The whole team really went out of their way to make it a really memorable time! Driving the Abrams was really great with helpful guidance and the well-defined track! Having the opportunity to shoot a variety of guns and live ammo really put a different perspective from just seeing historical footage or movies. Very helpful and knowledgable resources who patiently showed us around and answered countless questions. A very unique, don't miss experience!

What You'll Get

Like an armored tank, a treadmill has treads that can be turned upside-down to create an extra-challenging treadmill. Take off with today’s Groupon to Drive A Tank in Kasota.

The Deal

For $239, you get a tank-driving experience for one (a $399 value)
For $899, you get a tank-driving experience for four (a $1,596 value)
For $1,700, you get a tank driving experience for eight (a $3,192 value)

  • Each tank driving experience includes:
  • Safety and familiarization course
  • Tank basics, history, and Q&A session
  • Hands-on tour of vehicles
  • Ride in historic military vehicle to Field Command headquarters
  • Chance to drive a FV433 Abbot on a military-themed course
  • Machine-gun-safety course
  • Machine-gun-history Q&A
  • Test fire of WWII machine gun
  • Debriefing<p>

Each three- to four-hour tank-driving experience begins by elucidating the metallic beast’s physical makeup and history. After a safety and familiarization course, participants take a ride in a classic military transport vehicle out to Field Command headquarters. Students pop their heads up through the tank’s open hatch, affording excellent visibility of the wooded course obstacles and legions of marching squirrels. Having successfully negotiated peace with the course, tank jockeys ride back to the training facility, where they participate in firearm safety training and fire a WWII-era machine gun at the indoor range while an instructor stands ready to assist.<p>
