This was by far the best thing we did on our vacation! We booked a 1/2 hour excursion and 10 minutes into wished we would have booked the full hour. Driver Dan was amazing! Safe, informative, personable, and a great tour guide. We would request him next time and there WILL be a next time! Everyone loved it ages, 7-49!... More

Had a great time. This was our second visit. Nine adults took the 1/2 hour rail ride. Dan and Mike are great! Well worth the time and money. Thanks again.

Just wanted to thank you for taking the time to write a review for our company. We are glad you had a great time. Our dunes look very different from season to season. Larger dunes can build 100 feet taller from the 1st part of June to the end of August as the sand is drier and the wind blows... More

My son and I took the 1 hour Long Travel Sand Rails ride. It was fabulous.You go up and down these very tall sand dunes at speeds that you wonder whether you are going to flip over at some point. I had hoped to have fun when I originally planned going on this ride, but it was even more exhilarating... More

This is our second time at Sandland Adventures and we have had a great time each time we have visited. We did the 30 minute dune ride and what a thrill. Our driver was great and stopped briefly a couple times to tell us about the dunes and once to take photos. Today I had my 85 year old mother... More

Our driver Mike gave us the ride of our lives. I took 4 of my grandchildren ages 3-14, my wife, & my daughter on a FULL-ON THRILL RIDE. Mike was an excellent driver and catered to the driving to his passengers which turned out to be full-on! My little 3 year old grand daughter Presley didn't even flinch when he... More

We went on the "fast" sand rail trip and what a blast! Mike made the experience completely memorable by giving a very exciting, educational, and safe ride! He was professional, safety conscious and make sure the ride was fun for both new and experienced riders. He was absolutely awesome and I would recommend him and Sandland Adventures highly!

There are a couple of places that rent out Buggys and ATVs that you can drive. We were here twice and both times rented with Sandland adventures. We also went for the high speed buggy with 4 passenger groups. It was super exciting. The drivers are professionals and keep you super changed through out. I would definitely go with them... More

My 2nd cousin visited recently with her son who is autistic. We both agreed that a ride on the dunes would be great fun for him (and us), but were concerned as to whether it would be comfortable for Ben. She had ear muffs for him since loud sounds can be a problem. Our driver (pilot) Bob sensed that Ben... More
