Why Drive a Car When You Can Drive a Tank?
If you’ve ever driven on the 405 freeway in Los Angeles during rush hour then the thought of your car transforming into a tank and crushing everyone in front of you crosses your mind once every 2.3 seconds. Though you can’t head over to your local car dealer and purchase the latest Sherman model, you can get the experience of crushing a car thanks to a company called Drive a Tank.
Located in Kasota, Minnesota, Drive A Tank World Headquarters will allow you to get inside of an Abbott convoy style & the FV432 APC for a few hundred dollars and simulate a combat driving mission through the woods. Prices start at $399 per driver and you not only get to drive a tank, but also fire up to three historic machine guns depending on the package you choose.
Upgrade (and why wouldn’t you) for the ultimate tank experience and crush some cars while you’re at it. Pay for this package and you’ll get to smash two vehicles in the tank while you laugh maniacally like a super villain.You can’t fire the tanks (they’ve been “de-milled”), but you can make loud boom sounds and pretend you’re blowing up bad guys.
Drive a Tank has a lot of experienced instructors and drivers (and babes like Kessa) that will give you the most bang for your buck. You can also go into their gift shop and buy shirts, hats, shot glasses and photos of you driving the tank.
Be sure to check out their website and Facebook page if you want to have that one of a kind experience. Or just steal a tank like this guy did and save your money for the lawyer you’re going to need when you get arrested.
