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 $25 you get a two-hour segway rental from Half Price Tour Tickets in Miami Beach (up to a $50 value). Customers are responsible for a refundable $200 security deposit on each rental.
Half Price Tour Tickets unites explorers with wheels for two hours to traverse South Beach and cruise down Ocean Drive. After a free 10-minute training session imparts valuable know-how about steering and dodging wild Pac-Men, drivers mount 1 of 80 segways from Half Price Tour Tickets' fleet. The robo-chariots zip through Miami's famous Lincoln Road and roll along beach-bordered streets at up to 12.5 miles per hour, twice the rate at which champion speed-knitters craft scarves, before drivers return back to base.
