Eating sand and loving it! Our Las Vegas Sunbuggy experience.

When someone says the word “Vegas” what are the first things that pop into your head?  Gambling?  Drinking?  Buffets?  Party?

While we definitely love having a good time, we decided that our last trip to Vegas would be a little more… active.  For the both of us, it was the fifth time that we had been to Sin City and we were ready to leave the buffet lines and the overcrowded strip in exchange for a more thrilling experience.  Vegas offers way more than overflowing drinks and loose morals and we couldn’t wait to embrace the fun outside of the flashing lights.

Ready to get dirty, and prepared for an adventure, we decided to book ourselves an hour-long ride with Las Vegas Sunbuggy.

The Experience:

Nothing could quite prepare us for the thrilling and adrenaline-filled experience that we had.  Thanks to our guide, Malibu (aka Frank) we were able to roar through the dunes and kick up as much sand as Jafar from Aladdin.  Personally, my favorite part was catching air and soaring over the dune peaks at max speed.

Sunbuggy fun rentals offers something for every member of your family.  For the extreme thrill-seekers we’d highly recommend the Vegas Mini Baja Chase.  Your main goal is to chase one of Sunbuggy’s expert dunies.  It’s not for the faint of heart.  You’ll be cruising at high speeds and the ride will be bumpy.  Soar over dunes and taste a little sand.  It’s perfect for any adrenaline junkie.

If you’d like to go at a slower pace or have young children in your party, don’t fret.  There’s plenty of fun to go around.  Sunbuggy offers a variety of different tours that offer all the fun of the desert, at a more tame pace.  These tours will allow you to take in the scenery while also giving you a thrilling experience.  You can even take the whole family and/or office in one of their massive 12-seaters!

The Extras:

Great things to do in Vegas
All in house construction

One of the most impressive aspects of Sunbuggy rentals is that they do all of their work in-house.  The buggies themselves are built on-site and are maintained in the shop located right behind the sign-in center.  The only part of the sunbuggy that isn’t made in the shop is its motor.  We were fortunate enough to get a behind the scenes tour.  You’ll have to check out the video to see just what happens behind closed doors.

Things to know before you go:

While you’re pretty much guaranteed to have a fun time at Sunbuggy Fun Rentals, there are a few things to keep in mind to make your experience as enjoyable as possible.  While it can get extremely hot in the Las Vegas desert, we’d highly recommend wearing long pants and shoes that completely cover your feet.  There’s a strong chance that you’ll be covered in sand once your ride is finished.  Sandy legs and toes can be extremely uncomfortable and you might find sand in un-welcomed places.  If you’re participating in the mini baja chase we can guarantee that you’ll look like the Sandman once you’re done.  The more coverage, the better.

Women (and tank-top wearing men), it’s also recommended to wear a t-shirt or another shirt that will cover your chest.  For safety you’ll be strapped into a 4-point seat belt that might become uncomfortable during your ride.  If you happen to forget a t-shirt, no problem.  You’ll be given your own sunbuggy shirt to use while there.
