Description

Embark on an action-fuelled adventure together as you take the controls of a tank and fire giant paintballs at a target.

Tanks are renowned for offering a driving experience like no other, with just levers to manoeuvre instead of a steering wheel and what could be a more perfect way to enjoy the thrill of driving this historical vehicle than on a World War Two bombing range? With the addition of a giant paint cannon at the end, you’ll be able to unleash your competitive streak as you try and aim it closer to the target.

It’s the perfect way for Father and Son to bond, but please note this gift voucher is not just for ‘Dads and Lads’ though, as Mums and Daughters are also invited to join in, or if you just enjoy the thrill of being active outdoors looking for a unique experience!

Alongside this enthralling experience, this site offers additional facilities to enjoy, with a café if you fancy a bite to eat, along with an on-site museum, home to an array of historical tanks, with some that have featured in famous films including Saving Private Ryan. Some exhibits are also hands-on, where you get a real feel for their historical significance.

Before the fun begins, you’ll sign a disclaimer and be suited up in official tank-driving gear so you’ll really look the part for this thrilling activity!

An instructor will provide a health and safety brief and show you everything you need to know about tank driving during a demonstration lap, along with a short background on tanks themselves. You’ll learn about the tank’s different controls and how to steer whilst sitting back in the turret seats, enjoying the different twists and turns of the varied terrain. It’s a perfect confidence builder before Dad becomes the driver, where he’ll take the tank for 2 laps around the track. The hatch will be open for one lap and closed for the other, which is where you’ll truly be left to your own devices to enjoy the thrill of tank driving. With advice being provided by the instructor through a headset, it’ll feel like a real-life combat tank driving scenario. The child will be sitting up at the front, experiencing first-hand the exciting views of riding in a tank as they’re taken across the challenging course.

The action doesn’t stop there after you’ve hopped off the tank, as you’ll put your best aiming skills to the test with a paint cannon, which shoots massive paint balls at a target. You’ll be shown how to use this before you battle it out to see who has the better shot out of you both!

Great Fun

My wife bought me the Adult and Child combo as a Xmas present, and me and my daughter had great fun (much more so than thought before going). I messed them about a little with the booking - the staff at Armourgeddon never lost patience. The day itself was unfussy fun - and Aidan our instructor/guide was funny, made all the activities interesting and he was not at all boring (as can be the case with guides of this type). Thanks for a great morning.
