The dune rides were so much fun. There is a bit of a wait, on a week day, so I can't imagine what a weekend is like. You may have to purchase a ticket and come back later. The guides are hilarious and informative. A great attraction for all.

We bring our grandkids for the dune rides every summer. Just thrilling enough to make the ride exciting without being scary. They've requested a return trip this year. Views from the top of the dunes are spectacular where the ride stops to allow you to walk around. Bring a camera if you like photography. Great landscapes. You may need to... More

I rode dune buggies in same place 40 years ago and back again with my boys 11 and 12! Life memories forever! Great views of woods and dunes. Fast but not too fast for Grandpa! 40 minutes with a stop to walk around at top of dunes. Our family lives in LA and boys loves it! Austin was an excellent... More

My wife and I made a trip on the Dune Rides 2 years ago. We said we needed to bring our 5 kids with us because we had so much fun. Well, we made the trip and had a blast! The guide was humorous and informational. It was amazing to see the look on out kids' faces (ages 10, 9,... More

Great ride. Our driver,Jeff was very informative and entertaining. He had us laughing the whole time. Went later in the day and had to wait a little over an hour, but it was worth it. Ride lasts about 40 minutes. Jeff took some of the turns fast, but I always felt safe. It almost felt like a roller coaster.

Do not miss this Dune Ride! The guides are funny and very educated about the Dunes. We had lots of laughs. It was such a thrill to ride down the dunes and we were able to stop at the very top and walk around to take photos and soak up the sun. I learned a lot about the local area... More

If you are in Saugatuck, this is something that you shouldn't miss. Jeff (our driver) made the trip. Very accommodating to the handicapped in our party. The ride was a blast and the stops were very informative. We got there just after opening and had no trouble getting tickets. When leaving, the wait was a couple hours.

Had terrific fun doing this with my teenagers. The driver was funny and informative. We learned a lot about the history and geography of the area but presented in a very interesting way ... so much so that my 15-year-old kept quoting our driver during the rest of our stay. Great family fun.

My wife wanted to start doing some things around Michigan since traveling out of state can be expensive. She's made a list of various places and attractions that she wants to take out family to over this summer. On the list was the Saugatuck Dune RIdes. I didn't expect much. Maybe a fun jaunt on the dunes. For the price,... More
