Description

Fulfil your childhood fantasies and experience the thrill of driving a 15 ton military vehicle!

On arrival you will be issued with your uniform and will be introduced to your crew, instructor and 'home' for the next hour - a fifteen turreted FV432 tank!

After a briefing on the vehicle you will take it in turns to drive 2 laps around the beautiful Leicestershire countryside, once a World War II bombing range. Start with the hatch open and then under battle conditions looking through the periscope.

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

After your experience you can enjoy the museum which displays a large military vehicle collection, everything from a 1947 BELL 47G helicopter to a 1940's M4 105 SHERMAN.

my own world of tanks

this was bought for me by my two adult children as a christmas present and while i have not looked up how much it was i believe it was well worth it. I would go back for the full day. the only down side was although i was told i could bring people to watch i was told on arrival each person would be charged £5 and although i was told it was in the email i have looked over all them all and can not find it . this could have added a £20 or more cost but it was waved as i never recieved one from the company itself. All in all it was a great time spend driving / being passenger in the tank. get there early as the place gets very busy and looks to be a great day if there all day

Great Experience

Just what we hoped for. It was excellent. Sadly they ran out of decent uniforms and I got a really manky one, which detracted a bit from the photos, but the tanks and driving were great.
