The bumper cars on the outdoor ice skating rink at Bank of America Winter Village at Bryant Park were a smashing success in 2019 and 2020. Tickets are already on sale. They cost $20 ($25 on weekends and holidays) per 10-minute session and must be reserved in advance online.

A new batch of tickets is released daily for dates two weeks in advance.

Kids ages 7 and up (and their adults, of course) can ride—one person per car, no lap-riders. Masks are required by all riders. Be sure to read all the rules and waiver in advance.

Ice bumper cars are available weekdays from 2pm-8pm and weekends from 11am-5pm. Special late-night, date-night sessions will be released throughout the run if you're looking for adults-only fun.
