Start Making Tracks...

The combination of warmer days and lighter evenings can only mean one thing: spring is in the air!

The signs of spring are all around us we can see them, sense them, smell them and hear them. We're looking forward to March not just because it's the start of spring, but because it marks the return of our Forest Segway Experience!

Our all-terrain Segways have been hibernating through the winter but they'll soon be unleashed out onto the forest floor once again. Our Forest Segway Experience is perfect for people looking for an awesome adventure with a down-to-earth twist, or for people who have booked-in for a Tree Top Adventure and want to carry on the fun!


And what better time to cruise the forest than with your family or buddies rolling beside you?

The flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping, and you'll (hopefully) have the mild, spring sunshine beating down on you.

It costs just £35 for an hour of off-road fun that includes a safety demo from one of the Go Ape tribe plus a brief practice session (if you've never hopped aboard a Segway before, it might take you a couple of minutes to find your balance). Then, once we're confident you can ride solo, you'll be free to roam!

Your Segway adventure will take you right into the heart of the forest.

You'll navigate around the trees via simple pathways and some testing trails that'll require good balance and full concentration. Don't forget to stop (or at least slow down) to appreciate what's around you. And if you're quiet enough, there's a good chance you'll spot some wildlife!

When your adventure is up, you'll cruise back to the Segway base where a certificate with your name will be waiting for you. And then what? You could move from rolling around to monkeying around in the trees for a couple of hours on one of our Tree Top Adventure courses. Or if you prefer to be a little closer to the ground, you might chose to explore more of the forest by foot or bike (we hire mountain bikes at our Black Park Country Park site).

There are just a few rules for our Forest Segway Experience: riders must be aged 10 or up, weigh more than 7 stone and less than 19.5 stone. Kids aged between 10 and 15 years old must be supervised by an adult. We also ask that you dress appropriately for the forest adventure; wear closed-toe, flat shoes and clothes you don't mind getting muddy, which is a high possibility in this weather!

Our Forest Segway experience is available at eleven Go Ape sites across the UK. For more information, or to book your adventure, head over to the Forest Segway page.
