What is a Segway and how does it work?
The Segway PT (Personal Transporter) is the first of its kind - a self balancing personal transportation device designed to go anywhere people can go. Easy to use and operate, the two-wheeled Segway PT uses a process called dynamic stabilization and sports 5 high tech gyroscopes that monitor your center of gravity 100 times/second and automatically respond to your body's movements. To move forward, the rider simply leans forward. To stop or move backwards, the rider leans back slightly. It has a top speed of 12.5 miles per hour (20 km per hour). Not only is it smart and effective transportation, it is more fun than you can imagine.
How do I learn how to ride a Segway PT?
Safety is our #1 priority at The Segway Adventure so all first time customers are required to take a 20-30 minute on board training session to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience. Riders are also trained on safe Segway operation and the 'rules of the road' policy. Riders that do not follow our policies will not be allowed to ride.
What are the tour requirements?
Must be at least 12 years old and weigh between 75-280 lbs.
Sign a waiver (under 18 - a waiver must be signed by accompanying parent or guardian).
Satisfactorily complete the Segway training with an instructor and show understanding and willingness to comply with your Tour Guides and follow our policy of safety and courtesy to fellow pedestrians. All participants must wear a helmet.
Please Note: All tour participants must have the ability to be able to stand for the period of time the tour will last, with short breaks en route, and be able to step on and off the Segway without assistance. This requires physical abilities similar to climbing and descending stairs without assistance or use of a handrail. Some physical and mobility issues (and mobility diseases) preclude riding safely. Please call ahead to discuss.
What should I wear?
Dress comfortably and appropriately for the weather. Closed-toe shoes are recommended but sandals and flip-flops are ok. High heels are not permitted! And in the summer, don't forget your sunscreen!
Congratulations! However, safety is our #1 concern, so for obvious reasons pregnant women are NOT allowed to ride.
