This experience is perfect for Dads to spend some time being laughed at by their son. 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 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 Dads and Lads experience isn’t like a Yorkie Bar, it can be for the girls too, it’s just that Dads or Mums and Lads or Daughters isn’t quite as snappy a title!

Great experience well worth the price. The instructor was very knowledgeable when he explained what type of tank we were using and its history in military service. My son loved the target practice with the paintball canon. The museum was packed with military vehicles from different era's

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.
