PHOTOS: Right Track Goes Extinct at Primeval Whirl As Demolition Continues at Disney’s Animal Kingdom

Primeval Whirl has been closed officially for over a year now and the demolition is well underway at the attraction in Chester & Hester’s Dino-Rama at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Last week, we saw the façade beginning to be dismantled and the lift hill was taken down at the beginning of the month. Let’s take a look at where the project sits today.


Being such a large footprint in such a small area of Dinoland, USA means that the construction site can be seen from almost everywhere within Chester & Hester’s Dino-Rama.


The entrance marquee is surrounded in construction walls. The entire right track is gone now.


The sign for the ride is still up, though it does look weathered and tired.


The façade has started to be demolished, with the same jagged edge left as was seen last time we checked in.


Seating areas occupy some of the surrounding space in the parking lot themed land.


The entire right track has been demolished, though the material is still piled within the site in places.


The right side track is all but gone, and the left side track is in progress.


Much of the construction debris is still littered around the site.


Some of the decorations remain as construction crews take the entire structure down at one time, rather than pulling it apart piecemeal.


Construction is ongoing and WDWNT will keep an eye on the project as it progresses. Be sure to check back with us for more on this story as it develops.

  1. Hate to say it, but I’m happy to see this ride go. Would like to see more rides keeping in character with the area. Maybe a cruise ride like the Jungle Cruise, but with dinosaurs.

  2. I loved that ride. 🥺🥺😢😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭
