I`m a driving instructor, and learning to drive is fun. But learning to drive a tank is by far much better fun. Thanks to my tank instructor for being very helpful, would highly recommend to try this, its going to be a annual event for us now. Thanks again, Tony.

My boyfriend and his friends had a great time there and they would definitely do it again. They did find the experience a bit short but loved the museum.

This day was purchased by our son for my hubby for his 65th birthday as he loves all things military. They loved it. Better facilities for the spectators to watch would be good an enclosed shed with seating around by the picnic table perhaps. Two hours a long time to stand in cold especially with children, who didnt want to go inside and miss anything!

The Tank Battle was incredible! My girlfriend bought it for me as a birthday present, and it was the best present I've ever had - the site was very well equipped, the staff friendly and very knowledgeable, and the battle itself was great!

Would def recommend, especially when the sun is out. Unfortunately our headset for the instructions didnt work, as well as a high pressure tube to be able to shoot some pingpong balls. Our instructor must have been a former army guy, as initially he was harsh, very tensed and serious. At the end he warmed to us a bit.
