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 mph: for $35, you get a guided Segway tour (up to a $65 value) from Red Rose Segway in Lancaster.
Red Rose Segway motors awestruck day trippers through the historical and artistic sites of Lancaster, letting them explore the city with fully narrated and guided tours and a set of futuristic wheels. Tour takers can choose from three Segway-induced tours, including the Lancaster City tour, which showcases the city’s historic, modern, and postmodern sites. Those looking to add a wily, yet sensitive specter to their entourage can opt for the Ghosts & Graveyards tour, an exploration of Lancaster’s cemeteries, graveyards, and more supernatural sites, while the more artistically inclined can steer their trusty bi-peds toward the Lancaster Arts tour, where eyes can absorb local street murals, galleries, shops, and public art.
Before embarking on the 90-minute trek, guides provide free Segway and safety orientations, letting riders get more comfortable with their robo steeds through hands-on training and practice time.
Red Rose Segway also encourages skeptical tenderfoots to stop in and try out a Segway for a brief free trial to experience the ease and elven magic of these majestic autobeasts.
