Cú Chulainn is a wooden roller coaster located at Tayto Park in Ashbourne, Meath, Ireland.

Etimology[edit | edit source]

Based on the Irish mythological hero Cú Chulainn.

Design[edit | edit source]

Every report from opening day lists it as the longest wooden coaster with an inversion, despite it having no inversions at all. (This may refer to the over-bank turn, don't tell Mr. Tayto all this)


Trains[edit | edit source]

2 trains with 12 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in a single row for a total of 24 riders per train.
