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.

Great experience for me and the passengers - only thing I would say is if it's raining don't go for 2 laps with the hatch closed as you can't see anything and you're then just following directions from the instructor - good for comms skills ! Didn't get asked for choice of 3rd lap - my fault perhaps for not asking. Would definitely do it all again.

My day was awesome. If you are thinking of doing a tank driving day, or getting one for someone as a present - buy one here - it's very, very good. The museum is also surprising good too.

What a great experience. Stuart my instructor was superb, very polite, informative and well, just a nice guy. Course was very, very muddy which made it interesting and whilst the lower part of the course was ‘out of bounds’ it in no way detracted from a super time. Just a great excuse to go back and do it again. Museum was great afterwards and all the staff superb.

We loved it all. Perfect weather, lots of mud and an amazing new experience.
We were very well cared for by Richard and thoroughly enjoyed our time with you.
We were also very happy with the photos which made a great souvenir.
Thank you

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.
