Thanks Shawn for a wonderful ride. We brought 3 kids (3, 7, 10) and also my mother-in-law, so 3 generations worth. We did the 30 minute ride and it was an amazing time. The kids asked to do it for longer right when it ended. I would definitely recommend this for a family activity.

This was a work trip we all decided to have some fun. I was not disappointed. It was awesome, adrenaline, heart racing, frantic and intense. Lots of screams. Definitely an activity for the family, business trips whatever. I never felt I was in danger. (Well my eyes were always closed). Go do it.

Have been here twice. In December, the caves were full of sea lions, in September a ghost town. There is a short walk to the elevator to take you to the cave. There is a strong fish smell. Well worth it when there are sea lions in the cave, not so much when empty.

My husband and I rented a dune buggy too see the dunes of the Oregon Coast. It was so much fun. We drove all over the dunes and had a great time. The dunes were so beautiful and it was fun to speed over them together in a dune buggy. If you want to do something super exhilarating try driving... More

Had no idea there were such huge dunes in Florence, Oregon. We found some info about Dune Buggy rides, investigated and found Sandland Adventures. We took the Sandrail tour, with a professional driver and had a blast. Very exciting for sure! This was well worth the time and money, because we had SO MUCH FUN! Great place to go!

We had a 30 minute ride in the 7-person dune buggy. You feel the thrill of the ride in the smaller buggies. It will leave you smiling and eating sand! The drivers are always very professional, fun, and safety conscious. I prefer the 60-minute ride because you get time on the beach as well as the sand dunes. I've ridden... More
