We did the one hour sand rail tour, which turned out to be one of the most fun things I've ever done! After getting strapped in they speed up and down the dunes, sometimes straddling the sides. The buggy goes up to 60 mph as it zips all around. You think you'll flip over at times because you're just clinging to the edges of the dunes, but you never do. We had beautiful weather the day we did it. At one point they take you along the beach, and we saw a seal in the water just looking at us as we cruised by. This tour was nothing but fun and much more exciting than I expected. Definitely worth the trip.

This was highlight of trip. Six folks took a dune buggy up & down the sand dunes. Great fun
Sandland staff were great, friendly. They made sure we were strapped safely in dune buggy. Made sure we enjoyed the ride, took time to get pictures, very engaging

The sand-dunes buggy ride was super fun, even though we couldn't see much because of the foggy conditions. Best to go there after 11 a.m. I guess, we went at 9:30 a.m. and the visibility was not great.
Take your jackets along...

The one hour fast buggy tour was the best thing we did on this trip. Our driver was Matt who did all kind of stunts. Before starting off he made sure all of us were properly harnessed. It was exciting and fun. Would definitely recommend doing this if you are in Florence. Make sure to wear a jacket and cover your mouth/nose and ears..I think this was more fun than riding your own ATV.

I was a little reluctant about this due to the cost and not being sure if my wife or youngest would enjoy this. However, my wife and four kids, ages 8-17, absolutely loved our sandrail ride on the dunes. Great combination of thrills and beauty. My 8 yr old was giggling the entire time.
