“Drive-A-Tank” Allows You To Drive Military Tanks, Crush Cars
Ever been stuck in traffic and wished you were driving a military tank so you could cut through the rush with extreme prejudice? Well now you kind-of sort-of can, so long as you make a pilgrimage to Kasota, Minnesota where a small business is offering customers a car-crunching wet-dream, for a price.
A business named Drive-A-Tank offers customers a chance to pilot military surplus tanks and other armored vehicles through a limestone quarry, smashing, crunching, and flattening junk cars along the way. The Huffington Post notes, “the ride is loud, grinding, hot and dirty – ideal for satisfying one’s inner Rambo.”
Drive-A-Tank’s website describes the adventure thusly: “A tank driving adventure makes the perfect gift for that person in your life that has everything,” and suggests the spectacle for corporate events, bachelor parties, even Father’s Day.
Customers are raving. “To have that much weight on just two brake handles, it’s awesome,” said one customer after the tank rolled over a car and rained glass around his head. The car “was like a tin can,” reports Fox. It was “easier than I expected,” and “an awesome Christmas present,” said an insurance man from Richmond, Virginia, who brought his wife along as co-pilot.
Your basic package will run you about $399. That includes driving the tank and shooting the machine gun. You can customize your experience for extra cash; for instance, try driving a couple models, shoot other weapons, etc. Smashing a car costs an additional $549, and if you want to pay $3500, you can drive the tank through a trailer house.
I think I’ll make the trip next paycheck. Anyone who wants to party in a tank with the Dust-Buster, leave a comment below!
