I see you call them Dodgem Cars. Here in Canada and probably the USA too, they are called Bumper cars and ran off current coming from the overhead metal ceiling through the car and out the bottom to the metal floor to complete the power curcuit. This brings back fond memories of going to the PNE in Vancouver, BC Canada (Pacific National Exhibition) as a kid and riding them over and over again. Great fun.

In Denmark it's radiobiler... that's "radio cars" - no idea why, maybe because of the antennas?

I always thought Dodgem Cars was the American name for them. Back home in the UK when I was a kid they were always Bumper cars.

I have always known them as Dodgem Cars but I was only going by the description on the box.
