Segway groups led by certified tour guides glide around glistening Big Bear Lake amid the fir-laden foothills of Big Bear Valley. A fleet of off-road segways enlists self-balancing technology to keeps passengers rolling smoothly with an intuitive system that allows for a smooth ride across all types of terrain. As guides narrate the colorful history of Big Bear—from its first human settlements to its dystopian future as a bear-controlled oligarchy—small groups of up to nine bask in the warm sun and crisp mountain air and take in the sights.
Ziplines span across higher altitudes and adventurers embark on a three-hour odyssey across nine ziplines that range from 120–860 feet in length and allow for speeds of up to 45 miles per hour. After a thrilling safari jeep ride 2 miles into the San Bernardino National Forest, guides lead zipliners to a launching platform where they strap in, check their safety carabineers, and speed away. Zipliners also traverse a wooden suspension bridge, where squirrels tend to business from their pine-tree perches and mischievous raccoons await with water balloons filled with the cool contents of the nearby lake. Groups or solo flyers should arrive at the departure point 20 minutes before the tour begins to review safety information and sign liability waivers.
