Sitting down for an extended amount of time can lead to leg cramps, which is why most road trips now use stand up transportation such as pogo sticks or steam-powered stilts. Opt for simpler vertical transit with today's Groupon: for $39, you get a 90-minute Segway tour of Tempe or Scottsdale from Segway of Tempe and Scottsdale (a $75 value).
The experienced tour guides at Segway of Tempe and Scottsdale lead fleets of two-wheelers through one of two scenic Arizona cities during an extensive schedule of rides. Guests gear up for the 90-minute tour by hopping aboard a Segway PT with LeanSteer technology, which allows riders to tilt handlebars gently for turns or quickly for back flips. Each session begins with a 30-minute orientation, followed by a narrated jaunt past the towering opulence of JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort in Scottsdale or around the city-flanked oasis of Tempe Town Lake. For safety precautions, every Segway rider must be 16 or older, weigh more than 100 pounds, and create an indestructible helmet by sawing a cannonball in half.
