About Trimper Rides and Amusements
BRING THE CHILDREN -- preschool to adult -- or just come yourself. On the Boardwalk by the Inlet, between South Division and South First Street, is where you'll find action, excitement and the picture-taking time of your life!
Reminiscent of an old-time midway park with rides on blacktop paving, TRIMPER'S offers rides, games and concessions. It is a delightfully traditional park, and one to which the family owners are continually adding and improving. There are both indoor and outdoor rides, the latter opening weekends as early as April, with all rides in place before June.
TRIMPER'S most popular outdoor ride is the famous Boomerang and Loop Roller Coaster, "The Tidal Wave," but others get their share of ridership, too, such as the Tilt-a-Whirl, Himalaya and ever-thrilling ferris wheels. Indoors are the bumper cars, where, younger children can also enjoy airplane and motorcycle rides and a kiddie carousel.
This tiny tot merry-go-round is housed in the same building as the Trimper family's "heirloom" ride: a fully restored Herschell-Spillman carousel. Bought by a Trimper family member in 1902 the carousel remains in use and is one of the oldest in continuing operating in the United States. This carousel contains 45 hand-carved wooden animals, three chariots, and one rocking chair. Most of the animals are prancing horses, but others include a lion, long-necked giraffe, frog, chicken, ostrich, pig, tiger, zebra, camel, antlered deer, a billy goat, a dog and a dragon.
