From a screenshot of a YouTube vlog (Channel: Chris Franklin).

View of Log Flume construction at the end of November 2016. All that is visible over the fence is this building which most likely will be the station.
The Flume is to open in April 2017, most likely when the season starts on 7th April.

Interested to see what they are getting for 5.7 million euro.

Interview with Park Owner

http://blooloop.com/feature/tayto-park-irelands-theme-park/

He seemed rather secretive over the 2017 addition - even though we already know it is a log flume. Unless it is some other new attraction he is talking about. Or is it that the flume has some sort of special feature?

Interesting that he said they are looking at something else major for 2018. Has the previously announced 2019 coaster been brought forwards or is this another addition before that?

Interesting times for Tayto they certainly seem to be doing really well.

The Viking Voyage - Log Flume Announcement

Tayto Park has officially announced their new for 2017 Viking themed log flume called 'The Viking Voyage'.

No official opening date has been set for 'Viking Voyage' however Tayto Park reopens for its 7th season on 7th April. All that has been confirmed is the ride will be open this summer. Construction on the €5.7 million attraction is ongoing.

The founder of Tayto Park reckons it’s “one of a kind”. Raymond Coyle said: “We are delighted to announce our new and exciting attraction ‘The Viking Voyage' at the Park.

The water ride will be a first for the Meath attraction “We are dedicated to bringing cutting-edge attractions to Tayto Park and this particular ride is one of a kind. We are very excited to unveil it to the public in the coming months.” The flumeride will feature a whopping 1.7million litres of water.

Following previous comments that the ride would be extensively themed the announcement today confirmed the ride will be accompanied by an impressive Viking Village area which will feature five replica Viking ships and 20 life size Vikings.
Staff have been learning to use building methods from the Viking Age to create a really authentic experience, with over 10,000 tonnes of concrete and 500 tonnes of steel gone into the construction of the ride so far.

Viking Voyage - Interlink Super Flume - construction update

Tayto Park opened for the 2017 season yesterday so it gave me the chance to see the construction of the new ride. I was extremely impressed by the flume site - I did not really expect it to have so much theming.
The area comprises of a Viking Village next to a large fake mountain which the ride passes through a number of times.

Viking Voyage will feature 3 drops - one of which is backwards, and the ride will open in June!
