If you’re an action man/woman and long to drive a tank, powering tons of merciless metal on tracks over the roughest terrain or obstacle course, but don’t have deep pockets, then check out this range of great tank driving experiences.
What happens on this tank experience
Well first you get a short safety briefing, as it’s vital you come out of this experience all in one piece.
Then you get instruction in how to drive a tank or an armoured vehicle and you get let loose with the metal monster to do your worst.
At under £100, as you’d expect, you don’t get a huge variety of vehicles to drive on your tank session, and you don’t get very long driving them either – say 45 minutes to an hour right-foot-down time on average – but what you do get is a fascinating introduction to tanks and to the sensation of powering one of these armoured monsters across unforgiving terrain or round a purpose-built obstacle course.
It’s a taster session that will probably leave you wanting more, and is a good experience to try or give someone if you’re not sure whether tank driving is really as enjoyable as it looks (and yes, we think it is!).
So if you don’t want to spend the £350 or so that the Full Monty tank day costs, then this is good value for money and a good introduction to tank and armoured vehicle driving.
As you’d expect, the contents of many of these experiences are different, using different tanks and armoured vehicles on a variety of terrains and courses, but they are available up and down the country, so we suggest you check the list below, find the ones in your price range and check out the location and what you actually get for your money.
