You Can Crush Cars While Driving A Tank At DriveTanks in Uvalde, Texas
We’ve already covered this one-of-a-kind place in a previous article, but today, we’re zeroing in on one particular aspect: crushing cars. At DriveTanks in Uvalde, you can hop behind the wheel of a massive military vehicle and run right over vehicles.
Located on the renowned OX Hunting Ranch, this unique attraction is nestled within 18,000 sprawling acres of beautiful Hill Country land. DriveTanks boasts one of the most immersive tank driving and shooting experiences in the entire world, with several different options that leave visitors feeling exhilarated, empowered, and a little more knowledgeable about our country's war history.
Nothing demonstrates how much sheer power these vehicles have quite like witnessing glass shatter into a million pieces. Hop in a Chieftain MKG tank and hear the satisfying crunch of a vehicle flattening under your direction.
Car crushing isn't a separate experience, but rather can be added to any existing package. That just means another opportunity to keep the fun going all day long!
Five different adventures allow visitors to shoot machine guns, reenact war scenes, and navigate a difficult obstacle course. Packages vary greatly across the selection of tanks and an extra fee applies if you want to fire the main gun.
Mimic how the Allies fought against Germany with three different explosives. Steel discs, hand grenades, and a massive fireball blast will send the ground right before your eyes up in flames (safely, of course.) Purchase an all-inclusive package, or just test the waters with one detonation — the choice is entirely yours!
If getting behind the wheel of a tank is too intimidating, there are several less daunting activities to partake in. Fire your choice of more than 20 machine guns from all over the world, some of which produce more than 1,000 rounds per minute.
Address: 1946 Private Road 2485, Uvalde, TX 78801.
Hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.
