TAYTO PARK Ireland’s only theme park and zoo has officially opened its latest kid’s attraction – the Ladybird Loop.

The new ride is a spinning coaster for kids and allows visitors to the park to whirl their way around the Ladybird Loop figure of eight track in one of their very own ladybird themed carriages!*

A minimum height of 1.2 metres for entry, little ones of 95cm can be accompanied by a free adult to enjoy the twist and turns of this exciting new ride.

The new attraction will complement existing favourites such as the Viking Voyage water flume ride, the gravity-defying Rotator, the Power Surgeand The Cú Chulainn Coaster, Ireland’s first rollercoaster and Europe’s first wooden rollercoaster with an inversion.

Tayto Park Zoois home to an exceptional and diverse animal collection, from meerkats to big cats like the Amur Tiger, and a growing primate collection which includes the Squirrel monkey, Red-bellied tamarins and the Geoldi’s monkey.

The Park also hosts a selection of beautiful and colourful birds from around the globe, as well as the extremely popular World of Raptors birds of prey demonstration.  And for kids wanting to travel back in time, Dinosaurs Alive, Ireland’s only life-size animatronic dinosaur exhibition, features the mighty Tyrannosaurus Rex, Stegosaurus and Apatosaurus.

Visitors to Tayto Park can complete their very own Tayto Park Challenge by picking up one of the maps on entry from admissions and complete as many challenges throughout the day. Once your entry is complete, drop it off at the Crisp Collection Point upon exit and receive a #TaytoParkChallenge Certificate!

This season, Tayto Park welcomed back ‘The Show by Fossetts’, with four shows daily, families can enjoy a variety of incredible and daring acts, while checking out Ireland’s first driving school for kids ‘The Nissan Driving School at Tayto Park’.
