The Vikings Are Coming To Ashbourne
The Vikings have made their maiden voyage to Ashbourne. The Viking Voyage is the newest ride experience to open in Tayto Park, as it continues to add new attractions. With over 10,000 tonnes of concrete, 500 tonnes of steel, 1.7million litres of water and 5,000 bundles of straw, the flume track is 700m, takes about 5 mins and reaches speeds of 60kph.
Tayto wanted to create a huge splash to celebrate the opening of Ireland’s largest flume ride and we planned something extra special to promote the opening of the water ride. Currently, a Viking long boat is teetering on the edge of a building on Camden Street. The idea around the 3D banner was that we wanted to re-create the (terrifying) moment when you are about to drop on the ride and bring it to life in a fun and innovative way.
The campaign was planned by Vizeum and Source ooh, creative adapted by PML Group’s in-house team of designers, Design+, and the special built by Big Picture Media.
With the kids finishing up in school and the summer well underway, it is the perfect timing for the opening of the new attraction… all just 30 minutes away from Dublin.
In addition, Tayto is running copy on 48 Sheets, Bus Shelters and Super Rears for maximum roar in Dublin.

Taxi-hailing app Hailo has been renamed mytaxi following a merger between the two groups, which creates Europe’s biggest e-hailing app. A wide-ranging nationwide OOH campaign planned by Vizeum and PML announced the name-change.
“The first thing you’ll recognise is that the mytaxi app looks really familiar, the colour scheme is still the same – and the ‘Irishness’ that leant to the success of Hailo here is still visible, ” mytaxi’s General Manager in Ireland, Tim Arnold said.
This Irish feel was maintained with some very witty taglines by Guns or Knives.
Formats of note in Dublin included East Link Toll Domination, Bridges on Ballybough & North Strand Roads and a 240 Sheet in Ranelagh. A moving mechanical arm was added to a Golden Square on Cuffe Street to give the old app a proper send off.
Commenting on the merger, mytaxi CEO Andrew Pinnington said: “The mytaxi focus is on combining knowledge of what our customers need with real-time data to help our passengers move freely within the cities we service.
“We look to work in harmony with our drivers, and the cities and countries in which we operate to facilitate better movement in challenging and congested urban environments.”
