What You'll Get
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 miles per hour: for $45, you get a 40–55 minute Segway lesson and tour of historic downtown Sturgeon Bay for two people (a $90 value) from Segway the Door Tours in Sturgeon Bay.
One of Wisconsin's longest running Segway tours, Segway the Door lavishes patrons with effortless glides through the spectacular scenery of Door County. Each tour begins with a renunciation of four-wheeled conventionality followed by one-on-one training on Segway i2s equipped with lean-steer technology. Participants don provided helmets (or their own) and practice their turns and stops, learning to trust the Segway and its sound financial advice, until they are comfortable enough to wheel out into the Wisconsin wilds. The Sturgeon Bay tour entails a 40–55 minute glide through the area's historic downtown where they'll learn about the area, meet local sturgeon, and soak up scenic views of the tropical climate.
Since its inception in 2005, Segway the Door Tours has given more than 900 Segway tours and trained more than 5,000 people to ride the only remaining breed of battery-powered horse. While today's deal gets tour admission for two riders, each tour can contain up to eight passengers, making it a perfect outing for a large family or walk-weary square-dancing troupe.
