Segway tours require that you be in our shop and ready to sign up 30 minutes before the tour. This is very important as signing up does take a while. If you arrive closer to the time the tour is about to start and have not completed the signup process, and we have already started the orientation. We will void any coupons or vouchers you might have or charge your card and will not allow you to participate in the tour. It is VERY IMPORTANT TO BE EARLY. Somethings to keep in mind:
– You will have an awesome time on our Tours
– Min restrictions are 12 years old and 70Lbs
– Max weight is 270Lbs
– If you are pregnant or disabled physically, we will not allow you to participate. The liability is too great
– We recommend closed toe shoes and bring a bottle of water
o Not every Segway has a pouch that you can put your water and a purse. If you are with a family member or friend you might have to share. We will try to accommodate everyone as much as possible
– Each Adult 21 and over has to complete the waver for themselves. We will not take Minors without an adult on the tour. Minors must be accompanied by an adult over 21
– We do offer Insurance that covers $6500 the equipment at $5 per person and is highly recommended that you get but it is completely optional. If you choose not to get insurance, we will keep a copy of your ID and Card till the tour has ended without incident
– VERY IMPORTANT TO BE EARLY. Especially if you are driving a distance, take into consideration traffic, accidents, floods, and space invaders but DO NOT BE LATE.
So we have manually created a parking map of the area for your convenience with some alternative locations for parking. In the attached map, areas in green are typically free, but are also often used by other folks that are seeking free parking, so please allot yourself sufficient time to find a spot, get to our location and get checked in. Areas in purple are typically metered, but most meters are only until 6pm, but please check signage to ensure that you are in compliance with any local city or state ordinances. Sometimes you have to pay a couple of dollars and sometimes you do not. Additional options would be to legally park in a nearby neighborhood and take an Uber/Lyft down to our location, or walk if it is close enough. Again, please make sure that you observe any and all city/state ordinances (or rules and regulations if on private property) wherever you decide to park. Triangle Square is also only about 8-10 minutes away and is a very reasonable Uber/Lyft away. It’s a great location to grab dinner before or after your cruise and they have a large, complimentary parking structure. If you do park here however, please make sure to observe any posted ordinances, rules or regulations.
