“Ride of a life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

We rode on a sand rail with an expert driver, I believe his name was Dustin, and it was awesome. He had been driving since he was a kid. Very fast, fun, with a lot of drops and slides. He stopped at the top of the dunes twice for pictures. Well worth the money.

“Great fun!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2012 via mobile

We arrived as opened and no wait. The driver was execellent and made the ride a 30 minute roller coaster ride. My son rates this as the best thing we have done this summer so far!

“more sand?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

I guess once you have seen dunes you've just seen them. Beautiful in their own way and ever changing.

“The worst!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012 via mobile

If I could rate it zero I would. Horrible experience. They are overpriced and the throttles on their equipment are governed so much it makes them too slow and weak to even make it up most of the hills. My fiance was driving up a hill in one of their rhinos and it was so weak it got stuck in a rut and rolled one time. Did not do any damage but they said they would have to charge $80 to replace all the oil and the air filter since the oil spilled on it. When I asked why not just replace the air filter he said well it lost so much oil that they would have to do an oil change also. When I asked him how much oil it holds he the guy ignored me.

Would never ever rent from them again!

“The Only Place in Florence to Drive Your Own”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

As far as I know, Sand Dunes Frontier is the only place in Florence to rent a vehicle that YOU get to drive on the sand. Obviously, renting is quite expensive, but if you're going to the dunes to ride, this is the place to do it.

The dune buggy tours are a much better value in my opinion, as the drivers are experienced and have a good knowledge of the dunes. Along with Sand Dunes Frontier, Sandland Adventures and Sand Master Park also offer dune buggy tours.
