ATV or All Terrain Vehicles are fun for the whole family. Consider it horseback riding with more comfortable seats. The ATV allows the rider or driver to go to areas of the island that would be otherwise inaccessible such as waterfalls, the rope swing from Raiders of the Lost Ark or the valley as seen in The Descendents. Both companies have machines that allow a driver and one or more passengers. Kids have a great time. Drivers must be 16 or older with a valid id but a drivers license is not required.
