Once you have arrived at Armourgeddon, you will be kitted out in your tank suit and given a helmet. Then it's off to the tank track where you will be introduced to your FV432.

Our Tank Driving Experience is run on a one-to-one basis. Following a safety briefing and a short background history of the FV432, it's time to get going! Initially your instructor will drive you around one of the tracks here at Armourgeddon, based on an old WWII bombing range. Then it’s over to you. You will be instructed as to how the controls of the FV432 work, given a headset to wear under your helmet and then you are off.

Your first lap is driven with the drivers hatch open so that you can become accustomed to the track and the controls. Then it's out of your comfort zone for the second lap as we lower your seat down and the hatch gets closed above you. Driving in battle conditions looking only through your periscope it’s back to the track for lap two. The third lap is of your choice; will it be hatch open or closed? One thing is for sure; you will have a newfound respect for our members of the Armed Forces.

Absolutely fantastic! James was a brilliant instructor even when I veered off piste a bit! Definitely recommend this for anybody who wants to give it a go. The photos are worth paying for but take your own USB for them to go onto, to save money. The staff are all so friendly and down to earth. The venue is very non-pretentious. Small cafe area but the coffee is fine and the giant sandwich baps are better than they look, with lots of tasty filling. Funny little museum, packed with vehicles and weapons, and good information boards for most of it. A brilliant day out!

I’ve had a tank driving session on my bucket list for some time. I saw this company on the internet and after reading the reviews I decided to book a session for myself and a friend.
We were not disappointed the staff were very helpful and provided instruction in safety matters before we entered the vehicle and continued to do so as necessary around the course.
The tank was in good condition and the experience of driving was second to non.
As a car driver I personally found it difficult to steer for some of the muddier parts of the course but the instructor gave superb advice and a very enjoyable day was had.
The military museum was very good with a selection of equipment from different countries.
The small cafe is ok but the guys recommended a place a few miles away for a full breakfast as we had traveled from Chester.
All in all a very worthwhile place to go.
Highly recommended.

Synopsis:

Team building is an important part of business growth and development. Meetings and seminars on the importance of team work tend to be extremely boring to the staff and they don’t do much in developing their working spirits. The best way to develop the spirit of team work among your staff is through corporate team building activities. There is a wide range of activities to choose and you could involve your team in picking their most preferred options. The best options on the market are paintballing and tank driving.
