Birmingham Tank Driving
'If you're sad, add more lipstick and attack!' - Coco Chanel
Give your BFF bride to be a kickass hen party with an afternoon of Birmingham tank driving!
We're not talking about those fifty pence rides you see at the shopping centres! This is real tank driving on an actual bombing range from World War II. Excited much?
The whole experience is so authentic it'll give you chills.
'Sometimes it's the princess who slays the dragon and saves the prince.' - Samuel Lowe
You get proper tank suits and helmets on arrival, as well as a safety briefing before jumping into an actual armoured vehicle used by the British Army. Completely different to driving a car, tank driving takes focus, fast reactions and keeping icy cool under pressure.
Your bride tribe will taking a tank round an off road track. It'll be a bumpy ride with plenty of surprises. Get right out of your comfort zone and face the ultimate driving challenge.
The instructor shows you how it's done on a practice lap, then it's your turn! Get your confidence up by driving with the hatch open for your first solo lap. Then it's training wheels off - in tank terms that means it's time to put the hatch down and periscopes up for the second. This is what real battle conditions are like. Can you hack it?
If the wifey wants a unique and exciting activity for her final fling before the ring - a tank driving experience is a wild ride! It's only available in a few locations in and around the Midlands. Grab the rare opportunity to jump in one of these massive beasts and get a little taste of what it's like to be out in the field.
