PHOTOS: Primeval Whirl Ride Vehicles Removed From Track at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Due to Permanent Closure

Much like the dinosaurs themselves, Primeval Whirl has gone extinct at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, so we thought we’d stop by and pay our respects.

Meanwhile, the dinosaurs holding up the Chester & Hester’s Dino-Rama sign seem as happy as ever. (I take it nobody told them the news.)

Many of the lights remain on, including on the marquee, at least for the moment.

For now, these simple boards and chain ropes block the entrance, though that’s likely to change in the future.

As we reported yesterday, the ride vehicles have been removed from the track. Sadly, with the closure, those time machines will never spin again.

The exit is also boarded up.

You’ll need a time machine of your own to experience Primeval Whirl again. (I wonder if The Dino Institute would let me borrow one of theirs?)

I don’t understand why Disney can not give guests the common curtiosy of a simple, honest explanation of why the close or change an attraction instead of doing it in a shroud of mystery. If they did, I would say ok, I now understand thank you for satisfying my curiosity.

Well… always sad to see something close. But, let’s be honest, this attraction was never really up to Disney standards. It was more like Six Flags. Sad to see a part of Dino-Land close, but I hope that once things get up and running again that it can be replaced with something amazing to fit a Disney Park.
