When sensor technology for humanoid robots becomes advanced enough to systematically eliminate human life, real human beings will have an eight mph head start on their Segways. Today’s Groupon lets you tour the town with a discoverer’s eyes and a Robocop’s foot-wheels. For $20, you get a choice of one of four 60-minute tours with Segway Experience of Kansas City (an up to $50 value). For safety reasons, this Groupon is valid for riders weighing less than 350 pounds aged 12 and older. Children aged 12 to 17 years old must also have a waiver signed by a parent or guardian.
Your choice of Segway tours are:
- Urban Journey: Starting from palatial Union Station, explore Kansas City’s most treasured historical landmarks, including Liberty Memorial (the nation’s only World War I museum), before gliding up to the observation deck for one of the best views of this thriving, ever-changing Midwestern metropolis. ($40 value)
- Segway Safari: Tour the Kansas City Zoo by Segway, baffle Dumisani and his pride of lions with your curious mode of transportation, and bump through the Australian outback surrounded by bemused red kangaroos riding their own Segways. ($50 value, extra $11.50 admission fee required)
- Plaza: Starting from the historic Courtyard Marriott, glide through Mill Creek Park and find out why KC is the City of Fountains before continuing on through the stunning Spanish-inspired architecture and artwork of Country Club Plaza. ($50 value)
- Union Station: Tour the Station’s 900 Beaux Arts–inspired rooms and learn the incredible history of the structure that helped put Kansas City on the non-piratical map, as well as what it was like during its heyday. ($40 value)
Available Tuesday through Sunday, Segway Experience’s tours are a game-changing way to sightsee Kansas City for families, out-of-town visitors, and time travelers with a broken-down DeLorean. Don’t worry about getting the hang of your Seg-legs, though. Each Segway is equipped with high-speed microprocessors, solid-state gyroscopes, and powerful electric motors that keep you balanced. Call ahead to reserve your Segway tour, and roll through KC while absorbing its history and beauty without the use of a shopping cart or hamster-propelled roller shoes.
In the event of bad weather, tours will be rescheduled.
