Cool Your Kids Off This Summer Learning To Drive A Fire Truck! - News

  • Children as young as 10 can now burn off some energy this summer by learning how to handle a 10 metre long fire truck
  • Increasing admission numbers at a wide range of the UK's tourist attractions means frustrated children could be left spending more time standing around in queues than having fun during the school summer holidays
  • The latest addition bolsters an already extensive unique Junior Driving Experience roster on TrackDays.co.uk, which can also see youngsters take part in their own cops and robbers chase!

Children as young as 10 looking to burn off some energy this summer holiday can now swap a seat at a school desk for one behind the wheel of a 10 metre long fire truck, for an experience which avoids crowded tourist attractions.

Indeed, with annual admission trends increasing by an average of 42% across the country's tourist attraction industry* when compared to last year, rising visitor numbers could ultimately mean more fun seekers are left all hot and bothered trying to beat boredom while standing in the queues.

Designed to give children a taste of what it is like to be a fireman, our new Junior Fire Engine Driving Experience includes a full safety briefing within a Dennis Fire Engine, as well as providing advanced driving tuition, such as how to navigate slaloms and obstacles.

Dan Jones, Operations Manager at TrackDays.co.uk, says: "Being able to offer budding heroes the chance to take a fire truck out rather than wasting time in endless queues is a unique experience which we know children would much prefer."

"Many of us grew up watching Fireman Sam on telly, and remember those days when you visited the fair and could sit in a fire truck. I was always mesmerised whenever a fire engine would drive past and wish I had the chance to drive one when I was young."

This latest addition further strengthens an already extensive Junior Driving Experiences roster that we have available for youngsters. Opportunities for 10 to 16 year olds to take part in a Cops and Robbers Car Chase, or even become a movie star via driving one of the Junior Movie Car Packages are among a host of exciting experiences already featured.

Jones continues: "We have managed to bring some of the best young driver experiences to our site, providing the perfect one stop shop for parents looking for alternative and unique ways to keep their children entertained without breaking the bank this summer."
