Price for 1 participant

This Leicestershire experience lets you drive a tank for 3 glorious laps around a purpose-built obstacle course. This is a really unique driving experience, for those who like a bit of rough! Forget your sleek cars and your shiny tarmac, this one is muddy, bumpy, loud, and larger than life!

This feels like an authentic military experience in many ways - you'll be suited and booted in camo gear and a helmet, and driving an authentic, 17-tonne modern military vehicle. Your instructor will guie you through the basics before you take the controls and rumble around the course yourself!

Your day will begin with a vital briefing concerning the instructions on how to drive 17 tonnes of hardened steel. Then if you have managed to contain your excitement long enough you will be let loose to attempt tackling the steep obstacle course. Feeling confident? Well next you will have to try it with all doors and hatches closed seeing only through your periscopes! You will take full control of this amazing machine and be in charge of where, what, why and how the tank moves over the purposely difficult terrain.

Certainly a very fun afternoon, the centre itself is set in beautiful grounds with many other military vechicals to see. We went on a very warm and sunny day, perhaps more mud would have been better-but thats hardly the companys fault!
