The Segway & E-Scooter Tour
Your educational fun tour will include a tour guide who will take you around stopping off at various points of interest. The guide will tell you short factual information on 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 will receive an induction onto the Segways and practice session prior to going on your tour. For larger groups time may take up to 2 hours depending on ability

What is Min / Max number of participants I can book on my private Segway Tour
Segway Private Tours require a minimum of 3 persons including Adult
Will anyone else out with my booking be on the same PRIVATE tour?
Normally bookings of 3 or more that include an adult participant then these tours are run as PRIVATE tours similar to a VIP tour. Only you/your party* will take part on this tour time allocated to you.
The good news is with COVID-19 restrictions relaxing and this activity being an outdoor non contact , we are now running OPEN Segway tours. This means if you only want to book 1 or 2 participants then their may be others booked on the same tour. This way we are able to offer everyone a prime time space which we were unable to do before.
*Keeping with current government guidelines

Price Guide September 2021
Discounts : Our company pays a fee for every rider to the management of the country Parks however for larger group bookings (depending on day,time,convenience etc ) we are flexible so can offer ghost riders tickets but don’t worry you wont have to dress up as one.
Price match : Advantage for all Aberdeenshire customers is our prices are set well below UK market value as we run our family business efficiently but please get in touch if you find somewhere else cheaper and better value for your money.
Did you know…..
A percentage of each rider participants goes towards the maintenance and upkeep of these wonderful country parks we enjoy.
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.
