Had one of the best days of our vacation yet today with sand land adventures. We went out on a sand rail with my wife and 7 year old daughter and 3 year old son. It was an experience of a lifetime. Our driver Gage couldn’t of been any better he gave us a hell of a ride!! While also stopping and tell us a little history. We will definitely be going back. Thanks Gage!!

Our driver Gage was amazing! He was very intuitive about the passengers in our group and made it fun for all...4 years old up to adult. Definitely schedule the one hour tour..you get to enjoy the dunes and the beach!

Sandland employees sold our family the wrong dune buggy ride (we're still not sure how that happened), directed us to the wrong pick-up location (where we waited for a half-hour), and refused to take accountability for their error. Turns out they mistook me for another customer! Mistakes happen, but every time we attempted to explain that they had mixed up our order, they shut us down and even implied that it was our fault for not knowing the difference between the different types of tickets they use. The fact that the two people they mixed up were the only two people of color at the establishment at the time of purchase may or may not have been at the heart of their error. To make matters worse, a second Sandland employer came over and told us that he didn't want to hear our talking anymore and to "hit the road". They eventually gave us a refund, but not before their behavior made our children cry and we were humiliated in the process.

This is our second time on the Sandrail "rollercoaster" and we loved it just as much as we did the first time. I went with four kids ages 3-13. Thankfully my 3 yr old daughter is fearless because this ride can be pretty intense sometimes. My 7 yr old said he would give up all the money in his piggy bank just to go on this ride again. Gage our driver did an awesome job of making things exciting in the beginning but also easing us into it. Once he realized we were ready for bigger things, he gave us an awesome ride. We all squealed a ton and loved it. I also thought Gage did a great job giving us history and details about the area any time we had to stop for just a second. It really makes you appreciate where you are. I do have to say, last time we went, only one buggy went at a time and this time two went at the same time on the same path. I'm glad we were in the lead car, because I'm sure it wasn't as adventurous for the car behind us. I bet it was more fun for us not knowing where our driver would take us next, made it more exciting.
