If your idea of a lovely day in the countryside involves smelling the flowers; listening to bird calls and making daisy chains then, rather like Yorkie bars, today’s Big Deal is probably not for you.
However, if your ideal day out involves adrenaline, warfare, mud, mean machines and, for some reason, the smell of diesel in the morning reminds you of victory then today’s Big Deal will rock your world.
You will arrive on site to be met by your Drill Sergeant, who will help you get kitted up in all your army gear and brief you on the intricacies of some Army lingo.
Then it is time for a troop briefing before you head to the battlefield to take to the controls of your mean machine. 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 is to safely navigate round an obstacle course of steep mounds, slippery turns and water dips while evading the pursuing enemy tanks.
Next, you will be kitted up with your (paintball) rifle, full face mask, body armour and gloves for an afternoon of splat-tastic paintballing.
You 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 mates, birthdays, Father’s Day, world’s worst driver awards or simply because you’re worth it, today’s Big Deal is:
£44.50 per person for a mini-monster truck drive and half day paintball experience at Tank Driving Scotland; a 55% saving on the standard £99
