Go Ape Forest Segways

This recent addition to the range of adrenaline fuelled activities Go Ape’s Forest Segways offer you a novel way to explore woodland paths on wheels.  Not content to stick with aerial assault courses & zip wires, Go Ape have now branched, (sic) out into motorized two wheeled vehicles for an unusual experience that is suitable for adults & children alike, (10 years +).

Forest Segways; The Experience

These self balancing electric transporters are deceptively easy to pick up & before you know it, you are out of training mode and whizzing around the forest.  With a Forest Segway guide on hand at all times, you’ll feel comfortable exploring the forest with this latest mode of transport.  Go to Go Ape Forest Segways to find out more information on age & weight restrictions in place for this motorised two wheeled vehicle.

Go Ape Forest Segway; Tried & Tested

Once we’d found our Forest Segway technique, (which really doesn’t take long with a fully trained Go Ape instructor by our side), we were taken off the beaten track & into the forest.

Guided by an instructor we were taken through forest trails, through woodland, open terrain & alongside waterways to put the Segways through their paces at a speed you are comfortable with, (the Segways will reach a maximum of 16mph). Using a Segway on uneven ground is a particularly exhilarating when navigating your route around trees, bumps, obstructions, narrow pathways, down slopes & up hills.

Whenever I’ve been on a Segway, I have always been struck with how quickly the the instructors recognise both your aptitude & objectives; whether this be difficult terrain,  picturesque surroundings or an adrenalin fueled adventure.  Your Segway experience last for an hour and, whilst this might not seem a long time, you are certainly beginning it to feel it, (particularly in your legs) by the time you head back to base.

Go Ape Forest Segway Requirements

1. To enjoy the Go Ape Forest Segways, you will need to be over 10 years old AND over 45kg/7 stone in weight, (but under 125kg/19.5 stone). These Go Ape requirements are in place for navigation purposes and be aware that Go Ape have scales on site too!

2. Children aged 10 – 15 years must be accompanied by a paying adult with a maximum of 1 adult to 3 children under 16 years. Whilst those aged 16 & 17 can ride unsupervised they cannot supervise others. So this isn’t an experience you can leave to the kids…though, why would you want to miss the fun! Kidding apart, it is something to take account of when costing your Segway trip.

3. Remember to dress sensibly for this Segway experience so no sandals or high heels! A Go Ape Segway is an all weather experience so you will still be going out in the wet & rain, (I hear it makes for an enhanced experience). If you do want to cancel, you will need to provide 48 notice to re-arrange your visit.

4. Go Ape Segways session offers you an hour’s off road experience, (including training time), with an accompanying guide.

5. You can now pick up a Segway at a range of forest locations including the Forest of Dean, Bracknell, Black Park, Grizedale Forest, Moors Valley, Thetford, Cannock, Dalby Forest, Delamere Forest & Sherwood Pines.

Full details can be found at Go Ape Forest Segways.
