Tank Passenger Ride
- Driver Minimum age is 18
A taxi with a difference?!
Jump in the back of one of our fleet of modern CVRT tanks for the best fun you’ll have this side of the driver’s seat!
We’ll kit you out in a camp jacket, helmet and some ear defenders ready for a quick briefing and then in you go, jump into the back of 8 tons of Britain’s finest tracked machinery!
You’ll be able to see out of the top, maybe even stand in the turret or the best seat in the house – the commander’s position. Wherever you are, this is an amazing ride in a very capable, tracked armoured vehicle that will take your breath away, they don’t hang about!
Alvis CVR(T) Spartan Tank
This is what we affectionately call the ‘sports tank’! The reason behind this being the engine and performance of this 8-ton beast… The engine is straight out of the Jaguar E-Type! A 4.2 litre, 6-cylinder petrol engine giving out over 200 horsepower. It propels this aluminium fabricated APC to well over 50mph!
With a semi-automatic gearbox with 7 forward and reverse gears (yes, that means it’ll do 50+ mph backwards too!) it’s got fingertip steering controls and even a separate braking system due to its phenomenal performance. With room in the back for only half the passengers of its big brother, the FV432, the Spartan is designed for speed and agility and not brute force.
