Wide Open Reno experience pushes the envelope of an adventure based vacation. Much more than a simple racing school or guided low-speed tour, our exclusive open-wheel tour cars provide our guests with the performance and safety of a modern desert racer, but are comfortable enough for anyone to drive. Seasoned guides lead you through the entire journey.

A daughter visited with husband in February & they wanted to hike. So we went to North McCarran Blvd - followed it from east side to west side (McCarran Blvd circles Sparks & Reno-makes a huge loop-visitors cannot get lost in our town!!!). We pulled off at trailhead & parked & hiked for about an hour going up. The views... More

I had been on the wide open adventure in Cabo a few years back and had a good time. I decided to take my two sons on the one day Reno adventure. The cars we were given were obviously cars sent to Reno for repairs. The bodies were cracked and poorly repaired and all were painted a dull primer grey.... More

They made the complete experience something that we will remember for a lifetime. Our guide picked us up at the El Dorado in Reno and whisked us off... More

I like Reno because it is a quiet city that is fun to walk around in, and the city buses are easy to ride in and go anywhere. I like their shopping centers and malls. I do not gamble. So I go walking and shopping. There is a very nice museum with a planetarium.

First off, these are not some wimpy sand buggy that you might rent at the beach. These are fully Baja capable offroad cars. Tons of suspension, strong motors and full roll cages. My son and I did a one day tour and we had a blast. The cars are plenty fast and the route was challenging and lots of fun.... More
