Images of America: Trimper's Rides
No trip to Ocean City, Maryland, is complete without a visit to Trimpers Rides. The unforgettable bright lights, carousel music, and elated screams from riders on the Tidal Wave are cherished memories for generations who return to the park annually. The evolution and success of Trimpers Rides embodies the American dream. It began when an enterprising German immigrant named Daniel B. Trimper and his large family took a chance on a little-known seaside town. They built a top-notch family-entertainment experience that continues to delight visitors today. The Trimpers rebuilt after storms, endured wartime challenges, and experienced periods of rapid growth and prosperity. Trimpers Rides chronicles this journey with nostalgic images of past attractions and the people who made Trimpers Rides the destination for family fun.
