Trimper's Rides and Amusements#5 in Best Things To Do in Ocean City
Since the late 1800s, Trimper's Rides and Amusements has dominated Ocean City's entertainment scene. With more than 100 rides -- both indoor and outdoor -- you're sure to find something to suit the whole family. Let your tots fly high on the Airplanes ride, or take to the seas in the Bumper Boats. Your older kids might enjoy the thrills of the Avalanche and the Freakout.
But because this is one of the most popular spots in Ocean City, expect hefty price tags. "It's not necessarily cheap, but it's a lot of fun. Whether you have small children or teenagers, there are plenty of rides and things to see for everyone," says one TripAdvisor user.
Trimper's Rides and Amusements sits just north of the Ocean City Life-Saving Museum on the southern tip of the Ocean City Boardwalk. The indoor rides operate year-round (starting at 1 p.m. on weekdays and noon on weekends), but you can only enjoy the outdoor portion of the park from mid-June to Labor Day (starting at 3 p.m. on weekdays and noon on weekends). Each ride requires at least one ticket, which you can purchase for 50 cents each or a sheet of 40 for $19. Recent visitors recommend you get a $23 wristband for unlimited access to all the rides from opening to 7 p.m., and then rely on the single tickets and sheets for the park's evening hours, from 7 p.m. to around midnight.
