Distillery District Ghost Tours – On A Segway!

Go Tours Canada Announces Official Launch of 2018 Segway Ghost Tours

Visitors Offered a Glimpse into Distillery District’s Way Less Historically Provable Side

Go Tours Canada is offering Toronto Residents and Visitors a chance to explore the Distillery District’s weirder history during the month of October with their World’s Least Scary Ghost Tour.  It’s being called Toronto’s weirdest, funnest, date this October.  The tour offers guests a chance to suspend their belief in empirical fact while riding around on a machine that still seems to deny the laws of physics.

“If you’re looking for a serious ghost tour, this isn’t the one.  I’m pretty sure that, if ghosts exist, they’re not into Segways. But people are and I can say with 100% accuracy that this is Toronto’s weirdest, funnest date in the month of October.” Says Aaron Binder, Chief Experience Officer.  “This is a fun tour to kick off a memorable date night or simply enjoy with your friends.  We’re actually encouraging people to dress up as their favourite Orange Cheeto or Moth Meme.  We’re not here to make the claim that ghosts exist but I am here to claim the tour is an absolute blast.”

The 40 minute tour is offered 7 days a week during October with start times at 6 and 7 with additional times available upon request.  Guests are encouraged to dress for the weather and in their Halloween costumes.  Go Tours will be awarding the best costume a complimentary pair of passes to Second City.

Segways Legal in Ontario As Of Today

Segway of Ontario / Go Tours Pleased to Announce Full Segway Legalization After 12 Year Pilot Program

Are Segways legal in Ontario? Click here to find out.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Toronto, Canada – April 1, 2018  – Just kidding.

The Segway PT is still illegal for most riders in Ontario, even after new personal transporters like the Ninebot MiniPro, Segway Kickscooter and multiple other brands of similar products.

Upon launching in 2004, Segway of Ontario / Go Tours Canada quickly became a polarizing topic of debate municipally in Toronto and in the province of Ontario.  After initial consultations and media coverage, the Segway PT was placed under a pilot program in 2006.  Since then there have been no updates to the pilot which ends in October 2018.

“For 12 years since the Segway PT pilot was initiated in Ontario, we’ve been pushing for updated legislation to allow small businesses like ours to operate legally and bring new economy to small tourism destinations across the province.” Says Jason Rizzuti, General Manager of Segway Ontario. “Most people calling up to inquire about purchasing Segway PT’s want to open tour operations like ours or simply desire to get out of their cars on their commute.  Unlike us, few of these businesses are able to operate on private property and simply don’t open.”

Based on internal estimates, the economic benefits brought to these communities through increased tourism would be in the millions.  With the pilot coming to a close this year, the Ministry of Transportation must decide whether to legalize the Segway PT as other provinces have done or keep the current restrictions.

For more information and to submit your own feedback, contact the Ontario Ministry of Transportation’s Segway Project Lead Fazelah Ali – Fazelah.Ali@ontario.ca.  We request your urgent feedback on the Ontario Segway Pilot so the government is better able to make an informed decision, if you have taken a tour with us before, please provide feedback.
