We can come up with some very unique ways to pass the time in the winter in Minnesota. We especially seem to like to do things on the ice that weren't necessarily intended to be on the ice. For example, go-karting on ice in Stillwater. There's also a place in Minnesota where you can try ice bumper cars.

According to the Iron Trail Motors Event Center (which is where you can go try ice bumper cars) they're the only place in Minnesota that offers this. The unfortunate part for us is that the only ice bumper cars in the state... are way up in Virginia, MN

Yeah, that Virginia, MN.

But if you're going to be up in that area, you should definitely check out the ice bumper cars. Or heck, plan a whole trip around these ice bumper cars!

It's only offered on Sundays from 9 AM to noon. You can also skate at the Iron Trail Motors Event Center, you just need to bring your own skates. Tickets for ice bumper cars are $10 each, tickets for skating are $5 each. Each ice bumper car ride is 15 minutes. I'm not sure if one ticket gets you one ride or if you can ride as many times as you want and you just have to wait in line until it's your turn again.

If you're interested in checking out Minnesota's only ice bumper cars and you have questions you can call 218-748-7518 or email jenm@virginiamn.us.

The 10 Sounds of a Minnesota Winter

We love to hate the winter in Minnesota, especially in January and February. But in the winter there are some sounds that can only be heard in the wintertime. Some are very pleasant and others not so much.
