An Excellent Experience!

“A great way to see Paihia and regain your youth. The acceleration and speed (always safe) was incredible. We both felt 20 years old again!

We thoroughly recommend the Thunder Trike. If you want to do something exhilarating in Paihia this is it. The Trike is a fantastic machine.”

“Absolutely a MUST if you are in Paihia. Did not want to get off! 30 minutes was not enough.

Put it on your bucket list for next time you are in Paihia, no matter what age you are you will enjoy it.”
