Viking Ship Play Area

In May of 1988, the Norway pavilion opened at Epcot. 10 years later in 1998, a large Viking Ship was added outside the pavilion as a play area for Epcot's younger guests. Welcoming children to the age of the Vikings, the ship was situated just outside Norway's restrooms.


Though reasons are speculative at best, in 2008 the ship was demolished and the play area turned into a large flower bed. Some pieces of the ship, including a shield from the hull and its unusual dragon head can be found in the old location amongst the "ruins".
