This was my wish list item on our visit to Oregon. My husband being a gearhead and former go cart and stock car racer was not buying into doing a tour vs renting our own. We did a 30 minute tour on the buggy with Woody. It was a blast. I compared it to an awesome roller coaster on sand... More

A must do for getting a full sand dunes experience! We booked ahead at Sandland Adventures for the one hour Sandrail experience for 6 of us on a coastal holiday trip and were not disappointed. So fun, a little scary at times but I'm a bit of a chicken. Definately felt in good hands with our amazing driver who lives... More

What a fun and adventurous way to see the dunes! We loved it. We took the 30 minute ride. Plan on an hour total, for check-in and driving over to the starting site. Woody was a fun driver, and I felt safe in his capable hands. The dunes are really beautiful. I'm so glad we did this, it will be... More

Went on the sand dunes trip as a last minute thing to do. Wish we have planned it earlier as it was great, and we might have had time to do it a second time!

There are several packages for dune trips. This time we took the scenic/lower speed trip which was about 15 dollars per person for around an hour. The guided tour talked about how the dunes were formed and the ecological effects nature and man has had on them. It was also a fun ride with some great views (bring your camera)... More

Thank you to all of the staff at Sandland Adventures. The office staff are tops and extremely friendly and helpful. The dune ride is going down as top 10 things we have done as a family fun item. Matt is a great driver. He knows how to push the limits but also remain safe. If you like rollercoasters or that... More

I brought a group teenaged scouts (boys and girls) and we had a great time. The driver’s were skilled and friendly. They knew how to deliver the thrills while keeping the vehicle under control. My only beef would be that the ride out to the dunes is a bit long so there isn’t as much time tearing up the dunes,... More

My husband and I took a trip out to Oregon back in May and we were looking for something to break up the drive between Newport and Bandon. My aunt had suggested a dune buggy ride. We found Sandland Adventures here on Trip Advisor and it was completely worth it. We had so much fun! Our driver was fantastic -... More
