The Segway Experience


Have you ever seen someone zipping about on a Segway and thought, “That looks a bit weird, I wish I could have a go?”

Well thanks to the opportunity of experience gifts, you now can have a go on this speedy and nimble machine!

The Segway experience is like no other, forget rally cars and quad bikes, because this two-wheeled little beauty will offer hours of fun, as you ‘hover’ along the ground in a much speedier fashion than you might expect.

How does it work?

It’s hard to believe that the Segway has been around for just over 10 years, with its first unveiling taking place on Good Morning America in 2001, with Bryant Park riding around in New York.

It uses special balancing technology that can be driven and steered using bodyweight and is designed to mirror the process of human walking.  This very intelligent piece of technology can detect the change in balance point, which adjusts the speed.

It’s also incredibly eco-friendly, as it is an electric powered light motor vehicle that simply needs charging by plugging into the mains of your house.

Despite the cost of running one being considerably low compared to running a petrol driven car, Segway’s are quite expensive to buy, and unfortunately it is illegal to drive them on the roads and footpaths in the UK.

That’s where the great idea of experience gifts comes in, as a Segway experience can offer you the opportunity to try one of these out for yourself!

The Segway Experience

At first, standing and moving on a Segway will no doubt be a very strange feeling, having to take charge of this nippy machine by leaning and twisting your body.  It will also feel as if you are almost floating along the ground, which should help to satisfy those of you who still dream that the Back to the Future’s hover board will one day exist (I’ve still got my fingers crossed!)

You’ll be given a safety briefing and a bit of practice time before being set free, and will also be provided with safety gear, such as shin guards, elbow pads, shoulder pads and a helmet.

Once you’re on, you’re pretty much free to enjoy, with many Segway experiences providing some sort of guided tour or rally to race around.


Although Segway’s will not reach the kind of speeds that you might find with something like quad bikes, it still feels like you’re going at some speed, and a type of pace that feels as if it’s your own body doing it, which is extremely exhilarating!

I think it’s fair to say that this is a truly unique experience that you won’t be able to get from anything else, and so having the opportunity to buy this type of experience gift is pretty amazing.

A great gift that will appeal to a wide range of people, buy this for someone who wants a different approach to the motorsports experience, or, just buy for your own enjoyment!
