The Segway is self-balancing, keeping riders upright and in complete control at all times. Made to feel as simple as walking, it offers a feeling not unlike hovering above the ground, making this a completely novel way of getting around. This fun adventure starts with a full instruction and safety briefing before everyone gets acquainted with the Segway controls. Once ready, set off on a natural track through wooded or open surroundings (depending on the venue) to put what you have learned into Segway racing practise. With overtaking sections en route there is plenty of opportunity to let your competitive streak loose! This activity experience concludes with a certificate presentation. So go ahead and try the transport of the future!
Available throughout the year at each of the nine venues a minimum of once a month, a maximum of four times a month (depending on venue chosen).
Minimum age 12 and those taking part under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a participating adult. Minimum weight is 45kg (7 stone) and maximum weight is 117kg (18.5 stone). Safety dictates that pregnant woman cannot participate.
Your experience may be cancelled or curtailed in extreme weather conditions (i.e. ice or snow) which would make Segway driving dangerous. You'll be contacted if your experience is cancelled.

Share your Segway racing time with between six - ten other participants.
Not all venues include a waiting area for spectators but they can watch the riders from a number of trackside areas.
Dress appropriately for this outdoor activity and be aware that you may get muddy. All safety equipment (full body protection and a helmet) will be supplied by the venue. We recommend you wear flat, sturdy covered shoes or trainers and gloves.

Segway Rally in Burwardsley great fun for all ages.. Staff were all professional giving great tuition. I thought it was going to be very hard watching people but after a short period I had it...Sounds mad but the faster you go the easier it is.Get it booked ASAP....Only moan is that once you have it the track is too small.....
Had a really great time and our instructors Andy and Joe were brilliant
Good fun! Definitely an accquired skill which will need to be honed another time!
Good instruction, full body armour provided, new Segway equipment. Take parties of 10. Had a great time, nothing quite like a Segway. Give it a try.
After the initial tuition period and donning protective clothing, we were shown around the course by the instructor and then left to enjoy our session. I did find the course very repetitve and maybe a bigger, more challenging course could be incorporated. That said, we did have an enjoyable session.
Had a superb time on the Segway Rally experience. The activity itself was great fun and easier to get the hang of than first appeared - this was backed up by really enthusiastic and welcoming staff who really wanted to make the day special for everyone who attended on the day. In summary, highly recommended - a great and fun experience.
Nervous at first but had a fantastic time, very helpful instructor the segway was cool. I want to do it again with the wife this time.
Could of done with more time as everyone enjoyed it
What a fantastic experience the Segway is. I would definitely do it again, next time with a few mates. This is like nothing I have ever done before, thrilling and totally entertaining. Fully recommended to all.
Very good day and efficient day, also handled the fact that organizer arrived a bit late due to road closure very well. All in all a very enjoyable day and would highly recommend it.
Having never used Segway before both our instructors briefed on safety and put us at our ease. They were both helpful and polite at all times.
We were given a basic rundown of how to control the Segway, followed by putting on all the safety gear. Then on to the Segway trying to do 360's and keep inbetween the mini bollards on the pavement. After some practice it was on to the course. 4 out of 6 of us had some sort of minor fall - not me. Had a great time.
The tuition was excellent and the instructors were very helpful at the Cheshire venue. Highly recommended.
I booked the Segway Rally as a Christmas present for my two sons, aged 13 and 16. As they were under 18, I also had to take part!! I must say that I wasn't really looking forward to the experience.This was one of the best days out we have ever had. The Segway team (Dan & Dan) were fantastic. It's difficult to find an activity that suits both myself and my sons, but Segway was perfect. I can't wait for my next Segway session.
Following a very clear briefing we were let loose on a cordoned area to put the theory into practice. Having squashed the cones it was on to the rally track, the location of which was a little disappointing, hence the 4 stars. This was still great fun though, spills and thrills sums it up! Unfortunately it all had to come to and end, but what great fun it was.
The day was cold but expectations were high. I was the oldest competitor at 50 while my daughter was the youngest at 15. Our South African trainer had the patter and soon realised the gene pool for this batch of would-be rally-ists was extremely limited. However, from the mid-way point the Segway felt more like an extension of our own robocop bodies and it seemed as if we were thinking our way around bends at speed, up hills and through mud splashes. I never did get to overtake my wife in a safe zone but I came close a couple of times. We returned to the warmth of our car, to a flask of hot coffee and a chocolate muffin elated and proudly displaying our certificates of Segway competence!
Three of us set off early on a Sunday morning to try out these unique machines for the first time. We were given detailed instructions, and helped to learn the simple intuative controls. We were soon confident, and headed off to the short off-road circuit. We were shown potential hazards, shown how to control the Segway up a steep hill, and then let loose to wizz around the circuit. The Segway team took great care of us, and we really enjoyed the Segway experience.
This was a great way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday morning. The Segways are brilliant fun - I want one now. Even my girlfriend got the hang of one and loved it.The instructors were friendly and helpful. Couldn't have been better (well maybe it could have been a bit drier and warmer)
What a great day
