The docents at Segway of Indiana reveal downtown Indianapolis' multitudinous sights and attractions to segway-mounted travelers during one-hour guided tours. Groups of up to six participants strap on helmets and undertake a segway orientation to get acclimated to maneuvering the two-wheeled vehicles, which glide like moonwalking figure skaters. Tour groups then rove across the 250-acre White River State Park, admiring outdoor art and the hundreds of plants flourishing at the 3.3-acre White River Gardens. Raconteur guides regale tour-takers with historical tidbits as the group passes the Indiana State Museum, the NCAA Hall of Champions, and the cobwebbed XFL Hall of Champions. The tour wraps up with a jaunt along the picturesque downtown waterfront, where travelers can admire monuments and memorials along the way.

The gruesome origin of the Rails of Death begins on Halloween night, 1952, when a passenger train traveling from New York to Los Angeles derailed, killing everyone on board. After the accident, rumors began to spread through New Albany that a mass murderer was among the deceased passengers—and that his spirit still haunted the tracks, a demon thirsty for blood and travel-size bags of pretzels. Every year during the Halloween season, the site's undead souls awaken, frightening visitors as the grounds shake beneath the wheels of a rumbling train.

It's been more than 75 years since Clarence disappeared into the depths of Hagan Park, but the lost souls that inhabit the Horror Trail are all too aware of his presence. The shadow of the man looms over what was already a grim place, even though the tale of his axe-murdering spree is a wound on the area's history that has long since scarred over. But there's other things to worry about. Visitors find themselves inevitably drawn into the woods, following the cries of what they are certain could be their loved ones. Some think the cemetery is the source of strange lights that can sometimes be seen by passersby. And, worst of all, others still think they can hear the rhythmic scrape of a whetstone on Clarence's axe.
