Firstly the reporting time they suggest is only to mark your presence, but the actual tour will only start after 40 minutes or so. If you are getting delayed don’t worry and if you plan to reach at that time be prepared to wait. We were okay waiting as we had nothing else to do. Just as we were waiting... More

Sandbank offers many different activities to do. The go carts were so much fun. The employees were awesome and they had super clean bathrooms. They even stayed late after they closed to ensure our family got our full time. Awesome place

I took my son and daughter on the one hour sandrail ride. Be sure and dress warm and secure all items in zipped pockets. The ride is a great experience for thrill seekers and a lifetime memory for the kids. Over the four days we spent on the central coast of Oregon this was hands down the kids favorite experience.

If you have never experiences a dune buggy ride on the fabulous Oregon dunes, you need to do this one. We have done this one several times over the years and each time is just a great as the last. Whether it is going head down off a cliff of sand or seeing the magnificent vistas, this can be listed... More

If you are in Florence you have to stop and take a ride on the Dunes. This place has very friendly staff and very accommodating to our schedule. We had a great experience with them.

Everyone reviewing this place seems to think that this tour is a crazy and thrilling. Either I went on a different ride from everybody else or I have a much different definition of 'thrilling'. I was so bored! The beginning of the trip filled me with a buzzing anticipation as our buggy crawled through some forested area in order to... More

I'm sorry you were disappointed in our tour. We do offer two types of buggy tours on the dunes. One is a faster more exciting Sandrail Tour ($35 or $65 per person) and the other is slower more scenic Giant Dune Buggy Tour ($16 per person). Our slower more scenic starts by going down South Jetty Road, then to the... More

My daughter and I decided to take a one hour trip rather than an optional 30 minute trip with Sandland Adventures on Thursday, March 16, 2017. While the driver/guide was friendly and we had a lot of excitement and fun, our time out was cut short due to a flooded pathway. We sat idle for about 20 minutes awaiting direction... More

I've taken every out-of-town relative to this attraction, which, given the hour-long ride that's narrated, also provides a few "thrills" as you take a 20-person sand-buggy over the great "Dunes" of the Oregon Coast. Florence is on the northern end of this 50-stretch and is home to lots of people who camp, ride, hike, and do lots of outdoor activities.... More

We went on the Sand Rail ride. This was fast, thrilling and so enjoyable. Our driver was incredible. We never realized how far the dunes go until we were on top of one looking out across what looked like a never-ending desert. We would highly recommend Sandland Adventures. This was a highlight of our trip.
