Less prone to explosions, bird collisions, and painful butt burns, the segway has edged out the jetpack as the official ride of the twenty-third century. Practice on these leisurely chariots of fire with this Groupon.
$35 for 90-Minute Beachcomber Segway Tour ($80 Value)
During Beachcomber tour, a Segway X2 ferries single passengers across Huntington Beach after a brief instruction period. Guests leave with a photo CD with 30 to 40 images from the tour.
GW Tours’ fleet of segways and Scoot Coupes glides along the wet sands of Huntington Beach in both predesigned routes and custom carved paths. Before embarking, each segway participant receives a protective helmet and all the instruction necessary to handle the Segway X2, an extrarugged machine with all-terrain tires tough enough to steer away from obstacles and awkward conversations. The popular Beachcomber expedition takes segway pilots past major Surf City sites and across the hard, dark sand of the beach at low tide. While rolling, guides regale their flock with tales from Huntington Beach's storied past and snap photos of the group.
Segway riders then return to GW Tours’ stables, where they receive a photo CD with images of them shredding along like Darth Vader when he’s late to a meeting. Because almost anyone who can stand can operate a segway, tours are a wonderful gift for the young, old, and anyone else with flat-soled shoes and a sense of adventure. GW Tours also offers custom rides and caters to corporate groups.
