Minimum age is 12 years old to participate. We do not currently have a maximum age and guests of up to 80 years of age have enjoyed our tour, but we must point out that Segway tours are adventurous in nature and falls do occur. Some physical and mobility issues (and mobility diseases) preclude riding safely. For this reason you should not undertake a Segway tour if you are pregnant, or at risk of osteoporotic fractures or any other medical condition which increases your chance of injury if you do fall. If you are able to walk up and down a flight of stairs completely unsupported by rail, walking stick or other person, you should be able to pick up the balancing skills required. You may want to call us to discuss any concerns.
Shifting your weight towards the front or rear of the unit controls the moving forward and reversing on a Segway and we therefore require a minimum guest weight of 45kg to adequately control the Segway’s movement. For your safety we also have a maximum individual weight of 117kg.
Although we do stop for some refreshments, you should be comfortable being on your feet for at least an hour. You must be able to step on and off the Segway without assistance, which requires physical abilities similar to climbing and descending a step without assistance or use of a handrail.
