Enjoy the adrenaline buzz racing Segways around a purpose-built rally course with this Segway Thrill for Two experience.
Segways are an exciting mode of transport, they are a self-balancing device, keeping riders upright at all times and are easy to operate. Riders lean their bodyweight in the direction they wish to travel and the futuristic two-wheeled vehicle responds accordingly.
The experience begins with a quick registration process and then riders are kitted out in appropriate safety equipment, including a helmet, plus elbow and knee pads.
An instructor-led training session allows individuals to get to grips with the basics of how to manoeuvre their favourite new vehicles. Then, with full confidence gained, it’s time to put those new-found Segway skills to the test and take to the track. Riders will enjoy all the twists, turns and various terrains of the rally track while reaching speeds of up to 12.5mph. Your pulse is sure to be racing as you compete for the fastest time.
All participants receive a souvenir certificate to remind them of their unique and thrilling experience.
This experience is available on selected Monday to Friday dates, throughout the year, subject to availability.

Upon arrival at the lovely Grafham Water we found the Segway pod located behind the bike rental station and filled in a short health and safety questionnaire. We were 20 minutes ahead of the start time so we were able to watch the previous group finish up their session and get some tips. Once everyone had arrived, there were 7 people in our group, we were kitted out with the safety gear, elbow and knee pads and a helmet, and given a thorough safety briefing. We were then allocated a Segway and given some short one-to-one instruction to make us comfortable with controls of the machine. We went forwards, backwards, around some cones and come to a controlled stop. Finding your balance and keeping the Segway still is much harder than it looks! Then the fun begins, we were spilt into two teams and given a number of games to complete which helped build your confidence even further. Then we went out on the trail with the instructor across a number of different terrains, you could really get your speed up at this point (although they are limited for safety reasons) so you were always in control.
Great venue and could spend the whole day there with the family. The staff were friendly and well organised.
