Dodgem is a flat ride. It is fast, fun, rerideable, it has a large capacity, and a long duration.

Yes, the dodgems are slow. Yes, there are better rides at CP. But, as far as bumper cars go, this ride is great. There are not many bumper car rides left because of claims of whiplash and whatnot, but kudos to cedar point for keeping this time honored ride around.

Its really a shame that a park this great has a set of bumper cars this awful. Dodgem is easily the worst flat ride at Cedar Point, and by a wide margin. These things are pretty pathetic, and I can summarize a typical ride experience on Dodgem.

Enter the line, and begin waiting....and waiting....and waiting. ("Good lord, I swear shes checked those seat belts 6 times!" Yawn. Move 6 feet, repeat waiting. All right, now we can finally get on this thing! Maybe theyll be better this time.....ok, can you check any slower? No, seriously, Im gonna cramp up in this thing waiting to start! *Ding* Ok, here we go, lets find some friends to hit....why the hell am I moving backwards? Wait a minute, which way do I have to turn this thing? Arrrrgh!! I turn left, and it goes right! *bump* Well, I almost felt that. Ok, lets go....*bump* Did a bug hit the side of my car? Wow, its great that Im moving slower than on the antique cars!! :snore: *bump* *bump* *bump* You know what this thing really needs? How about another 20 cars!?! Hey, theres my friends! All right, Im lining them up now! Here we go.....*Ding* Wow, got almost 90 seconds that time! Shake head and exit the ride, all the while laughing at how putrid your car was.

I still have some fun on these hunks of junk, but only because its my mission to overcome the crap cars and try to "hit" a friend while going about 0.6 mph! Plus, well usually greatly overexaggerate when we do collide, which is always worth a laugh. That is about the only thing that saves these from the depths of a 1. These really are the anti-bumper cars, as they are laughably slow and have the impact of a nerf ball thrown by an infant. Add that to the ridiculous wait and I have two words for you - keep walkin!!

These were a pathetic excuse for bumper cars. Loading took a very long time and the ride I got was much shorter than the load time (the ride lasted about a minute). The cars traveled way too slow and they had no power at all. Also, there was no room to manuever at all as there were way too many cars in the arena.

I pretty much agree with Larry though I didnt have quite the load time experience. Very slow with not much life to them. Course to be honest I am not a huge bumper car fan. I only rode them so I could put it on my tracker.

The absolute worst bumper cars ever. I always thought SFGAdv were the worst. Nope, the worst sit at my favorite park, Cedar Point. Horrendous load times, it took the ride op at least ten miuntes to clear the previous people, let the new riders in and check seat belts. Then the ride cycle starts. It could not have been more than 1 minute, really. But thats OK, it is all relative since the bumper cars had the speed of a 94-year old woman in a walker. No offense meant to any 94-year old women with walkers, you probably could have out run a Dodgem bumper car and hit a lot harder too.
