Special Needs Day at Trimper Rides

Trimper Rides will expand on an existing event to help those with special needs. May 21, is Special Needs Day at Trimper Rides. Groups that support special needs should reach out to Trimper Rides to receive a discount on ride passes that day.

In 2020, Trimper Rides welcomed the, Autistic Children’s Support Group of Worcester County, a group started by a Trimper Rides Board Member and Shareholder, Wendy DiBou and has welcomed them back every year. Each year Trimper Rides meets with Wendy and coordinates with her group leaders to bring those that are part of ACSGWC an opportunity to enjoy the park as a group. In efforts to make the event extra memorable, Trimper Rides has worked with our staff to educate them on how to best help.

This year, Trimper Rides is opening the invite to a larger community of special needs, by inviting more special needs groups to participate.

To further help guests, Trimper Rides again utilized Wendy as a resource. At her suggestion an experience document was created. After direction and recommendations a one-page description of places guests may encounter and what they could expect if they came to a ride or food service station was created. Please see the attached document, Learn About Trimper Rides Experience.

Trimper Rides also is partnering with the Ocean City Life Saving Museum as a ‘quiet place’ that day.  Anyone attending Special Needs Day may go to the Life Saving Museum that day to get away from the lights and sounds of the park. The Life Saving Museum will not be noise free, but it will not have all the sensory stimulation of the park. There will be no additional cost for entry into the Ocean City Life Saving Museum on May 21 for people participating in Special Needs Day.

Learn about this Trimper Rides Experience on their website at https://www.trimperrides.com/trimper-events/special-needs-day-at-Trimper-rides/

It is also available on the Trimper Rides app under Accessibility.  https://trimper.ourloyaltyapp.com/

Guests must have a code for a discount & all codes are provided through an organization. All organizations requests must be received by May 12. To receive a discount code call  410-289-8617 or email marketing@trimperrides.com
