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. Practice on these leisurely chariots of fire with today's Groupon: for $32, you get a 90-minute segway tour from SegCity, departing from downtown Austin (a $65 value).
Part local guru and part segway soothsayer, SegCity guides ensure safe, fun rides on the newest 2011 segways. During a 90-minute tour, these masters of gyroscopic go-how will conduct a training and safety brief before leading two-wheeled wanderers through the streets of Austin, dropping facts along the way. Eventually, riders will find themselves in open spaces where they can get a feel for their mechanical steeds, riding as they please for the remainder of the session. Only one Groupon can be purchased per person, but eight Groupon holders can join forces for a fully customizable 90-minute tour. On-the-go octets can select destinations to create the tour of their dreams, passing by the state capitol and historical buildings such as The Driskoll and the moon towers built by Matthew McConaughey in 1976.
