Tank America rolls into Orlando ready for action

by Tharin White

Now open, just minutes from Downtown Orlando, Rollins College, and Full Sail University, Tank America is ready to put you in charge of a 17-ton military machine as you navigate jungle terrain, hills, and mud holes.

“Tank America is one of the only places in the country you can get behind the wheel of a real tank outside of the Army,” said Tank America partner John Kinney. “If you’re looking for a thrilling experience outside of the theme parks, it doesn’t get more thrilling than Tank America.” 

Tank America Brings Full-Size Tanks, Obstacles Courses and Car Crushing To Orlando

The new 14-acre Tank America adventure park offers several high-intensity packages to give guests an immersive tank-driving experience. Each package includes a safety and vehicle briefing and offers an additional way to explore the terrain.

Tank America Packages Include: 

  • Basic Tank Training ($299) – After a safety briefing from the platoon Commander at Headquarters, you will board one of the 17-ton tanks and lead your crew through a 1/2-mile tank course that requires you to navigate hairpin turns, climb a fifteen-foot hill, and cross trenches.
  • Commander Package ($599) – Take the same route as the Basic Tank Training package with the added challenge of driving from inside the belly of the tank, navigating only through the vehicles periscope as if you’re actually driving into combat.  
  • Advanced Troop Package ($999) – Upgrade to the Advanced Troop Package to add a car crush, mud hole, and complimentary additional guest. This package is for guests looking for even more destruction. The driver will find themselves face to face with a real car that they get to drive over and crush three times from three different angles. Glass will shatter, metal will fly and the headlights will pop under the weight of 17 tons of armored tank.
  • Ultimate Package ($1,299) – With the Ultimate Package, you get to experience all that Tank America offers. Drive the tank course (including all the additional obstacles) along with the excitement of crushing a car. You can also test your skills using only the periscope and guidance from your tank commander to navigate through the Battle Front in combat, all locked up.
