Overview

Mobile Entertainment LLC was the first Segway tour operator in the country when Segway launched in 2003. We’ve been evangelizing the fun of the Segway platform as an alternative form of transportation ever since! In spring of 2004 we opened up our retail store, “The Magical History Tour” at our 125 Main Street location in the historic district of downtown Minneapolis. We’ve traveled all over Minnesota and the United States with the largest fleet of Segways maintained in the country at any one location.

What a hoot! I had never tried a Segway before. It took a little getting used to, but they let you practice in a safe flat place and several guides are watching to protect everyone. We were on the tour about 3 hours and went...More

A very worthwhile tour which showcases the history of Minneapolis and the beautiful riverside area. The segway is fairly easy to master and is enormous fun to ride on. Thanks to Ben and Rachel for their witty and informative narration.

Response from Terry K | Reviewed this property |
My memory is the minimum age was either 15 or 16, but even more critical was a minimum weight of 100 lbs. as that is the minimum required for the Segway’s gyro system to sense the individual and then balance the Segway.
