Primeval Whirl

Primeval Whirl

An Attraction in Animal Kingdom

Last updated: August 18, 2020

This attraction's final day of operation was March 15, 2020.
The information below is provided for historical reference.
At a Glance

A small coaster with short drops and curves, Primeval Whirl runs through the jaws of a dinosaur, among other things. What makes this coaster different is that the cars also spin.

You can’t control the spinning—it starts and stops according to how the ride is programmed. Sometimes the spin is braked to a jarring halt after half a revolution, and sometimes it’s allowed to make one or two complete turns. The complete spins are fun, but the screeching-stop half-spins are almost painful. If you subtract the time it takes to ratchet up the first hill, the actual ride time is only about 90 seconds.

A Queens, New York, reader thinks Primeval Whirl is more evil than prime:

Primeval Whirl is a terrible ride on so many levels. My daughter nicknamed it Primeval Hurl.

As with Space Mountain, Primeval Whirl is duplicated side-by-side, but with only one queue. When it runs smoothly, about 700 people per side can whirl in an hour—a goodly number for this type of attraction, but not enough to preclude long waits on busy-to-moderate days. If you want to ride, try to get on before 10 a.m.
