The Segway Experience With CatsPaw In Fort Worth's Botanic Garden
Are Segways able to go off-road? On trails?
Before we are led on our tour we get personal instructions on how to operate the X2 Segways.
I have been all over the Fort Worth Botanic Garden. I may be wrong, but I don't think there are all that many areas where something like a Segway would be allowed, just like how a mountain bike or golf cart would not be allowed.
And then there are the elevation changes. Do Segway's easily navigate elevation changes?
The information that comes with the Groupon says that riders must be able to make motions such as climbing and descending stairs without assistance.
Climb and descend stairs? What does one do with ones Segway whilst climbing and descending stairs?
Also the Groupon ad says riders must weigh between 100 and 275 pounds. I guess I need to lose some weight before I get on a Segway.
It will be interesting to see how this Segway ride through the Botanic Garden works.
