What You Can Expect

Nellis Dune Buggy Tour

Nellis Dune Buggy Tour

Following pickup at your Las Vegas hotel, travel to a 15,000-acre (6,070-hectare) off-road recreation area not far from the Las Vegas Strip.

Upon arrival at the site, meet your local guide and receive a safety briefing and orientation. The buggies are custom-built to handle the rugged Nevada terrain and are equipped with seat belts and roll cages; it is your responsibility to operate the vehicle safely. 

Don your helmet and safety goggles, then set off over the rugged desert in. Pilot your buggy over challenging terrain, wearing a full-face mask and 4-point restraint harness at all times. Stop at Rattle Snake Cliffs and Look Out Dune, from which you will be able to see the Strip clearly. Opt to follow your guide to the Sony Motorstorm course to take a practice lap.

Once your 30-minute adventure has concluded, return to the base and transfer back to your Las Vegas hotel. 

Please Note: If you book a 2-seater buggy with an odd number of passengers you'll receive a 1-seat buggy for the additional passenger. The price displayed is a per person rate. Your total tour duration includes hotel pickup and drop-off. Your total ride time is approximately 30-minutes. You will not be able to switch drivers during this tour. If each passenger wishes to drive, you must book 2 buggies.

Excellent fun - so exhilarating - true adrenaline rush! Guides all so friendly - driver was even early to pick us up on the day! Handing out free bottled water the whole trip and even gave you a free digital photo of your group. I would love to go again! Highly recommending anyone to try this!

This was the second time my brothers and I took this tour and it was even better than the first! We had a great time and our guide was great. Knowing we had done it before, he ask that "since this is a chase" would you like me to just let 'er rip? We of course agreed! Aside from a mechanical problem on one buggy near the end of the run (he, they're dune buggies and get abuse) we had an amazing run and will do it again next year. Gotta admit, though, the body does take a beating!!! Worth every penny!!!!!

The buggies were fun! We were happy at first, but once we got on the track, my mom was screaming like a little girl! We went on 2 times and it was a lot of fun!

The Nellis Dune Buggy ride was a great way to do something special with my son. It was a blast! The tour guides were so extremely helpful, fun, and very nice. I would recommend bringing a pair of gloves if you are driving, as for my hands got some blister’s from trying to handle the wheel, but well worth it. This is definitely an exciting memory that we will never forget!!
