One attraction I always looked forward to was the Trimper's Haunted House ride, although I feel like it was closed more times than most when I'd be on vacation. Which I get. It's been up since the 60s, so it's gonna have some issues. But I only got to ride it ONCE! But, man, what a fun memory it was. My Aunt Kay, who I was very close with(and in fact, was the person who introduced me to Tales From The Crypt) suggested I go on it with her after my mom and cousins refused. So, being the brave 11 year old I was, I accepted. I'm glad I did. Sure, it was a corny, outdated and unscary cart ride through a beat up haunted house with cardboard and wooden decorations, but good gosh it made me laugh. My aunt and I got off the ride at the end and laughed our butts off. Definitely one of my favorite memories of visiting OC!
To see what it looks like now(well, circa 2011), check out this video I found on YouTube:
