What's a Segway, you ask? It's a self-balancing personal transportation vehicle, a two-wheeled device that is being used across the nation for commuting and recreational purposes.
While on a Segway Tour at Smugglers' you'll learn about the wildlife and natural beauty that grace this wonderful environment while riding the ecologically friendly Segway, with its renewable energy source. You'll also hear some interesting and fun facts about Vermont while gliding through the beautiful landscape on a Segway. You may also rent a Segway to head out on your own.
One of the first questions that comes up when people see a Segway is, "How do you balance with only two wheels?" The Segway does all the work, because once a rider steps onto the standing platform, the Segway balances itself with a complicated system of internal gyroscopes. The rider's job is easy: he or she leans forward to move forward, leans back to reverse, and grips the steering handles to turn. According to Fortune Magazine, "Using a Segway is so intuitive that it feels as though the thing has somehow been plugged into your central nervous system."
The excitement of the Segway Tour experience is not to be missed. They're so easy and fun to ride! SegRide Tours Ages 12 & older Daily 9:30 am, 11:30 am, 2:00 pm & 4:30 pm.
