Description: Experience the Oregon Dunes and Family Fun Park at Sandland Adventures...
Experience the Oregon Dunes and Family Fun Park at Sandland Adventures. Offering tours of the dunes since 1987, our professional drivers will show you a great time while you travel across an impressive natural wonder of endless shifting sand.

These 7 to 10 passenger Long Travel Sand Rails have over 20” of suspension travel and plenty of horsepower to take you on an exhilarating ride. If you prefer a slower pace, enjoy our interpretive Giant Dune Buggy Tour with many picture opportunities. Informative, scenic and fun describes this one hour dune buggy tour covering approximately 8 miles of dunes and 2 miles of ocean beach. Climbing and descending through the most beautiful, impressive dunes will be an unforgettable experience.After your dune ride, you can bump and splash on our Bumper Boats, race on our Grand Prix style Go-Kart Track, play a round of Miniature Golf or take a ride on the Cloverline Railroad. We are located less than one mile south of Florence on Hwy 101.

Three of our party booked the first sandrail trip of the morning. It was a thrilling way to experience the dunes, with some fab views along the way. A bit like a high-octane funfair ride that lasts for 30 minutes! If we go back to Florence we'll maybe try the sedate dune buggy next time for more emphasis on the... More

Enjoyed the tour, but the bait-and-switch & wrong information tactics are unacceptable. We called before we came and, like others have said, got a busy signal for about 20-30 min. before getting through. We asked for a reservation for 6 for the Sandrail tour. The person on the phone said it was available and even double checked and verified with... More

My 14 year old daughter and I walked in at the end of the day and the lady at the front desk was so accommodating. Told us a bit about the the different rides and what to expect. We chose the 30 min thrill ride. You have to go to a different location to get on the ride, but it... More

We brought the kids here to mini golf and ride the go-carts! The mini golf course is challenging and everyone had lots of fun. The go-carts were only 2 months old we were told and were quite fast. Everyone had a great time!

We wanted to do something a little different and Sandland Adventures was a great pick. You have to get there early if you want to get out on the sand right away. Our buggy carried up to 8 passengers but there were only six of us. Our driver was very experienced on the dunes and gave us a thrilling ride... More

Watch a video before you go so you can decide which vehicle is best for you. We took the dune buggy tour and it was extremely rough, like a really intense wooden roller coaster. The landscape is spectacular and the ride exhilarating if you like the whole heart in your throat thing!

My wife wanted to do the Hour Dune buggy ride but since we had no reservations and would had have to wait two hours, I talked her into the 30 minute Sand Rail ride instead, which is what I wanted to do in the first place and there were two spots available if we drove down to the site quickly....

We booked the 30 minute sand rail ride and it exceeded our expectations. I was hoping for a thrilling ride for my 15 and 14 yr olds and it did not disappoint. Despite the dune buggy being big enough to hold 8-10 people it was a roller coaster ride. We were spinning across the dunes, tearing up them and then... More

We rode the giant buggy. Our driver was great! He taught us about the area and told stories about the dunes. We enjoyed our ride!
