Who Can Segway?
Segway is a wonderful family activity and something that all generations can enjoy together. There are few other things to do that give delight to children, parents and grandparents – all at the same time!
Segway’s are self-balancing and gentle: the rider needs no skill or experience. In fact, the less you think about it, the quicker you get the hang of the incredible magic carpet experience! We teach ‘000s of people a year to Segway, and love to get “gliders” up and moving in minutes. Our guides are friendly, relaxed and skilled. They also know the best routes and the secret paths, so you will get the most out of your Segway Experience.
Our Segways are off-road so are well equipped for the rough and challenging terrain at our sites in Scotland.
Too young? Being able to ride a Segway is actually a weight thing – the Segway needs to pick up slight changes in body weight via its footpad, in order to get instructions. Children under 45kg will find this a challenge. That’s about 7 years old.
If in doubt, then come along and see how your child gets on. At the end of the day, it’s the guides decision (we operate on hilly terrain, and if the child can’t use weight to stop the segway, that could be a problem!).
Too old? Never!
Too heavy? The maximum load on a Segway is 175kg.
