Historians credit the invention of four-wheelers to an industrious motorcycle enthusiast plagued by chronic inner-ear infections. Put the pedal to the metal without losing your balance with today’s Groupon: for $59, you get an ATV tour of the Eldorado lake bed from Las Vegas ATV Tours & ATV Rentals in Henderson (a $125 value).
A typical Eldorado lake bed tour takes customers age six and up speeding through vast, velocity-friendly desert sand atop a trusted all-terrain vehicle. Young riders can thrash land grains on one of the youth ATV models as long as they are accompanied by an adult. Although patrons are granted opportunities to ogle the formerly subaquatic terrain, the tour primarily strives to quench needs for speed with a full two hours of riding time. Tour guides refuel amateur gauchos with included liquid libations.
Customers are advised to don comfortable shoes (sandals are not permitted), wear water-based sunscreen or long sleeves to ward off dust and UV rays, and bring a change in clothes in case their first outfit is marred by inclement weather or torn by overzealous stuntmen acting out Mad Max motorcycle battles.
