$99 for a Drive A Tank Quad Package ($310 Value)
Each three- to five-hour Humvee experience begins with an informational bonanza that covers the history of the HMMWV: Highly Mobile Multipurpose Wheeled Vehicle, the Abbott SPG, the APC, and the Chieftain Main Battle Tank. After a safety-and-familiarization course, participants encounter their first military vehicle, 5-ton military troop transport vehicle.The troop transport will drive them out to the hidden Field Command headquarters. Troops then hop into an armored HMMWV, and the vehicle commander drives across approximately 1 mile of wooded terrain. Along the way, they will dodge obstacles and legions of marching squirrels. Next, these now seasoned warriors change it up and traverse the trail combat style- completely sealed off from in the back of an APC.
Having successfully negotiated peace with the military-themed course, jockeys ride back to the training facility, where they participate in firearm-safety training and fire a real machine gun at the indoor range while an instructor stands ready to assist. Check Drive A Tank's schedule here.

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. During certain packages, tanksters complete their militaristic forays by test firing WWII-era weaponry or crushing cars beneath behemoth treads.
