Magic Carpet Glide sends groups coasting along the Queen City’s historic sites and scenic ‘scapes on two-hour segway adventures. After a brief introduction to the segway’s auto-balancing features, knowledgeable guides shepherd packs of visitors past popular destinations, beginning with carefree glides along the Wells Fargo Cultural Campus. Two-wheelers then shuffle sightseers through the heart of downtown to view the bustling business scene landmarked by buildings that reach for the sky and businessmen forming human pyramids. From there, tours breeze past the football stadium and through the verdant stretches of Frazier Park and Irwin Creek Greenway, giving seglegs a chance to show their stuff on long, uninterrupted sidewalk stretches. Gliders then take a spin through the historically significant streets of the Fourth Ward district before ending their stroll on the peaceful pathways of Elmwood Cemetery.
