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.

What a great experience! I highly recommend it - and my two boys loved it too. It’s not ever say you get to drive a tank.

Great day out. This was a Christmas gift for me and my son and we paid extra for my wife to join us so we ask for to enjoy the experience. Driving the tank was a great and we also used the converted gun to fire paint balls at targets. Our instructor was superb, clear instruction and informative.

The museum was great too with a variety of vehicles, displays and dress up area. I would recommend this as a gift experience or to a tank enthusiast.

Absolutely loved it. Joel was a great instructor. My son is obsessed with tanks at the moment - his grandad was a tank driver. So I booked this for him, though I ended up driving a tank something I never ever thought I’d do and loved it! I think I might have missed my calling’. My dad would be proud too!

We had an adult and child experience (9 yo granddaughter), and it was great. We both loved it, and our instructor was great, with both me and my granddaughter, and we all had a wail of a time.
Highly recommended, and we all want to go back and have another go!

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.
