Fun Things to Know about a Segway Tour
You’ve biked the backcountry trails, now try another two-wheeled mode of transportation and enjoy an additional, unique way to have fun on the other side of the beach.
Segway tours bring an added element of excitement to sightseeing, especially in an area as beautiful as the Hugh S. Branyon Backcountry Trail in Gulf State Park.
Coastal Segway Adventures offers two-hour guided Segway tours through the backcountry trails with certified operators who will make sure you are comfortable and safe while learning to operate your new ride. Typically, folks will feel comfortable enough to ride after 10-20 minutes of instruction.
You’ll need a reservation (groups of more than six should call 48 hours in advance) and be sure to wear closed-toed shoes. You must be at least 12 years old to participate and riders under the age of 19 must have an adult sign for them. Other restrictions include a weight limit of 265 pounds. Waivers can be downloaded on the website and brought with you the day of the tour to save time.
Perhaps you’re interested in trying out a Segway, but think a two-hour tour may be too long to stand or ride. The 30-minute training session may be just the ticket for you! Guests will receive instructions from the tour guide as well as riding time in a controlled setting.
