The best fun I've had in absolutely years!
I took my two sons, aged 13 and 18 years old, for what I thought would be a fun birthday treat out for my youngest,
trying out driving tanks... that sort of thing. BUT, it was so much, much more than that! Right from the off, there was
energy, fun and excitement in the air... drivers are camou'd up, everyone is made to feel special and your day begins.
Hurtling around in monster tanks, up and down seriously deep ruts had me whooping with joy, and I couldn't wait to
see my sons faces - I was not disappointed.
And if that wasn't enough - they have an armoury too - where you get to strip down a gun and rebuild it - all
for fun! I found it an enormously bonding experience with my boys, a day full of memories (and pictures) that I
shall never forget.
If your question is "should I?", then the answer is an unequivocal "YES"!!!!
