Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.

The tank driving instruction was excellent, and my grandsons picked it up very quickly, only one of whom had a driving licence!
The whole day was filled with fun in a hospitable and safe manner.
My wife and I were so pleased with the whole day that in a few years our next set of Grandsons will receive the same treat.
The ancillary activities plus the food and beverage were of a high standard.
We will be back!

Had an amazing day. Purchased the Full Month for my wife and my 14 Yr old son and I were spectators but felt included in the whole day.
I would definitely recommend these guys as a day to remember. Excellent value for money.

My wife bought a Half Day Tank Driving experience for me and then came along as a spectator too. What an incredible (half)day, I got to drive an FV432 armoured personnel carrier, an Abbot self-propelled gun and a Springer 4x4 buggy (not technically tanks if you want to get particular, but definitely good enough).
You also get a talk about the history of fire-arms and a quick run through various types of guns and explosives up to the modern day in the Armoury room which has many deactivated guns hanging on the walls, there's a surprising variety too.

As you drive the vehicles you get scored (out of 10) and the person at the end of the day with the highest score gets to drive a Chieftain main battle tank and crush a car. I was one point of winning but standing outside to watch the carnage is just as fun I reckon.

Spectators have to pay £20 extra but they do get a lot for their money. My wife got to ride in the back of a FV432 with us to the driving area and then got to sit in the commander position of the Abbot as I drove it around. We even had enough time for her to drive a Springer too.

There was tea, coffee, juice and biscuits available at no extra charge all day long. Staff we're all extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.

Absolute cracking day at #tanksalotltd, drove a few big boys toys and learnt a bit of gun technology from the armourer.
Well worth a visit.

Professionally looked after at every stage. Refreshments on tap at the mess house, really knowledgeable staff, that explained the vehicles and how to drive them.
Plus all the other random questions thrown at them, which they had time to engage with all that wanted to ask and learn.

The site is awash with military vehicles of varying sizes, each more interesting than the last, loved the chance to get up close to some of the biggest armoured vehicles in the country. The car crush was epic. I need to get me one of those tanks for parking on our street.

... and then to top it all they have got a Tardis!! (Which would look amazing in my garden, but the Mrs objected, might have to have a chat with Nick)

These guys are also helping the Ukrainian war effort by supplying refurbished tanks, armoured vehicles and machine guns.

The vehicles we drove were under test for refurbing and then sending over for service in the Ukraine.

Feeling quite proud that I have done my little bit to stick two fingers up to Putin.
Cheers guys keep up the fantastic work.
We will be returning and bringing a few friends.

I took part in a ‘Full Monty tank driving experience on 27 August 2022, which costs £400. I arrived at 8:30am and left at left at 6:15pm. The activities I participated in were as follows:
 8 Shots in Clay Pigeon Shooting
 Learning to build a and light a small fire
 Driving FV432 APC around a 3–5-minute course
 Driving an FV433 Self-Propelled Abbot around a 3–5-minute course
 Lunch
 Listening to a lecture about the history of guns in the ‘armoury’
 Driving a MAFV Stormer around a 5-minute course
 Driving a Springer ATV around a 2-minute course.
 One turn of firing a ‘Brown Bess’ Flintlock Land Pattern Musket.

Firstly, I should note that I am a historian of the British military, and I am currently employed as a lecturer and research fellow at a British university.

Prior to the day itself, I noticed that the description in the brochure and online is quite vague in terms of what exactly you will have a chance to drive. This is understandable as military equipment can be temperamental, especially with age. After the event and with hindsight, I would argue that this lack of specificity was quite deceitful as I did not actually drive a tank during the day. While I had the opportunity to drive four military vehicles, each of those I have listed above are armoured people carriers, mounted artillery, or buggies. Perhaps this is overly harsh, as some of the armoured vehicles I drove were turreted and would seem to be a tank to a lay person. Armoured Fighting Vehicles (AFVs) are more common, far lighter, and easier and cheaper to run and maintain than Main Battle Tanks (MBTs) To a military enthusiast it is galling to participate in a ‘tank experience’ by a company called ‘Tanks a Lot’ and not actually sit in or experience a real tank. I found it frustrating that the staff did not acknowledge this. The FV432 and FV433 ‘Abbot’ were repeatedly and consistently described as tanks, which is not an accurate representation how these vehicles are used in modern militaries.

This leads into a second point. Some of the information provided by staff about the vehicles and weapons on show was inaccurate or entirely incorrect. As a historian I ask lots of questions, and it perfectly okay to not know the answer: one person cannot know everything. What is unforgivable however is making up nonsense and passing it off as accurate information. There were several glaring errors made by staff throughout the day, which betrayed an ignorance of the subject. Perhaps the best example of this was during the lecture on the history of guns, when Rorke’s Drift was described as an infamous British defeat. On top of this, there were a number of comments made by staff about women and race that have no place in 2022. I will not call out individuals directly, but their attitude can be summarised by a top on sale in the shop. Printed on the front of the camo green top are the words: “I was beaten by a girl on tank day…. She crashed on the way home”.

A third problem concerns the organisation of the day itself. Very little time is spent ‘experiencing’ armoured vehicles. In total, I spent no more than 20 minutes in the driving seat of a military vehicle, and hours upon hours were spent waiting for my turn, sat in sun on a hot clear day. No shade was provided whatsoever, and the only refreshments were made available at lunchtime and at the end of the day. Added to this, participants were required to wear military overalls over their civilian clothes. The result was sweltering, and I ended the day drenched in sweat and covered in heat rashes. The other activities provided, such as learning to build a fire, seemed designed to stretch the day out and limit the amount of fuel burnt per customer.

Given that the experience costs £400, each participant will be asked to pay £15-20 per minute in an Armoured Vehicle, and none of these are tanks. If you are really passionate about driving armoured vehicles, then perhaps this would be worth a try, but it will cost you a great deal, and for me, it is just not worth it. If you would like to learn more about military vehicles, their history and how they are used today, I would advise that you look elsewhere.

To round off the day, the owner’s Rottweiler guard dog attacked my girlfriend while we attempted to leave. She is okay, but I can’t think why the dog was chained to a rope lying across the only entrance to the place.

To summarise:
 It costs £400.
 We were there nine and a half hours.
 I spent 20 minutes in total driving things.
 A dog tried to kill my girlfriend.
 I did not get to drive a tank.

Based on this, I can’t recommend.

Dear Sir, Thank you for your review. We are very disappointed to hear you didn't enjoy our day. We welcome feedback of all kinds but in this instance I don’t intend to change anything. It’s aimed to entertain the General man or woman in the street, possibly not a historian who lectures at a British University. We change types of vehicles so regulars keep coming back, our August winner has been several times but never won the car crush before. I can’t help noticing there were some inaccuracies in your review. Refreshments are available all day at no charge including tea coffee soft drinks biscuits, bars of chocolate, packets of crisps and fruit etc I noticed dozens of slices of cream cakes available at the end of the day at no charge - customers just helping themselves with a waitress constantly re stocking. I’m afraid you mis-read the Tee shirt confusing the word crushed with crashed It reads. I WAS BEATEN BY A WOMAN AT TANKS-ALOT SHE CRUSHED THE CAR. we have 20 % lady drivers but 80% lady car crush winners. As for Tyson our main gate guard dog as the signs imply, he is a guard dog not a family pet. His chain is secured to a steel cable not a rope and there is no reason why any member of the public needs to be near him – we have staff on hand to open the gates, you only need to ask. We have many live firing tanks on site and he is one of 8 Rottweilers who know their job – we have signs that should be obeyed and the public should not try to interfere with him. As for price, I challenge anyone to do a day cheaper offering so much. We’re still here after 30 years - almost all of our competitors have fallen by the wayside unfortunately. We now have to use white diesel at £2.11 per litre delivered instead of a red kero mixture at 27p a litre. An Abbott now costs about £45,000 instead of £1,750 when I first started. We will be reviewing our prices soon. You also failed to mention the numerous free drives we gave to spectators when time allowed. Thank you for your feedback but we intend to follow out current way keeping more than 99% of our customers delighted, and returning and having lots of fun (we won’t be setting homework either). As for an Abbott not being a tank, I think comedian Ross Noble summed it up beautifully. I had recently sold him a nice Abbott and when he was on Top Gear, Clarkson asked him about his new toy not actually being a tank, his reply was “ trust me Jeremy, when you look in your rear view mirror and see me behind you, it’s a tank.”
