From Our Editors

Tearing through the Leicestershire countryside, Tank Mania offers an array of armoured vehicles to navigate the humps, bumps, dips and pits of off-road terrain. The fleet of plated powerhouses includes an AFV 432 armoured personnel carrier and an open top amphibious Hägglund BV206 for thrill rides. Birthday, stag and hen parties and corporate days are available for those seeking an alternative and adrenaline-filled experience, while individual driving and family days are also on offer.

Being told that if you put a gun on an armoured car does not make it a tank. The men in the group were totally bored. 2-2.5 hours in the back of a truck and an armoured car is not exciting. It is no more exciting when you close the doors neither as told it would be by the driver. Total waste of money. Spend it on something else.

Drive needs urgent attention.It is totally unsuitable for most saloon cars. Nowhere to clean off your boots. It says refreshments available but this is only drinks. Snacks should be on sale. Ear protectors should be offered.and staff ought to wear them. Slats on seats in Daff are broken making seats dangerous and need replacing. Customers need more warning about being able to access height of vehicles. Staff don't check whether helmets are correctly adjusted. Could be amazing with a little more effort.

Don't be greedy, it ruins your reputation. Don't make silly 'insurance charges' for spectators or ban the taking of photographs.

Yes, I'm sure some people have done silly things in the past and yes you need to be assertive to prevent that happening, but not objectionable. Also, the day we came, all visitors got the same 'experience'. But people were booked to get different 'packages' - such as a Three Tank experience - which didn't happen. The tank experiences were quite good, being driven around in a
