While the hours are not exact, if the weather is good, they will probably be running during the afternoon hours.

Hi Michelle,

I am glad you are coming during the weekend.  as Trimper's only has weekend hours now.  The rides open around noon to 1pm if the weather is nice.  And stay open til the early evening hour (or possible later depending upon the weather and crowds).  The outdoor rides at Trimpers are limited and I only saw a couple of them open this past weekend.  The rides on the pier, operated by Jolly Rogers are closed until the next season.  The arcades and the haunted house will be open as well.  For a thrill ride, try the OC Rocket.  They operate to times each weend day at 11am and 2pm.  My son and I just rode the OC Rocket on Saturday and the weather was perfect.  Also, play a round of miniature golf or two at the Old Pro Golf Courses.  They are open till 10pm.

Trimper's and Jolly Roger have both closed their outdoor rides for the season. Trimper's indoor rides are not on a fixed schedule, but are often open from noon to about 5pm on Saturdays and Sundays if the weather is nice.

There may be some rides open this weekend as my fellow Insiders have mentioned. Marty's Playland will be open for sure. Ripley's may be open, but will most likely close early since it's off season. And don't forget, this weekend is Endless Summer Cruise In weekend and that end of the boardwalk will be HOPPING with activity and plenty of people. The inlet will be packed with wonderful cars and vendors, along with the Convention Center.  Plus there is a craft show at Gold Coast Mall and a fishing tournament at Bahia Marina on 21st St. on the bay.  And remember to check out all of the restaurant specials during this week because it's restaurant week in OC!  Have a great time!
