Trimper Rides Historic 130th Year of Operations Ushers in the Trimper Troupe

The oldest family owned amusement park celebrates milestone with new additions to the family.

Ocean City, MD – Trimper Rides, welcomes guests back for their 130th season with the official Trimper Troupe! Meet Murray, Gali, & friends—Trimper Rides’ new mascots! The Trimper Troupe consists of two main characters, Murray the Octopus and Gali the Crab, who are the absolute best of friends. The pals are joined by four more ocean critters, Trench the shark, Jetty the dolphin, Coral the seahorse, and Buoy the marlin. Guests will get to meet, take photos, and have a Trimperrific time with the characters during different occasions in the spring and summer.
The best opportunity to meet the Troupe will be on the Grand Re-opening Weekend, this Easter. April 8 & 9 will be filled with holiday related activities that feature the Easter Bunny along with members of the Trimper Troupe.
“Our Marketing Department, headed by Jessica Bauer, has been toiling away far before last fall with this incredible story and cast of characters that is sure to impress visitors of all ages. I am so impressed with their efforts and excited to share it with the community. These characters are lovable, relatable,  and will be a welcome addition to our park!” says Scott Savage, President of Trimper Rides.
Jessica Bauer, Director of Marketing at Trimper Rides stated, “We developed the Trimper Troupe for the guests we know and the ones we still have yet to welcome. We are on the Ocean City Boardwalk and steps from the beach, but if you haven’t been to Trimper Rides, how would you know about our amazing location? Making them sea creatures was intentional and we think giving them all different personalities makes them engaging.”
The Trimper Troupe will be showcased in social media, print ads, and throughout the park. These different avenues will give guests chances to find out more about the characters like their personalities, interests, and back stories.
Look for the mascots to be attending events in and around Trimper Rides & Ocean City.
