The ride is fun, informative and has great views. Lots of fun for all ages. If you have back trouble sit in the front because the back is bumpy. But we all enjoyed it and would definitely do it again with my husband who couldn't make it.

Get here early as rides book up fast. We stopped in about 2:00 p.m. and the next available ride was at 7:00 p.m. It worked out wonderfully because it was a hot day. Spending time out walking around at the observation areas in the hot sun and on the hot sand would be miserable. Leaving out at 7:00 p.m. when... More

Very fun dune ride for the whole family. Jokes where a little cheesy but entertaining. The views were very good of the dunes and Lake Michigan. They let you get out walk in the sand and take pictures. The history of the area was very interesting.

A roller coaster ride in the sand, complete with a humorous tour guide, beautiful scenery, and a little history. It's not often a family can find all this in one spot. We enjoyed this ride and plan to come again. THANKS!

We have taken dune rides twice and it was a fun experience both times. I would highly recommend it. The drivers were a little cheesy, mostly for the kids, but it was a fast and informative way to tour the dunes, see a great view and have a roller coaster ride in sand. Our first driver drove faster and was... More

My husband and I arrived about 1/2 hour after this attraction opened, on a Thursday morning in July. The reservation counter was hopping, but we were fortunate enough to get 2 seats in a dune buggy leaving in 1/2 hour. Other larger groups had a much longer wait, and some were NOT happy. The ride and scenery were terrific and... More

Having read some of the negative reviews for this experience, I can understand why some people weren't happy. I was told there is always a wait and 45 minutes was a pretty short one. The staff on ticket sales didn't seem interested in their customers. However, as adults, once we were on the ride we enjoyed it a lot. Our... More

We may have just been lucky but my wife and I stopped by based on a sign we saw out on the highway. We got right on the next ride out with no wait. My wife has a handicap and the driver was very helpful in getting her on and off the ride. We both loved it and would do... More

I did not really want to do this at first. We were heading to Silver lake later in our trip to drive dune buggies/Razr's so why have some one drive me and a bunch of other people over dunes on a leisurely ride. I was wrong. When you arrive you are assigned a time. We had heard this so we... More
