A great time for all ages! Our group ranged in ages from 11-77 and everyone had a great time. Nate, our driver, did an amazing job and kept everyone engaged. We would definitely do again.

Riding on the dunes is 40 minutes of fun at a reasonable price. Drivers tell corny jokes but are very personable . It’s nice to get a history lesson of the dunes. We enjoyed it so much we did a second ride.

I would say possibly, but it would depend on the level of the handicap assistance needed. I would call their office and ask.
