Segway Experience with Garlands…

Segways are available at our Midlands site only 30 minutes from Birmingham, Nottingham, Leicester & Coventry

Ever been on a Segway? It automatically responds to body movements, meaning it’s the closest thing to riding a machine that’s actually part of you. And in our opinion it’s just about the most fun you can have on two wheels (without doing an ‘Evel Knievel’).

Segway riding is easy to learn; lean forward to go forwards, lean back to brake or go backwards, and move the control shaft to the left or right to steer, it’s as simple as that! This activity is fantastic for stag do and hen do, or as part of a team building challenge for corporate events. We can organise team challenge obstacle courses or an off-road rally (these little devils can whizz along at 13mph).

The Segway ‘Human Transporter’ is a two-wheeled, all terrain, self-balancing transportation device. It automatically responds to body movements, meaning that you are totally in control at all times (it’s like it becomes part of you).

Dynamic stabilisation, solid-state gyroscopes, tilt sensors and high-speed microprocessors sense your centre of gravity and instantaneously make minute adjustments, so your Segway won’t fall over. So once you’ve got your head around the controls, you’re away.

Flat, open grassy areas, up and down hills, around obstacles…your Segway will go anywhere you want to take it.
