On arrival you will be issued with your uniform and a helmet and once dressed, you will be introduced to your crew, instructor and 'home' for the next hour, 1 of our 15, turreted FV432 tanks. After a briefing on the vehicle you will take it in turns to drive around the beautiful Leicestershire countryside, once a World War II bombing range- initially with the hatch open and then under battle conditions through the periscope.

Absolutely brilliant just over too quickly. Great museum attached. Covid-19 protection procedures excellent and very reassuring. Good number of photos whilst driving. Instructor extremely clear on what to do at each step, very reassuring. I definitely recommend the extremely organised and professional company.

Amazing place, great museum. Shane our guide/instructor was easy to talk to, very knowledgeable, and made us feel at ease. The drive of the tank was amazing, and would have gone round more times if we could. The photo's at the end are excellent, and worth the £35.00 cost. Will be coming back again in the future.

The tank driving experience was brilliant and the instructor alex made me feel at ease the only thing that let the day down was that I couldn't buy my picture at the end as there was a computer glitch but all in all a very enjoyable experience thanks

My grandson Alex had a great day out at Armourgeddon,he was thrilled that he had driven a tank the day after his 17th birthday .The instructor also called Alex was really good with Alex giving him some intercom headphones so he could hear when driving as he wears hearing aids the whole experience was excellent and the photographs on the memory stick are a lasting reminder of a fantastic day

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.
