LAS VEGAS At more than 500 feet high, the Amargosa Big Dunes are the tallest in North America—and they're only two hours from the Strip. For an outdoorsy adventure or teambuilding excursion, Sun Buggy Fun Rentals is now offering dune tours, packaged as a daylong activity for groups. After staffers show the group how to operate the buggies and navigate them over the sand razorbacks, participants are free to explore on their own, though special teambuilding events like time trials can also be arranged.
The package includes a round-trip shuttle to and from the group's hotel, or groups can opt to travel by helicopter, which the Sun Buggy team will arrange for an additional $1,000 per person. Lunch is also included in the package price, as is cold bottled water.
A single-seat buggy is about $514, and a two-seat buggy is about $720, with a four-vehicle minimum to book. Special prices are available for corporate groups, with discounted rates kicking in at around 25 vehicles or more; the final cost depends on the number in the group. Sun Buggy can accommodate groups of 500 or more.
