Ready for a good time, a real good time? Then head on down south to Morganton, Georgia for a raucous day of driving tanks. Morganton, a hamlet in the northern reaches of the Peach State, is home to Tank Town USA, an amusement park of sorts where everyday folks can drive British FV-432 Armored Personnel Carriers around five acres of fine Georgian soil.
Opened in April of this year, Tank Town USA is the culmination of the long-held dream of Todd Liebross who has been collecting old military vehicles for decades.
So far, reviews for Tank Town USA are thumbs up. “I have to say it was an absolute hoot,” said Lori Lockman who had been given a day at Tank Town USA by her husband for her 50th birthday. “Car crushing was the best part. It was bit scary at first to roll over it. But the crunchy sound it makes—and that back windshield blowing out-were incredible. I also loved the fact that I was able to keep my hat on the whole time—just like the Queen would have done.”
