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.

Received this as a birthday gift. Drove through 150 miles of non-stop torrential rain and an hour sat in stationary traffic on the M1 to get there, and it was definitely worth it!!
All the staff were really friendly and helpful. Luke was amazing, really personable and did everything he could to ensure I enjoyed the experience as much as possible. Fantastic instructor. He even got me to do precision reverse parking, which is something I can barely manage in a Honda Civic! Huge thank you, Luke!!

Definitely take up the offer to have a passenger on board. He loved being up in the turret, and as the person who bought me the experience it was great for him to see directly how much fun I was having.

Also nice to have him in the photos too, which are really good professional quality and are now being circulated round work with "you MUST try this!" comments.

Would definitely recommend, and will be buying a reciprocal voucher for the OH. Thank you for an amazing experience.

I booked this experience for my Husband for Christmas 2019, we finally managed to go on Saturday 23rd October 2021. My husband had a fantastic time driving the tank and enjoyed being passenger. The staff are very friendly, supportive and knowledgable. We had a wonderful time, and would love to come back again for another experience day in the future.

My son had a tank driving experience for his 18th Birthday and could not have had a more enjoyable afternoon. We were greeted by Alex, who made us feel very welcome whilst he booked us in. We went around the museum, which is quite small, but has plenty to look at. We had a snack and a drink from the little Cafe, before starting the tank driving. We were introduced to our instructor Wayne, who was clearly very knowledgeable and gave us a very good overview of the history of the tank. Whilst my son drove, my other son and I enjoyed the perfect view from the turret. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time and would definitely recommend the experience.

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.
