What You'll Get
Big game hunters often mistake four-wheeled vehicles for four-legged animals, causing countless golf carts to get bombarded with musket balls and crossbow bolts. Prevent automotive poaching with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a 75-minute Segway Waterfront Tour from Glide Dynamics & Cape Fear Segway Tours (a $40 value), located on Water Street in Wilmington.
Rated #1 attraction in Wilmington by TripAdvisor, Glide Dynamics sends wanderlusting sightseers on various two-tired tours of Wilmington's historic landmarks and majestic scenery. The Segway Waterfront Tour commences with 20 minutes of training, including an introductory video followed by hands-on learning in a spacious practice area with your six to seven fellow travelers, allowing riders to perfect their skills in heated games of environmentally friendly chicken. Then it's a tour guide-narrated drift past geographical benchmarks such as the Cotton Exchange, Wilmington Railroad Museum, Governor Dudley Mansion, and the oldest home in Wilmington. Following the Carolinan history lesson, the tour group will wheel-walk down the newly extended riverfront to the recently opened Wilmington Convention Center, where Segwayers can test the building's sturdiness by riding across the roof with anvils in their hands. Every one of Glide Dynamics' cheery cruisers must be at least 13 years old and weigh 275 pounds or less.
