Bumper Cars on Ice
A bumper car-filled ice rink is popping up for three days in Melbourne.

If you're on the hunt for some new-school fun to make the impending frosty months go faster, you can stop searching right now. Someone, somewhere, has dreamed up the impressive combination of bumper cars and ice-skating — and is bringing the concept Down Under.
In an Aussie first, Bumper Cars on Ice will hit Docklands' O'Brien Icehouse for three days this November. Oddly, it will happen after winter's finished — but, knowing Melbourne's weather, there's a high chance there will still be a frost in the air.
Not a whole lot of info has dropped just yet, though, from the photos, it looks like this unique activity will have you pinballing around an ice rink in a bubble-shaped bumper car, slipping and sliding into mates.
Tickets will set you back $37.84, which gets you ten minutes on the ice and all-day access to ice skating, which will have DJs and a bar serving mulled wine (of course).
Bumper Cars on Ice runs in sessions from 5–11pm on Friday, 1.30–11pm on Saturday and 12.30–6pm on Sunday. Adults only sessions run from 7–10pm on the two nights.
