Origin Story of the Trimper Troupe

The waters off the shores of Assateague Island are where Murray and Gali call home. The neighboring shore always amused them. The swirling lights, & sounds of pure joy always intrigued them but they didn’t investigate because of Murray’s shy nature until one fateful day… 

Like all other days, the two meet up to share in frollicking in the waves. The duo’s playing extends into the night. The games they play are so much fun they do not notice the dusk approaching or the storm moving in. The seas pick up and sweep Gali away toward the unknown shore and out of Murray’s sight. Murray’s love for his friend trumps all his fears and reservations; he swims in the direction he last saw Gali go. He sees Gali on the new shoreline and his glee of finding his friend allows him the courage to meet her on the sand of the mysterious beach. They walk towards the lights and music and find a whole world of fun and families! The two soon find out the name of this magical place…Trimper Rides! They can’t wait to tell their friends about it!

Be on the lookout for Murray and Gali and the rest of the Trimper Troupe, all summer long! Follow Trimper Rides to see where and when The Troupe is at Trimper Rides. The Trimper Troupe is ready to take pics with your loved ones!
