We're definitely sticking this on our 2017 to-do list.

Tayto Park has released a few glimpses of what is set to be one of their main attractions - a Viking-themed flume ride known as 'The Viking Voyage.'

The construction is made of over 10,000 tonnes of concrete and 5,000 tonnes of steel. Thrill seekers can expect to make a splash through 1.7 million litres of water as well as scope out a Viking village and spot 20 life-sized Vikings. 

To bring the ride together, Tayto Park have used Viking experts from Sweden and theming contractors who have worked in major worldwide theme parks and film sets including Disneyland and Game of Thrones.

Looks pretty impressive to us. The 'Viking Voyage' opens in June of this year. Who's coming with us?
