Sandusky Segwave Tours
Sandusky is a city of illusion, a reverse mirage if you will. Known primarily to the masses for it's record breaking Roller Coasters and multiple Indoor Waterparks, you would severely be selling yourself short by not venturing past the obvious to find the hidden gems located past "the intersection of common knowledge".
In the middle of the renaissance currently going on Downtown you'll find a cool new attraction that's sure to bring the 'Paul Blartt" out of anyone.
Opening a little over 3 years ago, Sandusky Segwave merges two great experiences you've quite possibly never experienced into one, riding a Segway and touring Downtown Sandusky!
You can choose between a 1 hour tour of the West City, or the standard 2 hour ride and explore a recently rejuvenated downtown and other areas of Sandusky. Enjoy the Outdoor Art Sculpture exhibit, historic sites, parks, bike paths, gardens and endless opportunities to grab "selfies" that are sure to increase your "likes" on social media (because that's what its all about these days right?). Oh and speaking of selfies, you'll definitely want to grab one in front of the postcard perfect "Welcome To Sandusky" mural behind the State Theater.
Don't let your fears of riding a Segwave keep you off one! Your transporter is a i2SE, which has a wide base providing easy control, allowing you to cruise along at 8 mph. Unlike those hover boards every kid in the world seemed to have a couple of years ago, these are much easier to control and allow you to spend more time focusing on the tour vs. the concrete.
The 1 Hour tour is $39.95 and the 2 Hour is $65.00.
New for the 2019 season is the "Sandusky Segwave Cedar Point Boardwalk Tour".
Cedar Point Amusement Park, along the shores of Lake Erie, can trace it's origins to a bygone era where travelers would arrive by the hundreds via steamship to enjoy live music and relaxation along the beautiful boardwalk. Over the last few years, the park has been diligently making improvements to its waterfront resorts and expanding the boardwalk to now stretch from the front parking lot, all the way to the tip of the peninsula.
Keeping with improving the guest experience and adding amenities outside of rides (in addition to continuing to build synergy between businesses), Cedar Point and Sandusky Segwave are now offering the chance to take a tour along the boardwalk. Were you aware that the following was at CP:
The location where the Football "Forward Pass" was perfected by Knute Rockne, whom is regarded by many as one of the greatest college coaches of all time.
A Pier at the tip of the peninsula that juts out into Lake Erie and provides relatively unknown views of Steel Vengeance and Maverick.
A historic lighthouse, built in 1839.
The grounds where a Civil War Battery once stood.
Most people have no clue that these important parts of history can trace their roots to "The AMAZEment Park", but during your Segwave Tour you learn all about them in addition to having the chance to get up close (and up under) the famous Magnum XL-200 "pretzel"!
The tours are offered twice daily at 9:30 & 11:30 AM and are limited to the first 4 riders, so its best to plan in advance! The tour cost $65 per person and park admission is NOT required however the parking fee of $20 is required, but waived for Platinum Pass members!
