How old do I have to be to drive a machine?
You must be 16 years of age or older with a valid drivers license. This does not apply to passengers.
What are the age requirements for renting and/or touring?
–Renting: You must be 21 years of age or older to rent a machine, and 25 for a Jeep rental. There is no age limit for being a passenger when renting.
–Touring: You must be 18 years of age or older to sign our tour contract; however, a parent or guardian can sign on behalf of a minor under the age of 18. Children under 3 are not allowed on UTV (side by side) tours.
Are there additional fees associated with renting and/or touring?
A security deposit is required for each rental depending on the machine rented. This can be done using cash or any major credit card. The deposit is simply an authorization to use the funds in the event that the machine is damaged. It is not a charge against the card. If the machine is returned without damage, the cash or receipt is given back to the customer. The security deposit does not apply to tours. However the renter is still responsible for any damage caused by careless or reckless operation of vehicles. Damage waivers may be purchased to limit the amount of responsibility of the renters. Reckless operation or jumping of machines will void the damage waivers.
Is there a cancellation policy?
Reservation cancellation policy requires a 48 hour notice or you will be billed 50% of rental price. Severe inclement weather can waive this policy.
What else is or is not included in the rental and/or tour?
–Rentals include the use of a helmet for all drivers and passengers. The machine is fueled and ready to go and needs to be returned fully fueled and clean for rentals (for us, dusty and sandy is clean). Goggles and gloves can be rented for a nominal fee.
–Tours include helmets, goggles, gloves, bottled water, snacks, and of course, one of our professional tour guides to lead you through the riding area. We guarantee that with a guide you will learn, see and do more in three hours than in five hours by yourself! You are not responsible for re-fueling or cleaning the machine.
What kind of experience is required to tour?
None. We can accommodate people with all levels of experience and tailor the tour to fit each individual’s abilities and their desire for adventure.
What time do the tours leave?
The tour begins when it is convenient for you. Tours do allow a later start than allowed for rentals for those who would like to see the setting sun on the dunes.
Do we have to join a tour in progress?
No, you can go on your own with as many guests as we can accommodate for your group.
Where do the tours go?
We have several options, the two hour tour goes into the dunes and works its way to Sand Hollow Reservoir before returning to the shop. The three hour tour goes to a spectacular overlook of Warner Valley, with some rock crawling, then to the dunes and returns to the shop. The four hour tour goes into Warner Valley to the dinosaur tracks, the old Fort Pearce, amazing Indian Petroglyphs, and then into the dunes on top of Sand Mountain Mesa. We also have tours for Gooseberry Mesa, and Toquerville Falls. You can also rent the machines for the day and hire a guide for the first few hours at $50 per hour to get you acquainted with the area, and then you are on your own for the rest of the day.
Are there different areas to ride with different levels of difficulty?
Absolutely. There are hundreds of miles of trails around Hurricane, St. George, and the southwestern Utah area. We help you determine where to ride depending on the appetite of the customer, the current season, conditions and time available Elevation and terrain can vary significantly depending where you choose to ride.
How do I get my rented machine to the trail head?
We offer a variety of options to get your machine to the area you’ve chosen to ride:
1. Ride directly from the shop. It is legal to ride UTV’s in the town of Hurricane if you are going to the trail head or returning to the shop. A variety of trails can be accessed directly from our shop. This method is very convenient and does not require trailering and loading/unloading the machine. This route utilizes seven miles of asphalt from our shop and takes approximately 15 minutes to access the trail head.
2. Trailer your rented machine using your vehicle. If you desire to access a riding area that is not accessible directly from our shop you can rent a trailer for an additional $15 and we will help you with the correct ball hitch and lighting hookup.
3. Delivery and pick up service. If you do not have the capability to haul your rented machine we also provide delivery and pick-up services to the trail head for an additional fee. With some trail heads only fifteen minutes away and others an hour away please check with us for the fee required.
What is the condition of your equipment?
We provide the newest machines offered in the industry and maintain them diligently. They are clean and in great condition. Our machines are not governed (limited to slower speeds).
