Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a motorcycle license to operate a Slingshot?
No, the State of Wisconsin does not require an "M" license to operate a Slingshot. A regular driver's license is all you need.
Do I need insurance to rent a Slingshot?
Yes. However, if you do not have insurance — or you wish not to use your private insurance — Rake offers an inexpensive insurance option.
Is there a Slingshot rental age restriction?
Yes, drivers are required to be 25 and up (this does not apply to passengers, however).
What if I get into an accident while I am out on the road in a rented Slingshot?
Call Rake (920.382.6989) if you have purchased our insurance; otherwise, if you are operating under private insurance, please call your insurance contact person, first, after notifying law enforcement. Then, notify Rake.
Am I required to fill the tank before returning the Slingshot, similar to a car-rental company?
Yes. However, there is a fuel purchase option available in advance, similar to a car-rental company.
Is there a rental agreement that must be signed prior to renting a Slingshot?
Yes. The rental agreement will appear during booking/checkout, where you will also be asked to enter your driver's license info.
Can I call to book an appointment instead of booking online?
Yes. However, you will have to provide an email for a booking confirmation and rental agreement. This will include a valid CC that will guarantee your reservation.
Where do I pick up and return my rented Slingshot?
River Bay Campground & Resort at W1147 River Bay Road; Lyndon Station, WI 53944. River Bay Campground & Resort is a five-minute drive from downtown Dells. Hours of operation are 9am to 7pm.
