Wow. This park really looks like it is one to watch. I don't really know that much about water rides, but would any one know of any water ride in any park that may have cost around the same amount as this one is going to be. It would be nice to see a comparison, although I know that just because they are priced the same doesn't mean they will be the same
In regardes to the rollercoaster, 17 million is a very large sum of money for a small(ish) park like this to be investing. According to this article, which features a large piece on the Ireland area in Europa park, it seems possible it could be a Mack ride
'Mack revealed that he is hoping to come back over to Ireland in the near future, with a trip to Tayto Park in Ashbourne, County Meath, the first priority on the agenda.
But the visit may be more business then pleasure, with Mack divulging that talks are underway to bring a new rollercoaster over to the Irish amusement park.'
