The team have taken the covid situation very seriously and once you are with your instructor and wearing your supplied helmets (i can confirm you will need them in the confines of the tank) this is where the fun begins.
After an initial explanation of the interior and exterior (hot exhaust) you decide who drives out and who will reverse back once your drive is over.
You take turns driving the 2 laps, 1 lap with your head outside the tank and on the second lap you are viewing through the small letterbox opening giving you a very different perspective.
Once your 2 laps are done you swap over with your partner who then takes the controls while you take the top seat at the turret giving you an amazing view.
A fun day out and with the museum to explore you are guaranteed a great day.
Thanks to our instructor "G" for looking after us on the day too.

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.
