“Great Value”
Reviewed 6 January 2013

We used Arnies to rent quads for the entire family. The gal at the main building was funny, efficient, and entertaining. When we got out on the beach, the guys were fine. The quads worked well and gave us lots of fun!

“Fun time with family”
Reviewed 4 September 2012

Although the equipment is quite old and beaten up, it is a lot of fun to spend time with the family.
Kids from 6 years old can use the ATVs, it is pretty safe and fun.

“Throughly Enjoyed the Experinece”
Reviewed 12 August 2012

We called BJs first. They were done for the day. Called Arnies and they told us it is much better to rent in the morning. So we changed our plans. Got out to the store at 10:30 so we could be out by about 11am. It was perfect. The store experience was great, very nice person, easy process.

The young guys out on the dunes who gave us our quads and instruction were ok. Not enthusiastic, but got the job done. They let us borrow sun glasses which was great as that is not standard. There was only 1 other family there at the time. You need some eye protection, so bring some glasses.

Make sure you zip up your pockets so you don't lose anything. You bounce around and stuff pops out. Like my camera. Found it though - whew.

All four of us wife, daughter and son thought it was great experience. Would definitely go again and use Arnies.

“friendly staff”
Reviewed 7 July 2012

Nice, fast and friendly staff. The dunes are not for the beginner, listen to the precaustions and take it slow. The sand appears flat then falls off 20 feet before you know it. If you take you time and learn the ropes its a blast, dont let your teenage boy show off his manhood out there, it can be very dangerous. The staff gave us great tips and we enjoyed the days..twice
