Primeval Whirl Reopens at Disney’s Animal Kingdom as Attraction Enters Seasonal Operation

We have some positive updates for everyone’s favorite roller coaster that’s located in Dinoland U.S.A. Guests were finally being let onto the attraction today, but according to guests, its operation status keeps fluctuating with it closing and reopening randomly.

Yesterday, we saw Cast Members testing the attraction, and all seemed to go according to plan, as it is now open to guests.

It was announced recently that Primeval Whirl would enter seasonal operation, meaning it will only operate during the busiest times of the year.

As with any attraction that moves to seasonal operation, operating hours can vary, so be sure to check before making plans to ride the attraction.

Stay tuned to WDWNT for updates on this story and many more.

On Monday there were 2 cast members stationed to tell guests that it was seasonal and not open that day. Seems like a waste of staff time unless the decision about whether to open it or not is so ad hoc that they need to do this.
