Animal Kingdom – Primeval Whirl

Animal Kingdom – Primeval Whirl

This roller coaster is a carnival rendition of the Dinosaur ride located nearby. In an interesting twist (no pun intended) the ride features free-spinning cars that spin as they travel along a twisting track of tight turns and sharp drops.

There is a 48″ minimum height requirement.

When to Go

Avoid visiting between 11:30 a.m and 4:30 p.m


It is not advisable to get a FASTPASS for Primeval Whirl until you’ve obtained a FASTPASS at Expedition Everest, Kilimanjaro Safaris and Kali River Rapids (if riding) as those attractions get longer lines making the FASTPASS more helpful.
