The Segway Experience:

As you master the skill of the Segway it will provide you with an unforgettable amount of fun and an experience that will be talked about for years to come.
What happens on the day?
When you arrive at Tatton Park you will need to follow the signposts to the Segway Event’s Pod where you will register and complete the relevant paperwork. You will then be taken to get kitted up in the necessary safety kit before being given a brief demonstration of the Segway. As you take your first steps onto the Segway you will be given the opportunity to build your confidence up as you take part in a few Segway games, where you will realise the full charm of the Segway. Once you have increased your Segway skills your instructor will take you on a ride in the park where they will show you any obstacles that you will need to avoid, before you get the opportunity to have a bit of freedom and test yourselves. As you ride through the park you will appreciate the fun nature of these advanced machine and experience the unique sensation found only on a Segway!
