According to Only In Your State Minnesota, you can find this fun-filled event way up in the north country in Virginia, Minnesota to be exact.

It may be a bit of a jaunt, but if you're heading in that direction anyway, it's most definitely a can't-miss experience.

The Ice Bumper Cars are located at the Iron Trail Motors Event Center and each ride is around 15 minutes long. Here are the rules:

  • No food or drink is allowed on the bumper cars
  • Drivers must be at least 6 years old and over 42 inches in height
  • Persons will not be allowed to ride on bumper cars if they are deemed unruly, or under the influence of drugs or alcohol
