“Our favorite activity on the coast!”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

This was the highlight of our coastal trip! My husband and I and two 20 year olds had a blast on the fast dune buggy ride. We all wished we had gone back a second time before we left. As we emerged onto the sand dunes we were awestruck. From then on it was one thrilling ride!! Definitely worth the money and take the faster wilder dune buggy for sure!!

“Exciting Ride with the Best Driver!”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

I definitely recommend the faster, wilder dune buggy ride. Our driver, Dan, made our trip extra fun and enjoyable. He even greeted and remembered a couple of older gentlemen that had gone on a ride with him the year before and loved him (I can see why).

Even though I kept my eyes closed 90% of the time it was great! Our driver Matt was wonderful! If you like an adrenaline rush, this is the dune buggy ride for you. Not for the faint of heart. Loved every minute of it!

“Best half hour”
Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

Awesome. My friend and I stopped to have an adventure and this was the best time ever. Would highly recommend to everyone. Our driver was named Buddy and he was great with everyone. Would definitely do it again next we come through Oregon. From the two Canadian gals
