What a great staff and an even better ride over the dunes! I did the one hour ride and it was terrific. We climbed hills and twisted and turned. Our driver was experienced and gave us a great ride. I would definitely do this again!!

I would have said "what a blast", but someone else took that one! :) It was the most exhilarating, adrenaline pumping, "I can't believe that chicken me has this much fun with this" moment of my life. My son and husband couldn't stop laughing and whooping either. We considered renting 4-wheelers to do the ride by ourselves, but boy, were... More

We had such an amazing time at Sandland Adventures. We first thought we would rent our own ATV but I'm so glad we did not. I you rent your own you won't know where certain dips are or holes and you will most likely be going slower because of that, and possibly getting stuck. We went on the sandrail tour... More

We have been on the sand dunes in Peru, and weren't expecting much from this stop, but we were happily mistaken! They provided goggles for everyone and helmets for the children. Our sand rail driver, Matt, was amazing! He gave us some history and geographical information while we stopped to catch our breaths. Then he took us up the steep... More

We had a great time blasting through the beautiful sand dunes of Oregon. We first thought that my wife and daughter would get sick, but they absolutely loved it. I just wished we had signed up for a longer ride! The sandrail dune buggies are awesome!

We originally thought the tours were full (online checking) but did a drive by/stop-in...as we were on our way to a competitors. The front office staff was professional, courteous and friendly. We were able to get in quickly on the 30 minute thrill ride for 2 adults & 2 kids (boys ages 8 & 10 1/2)! OMG - what a... More

We took the hour long sand rail dune buggy tour. It was AMAZING. The service was excellent. The driver was professional and gave us the ride of our life! The equipment was in good condition and safety gear was provided. Thrilling adventure that was worth the price.
