This week, as we continue our tour of Hester & Chester’s Dino-Rama in Dinoland, USA at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, we stop at Primeval Whirl. Primeval Whirl is and under-loved and under-appreciated spinning mouse coaster and my favorite coaster in all of Walt Disney World. Granted, I am not a huge roller coaster person but I have ridden every one at Disney World and Primeval Whirl is my favorite.
A few weeks ago my friend John from BigFatPanda.com made some disparaging remarks on Facebook about my beloved coaster. I told him it was my favorite and he suggested we ride it together and record our adventure so on June 28th I met John for a fun-filled day at Animal Kingdom. I hope you enjoy our video:
I don’t know when I have laughed so hard. Poor John is truly scared by this ride. He is scared for most of the reasons I love this ride.
- To be true to the Dino-rama theming, it appears to be a ride that belongs to a traveling carnival. Thus it appears less safe than Disney’s other coasters.
- It spins! The tilt-a-whirl fan in me LOVES that Primeval Whirl spins after the two drops.
- The camel back bumps at the end of the ride. John hates them because they are a bit jarring I love them, especially if you are still spinning and not facing forward as you go over them.
Primeval Whirl is a Fastpass attraction and you must be 48 inches tall to ride. I suggest you try it once and for your own opinion.
If you have ridden Primeval Whirl, I’d love for you to leave your thoughts about this ride in the comments.
