Saudi Arabian Women Are Using Bumper Cars to Drive and It's Awesome

Saudi Arabian Women Are Using Bumper Cars to Drive and It's Awesome

In a nation where women cannot drive, bumper cars have become an exciting alternative.

According to a recent feature in the Wall Street Journal, some women in Saudi Arabia have turned to ladies' nights at the Al Shallal Theme Park in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, to exercise their freedom to do nothing but drive.

While there are some minor collisions, the women actually cruise beside each other in their bumper cars, as opposed to the men who are said to bump into each other — an important distinction here.

Watch the video below to see women in Saudi Arabia ride together. The video is part of the “Never Never Land” series shot by Arwa Al Neami in an amusement park in Abha, Saudi Arabia.
