The holidays are over, but that doesn't mean an end to winter fun. The newest attraction in Providence comes in the form of 12 spinning circular carts full of fun. When you hear bumper cars you think carnival fun crashing into your best friend (or younger sibling), but now you'll think of ice and, well, still crashing into your best friend.
The Alex and Ani City Center is now one of three places in the country to receive these brand new bumper cars that operate on ice. Each ride lasts 20 minutes and costs $12. The bumper cars run at the same time as regular ice skating, so don't worry about not being able to skate too.
The bumper cars will be open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and again on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights from 10 p.m. to 12 a.m.
And even though one third of the rink will be dedicated to bumper cars at some part of the day, it's still twice the size of Rockefeller Center's rink — plenty of room for public ice skating for all!
And the best thing about these carts is that they have real wheels, so they will be running year-round.
