Thrasher’s® French Fries was founded in 1929 by Mr. J.T. Thrasher. In 1974, Charles “Buddy” Jenkins purchased Thrasher’s French Fries, refusing to alter the original recipe or cooking process. The unique concept of simply selling the best-tasting French fry ever eaten quickly became an Ocean City icon and has remained a

tradition for almost 100 years.

Jolly Roger Park® is comprised of SpeedWorld®, Splash Mountain®, Jolly Roger Mini Golf®, Jolly Roger at 30th Street® and Jolly Roger at the Pier®. Founded in 1964 by Jenkins and Arnold Palmer, Jolly Roger Park now offers a wide range of family-friendly fun in Ocean City with rides, amusements, games, waterslides and more.
