About
We offer a total dirt bike riding experience for riders of all ages and skill levels. Set in 750 acres of rolling countryside and breathtaking scenery, 1.25hrs from central Auckland and an hour from Hamilton. We are the only facility of this type in NZ: where you can ride tracks, hire a bike & get coaching. We have 25 bikes; something to suit all sizes and experience levels; from children's Peewee 50cc to 300cc for the experienced rider. Full protective gear is included in hire. No motorbike licence or experience necessary. Tuition available with experienced coaches. We will teach you to ride independently around our beautiful private Park. Whatever your thirst for fun on the tracks, we have it here: Learners', Novice/Intermediate, Advanced and Motocross tracks. The tracks were established in 1999 by owner, James Fowlie, so that his teenage children had somewhere to train. The Park has been popular with locals, domestic and international visitors ever since.

Highly recommened as an introduction to dirt bikes
Apr 2021
The two of us took the full day package with tution as this was about introducing my 15 year old daughter to motorbikes. It was a great starter despite the early morning shower to wet the track.
Highly recommended as an introduction to dirt bikes for anyone.
The food and drink provided throughout the day, top class PPE and bikes, patient coaching and hospitality from the homestead made our day one that will be remembered. We'll be back.

We are hooked!
Apr 2021
4 days after our visit where 9 of us hired bikes, our Whatsapp Chat has gone none stop with elation. Day 3 including phoning for quotes 7 new Kawasaki KLX 140’s and 300’s.

If there wasn’t a demand and supply issue negating a good deal, we would have had cash out! We are super chuffed with our efforts on the day and the team challenging themselves. Chatter is already on for another visit.

The track and space was amazing with great bikes and gear! The briefing, registration and gearing up was painless. A truly amazing experience. Thank you to Mandy, James, Michelle and CJ for hosting our group. See you again soon :).

Amazing day at an amazing park
Apr 2021 • Family
An amazing facility. Friendly owners who are very helpful. I had one hours tuition, and was quickly off having fun for the entire day. The tracks are just amazing. We had wet weather, but this just added to the fun. The tracks are fantastic. We will be back

Amazing day out at Thundercross. My 14yr old had an hour lesson with the owner James to learn the fundamentals of riding before taking to the tracks. He's now 100% hooked.
I highly recommend Thundercross Valley. We can't wait to go back and possibly camp for a weekend out there.

Fantastic day out — must do..!
Feb 2021 • Friends
Three mates hired a bike each for boys day out in the countryside — worth every penny..! Grunty bikes, great safety gear, and fantastic/down/to-earth service/hospitality from James, Mandy and CJ (thank you!). Highly recommended for riders from learner to advanced. We’ll definitely be back.

First time riding, hired a bike, all the gear and got lessons. Amazing experience, so much fun. Nice bike, good quality gear, great teacher. Beautiful farm, really neat tracks. Nice progression of the tracks, so you can choose your level. The owners Mandy and James are so lovely. Will definitely be going back. Thank you for a great day
