TrimpersRides[Book: Monica Thrash and Brandon Seidl – 2014 – 16x23cm – 130 Pages – Many B&W photos]. “No trip to Ocean City, Maryland, is complete without a visit to Trimper’s Rides. The unforgettable bright lights, carousel music, and elated screams from rides on the Tidal Wave are cherished memories for generations who return to the park annually. The evolution and success of Trimper’s 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.” Chapter Points: Acknowledgments; Introduction; A Leap of Faith; The Calm after the Storm; The Carousel Building; Come Take a Dark Ride; Midway Magic; Trimper Life.
