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.

Excellent day with my 16 year old. He loved being able to drive the 432. Will definitely be back and have a go at the tank battle. Shame about the museum being closed due to Covid but will have a look on my next visit

Throughly enjoyable day out! The adult and child tank driving experience allowed my son and I to partake in an event that will remain with us both for years to come. The instruction was clear and informative and added to what would be a day out I would highly recommend

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.
