The Bottom Line:

While a great family ride, this attraction may not be worth the long wait times but can definitely be a great way to work out some pent up aggression!

Hop in the only cars where you’re allowed to let your reckless driving shine through. On the Demolition Derby, you’ll be driving your bumper car around with the goal being to hit everyone in sight. This is the only place where it’s okay to let your road rage take over; in fact, the more aggressive you are, the better!

Walk on through the gates and into the derby rink. Take your pick of one of the brightly colored cars; you can even have a passenger if someone is brave enough to ride with you! Pull the lap bar down, grab the wheel, and get ready to rumble. Once the cars are activated, it’s anyone’s call as to what might happen! You’re about to be bumped and scooted around the track as you and your fellow drivers smash into, well, anything and everything.

Everyone can bump at their own risk as there are no bumping boundaries. The giant rubber piece around your car ensures no real damage gets done, so go ahead and let out your inner destructive side! Demolition Derby will have you bumping and sliding, and you’ll love every minute of it!

Insider Tip:
Although each car does have rubber bumpers on the outside, hard hits have been known to happen. There’s always a possibility of being jerked around somewhat aggressively, so keep that in mind if you have any back or neck issues.
