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.

I’m here with 25 NY students for a conference and we had such an amazing day with great guides who made the experience fun. I was terrified to start and they took the time to show us how to use the Segway. Best guides!

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.
