Each Segway is equipped with a small tour bag with enough space for personal essentials. You'll be able to choose your own helmet and be provided with a hands-free audio set. Not to worry audiophiles- you're fee to bring your favorite 3.5mm headphones.
Please make sure to bring a bottle of water. Flat, closed-toe shoes are recommended. And last but not least, don't forget to bring your camera!
Who CAN GO?
The Segway is appropriate for virtually anyone 14 and older. All participants must be at least 14 years old and 48" . Minors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult on tour. Unfortunately anyone under the age of 14 will not be permitted to participate.
The engineering magic behind the Segway relies on sensitive gyroscopes. In turn, these gyroscopes rely on participants who must weigh at least 100 pounds and not in excess of 260 pounds.
Due to the risk to both child and mother, pregnant women are not permitted to participate on our Segway tours.
