Primeval Whirl

Primeval Whirl becomes stroller parking & seating area in the Animal Kingdom. The construction walls are down. Fans have been installed, and Primeval Whirl is no more! Removed recently from the My Disney Experience App, all traces of the ride have been removed.

Now in its place is blue walls and stroller parking signs. In what will obviously become a seating area, a fresh coat of paint, and orange fans are now in place, along with a large Stroller parking sign. We also saw construction workers painting something behind the wall but no clue what is going on yet.

There has been no word from Disney yet on what may replace the demolished ride.

Primeval Whirl officially opened to the public on March 31, 2002. It was the first roller coaster to open at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Primeval Whirl received mixed reviews from guests, as some praised the theming and dual-track ride experience, but others criticized it as not being up to Disney standards. Many guests only saw a cheap carnival with off-the-shelf rides and games sitting in a cracked asphalt parking lot. In reality, it was all carefully designed and constructed to be a loving tribute to the roadside attractions between the 1940s and 1960s before the Interstate Highway System rendered the old routes obsolete. The shabby asphalt was actually carefully textured concrete.
