If you couldn’t ice skate even if your life depended on it, there’s still a way to have a whole lot of fun on the ice in New York City this winter. At the Bank of America Winter Village in Bryant Park, visitors will soon be able to spend hours slamming into each other in ice bumper cars.

For the second year in a row, visitors will be able to rent ice bumper cars in the park as part of Frost Fest in January. Frost Fest is a 10-day celebration featuring live entertainment, food, and a variety of winter activities. Last year, the cars proved so popular that the activity was actually extended.

This year, the cars will be available between January 17 and February 28. Keep in mind, to ride you must be over 7 years old, 42 inches tall, and under 300 pounds. Although you don’t have to book in advance, available cars on site are on a first-come, first-served basis. You can book cars online up until the morning of your desired date, and you should probably book quickly if you’re interested, given the event’s popularity last year.

Tickets are $15 for 15-minute intervals, with reservations opening in early January.
