Primeval Whirl Ride Vehicles Being Tested as Attraction is Readied for Seasonal Operation
In what could be considered BREAKING NEWS for fans of the long-beleaguered Primeval Whirl attraction, today the ride vehicles have started cycling the track once again. This news comes hot on the heels of the info that we shared with you yesterday that the attraction would cease normal operation and become seasonal. However, current refurbishment calendars have Primeval Whirl closed through December 17, 2019, so this testing does not mean the attraction will necessarily open soon.
Work on fixing the attraction has not progressed much since its closure a few months ago, but today one of our reporters noticed they had started testing vehicles on the track. Seemingly whatever issue was plaguing the attraction has been resolved, or is at least close to being fixed, as ride vehicle testing is an important step to re-opening the attraction.
We still do not know what the issue was that kept the Dinoland U.S.A. coaster from operating for much of the summer, but we are glad to see it being tested once again. Refurbishment calendars as of today have the attraction listed as closed through December 17th, which is new information that seems to follow the news that the attraction would go seasonal. Previously, according to the calendars, the attraction was slated to re-open on September 29th.
