This is an adventure activity on city streets in an uncontrolled environment. In addition to other unforeseeable circumstances we cannot guarantee your tour will be without incident. It is impossible for AOW to fully train, explain or demonstrate all possible accident scenarios in one training session. If guests follow our rules and pay attention it is likely you will have an incident-free activity. BUT, 1 or 2 % of guests fall off the Segway at some point, either during training, on the tour or near the end. We do not recommend the tours for people who are unsteady on their feet. Guests should be able to walk up and down a set of stairs and nimbly jump off a curb without assistance. Guest will stand for 45 minutes to an hour and a half on the Segway. Adventures Out West cannot fully determine a guest's ability to ride a Segway. By signing the waiver, guests acknowledge they have taken necessary steps to determine their ability level. Reckless or disrespectful behavior will not be tolerated. Troublesome guests will be asked to leave the tour without refund. Our tours are fun, scenic, site-seeing adventures, not high-performance tours. We recommend you do a Youtube search for Segway crashes to view a random sampling of what people do on Segways and how easily one can fall.
Try and train on our Segway in the safety and security of the cone zone. If you are hesitant about venturing out on one of our Segways, don't worry, we will teach you the basics and make you aware of the potential risks. This 20 to 30 minute Segway orientation is the foundation of a successful tour. All AOW guests are required to complete the Cone Zone Training before being allowed to participate in any of the Segway tours we offer. Guests with prior Segway experience are still required to participate in the Cone Zone.

The Santa Ynez Valley was settled by the Chumash Indians when the mother eagle mixed Sky, Sun, Water and dirt to create Paradise. Since its settlement by catholic missionaries in 1769, the Valley has been an agricultural paradise. Solvang, the Danish Capitol of America was founded in 1911. The goal was to build a Danish-style folk school to preserve the founders' heritage. 100 years later Solvang's Danish background is stronger than ever and is proudly shown in this unique town's architecture and personality. The fertile soils of the Santa Ynez Valley produce some of the best wines in the world. Cattle Ranching and the cowboy way of life are alive and well. Come see for yourself why people have been flocking to this area. And why it might just be the friendliest place in the West.

Past the Ranch are the gates to Neverland.
We park our cars at an elevation of 2500 feet and hop on the Segways. Up we go through deep fields of grass entering the Los Padres National Forest. Tall pines and cool mountain breezes are the norm. Views that stretch to the Pacific Ocean are breath taking from 4500 feet in elevation.
