Ice Bumper Cars Return to Alex + Ani City Center

Bump up your winter activities, the bumper cars on ice are back for another winter at the Alex + Ani City Center right in the heart of downtown Providence.

Providence is one of only three cities across the country, and the only place in New England, to bring this unique activity to the public. Climb into a car and glide forwards, sideways and backwards around the ice using a joystick which allows for a full 360º turn radius. Warm up after you play by visiting one of the many nearby restaurants to warm up with a delicious hot cocoa or a spot of whiskey.

This fun activity is open to the public and fun for all ages. Tickets for bumper cars are $12 per rider for 20 minutes. Children ages three to five ride free seated with an adult. For more information visit the Alex + Ani City Center website.

As always, the Alex + Ani Center also has ice skating every day of the week. The rink has skate rentals available and you can learn to skate with various lesson packages. Looking for a place to warm up after your time on the ice? There are lots of cozy places to pop into around the neighborhood.

Alex + Ani City Center is located at 2 Kennedy Plaza.
