This looks fun! Especially those first drops. Kinda looks like a double down with a turn in between. :)

^^^^ That's on a par with the park quality! :D
- I have to prove that NL1 is still alive! Pack-a-punch tracks are, I personally feel, a LOT of fun! :)
- IMO, the ride stats are not everything in most cases! Never rely on the big numbers showing how tall, fast or long!

Today was the media day so some pictures have surfaced. Hopefully it wont be long before a POV is out.

Here are some details about the ride:

-At the center of the attraction is a 60ft tall mountain and over 500 trees have been planted to recreate the Irish landscape from 1,000 years ago.
-It has 3 drops including one which is backwards.
-The ride uses 1.7million liters of water, 5,000 bundles of straw, 10,000 tons of concrete and 500 tons of steel.
-There are six stunning Viking replica ships throughout the ride, which will thrill 720 visitors per hour.
-Manufactured by Interlink.

I've heard some good reviews of fellow ECC members who were there as well for the media day. Apparently it's quite a good ride. :) I'm curious on the POV.

Seems like they have some theming left to finish on the first lift. Looks like a fun log flume!

^ Technically four, because of the two-stage drop.

^ The double down (Curved to the right, kind of...) is a neat addition to this ride! :D
