If you have a good head for heights, and are looking for a rollercoaster thrill this summer, then look no further than Tayto Park.
Cu Chulainn is the name given to the park’s newest ride, a 32-metre high wooden rollercoaster.
The wood to build the monster ride was brought all the way from Ohio, United States, as a special kind of wood is needed to build this type of rollercoaster.
Cu Chulainn is part of an overhaul at the park, which will also see a brand new 3D cinema, a new train ride, and generally improved facilities and amenities at the site.
The fee structure is also slightly changed; from this summer, it will cost €14 per person to access the park, with children under three entering free. Students and OAPs are €12. A new feature this year is that you can purchase an all-access wrist band for €15.
Tayto Park currently employs around 280 people, most of them on a part-time basis.
