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

  • 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>

Drive A Tank, Inc

Comprehensive tank experiences include lessons on the history of its use, from World War I up to its present function as the vehicle of choice for the most aggressive holiday shoppers.
