Learn some tank history, drive some tanks, shoot some WWII weapons. It's a day-camp for adults, especially realistic when it rains and you end up drenched. Playing in the mud with tanks. Can it get any better? No. Highly recommend the Sherman package, allows 2 passengers, including shooting the weapons. It's a hoot! Staff is great. Can't wait to do... More

Drive a tank. And shoot machine guns. It is fascinating to get inside of these behemoths and discover how cramped they are. We were in relatively modern vehicles and you can be sure that they are more user friendly than your basic Sherman. It gives you a whole new appreciation of what our guys went through in North Africa and... More

Drive A Tank is an exciting , unique and historically educating attraction. All of the personnel are friendly and welcoming. It is a very organized place, with little waiting or downtime. It's a must for military history affectioados with or without children. Children ages 11-16 can participate as passengers in the various military vehicles, but can not actually drive them... More

This is an opportunity to do something very few people can have claimed to do. There is an age limit and children under a certain age can't participate for safety reasons. Absolutely great as a gift or just because you want to do it. Terrific people make the whole event very enjoyable.

We purchased a 4 star general package for my dad for Christmas. I know that this review can't fully explain how awesome this experience was for us all. This company delivers the most authentic experience that you could ever dream of having. This experience will stay with my Dad and me for as long as I live. No matter what... More

We took our 14 year old son for this awesome adventure. Did the 4 star package, drove 10 hours to get there, and it was totally worth it! Still got to get up close and personal with the Sherman, just a bit out of our budget to drive. You get to see, touch, climb on and in the tanks during... More

Our grandson is into everything military so we decided to give him an experience he'll never forget. We drove an armored personnel carrier and a 17 ton Abbott tank. In addition we got to shoot 3 different automatic weapons on the range. The good: Obviously we had a fun time and got to do some things most people never get... More

We had an amazing day with our 5 star experience for my husband's 60th birthday. He was grinning from ear to ear after driving the tanks and shooting the machine guns. The briefing before gave us insightful knowledge of the tanks too. Playing with the cute black labs was a bonus.
