Frequently Asked questions

How hard is to learn to ride a Segway?

For most people it will only take a minute or two.? We will work with you one-on-one until you are comfortable.? If for any reason you don’t feel like you can go on the tour after the training session we will refund your money.? But for the majority of people riding a Segway is intuitive.

Are there any age limitations?

Children must be at least 14 years old (this is an insurance thing) and kids under 18 must have an adult with them.? The upper limit recommendation is about 70 years old, but it all depends on your ability to stand for long periods of time, being able to climb stairs without assistance and how confident you feel on the Segway.? If you are a 90 year old marathon runner, you will probably do just fine.

Are there any weight limitations?

You must weigh between 100 and 275 pounds to be able to adequately control the Segway.? Don’t worry we aren’t going to bring out the scale, so as long as you can show us that you are able to control the Segway you will be good to go.? If we feel that you are not able to control the Segway we will refund your money for the tour.

What if I fall off?

Then we will help you back up, after we laugh at you of course.? Falls do happen from time to time and most are minor with the most damage being done to a rider’s pride.? We will make sure you are comfortable riding the Segway before we go out on the tour.

How fast do the Segways go?

A whoppin’ 12.5 miles per hour.? Fast enough to be fun, slow enough to be able to ride on the sidewalks without taking out pedestrians like bowling pins.? Unless you are riding recklessly…then we will push the secret button and your Segway will be in turtle mode.

Can I ride if I'm pregnant?

Segway rides are not recommended during pregnancy.? It isn’t worth the small risk of you falling.? Get a babysitter after the baby is born and glide with us for a much needed date night.

What if I have had a few drinks with dinner?

Drinking and gliding do not mix.? If you seem tipsy and cannot control the Segway, then we can reschedule your tour for another time.

What if I'm late?

Riders are asked to arrive 15 minutes before tour time.? If you are late enough that the tour has left without you, we will reschedule your tour for another time.? If you are running a couple minutes late call us at 469-500-2823 and we can let you know if we are able to wait or not.
