An arena will usually use either tempered glass or plexiglass (acrylic) for their dasher board glass. The tempered glass is much heavier and more resistant to scratches. However when it breaks, it will shatter into thousands of pieces. The plexiglass is much lighter and is more subject to scratches but when it starts to break will first form tiny cracks. Eventually a piece might break off but there will not be the shattering as in tempered glass.
Each car is battery powered and contains small wheels on the bottom of the car that allow it to drive over the ice surface. The car is controlled by two handles on each side and allow the driver to move the car, forwards, backwards, sideways or perform a 360 degree rapid spin! The cars are all controlled by a remote control from the staff member in charge.
