“The ONLY way to 'do the dunes'!!!!”
Review of Razor J's Adventure Tours - CLOSED

Reviewed June 7, 2012

When we rented the 2 seat RZR we really were not sure how exciting the tour/ride would be. There are not enough adrenaline screaming adjectives to describe the ride!! The guide did a fantastic job in taking us to various thrill spots in the dunes that we would not have been able to fine on our own.

Would come back and do this ride again!

We've been to Silver Lake several times and I have always wanted to experience driving over the dunes. Unfortunately, we don't have a four wheel drive vehicle and even if we did, I'm not sure how good it is for a vehicle to drive over huge sand dunes. Razor J's guided tours is a good solution to this problem, as you rent either a two or four seat dune buggy and follow an experienced driver over the dunes.

The process to getting to the dunes and getting on the dunes is a little bit confusing, so it is nice to have all of the up front work and paperwork taken care of. Make a reservation ahead of time as many of the tours offered by Razor J's sell out. The day we were there all of the tours were sold out.

Since we went on Memorial Day weekend, the Dunes were jammed and it was about a 20 minute wait to get on the dunes. Once we got up there, even with the huge crowds, there was plenty of room to maneuver and go fast.

The tour is an absolute blast. The Polaris Razors are ideally suited for the dunes and it almost feels like you are on a roller coaster on the downslope of the dunes. This was one of the most unique and incredible experiences I have ever had. There is a feeling of absolute freedom when you are on the dunes and it is a great stress reliever. Besides, the setting of the huge dunes surrounding Silver Lake and Lake Michigan is just beautiful

I definitely think the dune buggys have advantages over the SUV's and pickup trucks. Unlike some pickup trucks that stalled or got stuck trying to climb the dunes, the dune buggys seems to do a better job avoiding this problem. Another advantage to the smaller dune buggys is they can go into the tight curves of the dunes and into places the bigger SUV's and trucks cannot. The dune buggys also have roll cages and felt pretty safe and stable. Another individual took his two young daughters and his wife and his kids seemed to have a blast.

We rented the 4 seat RZR. It was a great way to experience the Dunes. You will follow one of their tour guides which is nice if you really don't know where you are going. We all had a blast. Definitely worth the money. We have taken this tour the past 2 years and will do so again this summer.

If you have hard to please, active teens or tweens, this is a must do. We did two, two person vehicles and the kids had a blast.

We rented a Razor from Razor J's and he actually came out with us so we could follow him. He was so nice and accommodating (we had a 3 year old w/ us). The views were beautiful and it was a fun experience.
