This is awful! I love bumper cars, but the way this ride operates and the way the staff treats you is deplorable. The announcer repeats the same safety spiel about five times over, tries to tell you how to drive when you get stuck, and orders you around if you dont follow the instructions exactly. By next season, theyll have you just driving laps around the center divider and not hitting anyone. When I was there, I was one of the last people let on the ride, and I was told which car to sit in. There are also too many cars in the ring, a lot of which sit idle around the side, which, combined with the center divider, really cramps up the space. Playlands safety crackdown has stifled this ride too. It could be so much better.

These are some of the best Bumper cars I have ever been on. despite the The center divider the very large arena might as well not have it. The corners were rounded so cars didnt get stuck easily. unlike some previous reviews I found the circut time really good. The Cars look great and moved at a very good pas. Some of the fastest Bumper cars I have been on. The didnt have a problem controlling the cars at all. The only think that lowered the rides quality for me was the operator. there would be a pile up of cars. and here she calls over the tinty very loud speakers, with the most annoying voice in the world. "Turn the wheel, Turn the wheel." Over and over again.

Auto Scooter at Rye Playland was a fun bumper car ride that had some positives and negatives. Located to the left of the main entrance, the Auto Scooter is housed under a huge arena. Rye Playlands Auto Scooter is the kind of bumper cars ride that has the center divider forcing cars to go only one way. Generally a walk-on, Auto Scooter can get a wait up to 5 minutes sometimes. With many yellow and blue cars to choose from, there is a very large arena for the Auto Scooter. Anyone over the age of 13 isnt required to wear a seatbelt which is cool. Each car can seat up to 2 people, but often people ride single. There are many cars. Once the Auto Scooter begins, you ride around the arena at a pretty good speed getting some pretty good hits. Unfortunately, these are very hard to control going around turns since they skid a lot and often. Still, there are many opertunities to cause collisions and is very fun. However, Rye Playland gives a rather short ride cycle for a bumper car ride. Overall, a fun set of bumper cars. The Auto Scooter is much better than the Bumper Cars across the park. I highly recommend this ride to anyone who enjoys bumper cars.

These are by far the hardest hitting non-Lusse cars that I have experienced. They dont have the great sounds of a Lusse, or the after shock of a hit like a Lusse, but the initial hits are really something. I hit someone almost head-on (which is technically not legal) and I bounced back literally 2 1/2 feet after the impact. I also highly suggest sandwiching someone. I can also say that I actually got a pretty wicked bruise from one of the hits, where I feel off to the side a little bit and my knee caught the steering wheel just right. Between that and the fact that seatbelts are optional for anyone over the age of 13, I say these get my approval.

I really enjoyed these also and rate them the best non-Lusse. These cars move at full speed and you can real bounce people around if you t-bone them. and they run them for a good long time.

A traditional bumper car ride inside a large building, and there were many fast moving cars

I really enjoyed this bumper car ride, one of the better non-Lusse rides out there. The cars were in good shape and they move quick. It also has a very large arena, with about 50 cars.

A larger traditional dodgem that earns extra credit for the unusual cars and for having a larger than usual ride capacity.

A good bumper car ride but nothing absolutly incredible. At 3 tickets (equal to four last year) this ride is a bit pricy. There used to be another bumper car ride over by tower. This bumber car ride was cheaper (3 tickets as opposed to 4) and more fun. Albeit there were fewer cars.
