In the meantime we will continue to operate as normal - but we will not be taking any bookings for after 31st March and all vouchers must be used by then. This is to be fair to both any potential buyer and of course our wonderful customers.
Tanks For Everything gives you the chance to experience real working military vehicles up close. We offer driving (yes YOU can drive), rides, guided tours, group events, gift vouchers and more.
Our amazing vehicles range from a classic jeep to a 52-tonne main battle tank. Based just 10 minutes from Christchurch Airport on our own private site, our friendly and experienced staff will ensure you get the most fun possible from your tank experience.
As well as individual and small group experiences we also offer team-building, corporate events, vehicle hire and gift vouchers - perfect for the team or person who 'has done everything' - bet they haven't driven a tank before!
We have vehicles and packages to suit all ages, abilities and budgets but if you dont see what you want Contact Us and we'll customise a tank experience especially for you.
We are open any time by prior booking - our next Tours and Rides family day is TBC - see the Contact Us page for more info.

We have had a lot of people say that the guided tour was really fascinating and something they hadn't realised would be so interesting and enjoyable before they came along. A guided tour of our vehicles is included with every driving experience and includes up to 5 people at no extra charge. Group rides also include a guided tour. Contact Us
