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. When it’s not your turn to drive, you will sit in the turret and enjoy the ride!

After waiting almost two years, my boyfriend was finally able to drive a tank, it was so worth the wait! Everyone was really nice and accommodating with my many queries during all the changes in COVID restrictions.
He had an amazing time driving the tank and I absolutely loved being a passenger. What an absolutely incredible experience, I definitely recommend.

Mary and I finally got to use our vouchers from 2019 - well worth the wait. The team were welcoming and understanding and made the whole experience open top and "buttoned up" an experience. Interesting little museum as well then suggest a visit to Market Harborough for lunch.

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.
