t be disappointed.

  183. Gill Smith

    Very well organised. Very friendly atmosphere. Would thoroughly recommend it to friends and relatives.

  184. Sue, Carl and Connor

    Can we just say that Roger and the team at Armageddon made Connors 14th birthday the best ever! This is a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend a visit. Thankyou so much.

  185. Mark Hutson

    It was my sons eighteenth birthday surprise, the day was really good, it started off with a look at the museum which was larger than we thought and very interesting. The tank driving instructor Louie was funny and welcoming and joined in with the micky taking and banter, the 2 hour stint seemed as though it lasted only 30 minutes which shows what a good time was had by all. Even the 2 hour journey there and back seemed well worth it, I would recommend doing it again.

  186. Stephen Pashley

    Had an awesome day out. Well organised got moved onto a earlier tank group as there was space. Our instructor was fantastic keep up the good work!!

  187. Stephen W

    Thoroughly amazing, adrenaline pumping day! We visited on a Stag party for 11 guys in July 2016 and had an epic time in the Tank paintball battle experience in 3 of the APCs. Booking was easy though must be done early. A massive adrenaline boost as you bounce around a course with the hatches first open so you can see the world, then battened down so you’re driving in the dark looking through a letter box. We also had 2 passengers in our group, and they got to sit up top as we rode around. After some practice on the shooting range with static targets we battened down the hatches and turned the paintball cannons on each other in the paintball battle. The instructor commander Louie (great guy who had excellent banter and took us through the controls), shouting commands to try and land hits on our mates opposite. The museum was also well worth a look, particularly if you have an interest in military paraphernalia, with a range of tanks you can get up close to.

  188. Scott E

    What a fantastic experience this is, driving a tank and firing paintballs. You get to drive the decommissioned tanks around a set course whilst two people load and fire the paintballs at another tank!!! The instructors are very friendly and helpful although at team briefing it all gets serious as you prepare for battle. The site also has archery, normal paintballing and driving experiences. There is small outlet to purchase hot drinks and a pork roll. With all places like this there is a photo opportunity for you to purchase your happy memorys. This is a great day out at a good price. I would recommend this to anyone.

  189. Derek John

    We went 2 weeks ago, for a 50th birthday . great fun as a team we all got a chance to aim, Fire, and Drive a tank. With the excitement of battle conditions our instructor Sean was excellent and really added to the days experience top wear Boots /wellies plastic bags for the boots and a change of foot ware for the car the bell is a great pub to get a pie and a pint great fun nothing like this. Visited October 2015 Review posted on Trip Advisor:

  190. Matt

    What an awesome day, This was a spur of the moment purchase for me, the wife and 2 teenage daughters to do something different and it didn’t fail to impress. From the museum (which is stacked full of all sorts of military vehicles plus a damn helicopter!!!), the tank driving, the target practice and the tank battle….we were all pumped full of adrenaline still on the way home. Don’t hold back, go for it…. … won’t regret it!!
