Why should you choose the Peninsula State Park Segway Tour?

Why should you choose the Peninsula State Park Segway Tour? The park itself is impressive. Peninsula State Park is the 3rd largest state park in Wisconsin with over 8 miles of shoreline and has over 1 million visitors each year. It is widely known as the most complete in the Wisconsin State Park system. Our Segway tour travels along the less used roads in the interior of Peninsula State Park.

When they swallow their fears, get on, and follow my instructions, 9 times out of 10 they will soon get a surprised look on their face and say, “I can do this!” So who can ride on a Segway? The simple answer is whoever can trust the Segway can enjoy a glide on one. The Segway balances you, you don’t have to have balance. As long as you can stand…
