Our offer in detail

A shaking experience!

You have to get into the tank, in this cramped space where soldiers could enter up to 10 at the same time. Forget about comfort, and get ready to be shaken. In the cabin, it’s dark, it’s hot. The engine noise is hellish and despite the helmet, the vibration takes you to the guts. Then the armored vehicle starts in a jolt and goes to attack the mounds of earth installed on the old A10 airfield. Imagine that in addition to these difficult conditions, the soldiers were under enemy fire.

A passionate pilot

Before or after your armored vehicle tour, take the time to listen to our pilot. True passionate, inexhaustible on the subject of World War II and Hedgerows Hell, he gives you details that you may not know and enthusiastically answers your questions.

Report from the France 3 television channel on the tank experience

An experience that is not for everyone

It’s a real physical experience that you’re going to have. The route is chaotic and the noise important, for these reasons we do not recommend this activity to pregnant women, heart patients, people suffering from the back and children under 5 years (or more, depending on your child you know better that we).

Museum visit

Before or after your tank experience, immerse yourself in history and visit the museum for an additional € 1. Twenty sound stages arranged along your immersive journey and nearly 10,000 authentic collectibles await you. Your journey takes you from occupation by the German army to victory via the Hedgerows hell, a major event in the fighting in La Manche
