Get ready to embark on an epic nautical journey around the coast of ancient Ireland as you channel your inner Viking. Be warned, you will get wet! With 1.7 million litres of water, a Viking village and replica Viking ships, families can expect to feel the splash on this unmissable attraction. There is a fun surprise in the middle of Viking Voyage where guests get thoroughly soaked followed by a large dramatic drop at the end – don’t forget to smile for the camera! Parents who prefer to stay dry can go to the dedicated viewing point at the side of Viking Voyage for the perfect view of the last lift hill drop/splash impact.
