One of the coolest things to do this summer--and we do mean the coolest--is riding in a bumper car. No, not the usual bumper cars at the fair, silly. We're talking bumper cars on ice. Every Monday this summer at Idaho IceWorld, you can ride inflatable bumper cars from 9:30 a.m.-2 p.m. The cost is $7 for 10 minutes--a little pricey by our standards--but still a slippery blast.
I can personally attest to the fun factor. They spin 360 degrees and never get stuck in the corners and kids learn how to handle a joystick with no effort all. An adult can comfortably fit in one ice bumper car with a small child, but kids will definitely think they've arrived if they ride alone.
The bumper cars are offered in conjunction with Monday Madness when two people skate for the price of one from 9:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Also this summer, Wednesday evenings are family night during which family members can skate for $5 per person (including skate rentals). Also, on Fridays, if you bring a canned food item for the Idaho Foodbank, you score a free skate rental.
