Whether in the military or not, most people don’t drive tanks.
Drive A Tank has opened its doors to civilians wanting to live out their tank fantasies. The park is a small hidden gem that has been open for nearly a decade now.
We’re trying to get normal people — civilians who wouldn’t normally have access to military equipment — a little bit of hands-on knowledge,” said Drive A Tank’s owner Tony Borglum.
It’s one of the only places in the world where you can drive a tank and shoot a machine gun under one roof that’s not owned or operated by the government. With packages ranging from $449 to $3,699, this military theme park will have you behind the wheel of a 15-ton armored vehicle through a course of woods and mud. The course ends at the car crushing area where visitors get to destroy perfectly intact Priuses (and other vehicles) by running them over.
After the tank course, attendees get to shoot rifles like the Barrett 50 Cal. and belt fed machine guns like the M1919 Browning. A perfect outing in our minds.
