Since The Viking Voyage opened to the public in Tayto Park in Ashbourne, County Meath last year, over 1000 people have taken the flume plunge

The Viking Voyage at the Park opened in Ireland’s favourite theme park and zoo, Tayto Park on June 15 2017 and to celebrate Tayto Park has arranged a host of Viking activities for all the family to enjoy over this weekend, June 16 and 17.
