Getting tanked takes on an altogether more riveting connotation with the concept of tank adventures.
Adrenaline puts the power of these 52-to-70-tonne beasts on wheels at your command in an extensive range of tank ride experiences, including tank course training, driver training of centurion and army tanks and joy rides of every type, make and model in truly tanked experiences.
The bone-crushing heft of these WWII-era tanks right up to modern-day vehicles are experienced from the smallest cockpit imaginable. But you’ll soon be feeling larger than life and in superhero tank-driving mode, traversing unsteady, rough and ready terrain on custom-designed courses. Expert training ensures that you will experience
the power, strength and invincibility of these mammoth military vehicles, which are motivated by the ground-swelling force of V12 Royce engines.

The expert safety and tuition that accompanies all of the tank driving or riding experiences at Adrenaline ensure that your protection is as paramount as the dense metal casing shielding these enormous machines and their operator from undue damage or harm.
