We're planning to bring out a pretty spectacular interactive attraction this year:
What's more fun than bumper cars at an amusement park?
Pedal powered bumper cars--aka Pedalbumps for everyone at 2013 Burning Man!
Our crack team of fungi-neers are ready to design and construct a fleet of six stylized, pimped out, bumper cars for races at our esplanade arena.
All of the details are at http://www.pedalbump.com
Never before has there been a bumper car installation on the Playa (that we know of...) Sanctioned, safe (?) CRASHING, BUMPING, SMASHING, THRASHING and many other 'ings! PEDAL to the METAL!
We will have six "public" bumper cars which are made up of the base pedal carts, the constructed bumpers and an original design to make each car unique. This fleet will reside at our installation for open hours of hosted hilarity for all to enjoy (first come first serve...)
Beyond the six ready made cars, we will offer the open source instructions for you DIY maniacs who wish to build your own personal car to decorate to your heart's desire. Note: Your personally built cars will be welcomed to our installation during public race times provided they meet the bumper requirements set forth in the easy to follow design. Our arena will be a 60‘x90’ circus tent with a wooden plywood track...you may know the tent as the Cirque Berzerk tent from years past. It will reside at Red Nose District (which also houses Enheightened Beings of Leisure and the Klownge). if you are interested in being part of the project, you can reach us through our website as well as respond here.
