We've brought family here a few times and we always ride the giant rail. I like that the drivers/guides tell you about some of the history and our grandsons always enjoy the ride.

We were going to do the small sand rail tour, but hadn't made reservations. The big one was open and we booked it. Great fun, great rigs, great driver. I've paid a lot more for jeep tours, and not gotten as much. Highly recommended.

Didn't know what to expect other than a ride on the dunes and oh my gosh it was the wildest 4 wheeler ride ever. We took the hour long ride with a very experienced driver and he gave us the ride of our lives. We went up, down, rifting, side to side and fast. It was wild and crazy but... More

Our family of 4, including 2 adults, an 8 year old and 17 year old took the Giant Dune buggy ride for an hour. We all had so much fun! We would never have been able to experience the Oregon dunes without this tour since we don't own an ATV, etc. The driver and the equipment were very good. The... More

We went on the 30 minutes tour and had an awesome time. Rob was our driver and did an exceptional job. Next time we're at the coast we'll definitely do it again, next time we'll take the hour tour.

Lots of fun, with views that you won't otherwise get of the ocean and dunes. Be sure to eat well beforehand and let things settled if you tend to get nausea. Loved it!

Located just south of Florence, Oregon on Highway 101, this attraction could keep you and/or the children occupied in fun and thrills for hours. In regards to dune rides, you have two choices of excitement levels. In the first place, you can join one of the Giant Dune Buggy Tours. This is a relatively gentle manner to explore nearly eight...

I would definitely request a reservation unless you want a long wait. Once you do so, there is little reason to arrive early. The place builds in 20 extra minutes for you get checked in (i.e. pay) and arrive at the loading area. (I did not realize we would have to get right back in our car and backtrack a... More

This was amazing would recommend the sand rail tour for 1hr. As a person who grew up with motorcycles and someone who grew up with the st. Anthony Idaho sand dunes I was worried that it would not be as fun as if I were driving however that was not the case. This was on the edge of the dunes... More
