There was another ride, at Coney Island, which I went on when I was about six years old, with my older brother. It was the electric bump car ride. Each car had an overhead pantograph, which supplied it with electricity, in order to power the car. There was a small steering wheel in the car, and other cars would bump, or should I say crash into your car. Each car did not have wheels, but somehow slid on the surface. There was an older boy (I still remember his smirking face), who loved to intentionally and repeatedly crash his car into mine. Also, there were sparks which were omitted from the tops of the pantographs, from each of the cars.
