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.
Firstly you will be provided helmets, elbow pads and knee protectors. Then you will receive instructions on how to use Segways and will be given a safety briefing. You will be introduced to the training track and games. Once you get to grips with the controls you can take on the rally course putting your new-found skills to the test. Your rally experience will last 60 minutes of two-wheeled fun. At the end of the day you get to take home a certificate of your Segway rally experience.
Segways are a great way of bringing everyone together. Not only that, Segway riding is serious fun. Bring the whole family to ride and see who is best around the rally track. If you want to make Garlands part of a fantastic family day out, Segways are suitable for all ages (min height: 134cm – 4 ft 4′ & min weight 45Kg – 7.1Stone). At the end of the day you get to take home a certificate of your Segway rally experience. Segway family package is a deal for four. 2 adults 2 children / 1 adult 3 children, however you want, so long as 1 adult is present.
Segways are a fantastic experience for stag parties, hen parties and corporate groups. If you want a team building corporate activity day that everyone will be talking about for ages, jump on board.
Our Segway obstacle course and relay races take strategic planning, communication skills and team collaboration, and they’re fantastic for breaking down workplace barriers.
