Thrill seekers of Dublin, you're gonna love Tayto Park's newest high-octane water ride: Viking Voyage at the Park.

Having only opened to the public on June 16, the attraction is the latest offering from the ever-expanding Tayto Park.

The Viking Voyage Water Ride takes visitors on a journey through an authentic-looking Viking village and an epic flume ride through a staggering 1.7 million litres of water — so expect some big ol' splashes. 

A major feat of engineering, more than 10,000 tonnes of concrete and 500 tonnes were used in its construction. The structure also contains six replica ships and 20 life-sized Vikings — making a big day at the Park even more memorable.

This bad boy cost €8 million to make and it towers above the surrounding amusements at 60ft in height. 500 trees were even planted around the amusement to make the surrounding area appear more like something out of the Viking era... if you overlook the massive water ride at its centre, of course.

We hope you like bumpy rides because the Viking Voyage has got three drops along its five-minute journey, with one being 12 metres down and one being a backwards drop.

This ain't for the faint of heart.

Take a good look at it below.

Not too shabby, eh?

If you're unfamiliar with the Tayto Park, it's already bursting with amusements, such as the Power Surge, Sky Walk and the Cú Chulainn Coaster.

Now get a few adrenaline junkies together and plan your trip to Tayto Park this summer.
