Moving at high speeds is a cherished American pastime, much like listening to people complain that nobody cares about baseball. Celebrate age-old traditions with this Groupon.
$99 for an Introduction to Desert Racing ($199 Value)
Riders drive a single-seat, custom-built desert racer during a heart-pounding, 10-minute introduction to desert racing. The vehicles are specially designed to speed through high-desert terrain, easily skimming over rocky sand dunes and bypassing sagebrush shaped like tollbooths. Drivers should arrive at the lobby for one of the four designated start times: 8 a.m., 10 a.m., 12 p.m., or 2 p.m.
Sun Buggy Fun Rentals
Sun Buggy Fun Rentals’ dune buggies shred the sand all around the Las Vegas area. Designed and built in-house, these buggies are ideal for exploring off-road locales—including Vegas’s dunes and Valley of Fire State Park—without getting stuck in the sand or pulled over by the sand police. Customers can choose whether they want to ride with a guide, or maneuver a dune buggy themselves. Sun Buggy also organizes signature chases, during which visitors pursue one of Sun Buggy’s expert “dunies” through more than 15,000 acres of dunes, gravel, hills, valleys, and trails. Other rentals include ATVs and exotic cars, ranging from Mini Coopers to Ferraris.
