Do I get a discount for driving the tank over the car if I provide the car myself?
Honey, I know where we’re going on vacation next year:
Drive-A-Tank in Kasota, Minn., gives customers the opportunity to drive old Cold-War tanks around a 20-acre wooded course and shoot historic military machine guns. And for an additional fee, drivers can crush a car and even drive through a trailer home.
Drive-A-Tank opened three years ago after owner Tony Borglum saw a similar experience in England. He now has almost a dozen tanks and is currently the only attraction still operating that offers this opportunity.
“It’s the only place in the world where you can drive tanks and shoot machine guns that isn’t owned by the government,” Borglum told ABCNews.com.
The four-to-five hour experience includes an in-depth safety presentation, history about the vehicles, the tank drive and the firing of machine guns in an indoor shooting range. Each customer drives a tank with an open hatch and for an additional cost, drivers can pilot a tank in a “combat style” situation in which the hatch is closed.
Okay, so it costs an absolute minimum of $399, all the way up to $3,500 to drive through the trailer home. But what if you provide your own trailer home? How much then?
Plus, it’ll be good training for just in case the zombie apocalypse gets really out of hand.
Think my wife’ll buy it?
