Doors open Friday, November 21st , at the building formerly known as the All-American Melodrama Theater and Music Hall. Two different tours will be available, including a two-hour Downtown Long Beach Tour and a three-hour Sand and Sea Extended Tour that takes guests to the south side of Queensway Bay. Take a tour from the experts, the only Segway, Inc. authorized Segway Experience Center in Los Angeles. Wheel Fun Rentals, known nationwide for their bike and specialty rentals, also operates Segway tours around the country. The new Long Beach Segway Tour location is their fourth Segway location, adding to their existing locations in Philadelphia, Louisville, and San Diego.
"We're excited to bring Segways into Long Beach,” said Sheena Walenta, Wheel Fun Rentals' Marketing Director. “We’ve been a part of Shoreline Village for years, and we’ve always thought it would be the perfect place for Segway Tours."
Visitors and locals, alike, will now have the opportunity to take a guided Segway tour of Long Beach, visiting must-see points of interest along the way. Wheel Fun Rentals offers two exclusive Segway tours, a two-hour Downtown Long Beach Tour and a three-hour Sand and Sea Extended Tour. Both tours hit downtown Long Beach, highlighting the Pike, Rainbow Harbor, Queensway Bay, and the Aquarium of the Pacific. The Sand and Sea Extended Tour gives guests an extra hour to cross Queensway Bridge to the south side of Queensway Bay to get up close and personal with the bay’s WWII-era watercraft, the Queen Mary and the Scorpion. This tour also provides extra time to ride Segways freely along the paved beachfront path.
Segway Personal Transporters are two-wheeled, self-balancing, battery-powered electric vehicles that utilize an internal gyroscope and the riders' own body weight to move about effortlessly. They’re safe, easy to learn, and a blast to ride. Participants will receive thorough safety training and orientation from Segway-certified tour guides, followed by a guided tour using a state-of-the-art wireless audio communication system. Guests will hear war stories, historical facts, and insider info on the city’s shopping, dining, and entertainment venues. Wireless communication eliminates the need to stop and gather around the tour guide every time he or she has something to say, giving everybody the opportunity to cover more ground and see as much of the area as possible.
As the only official Segway Experience Center in Los Angeles, Long Beach Segway Tours by Wheel Fun Rentals provides guests with the utmost level of expertise, adhering to strict guidelines set forth by Segway, Inc. for the operation of Segway Personal Transporters. Instructional video and hands-on training from Segway-certified tour guides, and a brand new fleet of 2014-edition Segways with tour bags to put belongings in, ensures a safe, professional, and fun experience for everybody.
