This was loads of fun! We have experienced the traditional bumper cars several times, and this was super fun! We had been running around in our shorts and t-shirts all day before stopping by to look into the bumper cars. We decided to "go for it" and really didn't get that cold. The only thing that actually got cold were... More

The bumper cars on ice is a must do. We took kids 3.5, 6, 7.5, 9. They all had a blast. 3.5 year old went with adult. Had such a good time went back the next day and did it again... only $10 per person when we went.

Great entertainment for kids. Our 7 year old was skeptical, but when he started rolling his eyes lit up and the smile was undeniable. We had a blast bumping one another and spinning around. He's 4'1" and was just tall enough to be solo to work the levers. Skating was also fun. Staff were helpful and nice.

After 2 days of skiing we decided to take it easy and do something fun. With 4 kids between the ages of 4 and 8, we had to find something that appealed to all of them. They had so much fun driving the bumper cars! What a great idea. They followed it up with some ice skating and had a... More

Super nice staff. Kids and adults both loved the bumper cars. Fairly inexpensive and provides a nice break from all the outdoor activities of Steamboat.

After skiing for three days we needed to take a break. Howelsen Ice Arena was great. My two daughters (ages 12 and 14) really enjoyed the ice bumper cars and indoor ice skating. I called at 11:00 and they booked us at 1:00 for bumper cars. Very easy process. It was nice to not have to sign waivers for once.... More
