Few things say a day in the countryside quite as effectively as the smell of diesel, the roar of mean machines and the gentle phut-phut of paintball guns picking off your opponents.
If you’ve got what it takes to participate in extreme truck driving and do battle over five different paintballing scenarios then lock and load for today’s Big Deal.
New recruits will arrive at the Tank Driving Scotland site near Dundee to be met by the Drill Sergeant, who will help the rookies get kitted up in army gear before delivering a short, sharp lesson in Army lingo.
Then it is time for a troop briefing before heading to the battlefield to take control of the mean machine.
An aptly-named beast, the Mini-Monster Truck sits five feet off the ground on wheels which are three feet high and over a foot and half wide.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to safely navigate round an obstacle course of steep mounds, slippery turns and water dips while evading the pursuing enemy tanks.
Having completed truck duties, the infantry will be kitted up with (paintball) rifles, full face masks, body armour and gloves for an afternoon of splat-tastic paintballing.
Recruits will experience the thrill of being transported to the battle zone by Army tank, where you and your comrades will assume battle positions for five different paintballing games in a variety of zones.
Ideal for a day out with your chums, birthdays, Father’s Day, Mum’s birthday, world’s worst driver awards or simply because you’re worth it, today’s Big Deal is:
£30 per person for a mini-monster truck drive and half day paintball experience at Tank Driving Scotland; a 69% saving on the standard £99
