Texas has the ability to remind each and every one of us that anything is possible. Not only is everything bigger in Texas, but many would argue things are better as well. With something new and unique to do anywhere you visit in the state, it's hard to disagree with that argument. Texas is home to the unique opportunity of being able to drive and shoot from a real-life tank in Uvalde. If that's not the most Texan thing you've ever heard, I don't know what is.
DriveTanks is the only place in the world that offers non-military personnel the chance to operate a massive tank. It may be something you never thought you'd want or be able to do before, but with how awesome of an activity it is, it's doubtful you still won't want to. Chances are, you'll be able to say you've done something none of your other friends have.
Once you arrive at Uvalde, Texas, which is just a 1.5 hr drive from San Antonio, you won't be far from DriveTanks! The site offers a variety of packages to choose from, depending on if you prefer operating a smaller or a bigger tank. You and up to 6 people can split the packages that way it's manageable for everyone. You don't have to do this alone, in fact, you can bring the people closest to you and experience this crazy opportunity together.
Packages you can choose from involve driving a tank through their obstacle course, shooting actual full powered tank rounds from one, and operating massive guns. What an insane day you could be having!
