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.

I was a little apprehensive before visiting the Cornwall Segway centre near Helston, but should not have been as everything was so professional and easy to understand. All the safety equipment such as helmet, knee and elbow protectors were supplied and double checked by Paul, our instructor, who was very knowledgeable and encouraging. The 90 minutes flew by as we... More

Such an exciting 90 mins - complete beginners but instantly calmed by Paul our instructor who was so friendly and informative. He put us at ease straight away and was by our side throughout to help and advise. Safety quickly and efficiently dealt with and full kit provided. Easy progress through increasingly challenging routes on two different types of Segway.... More

Right from the start the staff put us novices at ease. The instruction was great and the courses just right. Didn't make you feel like a numpty if you didn't get it quite right. The time flew past, was sad when it was over. Great fun, we will be back!!!

The place does look a bit isolated but do not be fooled! The only thing I would say that was negative was the fact that the buildings were run down and both the main reception/cafe and the toilets needed a good refurb but the activity itself was very fun which is what we cared about most. Paul and Poppy were... More

We visited today, having booked. We were greeted and made to feel very welcome. We were kitted out with knee, elbow pads and helmets. We went to the training area for our first Segway experience. I was mega nervous, what on earth am I thinking of but the instructors were friendly and helpful. I never imagined I would be taking... More

Keeping two teenagers entertained is never an easy thing on holiday but this visit made it easy. A warm welcome and comprehensive safety briefing started our session. Two types of Segway are available to try. The on road I2 series and the X2 off road version. The session included opportunity to ride each type and activities were designed to enable... More
