This experience is perfect for parents to spend some time being laughed at by their son or daughter. If that appeals, as long as the child is over 8 years of age (there is no upper age limit,) then this is the activity for you! Upon arrival, you will both be issued with tank suits and helmets and after a safety briefing and some history about the FV432 tank that you will be learning to manoeuvre, it’s time to get going!

Firstly your instructor will drive you around the track and you will both sit up in the turret seats enjoying the thrill of heading into the pits and peaks of our track from high up at the top of the tank.

After a lap of the track, you will park up at the target practice position- no not the cows, but the bulls eye target board and two tanks in the middle of the track. You will both learn to charge, load, aim and fire the 40mm air cannon fitted to the turret of the tank from battle position. The question is; who will be the best shot?

Next up it’s the adult's turn to drive. Once the controls have been mastered, it’s a lap with the drivers hatch open followed by a lap in battle position with the drivers hatch closed seeing the track merely through the periscope.
The Adults and Child experience isn’t like a Yorkie Bar, it can be for the girls too.

We took the Dads and Lads Experience voucher and we were not disappointed. Don’t let the title fool you! My wife and I had an amazing day, regardless of the rotten weather (in fact, it made the experience much more realistic!). The photos you could buy afterwards were an excellent souvenir.
Would definitely do this again.

It was a excellent experience, from start to finish our instructor Chris was brilliant and allowed my 8 year son to have verbal diarrhoea with excitement while still keeping the day moving and excitement of driving and firing the tank high. It was very good day and highly recommend it.

My husband and son had a great time . Heather was a great instructor . Gutted that something went wrong with the camera so no pictures available of my husband and son sitting next together at the top . Only pictures we have are of my husband driving and can’t really see my son at all . Spoilt what was otherwise an excellent day out as no real keepsake of such a great adventure ☹️

I would like to start with a big thank you to all the team at Armourgeddon. We felt very welcome and safe in the environment it was amazing to see the tanks warming up. I was with my 8 year old son and Girlfriend who was also able to take part. Lovely as it was her who bought me the experience for my 30th Birthday.

Instructor was amazing and did not have any worries when the first tank we used developed a fault. We were able to swap over post this and given still the amount of time we were scheduled too.

I would have no concerns recommending this experience. We stayed overnight in Rugby as we were visiting from Kent. The Museum was also fantastic for the History Geek like me with many varied things to see and look at.

Amazing Amazing Amazing! Do not hesitate you will not regret! Take Suitable footwear and also cameras!

Synopsis:

Your Dad. The only person that you struggle to buy gifts for. Everyone else is easy, aren’t they? Your husband or wife just tells you what they want (but always be aware of the ‘Oh no, I don’t NEED anything this year…..!' Ha! As if!) Your kids will have had the Argos book out and circled for weeks, maybe months ahead of time. But Dad? Now that’s a different kettle of fish.

Tank driving at Armourgeddon is huge amounts of fun for all involved. From the chuckles we have in the office when we realise we have booked people into tanks with great name combos like Mr Oats and Mr Barley, to looking forward to welcoming our annual ‘Crazy Russian’ visitors..
