The Segway & E-Scooter Tour

Your educational fun tour will include a tour guide who will take you around various points of interest. The guide will tell you factual information about the tour you have chosen at either Aden or Haddo Country Park.

Are the Segways the same as Hoverboards?

Due to the steering bar our Segways known as powered transporters operate differently from the common hoverboard. The steering bar allows you to turn with the knees and hence why adults feel more comfortable. A Segway has a more robust overall design with added features of the steering bar to give support for balance allowing a more comfortable and confident ride.

How long is your fun Segway Guided tour?

Please plan to be with the Wheelie Fun team for approximately 90 mins .You have an induction and practice session prior to going on your tour.

Can I book E-Scooters?

The E-Scooters for children can be booked for the tour. Children who do not meet the height restrictions or for riders who are not confident without having handles to hold onto. Riders must be able to ride a cycle with no stabilisers as these are not self-balancing like the fun Segways.

Do Adults get an option of E-Scooter or Segway ?

Adults who chose our E-Scooter and meet the height & weight criteria for the Segways normally try our Segways first in the induction session. After our fabulous Wheelie Fun coaching …..we can safely say that 90% of our customers change their mind and ride the fun Segways on tour.
