What are the hours of operation?
Tour is offered at 8:30 am, 9:30 am, and 2:30 pm daily (4:30 pm tour offered May-August and peak weekends).
Are there any age/physical/health/etc. restrictions for this activity?
Riding a Segway is similar to riding a bike – it's intuitive, but nobody is born knowing how to operate it. All tours offer training so you can get familiar with the device. A Segway is not an ideal mode of touring for people with some mobility or BALANCE issues. All guests must be able to easily and quickly step on and off the Segway without any assistance, which requires physical abilities similar to climbing and descending stairs without assistance or use of a handrail.
Segway riding is not recommended for pregnant women. Unfortunately, pregnant women will not be permitted to participate in these tours. You will practice on the Segway's until you feel comfortable and are ready to tour.
What should I wear?
We encourage everyone to wear comfortable clothing and comfortable, flat shoes as you'll be on your feet for the duration of the tour. We do allow open-toed shoes. Please dress for the weather!

We know that our guests come in all shapes and sizes, and try our best to accommodate all. Because safety is important, we do ask that all riders have the right balance and be able to stand for the duration of their tour.
