Segway Active

From £15.00* per person you can take part in a Segway Active Experience

Gliding on a Segway feels like nothing you’ve ever experienced. Step on and your instincts take over – and you quickly realise it responds to how you balance yourself. It feels incredibly natural and, most of all, it’s really fun.

Our one hour Segway Active experience is set in a fantastic location at the National Activity & Diving Centre (NDAC) in Chepstow, situated around a disused limestone quarry with fantastic views.

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. This discount only applies to the £30/£35 prices (reduced to £15/£17.50) and cannot be used with our 30 Minute package.

Then it is down to one of you to pull the ripcord!

After the initial terrifying drop, you’ll launch into the air, feeling the G-force as you swing up into the sky, 245ft over the steep quarry edges of the UK’s Deepest Inland Dive Site.
