Fantastic day in Budapest. Friendly staff and unique transfer (Russian made UAZ4x4) made it big time:) Our guide was really great and the new program we booked they just starting "MotorPaintball" is really exciting. We have been briefed very shortly a few minutes after arrival we were sitting again on a different Russian Military jeep off the road fully equipped with the coolest markers I ever saw like real ones! We had to shoot targets at different distances under the strict supervision of friendly professionals. This was the winning combination we could have for our budget to ride on a combat vehicle off-road with bumper's true plashes or mud and shooting experience as well! 100 rounds each but only two 20 round magazines so we had to load mags a few times as well and it was quite complicated shaking off-road.But fun and excitement. The whole experience was pure Fun! Recommended for all!

Fantastic afternoon in Budapest.Very friendly staff and unique taxi(soviet made UAZ) made it charming as well :) Our guide Gabor was a real gentlemen and when it turned out the APC my wife was promised to drive is unavailable - he got us a free upgrade for a tank... Some costumer service that was! :-) I have noticed there was little to none briefing, however i need to stress that all the time you will be under strict supervision of friendly professionals that will NOT allow you to harm yourself or anyone else(even when this is your first time driving a tank). When it turned out there is a slight delay for the shooting range, our host Gabor made sure we are entertain ;-) Shooting range features a short safety video but for a civilian with 0 knowledge on subject it might be a bit challenging - again, we have been accompanied by a very friendly and professional supervisor who made sure the whole experience was pure fun! Last to know is despite the fact you will see words like "museum" or "exhibition" on trip advisor and official page - please do not expect London National Museum or some other poshy nonsense - shooting range, tank driving range and war machine exhibition are 3 different locations. Last one is basically a small yard next to a small wild airport with some epic soviet-made machinery for you to see, touch and take hundreds of photos - no boundaries, no "do not touch" exhibits. Just you and the equipment. Have fun people!

We started off our trip to the site with an enjoyable run in an ex-military Mercedes G-Wagen, complete with camo paint job and were then given the opportunity to have a look around the yard at the all of the other vehicles parked there. The BTR-80 which we had originally booked was then prepared for us and we were allowed to drive it round the site at full speed under professional instruction. This place is easily one of the best attractions in Budapest and is well worth a visit.

After looking at the prices of the other ranges I thought I would give this place a go as it has such a nice website and we could taylor a package to suit us, transportation is included so this was a plus. I have a shotgun license in the UK and thought it would be fun to take my sons to shoot some guns we can't shoot here. After booking online I still had no communication from them after two days so I sent them a message via their site, I re listed the package info we wanted "Dictator" the preferred day and time and if we could get transportation to and from the venue....... still no feedback after a day, so after four days of one sided emailing I decided to use my personal email address and send another message so as to confirm my booking, time was now running very short, the email I received was as follows: "You can arrive to the shhoting range we are working!" very short and sweet, this still left me in the dark as to if anything was booked but time was now up and we were flying in the morning, I thought I might call them once we arrived. After speaking to a local woman she agreed to help and she phoned the owner up on our behalf, he informed us he was away in Germany but we should make our way to the range but unfortunately he could not provide transportation. We caught a local taxi to the range from the center of town(Pest side) and this cost us 10,000 HUF the return taxi was 4000 HUF!!!, the first one drove around the countryside for quite some time riding his meter, a cautionary tale but that's not for this post. Once we entered the range at the appointed time there was no one in sight apart from two burly guys with a group shooting, we wandered about and had a solo tour of the empty offices, bar, pole dancer podium and toilet facilities, we decided to wait in the bar area, after fifteen minutes a group of french tourists entered and a safety video was started, their young female tour guide asked us what we were doing there and I informed her that we had booked to shoot, she went a got an elderly gentleman who proceed to quiz us in Hungarian via the translator as to what we were doing there and if we had any email confirmation, I proceed to show him the " WE ARE SHHOTING" email that he clearly could not understand, after much head scratching on his behalf I mentioned the package "Dictator" a broad smile now appeared as he disappeared out of the bar, quite perplexing to say the least! By this time we had missed the safety video so it's a good thing that we have shot before! The french tourists were now informed that they had to go to "Shotgun" and we sat, still non the wiser in the bar, the two burly instructors entered and proceed to devour two large pizzas behind the jump barely giving us a second glance......... quite an unnerving and unwelcoming vibe, once they finished they walked past and hissed "let's go" we were herded in to the range and they proceeded to very quickly pass us hand guns to shoot, not that we were too fussed as we have shot before but I could see a novice being very intimidated by this, once we had shot the hand guns the AK was produced and we had a go, then the instructors wanted to sell us some bullet case bangles, a nice find for airport security in the UK! we waited for the final gun in our package the PPSH but this did not materialize instead we were informed that we needed to go to "Shotgun" not part of our package and something I do at home nearly for free! by this point I could not face anymore haggling or quizzing and decided to call it a day, upon exiting the range the elderly gent was waiting for us and informed us to "go to shotgun" I tried to explain that it was not part of our package but gave up and showed him the "comrade commander" picture on their site as it was pretty much what we had just done and pointed to the price, we paid and waited for him to order us a cab. I hope that this was not a NORMAL day at the range for them as the owner was away, hopefully once he is back things are different. All in all a very unforgettable experience but one I very much hope to forget!

We got picked up from our hotel. And went to a airstrip were we could drive in a tank what a great experience we had big smiles on our faces driving it. After the driving, we went to a shooting range and shot with 3 different pistols and an ak47 and a sks. When shooting you get so much adranalin. Next time we go to budapest or hungary we wil come back for more!
