Learn History on a Segway Tour

Did you know, Minneapolis is home to “the Niagara of the West?” That flour mills have exploded all over the city? Or that the logging industry included a dangerous job for “boom pirates?”

Learn all of this, and more, while riding a Segway! As the weather gets warmer, and we get closer to summer, kids are eager to get out of school and get outside. Our Magical History Tour is the perfect solution.This tour is both fun and educational, and covers the history of Minneapolis along the Mississippi River from the 1600s to today.

Glide along the riverfront while learning what makes our city unique. This is the best time to get a group together for a private tour, whether as a field trip, or just a fun way to spend an afternoon. Any group of 12 or more automatically becomes a private tour, but we can make any tour private for an additional fee. Everyone in the group must be at least 12 years old. If you’re a smaller group, you can join one of our public tours, they leave daily at 9:30am and 2:30pm.

Turn any day into an adventure with a Segway tour. Give us a call, and book a tour today!

Ninja Warrior Field Trips – Not Too Late to Save the Date!

Conquer Ninja Warrior Field Trips are the hit of the season. It gives students the chance to experience real ninja warrior obstacles and receive coaching from a real ninja warrior coach. The field trip allows students to be active and engaged while using their muscles and brain to complete obstacles for their level. Our field trips are structured events that include:

1- Instruction – We divide your group into smaller groups to learn how to use the warped wall, to balance on the slack line, run the quintuple steps and conquer the monkey bars.

2- Open practice time – Now it’s time for them to practice on the obstacles using the skills they just learned. Students can practice on any obstacle they wants, as many times as they want with the help our of ninja warrior coaches.

3- Competition time – For those that want to put their learned skills to the test, we have a warped wall challenge to see if students can grab a BOGO to come back to the gym again. We run a timed obstacle course race to see how fast they can get through the course. We can even do head to head relay races and balance challenges. For those that don’t want to compete, they can continue on with open practice time.

We have been told over and over again from organizers and students, that Conquer Ninja Gyms is the field trip of the season. They ask to come back every year and organizers love the ease of setting up the field trip, and how active students are. Set your time up today!
