What a weekend! Was taken on my stag doo and I absolutely loved every moment! Some amazing tank driving, clay shooting and Bren gun assembly all washed down with some fun rivalry and lots of glorious mud! Oh and not to forget I crushed a Ford KA! Best place for it under a tank track!! Nick, Todd, Kate and Gill were so welcoming from the start it was like we had known them for years! I just wish I had not booked my honeymoon already! � I will deffinitly be back! Thanks a million Tanks A lot!!!!!read more

Right from the minute we pulled up in the car to the minute we left we was made to feel so welcome , all the crew are so friendly and so laid back that it made the whole day that much more awesome! This place is run so well by the must fun friendly people , I will be recommending this to everyone and I will most definitely be returning and this time with plenty of friends , they even have a tank hearse!!! (Which my partner says she will book when I’ve gone �).So I would like to thank the whole crew at TANKSAOLT for a great fun filled day ��read more

An absolutely outstanding day! Came today with my dad, step mum and brother and couldn’t have asked for a better day! Even though I was only spectating I was involved in every aspect of the day. What made the day Better than we could have ever expected was the staff and owners of the site! Nick and Kate you were outstanding and the rest of the staff were second to none! Couldn’t recommend this enough and if I could give it 10 stars I would! Amazing for any age and all the family! Thank you for such a great day!read more

There were clear explanations on what the afternoon would involve, how the tanks functioned, what the people taking part would be doing. It was reassuring how competent, friendly and down to earth the instructor, Todd, was. He was reassuring, his stories were funny and relevant. He took time to explain to my friends and I what would be happening. We felt safe and looked after, and the staff took my mobility into account. I don't think my friends who drove the tanks stopped smiling about the experience for the rest of the evening we spent with them. I highly recommend Tanks A Lot for a great day out/read more

My wife surprised me with a half day and car crush for our anniversary about a year and a half ago. I had no idea until we drove into the lot and I started seeing armor. Total kick, even though the pedals were almost out of my reach 😊. Only way it might have been better would've been if I'd been able to fire a main gun. Todd was really great, very knowledgeable, and a fount of information, especially after we started talking history, which is a long-time passion of mine. Can't recommend the experience too much.read more

I booked half day tank experience for my partner Luke, what an experience, he had a fantastic day loved every minuite of it , watching a grown man drive a TANK and smiling like a kid was great to see, and as a spectator I was so involved and was able to capture the whole thing on camera, Nick, Todd, Kate and Gill we're fantastic and so friendly and welcoming and they loved what they did and it showed, I loved the fact there are men/women instructors. (go girls ) , I would recommend this experience but book the full monty Catherine (Irish - pink wellies) and Lukeread more

My other half came for the private car crush. He had an absolutely amazing time. Nick was incredibly helpful on the phone and was a real laugh on the day. He made sure they had an amazing time. Thank you very much and for fitting us in at such short notice.read more
Laura Cooper
Amazing Birthday present! a day of driving tanks, shooting, awesome lunch, survival skills and a whole heap of banter! I thought I might be the only girl, but there were loads of ladies up for the challenge. The team were fantastic, really welcoming, funny and had loads of banter and information. Spectators were included in quite a lot of stuff, and my boyfriend thought it was safer to be sat on top of the tank whilst I was driving! I was team leader of the Black team so I wore my hat for the entire day... well you gotta haven't you! 😉 Defiantly coming back.read more
Krystle Thomas

Perfect present for my husband and as a spectator I found it really enjoyable - superbly organised by enthusiastic team with great senses of humour!

Elizabeth Lewis
Superb day had, we had the best conditions I feel, a few days sunshine and some overnight rain.Bought the full month package for my Son, but felt the need to upgrade my spectator status to participant!!Lots of mud, steel, and gutsy motors!!Awesome!! Fantastic bunch of lads (and girlies)with a raw sense of humour and a heaps of stories to tell.Although health and safety was absolutely paramount with the nature of the day, (yes there were small briefings of "obviously, don't do this...") but unlike most adventure days it wasn't rammed down your neck constantly!! (Quote of the day:- "...if you see a fire, don't stand where it is, stand somewhere else!!)read more

Terence Allen
Absolutely fantastic day today. I came as a spectator as it was a present for my dad's 60th. Every single member of staff was brilliant and made the experience equally as enjoyable for those just watching as to those taking part. This is an experience I would definetly recommend for anyone either as a gift for someone or just a fab day out for yourself or a group. Brilliant from start to finish!!! Thanks guys!read more
