Disney's Animal Kingdom® Theme Park
Kids, Tweens, Teens, Adults
Small Drops, Spinning, Thrill Ride
Due to the nature of the experience, service animals are not permitted on this attraction.
Take a trip aboard a spinning rollercoaster in this dinosaur-themed carnival-style attraction.
Hop inside a time-machine-styled contraption—created by research-scientist cousins Esther, Fester, Nester and Lester—and journey back to when dinosaurs ruled the earth. Climb a ramp and pass through a zany 4-ringed time portal before beginning a steady, swinging descent into the past.
A Trip to the Prehistoric Age
Sweep through a series of sudden dips and hairpin turns as your time machine unpredictably spins on its own path. Whiz by cartoon-styled dinosaurs hastily preparing for their impending extinction and glimpse a shower of kooky meteors signifying the end is close at hand. Thrill to twists and turns and glide through a fossilized jigsaw puzzle of dinosaur bones before leaving the past behind and making your way back to the present.
Primeval Whirl is part of Chester and Hester's Dino-Rama! in Dinoland U.S.A., home to fun for young ones.
The Story of Chester & Hester’s Dino-Rama!
After rare Late Cretaceous fossils were unearthed in 1947, a group of researchers decided to buy the dig area. But one small property—owned by locals Chester and Hester—refused to sell and instead opened a dino-themed carnival called Chester & Hester’s Dino Rama!
Today, the dinosaur-decorated amusement park is home to vintage-style attraction and games—and is a favorite with children amid the historic finds that continue to be unearthed in Dinoland U.S.A.
