What You'll Get
Jump to: Reviews | Courage on Wheels
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 90-minute Segway tour of Downtown Miami from Splash Academy.
Glide on a Segway i2 or Segway x2 through Downtown Miami, while one of Splash Academy's expert guides covers interesting facts about area. Since the tour moves at eight mph, you get to see much more of Miami River, the Brickell Center, Flagler Street, and the Biscayne Bayfront area than you would if you walked. Don't worry about getting the hang of your Seg-legs: each Segway is equipped with high-speed microprocessors, solid-state gyroscopes, and powerful electric motors that keep you balanced. You'll receive training on how to ride before the tour takes off. And unlike other Segway tours, Splash Academy Segways aren't outfitted with hidden spring-loaded ejectors mislabeled as "cupcake dispenser."
A brand-new Segway i2 costs around $6,000, so it's a bargain to board one for $35. 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. Splash Academy's Segway circuits take place a couple times a day depending on weather; call in advance to reserve your spot. The tours typically have four or five people, so get together a group of fellow Segwaynauts and conquer the city in futuristic style.
Although there aren't any reviews for the Segway tour, one TripAdvisor reviewer gives Splash Academy four stars:
- I took the two hour jet ski tour with my sister and her family... The guides were terrific. – 341972, Trip Advisor
