Woodland Segway at Lough Key

If you go down to the woods today you're sure of a Big surprise!

No its not a teddy bears picnic, its something much more exciting. Its the brand new Woodland Segway guided glides and tours at the beautiful Lough Key Forest and Activity Park that will be opening this Easter (opening from 11 April 2014). Woodland Segway is a new eco tourism attraction at Lough Key Forest and Activity Park that aims to combine the rich history of the Lough Key area with the cutting edge technology and fun of the Segway Personal Transporter.

SegWhat? Segway!

Segway Personal Transporters are super cool high-tech two wheeled self balancing electric scooters that are simple to use and so much fun to ride. With Woodland Segway you will be able to glideeffortlessly around the beautiful woodland trails of Lough Key Forest and Activity Park on your very own Segway. On our historical tours you'll also be able to hear all about the history of Rockingham, the former King Family Estate, on which Lough Key Forest & Activity Park is located. You'll be able to find out what life was like in Ireland's own Downton Abbey! The history of the area will be brought to life by our colourful guides such as Lorton the Lord of the Manor, the Game Keep Mollison and even Reilly the butler. For those that just want to get on a Segway and go we have the Rockingham Roll, a fun glide with no commentary around the trails at Lough Key. If you've never been on a Segway before then you are in for a real treat. Riding the Segway 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 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 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.

And ask yourself this: When Was The LAST Time You Did Something For The FIRST Time?
