Want to add some fast-paced thrills to your trip? Spend the day on a custom-built mini Baja dune buggy racing over the Nellis Dunes.
This trip is ideal for those who crave speed, excitement and a whole lot of adrenaline.
This tour uses a custom-built desert racer that has been featured on MTV, The Travel Channel, Discovery Channel, G4, TBS and ABC. Each of these three-quarter desert racers was specifically built at their Las Vegas fabrication center for desert racing and can travel through rugged terrain, sand dunes and gravel on 15,000 acres of play space.
After you check in, you'll get fitted for your driving gear, get a sneak peek of the dune buggy center and watch a brief orientation. Once you climb into your buggy, get ready for a fast-paced adventure. You'll travel across aggressive and challenging terrain composed of steep hills, sand dunes, gravel and hard-packed dirt. An experienced guide leads the way as you race through the wild Southwest desert landscape.
The more confident riders feel on the dunes, the more challenging the trails they can experience. Your guide will help you pick among the thousands of trails to create an experience that is exciting and memorable for your group and their racing skills.
No matter the skill level, virtually anyone can drive these desert racers. These off-road vehicles are similar to driving an automatic car with gas, brake, and steering wheel - no shifting necessary. Drive at your own pace: Since there is usually more than one guide per tour group, you can go as fast or as slow as you want. Even if you choose not to drive, there are buggies available with more than one seat.
Coasting through several different trails at top speed is definitely something you can brag about to your friends back home. But the only way to truly understand the drive is to experience it first-hand.
This tour includes round-trip shuttle transportation to and from your hotel, or almost anywhere else in town.
Please note: Dune buggy racing portion is 30 minutes long.
