Ice Bumper Cars are a Holiday Must-Do in Downtown Providence
One of the most popular holiday attractions in Providence has returned to the BankNewport City Center.
Ice Bumper Cars puts a fun, wintertime twist on a carnival classic and BankNewport City Center is the first outdoor rink in the nation to do it. Here’s how to take advantage of this family-friendly pop-up in downtown Providence.
The BankNewport City Center Winter Programming
On Friday, December 1st, Providence Mayor Brett P. Smiley will announce the start of this year’s winter programming at the BankNewport City Center.
“It’s always a good time of year to visit Providence, but I am particularly excited about the many fun and exciting things we are hosting this holiday season,” said the mayor. “Whether you are coming for the tree lighting or to enjoy the world-class plays that we host regularly at PPAC and Trinity, Providence is a standout holiday destination this year.”
Starting this Saturday, the Providence Rink will become the destination for some serious fun.
What to Expect
“Imagine sitting in the bumper car moving forwards, backward, and sideways with a full 360-degree turn radius bumping opponents out of your way,” said the rink. Riders 6 years of age and older can operate a bumper car by themselves, and for fifteen minutes, the only goal is to bump into as many bumper cars as possible.
Due to the rink’s large size, the bumper cars are able to share the ice with skaters, but there are private bumper car sessions available.
