This article reports that Valley Ice Skating has produced a new type of bumper car for recreational facilities. The cars are powered by two gel celled batteries which means that no electric floor is required for operation. A car can run for 6 hours without needing to be recharged. This allows for bumper cars to be available for birthday parties and other venues where no special floors are available.
