Segways are a brilliant team building activity. They are fun electric two wheeled vehicles operated by the movements of the person on board. Learn forward and they go forwards, pull back and they reverse. Then it gets tricky; lean to the side and they turn. It seems hard at first and you have to put a lot of trust in the driving technique.
Instructors look after new users and give them one on one tuition until they feel confident to head off on their own. Segways have two speeds; normal of around 12.5 mph (20.1 kph) and a special ‘Turtle’ mode which is more suitable for beginners.
The best way to experience this activity is in a ’round robin’ format with other activities because only one person can ride a Segway at any one time. Usually two are provided and other activities might include Laser Clay Shooting, Archery and other motorised activities such as Quad Bikes.
All in all it’s a great fun team building event, a new experience for most and an interesting memory to take away.
