We have 12 off-road Segways, a custom built HQ, training facilities and an off-road course. Each driving adventure lasts an hour, starting with full instructions and a safety briefing on our flat training zone. This gives you the opportunity to get to grips with your Segway in a safe environment. Once you’ve become a competent rider, you’ll be unleashed on our off road tour around the quarry and activity centre at Chepstow.

*Please note that we also offer 30 minute packages and further discounted rates if you are booking three or more places. The standard 1 hour price is £35 per person, the price for 3 people or more is £30 per person.
