I am not a wimp, that being said this is truly an adventure if you take the smaller sand rails. Be prepared for lots of not knowing where you are going at high speeds, fast left or right turns, and going full blast up sand...More

My wife (we are in our 60s) and I took the half hour dune buggy ride and loved it. I do not think the hour tour is needed to get a real taste of this experience. I would only recommend this attraction when the weather...More

We called on a weekday morning and signed up for an early afternoon drive the same day, the more sedate option. It was great! Lots of scenery, excellent driving and information, and just enough excitement on the big hills. Definitely bundle up; we had a...More

You won't be at all disappointed or scared on this fun one hour tour! The buggy is big and the driver is knowledgeable and careful. Do dress accordingly and choose a seat under one of the speakers so you can hear the informative narrative. We...More

We did the 30 minute tour, but wished we had done the 1 hour tour. If I had my 5 year old granddaughter with me though, I'd probably opt for the 30 minute ride.

We took a baby in a car seat and two toddlers on the big dune buggys without any problem. You may want to call and check with them.
