Visited today and had a great time. My dad was doing the driving and I was a spectator. Well organised and great value even as a spectator by getting to ride on 3 tanks. Will definitely return in the future. All staff are very friendly,...More

Spent a very entertaining morning with these guys and couldn't fault the experience. Very well organised with both drivers and spectators looked after brilliantly, massive thumbs up to Dot's cakes too! Back for a Dig It day soon!

Really helpful instructors. A good range of vehicles to drive and excellent instruction on each vehicle. Partners get to ride on the top of a Chieftain tank or an Abbott mobile gun, both of which have been converted to allow passengers on top of the...More

Wow! Every boy (and a lot of Girls!) wants to drive a tank. It doesn't matter what anybody says about their ultimate function, these are fun things to control - several tons of powerful vehicle. I'd had an idea about the way they're controlled but...More

Booked this for hubbies birthday. Didn't quite know what to expect. Went along with 2 friends and a 7yr old. We paid for spectators, so while waiting for Simons first drive, we all piled on the Abbot tank for a ride. Great experience and the...More

I'm disabled and we be able to get in and out of the tanks etc and not worried about that but I am worried that whilst others are driving the tanks, we'll be stood around waiting and I'm worried about the standing. Is there lots of standing? I will take a fold up chair with me just in case though but a bit anxious! Hope the staff are understanding as I can't stand long and will need lots of toilet breaks too!
