ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Transformers Optimus Truck Driving Experience

Get behind the wheel of a 10-ton Kenworth T600 truck, AKA Optimus Prime from the Transformers movies!

Experience first-hand the extreme power of a 10-ton transporter lorry, the obvious choice for chief Autobot Optimus Prime. Unfortunately the truck won't transform into an enormous gun-wielding robot, but you will get to take the controls for three unforgettable miles of driving, available at several top tracks across the UK.

The truck driving experience begins on arrival at your chosen location, where you'll start by registering in the tent and meeting your instructor. Once your name is called, the expert instructor will get you settled in the cab and explain the truck's controls, the main differences between driving standard cars and heavy goods vehicles, and the rules of the track. Then you're off! Now this isn't a high-speed experience, you'll need to manoeuvre carefully around the circuit and follow the advice of the instructor beside you, otherwise you'll find the truck might be the one driving you!

The Optimus Prime truck driving experience is great fun for Transformers fans and HGV drivers alike, making it the perfect unique gift for a special occasion.
