Bumper Cars

A makeMZ ST Original 3D Puzzle

This is a Great Pattern with some Amazing Detail work in it.

Bumper cars (US English) or dodgems (British English) is the generic name for a 
type of flat ride consisting of several small electric cars which draw power from 
the floor and/or ceiling, and which are turned on and off remotely by an 
operator. They are also known as bumping cars and dashing cars'.
The metal floor is usually set up as a rectangular or oval track, and graphite is 
sprinkled on the floor to decrease friction. A rubber bumper surrounds each 
vehicle, and drivers ram each other as they travel. The controls are usually an 
accelerator and a steering wheel. The cars can be made to go backwards by turning 
the steering wheel far enough in either direction, necessary in the frequent 
pile-ups that occur.
Although the idea of the ride is to bump other cars, safety-conscious owners 
sometimes put up signs reading "This way around" and "No (head on) 
bumping."Depending on the level of enforcement by operators, these rules are 
often ignored by bumper car riders, especially younger children and teenagers.
The current largest bumper cars floor is located at Six Flags Great America in 
Gurnee, Illinois, and is called the Rue Le Dodge. The ride is 51 feet, 9 inches 
by 124 feet 9 inches or a total of 6,455 square feet. A replica of the ride was 
built at California's Great America in Santa Clara, CA; in 2005, however, a 
concrete island was added to the middle of the floor to promote one-way traffic, 
reducing the floor area and restoring Rue Le Dodge at Six Flags Great America's 
largest floor title. Six Flags Great Adventure's Autobahn is the largest bumper 
car floor but it has not operated since 2008.

NOTE: Our 3D Puzzles can be built in different thicknesses.
Example: 1/8" uses 1/8" Plywood...1/4" uses 1/4" Plywood, etc.
As a rule, although the slots are set to fit the same sized tool, most
people will use a smaller bit size when cutting.
