This is your chance to turn dreams into reality as you take a real tank out for a spin with this awesome tank driving experience in Leicestershire.
On arrival you will be kitted out in your tank suit and given a helmet, it's then off to the tank track where you will be introduced to your fifteen turreted FV432 tank!
Following a safety briefing and a short background history of the FV432, it’ll be time to get going! As part of a crew out of three people, you will each take it in turns to drive.
It’s then over to you, you’ll be instructed as to how the controls of the FV432 work and given a headset to wear under your helmet. For your first lap the drivers hatch will be left open so that you can become accustomed to the track and the controls. It’s then time to come out of your comfort zone for the second lap as your seat is lowered and the hatch gets closed above you.
After your experience you and two guests 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. You will also be entitled to a 10% off voucher for your next booking directly with the supplier.
