Bumper Cars on Ice at Bryant Park Thrills Kids and Families

Bumper Cars on Ice at Bryant Park Thrills Kids and Families

Part of the Bryant Park Winter Village, bumper cars on ice provides more winter fun for families


Bumper cars are back at the Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park. But these bumper cars have a twist—they're on ice! So get ready to bump, slide and spin on the park's ice rink with bumper cars on ice, open through Feb. 27.

This winter-time activity is something almost anyone can do. It's also great for those who may not be the best at ice skating, but still want to have a good time on the ice. 

“Bumper cars bring excitement back to the ice after the busy holiday season, and we try to offer a variety of activities so that even visitors who are reluctant to skate can enjoy Bank of America Winter Village,” says Irene Vagianos, vice president of brand partnerships and events at Bryant Park. 

During bumper cars on ice, each person gets their own car, allowing you to compete with everyone else in your group! Each bumper-car session lasts 10 minutes.
