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 from West Coast Entertainment gives you the chance to practice on these leisurely chariots of fire lest the future overtake you at 12.5 miles per hour. Choose from the following options:
For $39, you get a one-hour segway adventure of West Seattle (an $82 value).
For $75, you get a two-hour segway tour of Downtown Seattle (a $164 value).
Recently featured on KING 5's Evening Magazine, West Coast Entertainment's segway tours explore Seattle's rich cultural past, present, and alien-invaded future. After meeting the guide and getting accustomed to newly acquired seg-legs, tour members proceed with a bonafide glide past landmarks like the Seattle Waterfront, Pioneer Square, the Art District, the Shopping District, and the famous Pike Place Market—with brief rest periods for sightseeing, busker-heckling, or just getting a cup of coffee. Gyroscopic sightseers who opt for the full two-hour tour will get to hear twice the fascinating area anecdotes through headphones provided by West Coast. Tours run rain, shine, or dandelion dust bowl, so participants should dress appropriately.
The West Seattle adventures launch at 9 a.m., 12 p.m., 3 p.m., and 6 p.m. Downtown tours meet at the City Park Pier on Alaskan Way (between the Seattle Aquarium and the Bell Harbor Marina) and launch at 9 a.m. Just like a good Thanksgiving turkey, all participants must be at least 14 years old, weigh between 100 and 250 pounds, and wear a helmet.
West Coast Entertainment
West Coast Entertainment offers a variety of city-centered services that lead guests and natives alike to explore Seattle. Led by intensely trained and well-balanced guides, segway tours weave small groups of riders through urban burghs aboard environmentally friendly segways. The West Seattle adventure heads to stunning panoramic views of the city, and the downtown tour may swing past such landmarks as the Space Needle, which was a gift from 23rd-century French time travelers. When they're not rolling through town, West Coast Entertainment's staff helps customers coordinate private parties, fundraising functions, and family get-togethers.
