Dodgems at the Trafford Centre

Our dodgem tracks are some of the fastest in Europe, so get ready for an exhilarating ride

Quick Book


When was the last time you went on some dodgems? Ours is the some of the fastest dodgems in Europe and at just £4 a ride, you’ll have so much fun that you’ll keep on coming back for more. Kids over 135cm can ride on their own and kids between 90cm and 135cm can ride with an adult. Maximum two people per car.


Whether you call them ‘dodgems’ or ‘bumper cars’, there’s no denying just how awesome it is to get behind the wheel. Of course, the name ‘dodgems’ does show that the aim of this game was originally to AVOID the other cars rather than bump into them, but people soon realised how much more fun it was to put the ‘bump’ into bumper cars.
