Owner description: Take control of your very own Segway exclusively with us in Cornwall in two locations; GOONHILLY SATELLITE STATION near Helston, plus NEWQUAY at Hendra Holiday Park. We have one of the largest fleets of Segways in Europe, with the i2 on-road machine, the x2 all terrain off-roader. Experience this unique form of transport, likened to gliding on a magic carpet. Riding a Segway is really easy and accessible to most ages and abilities (subject to weight restrictions, see terms and conditions on the tours page) and most importantly GREAT FUN for everyone. As seen on television and film, from Dr Who to the Gadget Show to Hollywood blockbusters.

Had a great morning at the Newquay Segway, very welcoming and fun staff, no waiting around, went straight into riding around on the segway's. Drove off steep mounds, weaved in and out of trees, across the obstacle course which included steps, bumps, and gravel. Very worth the visit and money.

Well organised, great fun and very easy to pick up. We did a 90 minute experience for £30 and it was very much worth it.

My husband and I tried the Cornwall Segway at hendra holiday park in Newquay as a last minute activity and we loved it. The teacher was really patient and helped everybody gain confidence and find their way around the course. We were able to progress quickly and have some fun on the off road section of the class. We both... More

As Segway pro's (well used them twice in Cyprus!) this was a great 90 minute experience. Paul was a great tutor showing us the basics and giving us time to get used to the Segway, with the limiter on and off. Nice bit of competition between the husband and myself as we headed up the teams for the relay race... More

I've always fancied having a go at this but have been put off in the past by the price. This was a total bargain at 30 quid for 90 minutes. Myself and my 17 year old daughter together with our two friends joined a group on a grey Sunday morning. Started off with basic training and safety followed by a... More

I'm not a particularly active person but my husband wanted to do something adventurous on holiday so we tried out the Segway at Cornwall Segway, Newquay which is based at Hendra Holiday Park. The Instructor was fantastic, ensuring that we had fun in a safe environment. We were given time to try the Segway and get used to it before... More

A fantastic afternoon of fun. First time on a Segway and I want to do it again. All the staff were very friendly, welcoming and our instructor Chris was very good, patient and making it look easy for first timers, so we felt confident to try everything and by the end of the session we were speeding round for the...

Thank u Chris and Tim for making our first segway experience fun. You are 2 nice young gentlemen and went out of your way to make us feel welcome and secure. You looked after our youngest and oldest (70) alike. With the same compassion. Thx.....

Booked this for the children. Very welcoming, efficient and safety first. Kids went off and were challenged for speed and obstacles. Not cheap but money well spent. Coffee was great too! Impressed.
