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.

Off road segway even more fun than regular segway. Good instructors and some fun races they involved us in. Some improved signage at the entrance would be helpl but otherwise no complaints

Four of us went and had a fantastic time! Instructors were great and made you feel confident with the segway as well as having a laugh along the way! It will be something we will talk about for years to come!

Our three "children" (17,18 and 22!) had a great couple of hours doing something they had never tried before. All thoroughly enjoyed themselves so was well worth the money. The instructors were relaxed but extremely professional . After an initial safety brief and "trial run" they take you on tarmac and off-road with a few team races thrown in for... More

I have been lucky enough to have Segwayed in St Lucia, this was brilliant half way up a mountain great views and nature. So Goonhilly Segway had a lot to beat, I'm afraid it didn't. The Segway is brilliant but here the experience is a little flat. Yep a flat carpark and grassed area. It's basically, learn how to drive... More

I wasn't sure what to think of this, but as a large group of girls we decided to treat our friend for her birthday as its something she'd always wanted to do. It was a brilliant morning out, so much fun, and we all said we'd definitely be back. All the staff are helpful and professional and allow you to... More

Fantastic day out, came as a group of 10, and every one of us enjoyed it. The Instructors were amazing, knowledgeable and great fun, and put us less confident ones at ease! We were all very impressed with the experience. We did an obstacle course, races against each other and off roading. Will definitely be back!

Excellent health and safety training and confidence building before we started and throughout the 90mins. Good to hear the latest news on Goonhilly as we rode around the site. Loved the races and going off track. Excellent fun and... More

Came here ready to get the adrenaline pumping and it did not disappoint! Once the speed limiters got taken off the segways (before hand understandably we had to learn to use them but it was a bit slow!) we had such a great time. The instructors were fantastic and were definitely up for a laugh and a bit of banter.... More
