Drive A Tank, Inc

Drive A Tank teaches civilians how to handle tanks by placing them at the controls of an FV433 Abbot tank. 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.

Go, it is fun and well worth it, do the three star general experience at a minimum. The people there are informative and do pretty much anything to make your experience there fun. Really cant say enough good things. Go you wont regret it.

Bought this for my husband for father's day. He rounded up a few of his guy buddies who did the ride along option. They all had an awesome time, even the ones who didn't drive the tank. It was definitely worth the money!
