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.

Brought my 9 year old son and partner here for a dad and lads tank driving experience day. It did not disappoint! They loved every minute of it. Such an amazing day. All staff were knowledgeable and friendly, and the day went smoothly form start to finish. The museum is also a great experience for the whole family.

Received a Dad and Lads experience as a Fathers day present last year. What a great experience it was.
We enjoyed viewing the museum and tanks on arrival with plenty to see and the lads were interested in the tanks but also the other military displays and equipment.
Charles hosted our experience which began with a full briefing and changing into better clothing suited to tank driving. A full explanation and safety rundown was given before setting off for an instructor lead lap. We didn't expect to be firing at the targets and I thought the lads would just be passengers but the chance but they were really excited to get a chance to get involved. I enjoyed my 2 laps of the circuit and learning about the tanks before reversing back in to park. Chris was an excellent host and instructor and after we reflected on our experience whilst waiting for our photos which were very good over a snack.
Would definitely recommend Armourgeddon as an experience to anyone else and hope to return at some point in future for tank paintball and I'm sure when they are old enough, the lads will want to have a drive too. Thanks for a great experience.

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.

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..
