Carnival rides are great fun and a must-do is usually the bumper cars. But, where you can find bumper cars in Singapore?
Where to Find Bumper Cars in Singapore
If you have your heart set on a “bumpity” time, here are some places where you can have a fun with bumper cars in Singapore.
Timezone at Vivocity is about the only permanent location offering bumper cars in Singapore.
These brightly-coloured cars with flashing lights are brought in from Italy. There are five cars available within the driving pen. The cars are self-powered and do not need pole sticking out from the back to pick up electricity from the grid above. That’s good as we always find it eeky when the pole sparks occasionally!

It costs $6 to get into one of these bumper cars. Drivers have five minutes to go hurtling off at each other. No real skill needed. In fact, the less skill the better. Just step on the pedal, twist the wheel and have a fun time crashing into each other.
Each car can accommodate up to two persons. Kids must be at least 106 cm tall. If they are shooter than 130 cm, they will need to be accompanied by an adult.
Editor’s Note (March 2018): Timezone VivoCity has shifted to a new location on the second floor of the mall and still offers bumper cars. Find out more about the new Timezone VivoCity flagship store here.
Ok, when we said Timezone VivoCity was the only permanent place offering bumper cars in Singapore, we were only counting regular bumper cars.
Over at The Rink, they offer bumper cars on ice. Actually, these “cars” look more like inflatable tires with a yellow cockpit but they are are still built for bumping.

Bumper Cars on Ice takes place on Saturdays between 5.15 pm to 9.30 pm. This takes place in a separate area from the rest of the skaters for safety reasons. For those who can’t skate, the Bumper Cars are a great way to have some fun on the ice. It costs $8 for a 10-minute ride time. The minimum age for riders to ride alone is four years old. Kids younger than four can be accompanied by an adult in the car.
