19th May was an exciting day at Downtown East as Jackie Chan attended GoGreen’s flagship shop’s launch!
Coming on board Downtown East as part of its exciting programming is Gogreen, the exclusive distributor for electric and non-electric personal mobility devices (PMD) from Segway and Yvolution.
Guests now have the option of another choice activity to spend quality time with family and friends here at Downtown East.
The launch also included the World’s First Segway vending machine where a Segway product can be dispensed instantly, offering ultimate convenience to guests to explore the surroundings.
The Launch (featuring Jackie Chan!)
Guests, media and members of the public gathered around GoGreen’s store to catch a glimpse of Jackie Chan! He was welcomed by a lion dance troupe and joined VIP guests for the ribbon cutting ceremony and official launch of the store.
Later on, Jackie Chan also did a tour of the shop and was introduced by GoGreen staff to the various devices available for sale, for both adults and children. He ended off this short tour by signing some of the shop’s PMDs on display.
Prior to the launch, media guests were also offered the opportunity to try out some of the PMD devices and GoGreen staff were on hand to offer tutorials on the devices.
When enquired, the staff informed me on some key specifications of the PMDs including the speed limit of the devices (18km/h) and the usage of the phone application which can control one’s PMD. Some features include parental control on speed limits when children are using the device and direction control with the application. Guests who rent these PMDs for leisure will also be offered a tutorial prior to utilizing them as well.
Services for the Public
These PMDs are available for rental for families and friends to explore the nature parks and tropical attractions around Downtown East, some of which include:
