What are Bumper Cars On Ice?
The bumper cars are basically a big rubber tube, with a seat in the middle that glides across the ice allowing you to take control using the handles on each side and crash into other bumper cars on the ice.

Each car is battery powered and contains small wheels on the bottom of the car that allow it to drive over the ice surface. The car is controlled by two handles on each side and allow the driver to move the car, forwards, backwards, sideways or perform a 360 degree rapid spin! The cars are all controlled by a remote control from the staff member in charge.
