Great tank driving weather coming up!

Right. Listen up you guys, and you girls with a fella.
We know that every guy longs to drive a tank. Some join the army to do it for real – but there’s no need to sign up to the armed forces when a real live Tank Driving Experience is now available to practically everybody. And in complete safety!

But the thing about tank driving, besides it being rough and macho and hairy and noisy and tough, is that to get the best out of it you need the worst of the weather.
Yes, that’s why the tank experience is available in the winter months, and the winterier it gets the better you’ll like it.

It’s no fun driving a tank over smooth fields in the middle of the summer with the sun gently shining down on you. Oh no!. To really appreciate the power, ferocity and sheer brutality of your multi-ton steel leviathan, you need hills, lots of them, and mud, lots of it. In fact the muddier the better. So if you’re on a wild terrain in pouring rain in a depth of mud that would guarantee your Ford Focus is stuck for the duration, then that is the ideal situation to get the most out of your military vehicle and to show your tank-commander mettle.

So if you were waiting for the better weather to drive your tank, then perhaps you’d be better taking up knitting.
Or if you were going to give your guy this fantastic action gift but had decided to wait till next summer, then think again. If it’s cold and wet and muddy and nasty, then that is what tanks were for and that is exactly when he will enjoy it the most.

So get on with it and get your tank driving experience bought now.

And to save you time looking round, the very best tank driving experience is the Full Monty, both for its variety of vehicles, time at the controls and excitement factor.
Here they all are as sold by the top experience providers.

They’re all the same experience at the same place, so just pick whoever is cheapest at the moment. It’s as easy as that.

Tank driving experience gifts

Buying a tank driving experience for a gift?

So are you thinking of buying a tank driving experience as a gift? Good choice, but there are a few things you need to think about first.

[ds query=’+tank -flotation -floatation |max_price=150′]

The main thing when you’re buying a tank experience as a gift is where the lucky person lives. These experiences aren’t available in many places throughout the UK, but if you’re after a standard tank experience it’s going to be available in more places than specific ones.

Most of the tank experiences are in Leicestershire, for example so if you’re buying a present for someone who lives in Scotland they’re going to have a long drive.

Why not search by location in the right hand side column to see what’s available nearby. If the location isn’t that important, you can search by price too.

The best tank experiences

But if it’s a really specific experience you’re thinking of buying as a gift, why not just get it and give them and see their face light up?

What could be better than driving a tank? Crushing a car with a tank, that’s what!

On some experiences that feature car-crushing, you may find that you’re in the tank with three or four other people and the crush driver is selected from among you by the instructor.

So you get single-handed car-crushing, but you’re guaranteed to be the crusher, which is why these experiences cost a bit more than the other type.
