Anyone do the Fort Wilderness Segway tour?

I've seen some great reviews for the Epcot tour but can't find any reviews for the FW trip. Since we're staying at Wilderness Lodge, I thought it would be nice to do the trip over there in the woods and not pay for a day at Epcot.

Do you know what the cost is?

I haven't done it, but I've heard others say they liked it and you spend more time actually riding than you do at Epcot.

DH and I did it several years ago when it was still fairly new. We really enjoyed it and you get to spend a lot of time riding. Not sure if it's still the same but we rode some trails around the campground and over to the Wilderness Lodge and back.

I received the tour as a gift in October. I really enjoyed it. I had never been on a segway. You travel on several different surfaces throughout the campground and over to WL. There are a couple stops along the way which I won't divulge. We were lucky and rode past deer. Take a camera!

I did both tours in August, and enjoyed the Ft. Wilderness more than the Epcot. I know they changed the Epcot tour a bit in September. Bottom line is you get more riding time on the Ft. Wilderness tour. The Segways are different too (off-road with bigger tires). The tours each cost around $100.
