I thought this was going to be a lazy ride through the sand dunes...couldn't have been more wrong! Our driver took us on a wild open-air ride up and down the dunes, through the forest, and up to high points for great views. At times it was like a roller-coaster on sand!

This dune ride was so exciting! It was like a roller coaster at some points. The driver stops on top of a dune and lets you run around up and down the dunes if you want. There were funny little jokes along the way too. The driver was funny too. My kids loved it, I was a bit scared at... More

Just shows you what helping out the rebuild of Chicago would lead to the erosion and eventual letting sand drift inland and bury a town !!! Recommended.

Such fun. I would steer you towards our driver, but I hear all the drivers are great. They are fun for the kids, and informative for the adults. All around great time.

Dune ride was awesome! $18 per person. Lasted about 40 mins. Driver gives tour - makes jokes and gives history lesson on the area. Ride stops on atop dune to give you opportunity to walk around and take pictures if you wish. Holds about 15 people at a time. Guide drives fast ... but I still felt safe. It was... More

This was a great experience for the whole family! Our kids, 5 & 8, loved every minute of this ride! Driver was great and extremely knowledgable about the dunes. He was also quite funny, which we all enjoyed! Beautiful scenery at the top of the dunes -- can literally see for miles. Fun, fun, fun!!

What a thrill! Like a rollercoaster... except it's in the sand! Our driver was awesome, drove us around like a champ, taught us so much about the region and why these dunes exist... I did no expect to learn so much while being bumped around in a custom pick-up truck! Everyone should go there!

I absolutely loved this jeep ride! Our driver was awesome. He was hilarious and well-informed. According to my mom (who went a couple years ago with my dad), our driver went much faster than her previous driver. That made it more fun for her than her first ride. We sat in the back row and it was a blast! Sand... More
