Legendary Excursions' wheelmen demonstrate the tactics necessary for navigating unpaved environments and install wheel-hungry drivers inside a 190 horsepower, 4-speed manual-transmission Baja 1000–style off-road racing car. Hop into the passenger seat of a tough but agile vehicle in a ride-along session for a thrilling high-speed ramble through sweeping turns and rough terrain, including several jumps that inch you closer to dreams of driving to the moon. During two laps as co-driver, you'll have prime views of the landscape as it rushes toward you—dust clouds scattering away in intimidation and steely professionalism reflected in your driver's visor.
Those who can handle a manual transmission and wish to take the mechanical reins can sign up for the driving adventure, demonstrating dominion over the off-road course either three or five times. Legendary Excursions' experts will first train fear-conquering twosomes in both driving and co-driving skills before dressing them in racing helmets and other appropriate gear. Once suited up, racers will be formally introduced to their trusty motor-steed, learning all about its controls, safety equipment, and ticklish spots. Then, adventurers will spend the remainder of their one-third to one-half day of exploration voyaging through the exciting off-road track. Partners will be able to decide whether they want to ride along and enjoy a bumpy ride or switch places to try out one or two of the laps themselves.
Legendary Excursions runs its controlled joyrides rain or shine, though it will reschedule in severe weather, flash floods, and meteor strikes. A reservation is required for participation, and patrons should arrive 30 minutes early to prep for a punctual departure.
