About the Red Rock Canyon Scootercar Tour
Las Vegas' best kept secret! This national park is absolutely breathtaking and there is simply no better way to enjoy the sights and sounds of Red Rock Canyon than from the seat of one of our 3 wheel scootercars! The scootercar allows two people to it side by side and enjoy each others company while taking in 360 degree unobstructed views... all the while having the wind blow through your hair and having the sun shine warmly on your face. Just twist and go... no clutches... no gears... no helmets or special license required. Yes, you can rent a car. Yes, you can hire a bus. Heck, there are tons of ways you can see Red Rock Canyon, but you didn't come to Vegas to do something you've done before!
Scoot City has hand-picked several stops along our tour to make sure you have the time of your life and can take back some memorable pictures as well. Every stop has an amazing back drop for picture taking. The tour starts in a very exclusive area of Las Vegas called Summerlin (named after Howard Hughes' grandmother). You'll have an opportunity to cruise through some really nice neighborhoods and truly understand that life does exist off the Las Vegas Strip.
After about a five mile drive through the middle of the Mojave Desert (of course on a paved road) you will experience the sheer beauty of Red Rock Canyon. Our first stop is the brand new $23 million visitor's center....which is very amazing and educational. Then we're off to at least three more stops in the canyon where you'll have a chance to see where professional rock climbers come from all over the world to climb, and you can even try a little hiking/climbing yourself. One of the most amazing views is when we roll up to High Point Overlook (we'll be almost up to 5000 feet elevation). You'll have expansive views of the southern part of the Las Vegas Valley with almost 70 miles of visibility looking out towards Los Angeles. As we continue to cruise through the canyon there is a good chance you'll see some wild burros and other wildlife.
Total tour time is approximately 4.5 to 5 hours and that includes pick up and drop off time. Actual time spent in the scootercars is about 3.5 hours, which includes driving time and stops. Total driving distance in the scootercar is 35 miles with at least 5 stop to allow for mild hiking and picture taking. Both driver and passenger can alternate driving with no additional charge.
At least one personal tour guide will lead you through the tour, however, you are free to go off on your own at each stop for a set period of time. Your tour guide will also serve as your personal concierge to take pictures of you as well as offer you recommendations for dinner, shows, etc. Just ask!
Scoot City pays for your admission into Red Rock Canyon. In addition, we provide a cooler of ice and 4 bottles of water per scootercar. On extremely cold days, we will also provide hot beverages.
