Welcome to Tayto Park, Ireland's only theme park and home to Europe's Largest Inverted Roller Coaster! 

Tayto Park, Ireland’s favourite theme park reopens this Friday 7th April.

To celebrate the reopening, the team in Tayto Park have put together some egg-citing activities for the little ones this Easter.

Visit Tayto Park on Easter Sunday, April 16th, for a crime scene investigators inspired event! Mr Tayto is looking for help from some egg-cellent detective’s this Easter to help him solve the mystery of ‘Who stole the egg'? He knows it was of the animals in the zoo - but he doesn't know which one!

Kids can visit the crime scene to collect clues to unlock the mystery of the disappearing egg! All participants will receive a delicious chocolate egg at the end of their visit.
Older kids and adults looking for their next adrenaline rush can immerse themselves in a host of exhilarating activities too! Ride the infamous Cú Chúlainn Coaster and try your hand at rock climbing and sky walking before taking a tour around the legendary Tayto crisp factory. Thrill seekers will enjoy the hair-raising Power Surge, Endeavor and Windstar attractions.

This June, Tayto park will welcome a host of new attractions to the park including ‘The Viking Voyage at the Park’, a one of a kind, Viking-themed flume ride.
