What You'll Get
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 gets you rolling on a two-hour Segway tour of Mission Bay with Segway of Pacific Beach.
Glide on walkways that run along Mission Bay and the Pacific Ocean while one of Segway of Pacific Beach's expert guides tells you tantalizing San Diego tales. Since the tour moves along at eight mph, you get to see much more of the ocean and landscape around Mission Bay than you would if you walked. Don't worry about getting the hang of your Seg-legs since each Segway is equipped with high-speed microprocessors, solid-state gyroscopes, and powerful electric motors that keep you balanced. Plus you get a 15-minute training session.
A brand-new Segway i2 costs around $6,000, so it's a bargain to board one at this price. It'd be even better if you could commute via i2 since you save an entire ton of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere and the Segway lane is rarely congested.
Segway of Pacific Beach's circuits, which depart in the Pacific Beach Promenade just a few blocks south of the pier, are custom-scheduled. The company recommends touring early in the day (10 a.m. or 11 a.m.). Call in advance to reserve your spot; the tours typically have about 12 people.
One Yelper gives Segway of Pacific Beach a perfect five-star rating:
- This place is great! We had a blast! – Rob B., Yelp
Hell-raising gangs of motorcycle-riding criminals have given way to an even more dangerous threat: Segway-villains. While the top speed of a standing criminal is 0 mph, Segway-villains can reach an astonishing 8 mph alone, or 48 mph if tethered to a car that's driving 48 mph. Their speed makes them impossible to catch or outrun, and their silent operation confuses police sonar.
It's natural to fear Segway-villains, but the best defense—scaring them away with torches—is prohibitively expensive. Fight fire with fire that burns even hotter than normal fire by mastering the Segway on your Mission Bay adventure. Next time you encounter a rowdy gang of Segway-criminals, you'll be able to avoid their attacks by using classic evasion techniques like the Segway Shuffle, Two Segways Forward One Segway Back, and the Dip, Dive, Shimmy-Shimmy, and Dip.

About Segway of Pacific Beach - Mission Bay
To see the city aboard a Segway, all riders have to do is keep their eyes open. The electric scooters do the rest, balancing and moving in time with each rider's movements. At Segway of Pacific Beach - Mission Bay, guides acquaint participants with the inner workings of their Segway before heading out on a segway rental zipping down Bayside Walk, along the Pacific-flanked boardwalk, and into Mission Bay Park, making all the squirrels jealous. And they provide riders other Segway options, too—they rent the apparatuses for an hour or a day and even host corporate events or parties thanks to customized event-planning.
