What happens on the day?

This is a half day experience like no other as you take the controls of one military vehicle after another from the agile quad bike to the mighty Chieftain battle tank. You’ll be talked through the whole thing by experienced instructors, some of whom are veterans and perfectly placed to brief and train you in time honoured fashion.

A demanding obstacle course will test your abilities as will driving a Self-propelled Field Gun and Armoured Personnel Carrier. Each vehicle is unique but equally demanding, presenting you with the full spectrum of military ingenuity.

Awesome Tank DrivingReview by Dan, Gloucestershire
A fun day out for my whole family. I took my wife and 2 daughters along and for an extra ?10 they could ride along in the tank with me. The staff were very helpful, offering to take photos of us with the tanks and always eager to answer my kids' questions about the tanks. Thanks for all your help, we will be recommending your services to other families we know.

What do you Buy Dad ?Review by David Ings, Salisbury
This was a present bought by the family for Dad for his Birthday. The whole day was really excellent. From the very helpful lady when booking to the organisation on the day. Hubby just loved it and all the different vehicles he got to drive, especially the Tanks as the son-in-law is an instructor in the Army. They all enjoyed the day very much and would certainly recommend to anyone stuck for a perfect present.

Size problems!Review by Alan Book, Bath
The only size restriction mentioned on your web site is a chest measurement maximum size. I was just under that but being 6ft 4 inch and weighing in at over 18 stone I was unable to fit into the Challenger tank due to my height and weight not my chest size ( I'm a rugby player). This was very disappointing. Saying that I did manage to drive some of your vehicles and enjoyed them very much. I do feel that you should mention the size restrictions and make it clear to larger people.

THE BIG 50 PRESENTReview by Rod West, Newbury
This was bought for me for my 50th birthday by my good lady wife and I must say was one of the best days I have ever had. From start to finish it was fantastic. Riding the quads then on the Chieftain tank, then over to the Abbot gun, then in the APC. I would recommend to anybody to try - not to be missed. Would do it again without question. Most definitely the most memorable days of my life.

Brought out the kid in himReview by Pamela Giles, Bournemouth
My dad has always shown an interest in the military so when I was searching through all the great experience days on the website, I thought this sounded perfect. And it was! I rang up Experience Mad to ask a bit more about the day and the lady who answered was extremely helpful. They make you feel very welcome as a guest there and my dad received excellent tuition throughout the day. As it is close to Winchester we decided to stay over, which made it a great weekend. Seeing my dad drive a Chieftain tank was a sight I'll never forget - nor will he!

What do you buy a man who has everythingReview by Rose Hiles, Bristol
I went on to your web site and it had loads of great ideas. I booked my husband on to a tank driving experience day near Winchester. The day was brillant, the staff were really friendly, well organised, extremely professional. As a spectator I wasnt expecting the warm welcome at all, in fact I was going to go shopping in the town (being a shopaholic that I am). But didnt have time, I took lots of pictures of Peter and the people driving tanks, Quad bike racing, eating home made cakes and listening to the comentating. Later I was pursuaded to have a ride on one of the adapted tanks so I too could experience what it felt like. Such good fun. The day went too quickly. The staff were really helpful about where to eat and stay locally - we had a fantastic weekend thanks to the team and I have recommended you to many friends in the same boat as me. My husband received a steam train day from his parents now and we are looking forward to booking that up soon too. Thank you for making our weekend so special. Regards. Rose Hiles
