It's the first-of-its-kind, 16-person pedal bar that comes with a thatch roof, tiki theme wrap and a Yeti cooler provided by the company.

According to Nick Blaszcyk, the owner of the companies, weekends are almost sold out for the tiki boats, so this gives people an opportunity to have a tiki bar that's mobile on land.

The tiki bar pedal pub starts at Bookies Bar and Grill, and the restaurant is also giving everyone a $20 gift card to use after the tour.

Booking is available now for the tiki bar pedal pub and it can hold up to 16 people.
