Buckle up, because it’s going to be a bumpy ride! Take a ride alone or grab a passenger as your sidekick. Once you’re buckled, grab the wheel, step on the accelerator and get ready to bump and push your way around in classic bumper car style—but watch out for crazy drivers as you may crash into competition. But don’t worry, the big rubber bumpers will allow you to bounce right off of the other cars and you’ll be on your way to bumping your next favorite “frenemy.” Take the chance of getting spun out as you swerve, whip, spin and bump to your heart’s wild desire.

Get behind the wheel of one of these classic bumper cars and enjoy bumper-to-bumper traffic for once! The Rue le Dodge bumper cars ride is a park mainstay that has entertained generations. Keep your eye on the track because you never know when someone has their eye on your car!

Height Requirement: 48” minimum.
