From their site.....You must be at least 14 years of age to operate the Segways. You must also weigh at least 100 lbs and not more than 260 lbs to operate the Segways. Hope this helps.

I'm pretty sure that you can do it on the same day BUT if the tour is full you will be out of luck. Doing it ahead of time guarantees you a spot.
