Tayto Park announces approval for two new steel rollercoasters
One for all the adrenaline junkies out there.
Tayto Park spread a lot of joy earlier this week when it announced that they would finally be reopening its doors on 29 June, in line with Phase 3 of Ireland's reopening strategy.
And things are only looking up for the Meath theme park, as it announced today that a €15million investment was being put into two new steel rollercoasters for the park. According to a statement issued by the company today, the development will create 40 new jobs.
Speaking on the announcement, Founder of Tayto Park, Raymond Coyle said: "Today is a very exciting day for Tayto Park and Meath. This is the largest single investment in our history.
"We currently employ 420 people and not only will the new coasters add employment to the local economy, they are securing the future of the park."
Tayto Park spent over €1,500,000 on noise reduction methods in order to secure planning permission for the new rollercoasters. In today's statement, the company said that this involved designers reorienting the tracks to direct noise back into the park and away from housing in the area.
The only bad news is that the rides won't be open to the public until 2023.
