George W Bush famously fell off one, and soon you may be able to too at Chessington World of Adventures.

Plans have been submitted to Kingston Council for a new 1,400-metre Segway tour through woodland in the resort’s Sixty Acre Wood, which also includes a Go Ape park.

The council is currently accepting feedback and comments on the application as part of a consultation process.

The developer claimed the Segway tour would “encourage more outdoor recreation and appreciation of the woodland by visitors”.

Chessington’s associate director Ian York wrote that Sixty Acre Wood was an “ideal location” for the tour.

The application is the latest in a series of proposals to add to the resort as part of a long-term plan for the next five to 10 years.

Kingston Council has already approved plans for a Go Ape treetop adventure course for Sixty Acre Wood and ‘glamping’ tents – posh camping – at Chessington, and blueprints for 45 new lodges at the Safari hotel have also been submitted.

The resort’s masterplan also refers to plans for a soft play area, indoor trampolines and a 3D cinema at the Safari Hotel, new rides and animal attractions, and a new family rollercoaster, but does not yet mention further details.

The Surrey Comet asked Chessington for more information, but a spokeswoman remained tight-lipped, and said it would “be a surprise”.

The closing date for comments on the application is Friday, August 25.
