Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have lodging available on-site?

DriveTanks.com is currently working on a one of a kind WWII themed “barracks” exclusively for our customer lodging.  Historic styling with all modern amenities will set the stage for your incredible adventure at DriveTank.com.  However, this project will not be finished until mid-February.  We do have overnight accommodations arranged at the Hampton Inn just down the road from us in Uvalde, TX.  A special discount rate has been set up for our guests.  Just give them a call directly and tell them you are with Ox Ranch/DriveTanks and they will set it up for you.

 

Ox Hunting Ranch only has accommodations for hunting packages that are booked through the Ox Ranch itself.  Ox Ranch has all inclusive hunting packages that start at $1,000 for 2 night all inclusive and must accompany any hunting package, of which prices can be found on the Ox Hunting Ranch Fees Page.

You always have the option visiting DriveTanks.com during your stay on the ranch.  This allows you to add one of our Tank adventures to your already amazing Ox Ranch visit.  Ox Ranch also has an amazing 3 hour ranch tour for $300 (up to 5 people included) that encompasses all of the amazing sites here on the ranch.  You will see a large number of African animal species, including the chance to hand feed the Giraffes, incredible caves, and actual dinosaur tracks.    The ranch tour is booked directly from Ox Ranch and is a great option for a day trip.

We sincerely regret that we do not have lodging available on the ranch for clients that are coming to exclusively do our Tank Adventures.  However, as mentioned above, we are diligently working on that as an option.

Is there any age limit on who can drive or shoot?

We have no set age limit.  It is entirely up to the parents and the capability of the kids to follow instruction.  That being said, we have had kids as young as 8 shoot and as young as 12 drive the tanks.  We have mounts that several of the machine guns can shoot from, so that there is no need
for recoil management of control.  This allows the experience of shooting machine guns without the strength that otherwise may be necessary.

If I pay to drive a tank and have some friends with me can they ride on the tank or drive it too?

The price includes up to 5 free guests, including you. but only one tank driver per tank booking. However, additional laps with the same tank to allow different drivers can be arranged for a 20% discount from that tanks individual drive price.

Do I actually drive the tank or does someone drive for me?

Yes! When you book any of our tanks experiences you will drive the tank through our one of a kind tank course with extreme terrain.

If I shoot a tanks main gun do I shoot a real or fake round?

100% Real Tank Round! You will shoot a real round just as they are meant to be shot. Full power loads. We do not shoot some powderpuff or blank load.

How long do I drive the tank for?

Times may very on how fast or slow you drive the course but a average lap around our one of a kind tank course last 15-20 minutes of actual driving. If you are shooting the tank then you will be working on and around the tank for an hour or more.

Do you have an airstrip I can fly in on?

Yes, for those who prefer to leave the driving out of the equation completely, then why not fly directly into the ranch’s 5,800 ft Paved Runway located right on property. 01TX is the FAA identifier.

Can 2 people drive the tank on one lap of the course?

No, it is one person per lap. However, a second lap can be purchased at a 20% discount off the drive price for that particular tank that is already on the tank course.

What are your hours?

We are open seven days a week from 9am-5pm. *You can view our calendar online to see if dates and times are available to book. If you wish to discuss over the phone we would be happy to assists you as well.

Do you offer any veteran, police discounts?

We have a very high respect for both law enforcement and veterans. Most all our staff if either one or both. We have tried to set our pricing at the absolute lowest threshold that we can in order to cover operating costs and the many expenses associated with an endeavor of this magnitude. For that reason, we have no real ability to lower our prices any more than they are currently set. We do however, give our vets and law enforcement clients a free DriveTanks.com ball cap and shirt when they visit. Just let us know when you’re here.

Where is DriveTanks.com located?

Drive Tanks.com is located on the famous OX Hunting Ranch. Located on 18,000 acres of some of the most beautiful land that the Texas Hill Country has to offer. You will see all kinds of exotic game during your visit.

Yes, we have developed a program to support many nonprofit organizations at no cost to them. Please email us at info@drivetanks.com and give us information about your charity.

Do you allow camping?

We Normally do not allow camping or RV set ups as it would require a staff member to be present as we have many exotic animals free ranging around our premises.
