DOES THE PHRASE “TEAM BUILDING” INSPIRE EYE ROLLING AND GENERAL SKEPTICISM FROM YOUR WORKPLACE COLLEAGUES?
Have you been looking for a fresh new approach to team-building that will actually be fun? Look no further. Segway Scavenger Hunts are sure to win over even the most seasoned cynic! Aside from the fact that virtually everything is more fun on Segways or Scooters, here are three reasons why your company’s employees will be talking about this Scavenger Hunt for years to come.
San Francisco is an irresistibly beautiful, history-rich city and there’s no better way to explore it than on a Segways or Scooters.
Segways inspire joy. We’ve seen more than one rider giggle uncontrollably just by gliding around town. Talk about stress reduction!
Collaboration happens naturally when people are happy. The Segway Scavenger Hunts are a competition among teams but within each team, folks happily put their heads together to solve the clues that lead them to the next destination—where more clues await.
Segways are easy to ride and we ensure that everybody rolls safely by providing training before the adventure begins.

Full list of rider requirements listed in the FAQ Section Please read before booking.
SCOOTER GUESTS NOTE: On some hills the scooter will require a bit of “kick” to maintain momentum. The electric motors are helpful on the hills but are not strong enough to propel heavier guests up some slopes. Be prepared to kick.
If you have never ridden a bike this may not be the activity for you. Riding a scooter requires side to side balance similar to riding a bike.

NOTE: If you have never ridden a bike this may not be the activity for you. Riding a scooter requires side to side balance similar to riding a bike.
The equipment recap and skills overview session provides riders with a quick overview of the scooter controls, knowledge, and experience needed to safely operate the Scooters. You will be guided through a low speed ride and an emergency stop to ensure a safe, enjoyable experience.
