Health / Age Restrictions

How old do you have to be to do a Segway experience?

There are no minimum age restrictions, however riders have to be at least 134cm tall and over 45kg (7.1 stone) as well as under 117kg (18.4 stone).

Every participant will be weighed on site, so please ensure you check these restrictions before booking - no refunds will be given to customers arriving on site who do not meet these requirements.

Although there are no minimum age restrictions participants under the age of 18 require a parent or guardian in attendance on the day of the event to counter sign the participants waiver. Any participant under the age of 18 without a parent or guardian to counter sign their waiver will not be permitted to ride.

Is there an upper age limit?

No, however all participants must be fit and healthy. If a participant has any concerns about their health they must contact their GP before booking.

I have an injury or illness can I still participate?

If you are not in good health you should NOT participate.

We are not medically trained professionals and therefore cannot comment on indvidual cases, therefore we so strongly recommend you consult your doctor if you have any concerns about your health.

Are there any other health restrictions?

Yes, all pre-existing medical conditions must be declared before riding a Segway. Falls from a Segway are possible and if you have anything in your medical history that might be affected by a fall we recommend you do not take part. 

Participants definitely should not ride if they are:

  • pregnant
  • under the influence of alcohol or drugs
  • suffering from conditions such as (but not limited to) heart disease or epilepsy
