Primeval Whirl Closure

Primeval Whirl in DinoLand U.S.A. at Disney's Animal Kingdom has been a seasonal ride for some time. But the carnival-style attraction is no longer seen on park maps, nor is there any description of it. stopped by the other day and noticed that the attraction vehicles have been removed from the track. You can get a look at what they saw at the link above.

Officially, the WDW website shows lists the attraction "Temporarily Unavailable." However, there are "No Times Available" all the way out from now through January 2021.

Honestly, I had never been on this ride. Carnival rides have never made me feel safe and though I know that this wasn't packed up and moved constantly I just couldn't wrap my head around it.

How did you feel about Primeval Whirl? Will you miss it if there is no return?

I've read it's not coming back, and I am sad about it as I quite enjoyed it.

Was lucky enough to ride it in January twice with MrHub when we were at AK for the after hours party. At least we still have Goofy's Sky School in DL that is similar.

I've ridden it a couple of times. It wasn't a must do.

We never really liked it before but it was really fun to ride it with Jan! We actually rode it twice in a row, that was a good finally.
