Behind-the-scenes photos of Tayto Park’s new thrill ride are here!


Who doesn’t love roller coasters that defy death and get the adrenaline pumping?

Well, Tayto Park’s new thrill ride will be right up your alley, but it’s got a bit of a twist.

Instead of flying along the tracks of the new Viking Voyage, thrill seekers will be propelled by a constant jet of water.

The park’s legendary Cú Chulainn Coaster will remain its main attraction, but Tayto Park bosses hope the new ride will rival its big brother.

The Viking Voyage will be filled with 1.7 million liters of water and will be surrounded by a Viking village, 5 replica Viking ships and 20 life-size Vikings.

Officials will also seek to help the environment by planting 5,000 trees, which will also help them recreate the Irish landscape of 1,000 years ago.
