For my husbands birthday last weekend we took him to drive a tank at Tank Town USA! I read about Tank Town USA in an email from Explore Georgia and immediately added it to our must do list! How often do you get to drive a tank?
Tank Town USA is cool from the minute you step out of the car. There are old military vehicles to check out, crushed cars, and lots of car emblems. I enjoyed looking at everything while we waited a few minutes to get started.
Todd was awesome and told us a lot about the vehicles there and even texted me the background information on the type of tank we were driving.
The booking process online is very easy and the options are very well explained. Also, the day before our event I received another email with further instructions like wear closed toed shoes and not to wear your best clothes because it is dusty or muddy depending on the weather.
Also, included in the confirmation email were recommendations for local restaurants in Blue Ridge. You know I appreciated that because I’m always looking for a great restaurant. We actually dined at Harvest On Main, it was great!
Tank Town USA is located about 8 miles or so outside of Blue Ridge so you have enough time to make a fun day out of both places!
A ladder is used to get on and off the tank!
My husband doesn’t get too excited about much but he was almost giddy about driving the tank. He even wanted the t-shirt “My Therapist is a Tank!”
Todd took these pictures for me and they turned out great…again super nice guy!
There is a large area that they drove around and they came by the spectator area twice so that was a good time to get photos and videos!
Everyone was all smiles!
I would totally recommend Tank Town USA for a day of fun! My husband and kids loved it. I enjoyed watching them but I think I’ll be driving next time!
