You were a great couple to segway with and it was a fantastic day for a ride by the lake. Your son did very well and it was awsome to see a big smile on his face.

Thank you for your comments. It's always fun to have a larger family group, the personal competition and finding the limits are all part of the fun! I especially enjoy seeing the self-doubters transform to Segway lovers in the first 5 minutes.

We took the 60 minute ride and it was great fun. After you find your...wheels, the ride almost became second nature. So much so that it felt weird once you get off. Our guide was very friendly, helpful and patient, sharing some of the history...More

Hi, we have two supermarkets here. Segways are a great way to explore some areas of Twizel. Short ride sessions will also be starting soon.
