What is a Segway Human Transporter?
~ A Segway Human Transporter is an electrically powered personal transportation device. Thanks to dynamic stabilization technology, which uses high-tech gyroscopes and sensors, a Segway stays balanced by responding to your body's movements. Because of its small size, a Segway can go almost anywhere people can go.
How do I use a Segway Human Transporter?
~ When you step on a Segway, you will realize that it is balancing for you. It moves in response to your movements. To move forward, just lean slightly forward. To move backward, lean slightly backward. To turn left or right, simply move the Segway's steering grip left or right. You will feel a sense of power and speed, but you will also maintain a feeling of safety and control. The Segway's technology will keep you upright during any movement.
Is it safe to use a Segway Human Transporter?
~ A great deal of research has gone into ensuring the Segway will provide a safe experience when used appropriately. The Segway has also been evaluated by four independent agencies for safety. When used appropriately, a Segway will provide a safe and enjoyable ride.
~ Just like other vehicles, Segways are waterproof. Therefore, tours still run if it is damp or if there is a light rain. However, if there is thunder and lightning present the tour will be cancelled.
~ You must be at least 80 lbs to safely ride a Segway, and no more than 300 lbs.
~ Helmets and pouches for personal items will be provided.
