Howelsen Ice Complex Reviews
Even though we never ended up doing the ice bumper cars when we stopped in to inquire about availability the staff was very nice and very informed about the surrounding area and very happy to answer..... more »
4 adults...ice with sliding bumper cars...need I say more? It was great we all had fun and were laughing. Only recommendation is to bundle up bc it gets cold after awhile ;p totally worth the money... more »
We had the whole family bumper boating to beat the heat! My 2yo was on my lap, 5yo was in his own boat, and the rest of the adult family of all ages had a blast in their own boats. Twenty minutes was plenty of time. We had lots of bumping. We called twenty minutes in advance to make a reservation, and we had the whole time slot to ourselves (six of us). The man running it was fantastic. He even offered to take a picture of us. He was really great at teaching my 5yo how to run the boat. Bring a jacket (but they provide them if you need them). This will be one of our favorite memories of our trip.
My group was skeptical about coming here, but it was the FUNNEST thing we did on our entire trip! We did the ice bumper cars. The place was deserted in the middle of the day, it was AWESOME. It was worth every penny, everyone in our group agreed! We played tag, raced each other, and tried to see who could spin the fastest. You can ice skate AND do the bumper cars for 20 minutes for just $20, and they have jackets there- but I would totally wear an extra sweater and bring an extra jacket because it was seriously cold in there. I mean, it's an ice arena, so you should expect that. A great way to beat the heat in the summer!
