Less prone to explosions, bird collisions, and painful butt-burns, the segway has edged out the jetpack as the official ride of the 23rd century. Today's Groupon gives you the chance to practice on these leisurely chariots of fire lest the future overtake you at 12.5 miles per hour: for $20, you get a guided 75-minute Segway waterfront tour from Glide Dynamics & Cape Fear Segway Tours (a $40 value), located on Water Street in Wilmington.

Rated the #1 Attraction in Wilmington by TripAdvisor, the fun-loving bipedal pied pipers of Glide Dynamics lure wanderlusting sightseers on various 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, which gets you and about five fellow travelers acclimated to your amazing new upright moped appendages.

The stage-trained tour-guides pleasantly narrate this daytime playdate, as two-wheelied wanderers drift past geographical benchmarks, such as the Cotton Exchange, Wilmington Railroad Museum, Governor Dudley Mansion, and the oldest home in Wilmington. Following the Carolina history lesson, the tour group will wheel-walk down the newly extended river walk to the recently opened Wilmington Convention Center. Every one of Glide Dynamics' cheery cruisers must be at least 13 years old and weigh 275 pounds or less.

Customer Reviews

The segway can be intimidating at first, but it doesn't take long to get the hang of it, and it's fun. I'm a 74- year-old woman, and I did the tour without incident. Richard, the owner, does a great job of taking care of you and is an easy-going, fun guy.

If you don't get a call back to reserve, follow up with email. Richard was a great instructor, very patient. When riding don't overthink the process, relax and have fun! :)
