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

We had the best time on a dune ride with our great driver Tom! Shared history and kept us laughing, too. It's fun for little ones and older ones. We sat in the front so there was no problem with bumps. Beautiful scenery.

Great ride to see the "living" dunes as well as the older ones, including history of the area. Pretty busy in the summer, so get there early and try to get Aaron for your driver, he is great.

I've traveled a fair amount and these Lake Michigan dunes are incredibly unique, beautiful, and in my estimation an under-rated attraction. These are the only "living" dunes I've been to, but these are lovely, and from them, the view of the lake and surroundings are unparalleled. The rides - we liked it so much, we did it twice in the...

$18. and worth every penny! No reservations for a party less than 10. Credit/debit cards accepted. You may have to wait until a later time to complete your ride. Our group consisted of teenagers, 40 somethings and grandma. At first I was skeptical because it's pretty touristy. However, our guide Jeff made us feel like we were far away from... More

They don't take reservations but you can buy tickets for the next ride that is open. The guides are hilarious (we went twice with our grandkids) and offer some great history of the area. The views you get are really unique and the ride is exhilarating and just plain fun.

Took our kids (9,6,5) on a beautiful monday morning. Only about a 10 minute wait. The scenery on the ride was great and the ride was a lot of fun. All three of our kids (boys and girls) loved it. The commentary from the driver was cheesy but the kids definitely loved it. Great views and it's like a roller... More
