Motorists drive tanks at Minnesota action park
KASOTA, Minn.—Motorists stuck in traffic may sometimes wish they were driving a tank. A business in southern Minnesota offers them a chance to see what it is like.
Drive-a-Tank, near the town of Kasota, lets drivers take the controls of a British tank and drive it around a mile-long dirt course. For an extra fee, they can roll over a car or smash through a trailer house.
Several hundred people have signed up for rides this year. Drivers say driving the tank is surprisingly easy and crushing a car is like being in your own action movie.
Owner Tony Borglum (BOHR'-glum) got the idea after seeing similar attractions in England. He started offering rides about three years ago and now has about 11 armored vehicles.
