The Thrill Seekers Vision of a Weekend Getaway in Las Vegas!
When most people envision Las Vegas they think about the casinos, star studded shows, the massive buffets the city is so famous for, shopping and partying until the wee hours of the morning. We say “been there done that” and it’s time to get into a heart pumping vacation adventure, burn off some energy and have a fantastic time exploring beyond the strip. Like everything else about Vegas, there are a lot of over the top adventures to be had outside of town that are sure to get your adrenaline pumping.
If you’re an active thrill seeker, the Las Vegas terrain won’t disappoint! You can take a variety of tours through Red Rock Canyon, the spectacular Mojave Desert’s most visually stunning attraction, checking out ancient petroglyphs and Indian roasting pits, take a helicopter ride along the west rim of the Grand Canyon or for a aerial view of the Vegas landscapes, tandem skydiving offers a mind numbing thrill through a 60 second free fall, an adrenaline rush that turns into a tranquil parachute descent.
Well, we’ve saved the best for last; Sun Buggy desert racing!
One of the most popular, thrilling, bone rattling experiences in Nevada is just 15 minutes outside of Las Vegas; hitting the dunes in a Sun Buggy desert racer. The Sun Buggy’s Las Vegas facility offers a variety of dune tours but if you’re looking for a mind blowing adventure travel experience, check out their Mini Baja Chase, guaranteed to be the craziest thing you’ve ever done! Sun Buggy’s make tearing up the desert in ATV’s look like child’s play and is not for the faint of heart! Best of all Sun Buggy’s are custom made to handle any crazy maneuvers you put them through; you can even roll them without getting hurt, they’re literally built for a beating.
There is a little training involved before you can take over the wheel – and we do mean little! After just a 15 minute lesson they’ll give you your helmet, strap you into your Sun Buggy and you’re good to go. You’ll be racing through 15,000 acres of almost moon surface like desert terrain, through one of the most death defying off road courses in the country, chasing your guide at full throttle through the desert at up to 50 mph. You’ll be racing through 35 awesome miles of your adrenaline rushing, 90 minute ride, trying to keep up with your guide, speeding through washed out river beds, handling every crazy twists and turn, feeling every bump, taking 80 foot hills with drops so steep they’re terrifying and exciting at the same time.
What makes the Sun Buggy experience even more fun is that they’re easy to drive and safe, with a center of gravity that is lower than typical ATVs, and their aren’t any front breaks, meaning you don’t need to worry about stepping the breaks and not being able to steer. With the Sun Buggy’s special safety harnesses you can literally blow a tire or run the buggy up a tree without getting hurt. Best of all, the people providing the Sun Buggy rental expect you to bang it up; it wouldn’t be nearly as much fun if you didn’t, which is one of the many reasons 15,000 people visit from around the world every year for this one of a kind, exhilarating experience. There are a variety of Las Vegas Sun Buggy tours that are more laid back then the Mini Baja race as well, including the Las Vegas Family Fun Dune Romp and other more leisurely scenic tours, but if you consider yourself a thrill seeker go for the Mini Baha Chase; you won’t be sorry you did!
