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 44mm 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 Dads 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 Adult and Child experience isn’t like a Yorkie Bar, it can be for the girls too!

It was fascinating to drive a tank, and EASY, actually! I got far more interested in how a tank works, having to drive it myself, than looking at tanks in museums... It also helps becoming aware of what life must be for tank drivers in hot countries. It gets hot in there and directing the tank with a small window must be challenging when you have to be there for hours. I recommend the experience to anyone and many thanks to Armourgeddon for their non-discriminatory approach to women who want to experience the tank driving :)
A great family experience.

We both had a fantastic day. The museum was really interesting but the tank driving& target shooting was sublime! We can't recommend this highly enough. Also the photos ( 40 put on a disc for £20was great value) even drinks and snacks not over priced that you usually get on day experiences. So first class all round. Thank you guys for an amazing time we will both treasure the memories of a unique experience!
