What does riding a Segway PT feel like?

Riding the Segway PT feels like nothing you’ve ever experienced because there’s never been anything like it. Step on and your instinct will be to steady yourself, as you would on anything with two wheels. But almost immediately you’ll realize that the Segway PT is balancing for you, almost like it has become an extension of you. Just lean forward a little and you’ll see that the Segway PT isn’t moving you on its own; it’s moving in response to you and what you tell it to do. It all feels natural and really cool. Be sure to review the User Materials before using a Segway PT.

What Time Do I Need To Arrive?

We ask all riders to arrive 15 minutes before there session start time.

How does it move? How does it balance?

The Segway PT uses LeanSteer™ Technology to move you from Point A to B. Gently move the LeanSteer frame and handlebar left or right in the direction you want to travel and feel the machine respond almost instantly.
The Segway PT balances by using five micro-machined angular rate sensors and two accelerometers that sense the changing terrain and your body position at 100 times per second.

How fast can the Segway PT travel?

Each Segway PT comes with two operational settings, “beginner” and “standard”. Beginner setting is set to 6mph/13kph, and the standard setting is set to 12.5mph/20kph. 12.5 mph is roughly equal to a 5-minute mile, a really fast run.

Are you open all year?
